X-Mas came early for me this year!


My sole desicion for this LCD was PS3 compatibility. After being sold a Sony rear-projection WEGA that supposedly did 1080p, to then find out it only upscaled every source to 1080p with no 1080p inputs I decided to sell it and find a nice LCD. Great...

PS3 compatible, looks great even at 1080i. I've found the component looks better for some games though. HDMI with HDCP is definatley a plus. I've also tried the s-video and composite connections and they were all much clearer than other tube tv's I've...

No tuner or coax input, but if you have boxes for satelite or digital cable it should be no problem. I wish the remote had a button for each individual input, instead of having to cycle through them

Awesome Picture Quality


AMAZING for the price. Your foolish if you don't get it. I was when I bought the Sharp and realized how bad the picture quality was compared to the Toshiba. I then quickly took the Sharp back and got my Toshiba again. P.S. - I use this TV to play to...

AMAZING picture quality. The in-store comparison (yes, I bought it in a store, not on here. I would've bought it on here if I knew about it earlier.) showed how good this TV is. Compared to the Sony 32" LCD's next,this TV look about the same. And for...

No built in ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner. But, as I said above, no need to worry if you have a cable box or satellite TV

My first LCD Flat Panel TV...I love it


This is my first flat-panel LCD HDTV. Right away, the only thing wrong with it, is that it doesn't have any type of tuner, so you will need a Cable or Satellite box. But other than that, the picture and color accuracy is right on the money. The HD ...

Great crisp picture, good sound, and enough inputs.

No HDTV tuner...but I have a box

Very Good Deal for the Money


I purchased a comparably priced Westinghouse from Best Buy, but the colors just didn't pop, the actual viewing angle was narrow, and I couldn't get rid of a grey, dullness to the screen.

Picture brightness. Screen Display Modes - several formats to to choose from VGA-RGB computer connection

Contrast Spec is low, but difficult to see the difference. The high brightness makes up for it. A DVI connection would be nice

Superb deal!


I decided it was time to join the 21st Century and retire my 22 year old Toshiba 20" CRT to the guest room.

Price, picture quality, features

None for me, but no TV tuner built in

Toshiba LCD 32HLC56 32


I'm a loyal consumer of Toshiba products.

Everything the monitor has all the connections you could need. Bought this mostly for playing video games in my game room. A great compliment to this display is a sanus pffp lcd stand.

Only thing it's missing is tv tuner. but new that before purchasing.

Product Specifications

The Toshiba 32HL83 has 32" Theaterwide True 720p HD LCD display with built-in speakers and tuner. 500: 1 Contrast Ratio ensures a sharp, well-defined, clear image. CrystalScan HDSC upconverts all video signals (including 480i/p) to 1080i HD. This results in a significant reduction in jagged-line artifacts, which produces a smoother, more natural image. Selectable 540p, for users who want to display a progressive scan image from a progressive scan source, is available via the on-screen menu. 3D Y/C (4MB, 10 Bit) Digital Comb Filter with Vertical Contour Correction provides more accurate processing of RF and composite video signals for a sharper, cleaner picture This advanced Comb Filter significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricately detailed scenes. CableClear DNR+ Digital Noise Reduction circuitry optimizes poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable; this new video noise reduction system eliminates video noise (snow) for a clean crisp image. HD Window Multi-Scan 2-tuner POP now accepts 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i signals and can even display 2 different resolution signals at the same time. The split-screen function allows you to adjust the size of the POP boxes as well as displaying 16: 9 and 4: 3 images on the screen at the same time. The new 7 MultiWindow system allows you to view the main picture while viewing your favorites or doing a channel scan in the 7 smaller boxes.
