Do Not Buy This TV


I purchased this TV on Jan 27 and less than 70 days later the mainboard had failed. It has been over 2 weeks since I contacted Toshiba and the part is still on back order with no eta of when it will be available. What's more, Toshiba's customer service...

When the TV was working, the picture was nice

Terrible customer service experience

Had tv for 6 weeks when it just died.


TV wouldn't turn on after 6 weeks. Toshiba's customer service says the power board is probably bad. First they said they would be out the next day to fix it, then it was 3-5 business days, then a week, then 1-2 weeks. Their product stinks and their...

the only thing I worry about is the light weight, so we are getting a wall mount since we are worried that the kids might knock it off the desk that it sits on. Also don't sit really close or the picture looks weird, from the couch it is amazingly...

This is DEFINITELY a Winner!!


I purchased the 40'' HDTV and I have never been so extremely happy with a product in the last 20 years. This is truly a product that is worth far more than the cost asked for it. The superior quality and clarity of both sound and picture is worth every...
