I was pleasantly surprised at the overall quality.


I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I have received numerous compliments on the great look of the picture and the cabinet. I'm a production/post-production professional so high audio-video performance is important for me. Most of all, I love it...

Great picture. Crisp, colorful and vibrant. Easy menu navigation. Lightweight. Very nice piano black finish. There are plenty of connections, especially since I use an AV receiver with lots of HDMI inputs. The Toshiba even has a PC input

Some have complained about the audio quality but I use a Denon AV receiver for great surround so it is no issue for me. I wish it had PIP but I didn't expect it for the price

Amazing TV for living room or bedroom


Toshiba has done it again! Spent just over a month researching different tv's and was worth all the effort. Some say they have concerns about the sound. Don't listen. I have it on 4 and can hear it over my kids. Picture is as sharp as it gets. Toshiba...

Outstanding picture. Sounds lovely. Remote is self explanatory and has easy access buttons for pic size and quality. Sleep timer up to 3hrs. Easy set up

Have not figured out why commercials go away from full screen but probably only has to do with the way they stream it or air it. I have absolutely no bad things to say about this set

Gr8 Product


We purchased this TV about two yrs ago and we are super satisfied with it great price and really gr8 picture at all angles no problems at all but I do suggest a surround sound system as the onboard speakers just dont cut it for me.

Good Buy


Great picture and light. I am happy with it. Had a dead pixel spot in the corner. Annoying, but not enough to trouble with sending back. Puts out a lot of heat. May not be a good choice for an enclosed area but the manual says the same.

Good Choice for economy and size


Picture is very nice, easy hookups, very clean appearance, programs itself when first powered up, sleep timer works great (10 min intervals. Does not display time, and it takes a little getting used to that it takes about 20 seconds to warm up but...
