None. Avoid Toshiba at all cost.

You'll get better customer service from you cell phone company.

Good, low cost HD RPTV

 

This is one of the best deals if you are looking for a compact-size large-screen HD-capable TV.

Small size, only 20" deep, good picture quality, dual component inputs

No 720p support
