BEAUTIFUL PICTURE - as long as settings are corrected

 

This TV is not Internet-connected, so if that is important to you (it shouldn't), look elsewhere. Both my PS3 and TiVo boxes have Netflix, Pandora, Rhapsody, Vulu, YouTube, Amazon, Blockbuster streaming - so this is a moot point for me and most of you...

Provides all the features you need, and none of the features you don't ; Nice black levels and screen refresh seems to be ample ; Best deal for the money, by far

Image Stabilization feature renders picture cartoonish and soap opera-esc. TURN THIS FEATURE OFF. The remote is Spartan at best. You need a nice universal remote like the Logitech Harmony One. Did I mention the image stabilization feature is AWFUL

Great TV for the price!

 

I got mine for $750 at CompUSA. Hard to beat considering that my 42" model just 5 years ago ran me $1907 at Costco. Picture is good, value is good, and it is nice enough not to worry about the minute differences in the "HD" considering other models...

Huge screen. Low cost. Great picture. Light weight compared to my old 42" plasma TV

Base seems a little flimsy. Wish refresh rate was 240 vs. 120 especially with sports

Good value. Large picture size for low price.

 

Good choice for those on a budget. You can buy a better TV, but at a much higher price. With so many changes coming to digital TV's in the near future, it may not be wise to spend a lot of money on an excellent TV now when you ... Expand full review

Great picture size and quality. Reasonable number of connectivity options

Poor remote, Poor compatibility with AV receiver. Sync problem when HDMI signal is connected through the AV receiver. Had to run signal using HDMI directly into TV and then connect optical audio out to AV receiver. Not enough picture size octions

AMAZINGLY AWESOME picture!

 

This TV ROCKS! If youre lucky to find it at such a steal as I did, concider yourself fortunate because its almost a $1600 value!...freakin' awesome TV!!!!!!!!

Price:$899 (open box buy)/Picture quality/Matt finish screen to eliminate glare/Ease of use/Styling: I call it the "Stelth" because of its simple black silloette/"1-2-3" easy set up/...did I mention PICTURE QUALITY

Terrible speakers that are positioned REAR facing (hook this TV up to your sound system or sound bar!)...remote a bit small & buttons arent quite in the right place...but thats NOTHING compared to the pluses

Great Flat Panel TV! Recommended! =D

 

Was a bit irritated by the remote at first but you get used to it. Easy to setup. 10 mins. from box to power up.

Great picture (judder & blur not a problem). Deep Black. 120Hz. RGB Input. USB Input. Low price (got mine for $969.99 +tax). Easy to use features (once acquainted w/the remote). Easy access to Inputs. All the options you need and none you don't

Audio Out only in Optical Format. Remote buttons are placed a bit weird & the signal seems week (have to point it right at the TV)

Toshiba 55" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV 55HT1U

 

I bought this for the bedroom because it was a very inexpensive TV with a great picture, and it serves its purpose perfectly. Buy some speakers, and maybe a better remote, and you'll be okay.

Great screen for the dollar

Sound is the worst I've ever heard on a TV. I read several reviews prior to purchase and had already ordered external speakers. But before hooking them up I had to try out the stock speakers. The highs and voice sound like they're coming from a laptop,...
