Toshiba 42WL58

Sharp, smooth picture ; Dual HDMI and multiple other inputs ensure good connectivity ; Seems to have overcome the smearing effect common to LCD TVs ; Side-mounted ports allow easy access when wall mounted ; Resolution of 1366x768 ; Reflection-free...

I have the 32 inch version of this model but the comments would apply to both. A very stylish designed LCD screen, with good if not perfect resolution along with nice audio from the bottom mounted speakers. But you need to study the owners manual to...

Good looking, good resolution and few reflections. Nice audi from the bottom mounted speakers.

The remote needs a degree to use. After a year it is still not natural to use. Ours failed after 6 months but Toshiba replaced with new. No digital tuner.
