Best HDTV For This Price

By 

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Toshiba - 40 in. HDTV TV:

We have been fans of Toshiba for years, going back when TVs were giant boxes with cathode tubes and dinosaurs roamed the earth.  We still have a Toshiba CRT in perfect condition from over 10 years ago and a 37" Regza LCD from over 4 years ago.  We purchased this 1080p Toshiba over a year ago so that the 37" could be moved the bedroom and replace a dying Hitatchi tube TV.  The price was remarkable, about half that of a Sony or Sharp and still offered an amazing picture and sound quality for high-definition signals.  It was even an improvement on the 37" which was only 1080i maximum, so Blu-Ray or PS3 gaming was no longer obsolete.  This TV is fantastic and has a ton of inputs currently allowing us to plug in a VCR, DVD player, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, a Playstation 3, and, for a brief time, a laptop.  Some might not agree but I think the sound on a Toshiba set is above what you expect from a television, although it does need to be turned way up high for DVDs and video games.  The biggest draw back I have had with this Toshiba, and my old 37", have been the contrast ratio.  Most LCD TVs have some contrast problems, it's an inherent problem with all LCDs, other than LED-lit.  Toshiba has some of the worst contrast ratios among the top brands and do not offer any sort of "dynamic contrast" mode that others try to sell you on.  Most of the time Toshiba won't even tell you what their contrast ratio is, but it is lower than what other companies claim there's is.  This makes dark colors come out poorer than they should appear. 

Toshiba has been a paradox in the electronics market for years:  a company that makes quality products for a small price.  As a bargain hunter this has set them apart from other companies for years, and their continued quality has kept me coming back to them.

best tv I ever owned

Comments about Toshiba - 40 in. HDTV TV:

I wanted to wait for the kinks to be worked out of flat panel tv's before I bought one. When i did, I bought an Insignia. Horrible mistake. I then bought this Toshiba and I love it. Great picture and good sound with a lot of options. I liked it so much I bought a 32" Toshiba for another room.

Nice 40" Screen

By 

from Cin-Cin, OH

Comments about Toshiba - 40 in. HDTV TV:

I won this Toshiba Regza flat panel TV from a contest in August, 2009.  I never would have bought a TV this large, but it was free.  It also worked out great because I don't have cable TV, which means I didn't have to fool with a converter box with this LCD HDTV.

I set up the whole thing myself, which took a little bit of time reading over the Owner's Manual.  I also had to buy a new antenna.

Overall, I have been very happy with it.  The picture is very clear, and the colors are especially vivid.  The Dolby Volume is outstanding.  Of course, it comes with a remote that is easy to operate.

Every now and then, some of the UHF channels will lose frequency, and I will have to rescan all the channels, and sometimes have to move the antenna around.  I seem to have the most trouble trying to get FOX and a particular local station.  If worse comes to worst, I just watch my other TV in the living room.

One nice feature of this particular LCD is the backlight technology.  It adjusts the lighting of the picture on its own, depending on your room light conditions.

All things considered, a great TV.
