Its a pretty good tv. toshiba is like a mid level brand. It might not be top of the line but it is igood enough for the average person and still reasonably affordable. Not one of the garbage ones that break in the first year. After seeing some of the options it is as good as I would recomend anyone get unless you are ready to make the leap to 3d tv. Personally I dont think we are there yet, so a standard 2d makes more sense. This is good enough to be worth it, but not too expansive you cant upgrade to 3d tv in a few years when it become more wide spread and affordable and quality improves. Picture Quality refresh rate is ok, could be a little better like on the high end ones Sound Quality built in speakers Durability seems alright so far Design it looks like a tv, nothing special good or bad Performance overall happy. Had for over a year and so far no real problems. built in sound isnt perfect and sometimes on the fastest of fast pace movie scenes you can slightly notice the refresh rate. Overall you get a pretty good tv, but not top of the line for a respectable price.
