    5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality 7 April 2008
    I took the decision to replace our old Toshiba 28" monster with this new LCD tv - I am over the moon with it! The picture is excellent, the sound is amazing too and the contrast ratio is better than most rivals - some of which are much more expensive. If you are looking for a decent LCD television you wont buy much better from this price range - go get one!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars I've just bought 2! 6 April 2008
    Having spoken to a variety of salesmen I quickly realised that when buying Plasma TVs the majority of the time your paying for brands.

    This model of TV has the greatest picture contrast available (as far as I am aware) at 20,000 to 1. And I was so impressed with it's credentials that I bought 2 of them. Since living with the TV I am impressed with both the picture and the sound and am yet to find fault with it.

    One salesman informed me that it will not view Blu-Ray DVDs to their potential... but I can live with that!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Purchase and install with ease 3 Nov 2008
    I purchased the item on Friday and by next day 10:00 saturnday it was delivered. It was very easy to assemble and install. Picture quality is amazing with no ghosting what so ever. The refresh is excellent. The sound only needed slight adjustment with an increase in bass for the Sky+ box. All other settings are ok. This product is absolute value for money and worth every penny. I didn't even have to change the setting on the all in one remote control as our old set was a 28" Toshiba CRT. I am very pleased with the product and if you are thinking of comparing this product with any other, the toshiba wins hands down.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking deal 14 Nov 2008
    Verified Purchase
    As usual with Amazon, great delivery, ordered on Sunday night, delivered 10am Tues.Free 1 months trail of Amazon prime)
    Set up was really easy. Great picture quality and sound. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that it takes a while to switch channels(up to 12 secs from pushing the button to the channel selected having an info free screen). This is my first flat screen lcd tv so I emailed Toshiba, they replied within a couple of hours saying this was normal. It's a bit of a pain when channel hoppping but I can live with that.

    After a few weeks of owning this TV, I've decided to add to my review. Still can't fault the picture/sound quality and the overall look of the TV, but the time taken to switch channels is starting to get a little annoying. Also, the response time when scrolling up/down in the "tv guide" is slow. Sometimes you think the tv hasn't received the signal, go to scroll again, then jump 2 places.
    I don't know if this is normal(it would appear so, given the response from Toshiba) with these TV's, but if it is, it is a little dissapointing.
    I would drop this down to 3 stars because of this but it appears that you can't adjust the star ratings.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, but..... 12 Jan 2009
    Installed my new Toshiba on the wall in my kitchen on Saturday, looks great! Unit is well finished and has a quality look to it, no tackey, shiney silver bits. Auto install worked well and picture quality is very good. Sound quality though, is dissappointing. Using the built-in speakers I was not expecting thumping bass and crisp treble, but even after adjusting all sound settings can't get away from the tinny sound even with the Bass Boost at maximum.

    5.0 out of 5 stars great value 9 Aug 2008
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this in combo with a Philips DVP5980 - Multi-region capable DVD Player With 1080P Upscaling and HDMI. I mostly watch stuff on computer but wanted to get back to a TV/DVD setup - but didn't want to buy high end stuff at this stage. I have previously had CRT wide screens (32" Metz, Philips) and didn't expect this to measure up to CRT...

    This also needs to be used by my 86 year old uncle so that had to be taken into consideration.

    We are also in Norfolk with marginal Freeview reception so the dual tuner (this set can also do straight analogue reception) was also a consideration.

    Ok that's the context.

    As a 'comparatively cheap' 720p LCD TV this thing is great value (350)!

    First bonus - the freeview tuner is good enough to pick up most (not all) freeview channels from Sandy Heath it seems.

    Second, remote is great for my Uncles use - on/off, channel up/dn, volume up/dn are the biggest most obvious buttons and should be as easy to use as 'old tv' remote (I tend to use my Logitech Harmony 785 Advanced Universal Remote - Universal remote control - infrared...)

    Viewing wise - out of the box its as bright as hell and over saturated - it has plenty of adjustment - so you should be able to get a picture which pleases your eyes - plenty of contrast - daytime and nightime are both fine...

    It really shines if you give it a good source - eg a music video via hdmi upscaling to 720p - crystal clear picture. Very little motion artifacts.

    Third bonus, the sound out this tv is pretty amazing for internal speakers - so although I miss my old surround system like heck - this is a very good stereo alternative with ample volume.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Spot a superb picture 31 Oct 2008
    By H. Leah
    I procrastinated over which TV to get to replace our existing LCD - and I'm so glad I bought this!

    The picture is superb to the point that instead of watching what was going on I was mesmerised by what poor skin the actors had! And the clothes that the actors were wearing looked as though I could just reach over and stroke the material.

    It was really easy to set up as well although I was bemused trying to find where the aerial went as everything else was so clearly marked.

    I'd recommend this TV to any of my friends.
