4 stars for the picture and overall quality of the TV. 1 star lost for the sound. Don't get me wrong, the sound is great, but smaller speakers mean less bass. if you want a deep base sound get a subwoofer and use the socket on the back for it (well planned Toshiba)

So picture quality. Brilliant. I bought a Toshiba upscaler DVD player, with HDMI connection (there are 3 on the back of this) Fantastic. Played a movie and no blur!

Got a Wii connected up, again sockets in the back for it, playing online James Bond, lots of movement in the game and no motion blur. I dont know how an Xbox or PS3 would compare having much higher resolution graphics with only a 50Hz refresh rate.

Setup was easy, onscreen menu, job done. It has built in freeview which it prompts you to install, but I have Sky.

There are preset picture choices for cinema, gaming etc, and the same with sound. If you are not sure leave it on the standard dynamic default setting.

Delivery was in 2 days on supersaver, which is awesome, but that is no guarantee you will get that (there is an amazon depot near here)

Overall
value for money 5 stars
appearance and functionality 5 stars
sound quality 4 stars (but only cause i dont have a subwoofer, yet)

Saw the same model in a well known store for £180 more than i paid, well done amazon.

As others have said, this is a great tv for the price. I am just writing this to let people know about the sky remote code for this tv is 0527. I had great difficulty getting this code, so i hope this helps out those who are stuck.

I bought the 40-inch version of this TV from Amazon (rather than a Marketplace seller) in January as a present for my mother but unfortunately we have not had a very good experience with it.

So far, there have been 2 defects with the TV. The first one was that the remote control unit was immediately defective at the time of purchase. This meant it was unable to set up the TV. Amazon sent me an account credit to cover the cost of buying a replacement control myself (rather than ship the whole thing back to them), which fixed the issue.

The second issue which has just developed is that the sound is no longer working on the TV unit itself. Amazon have agreed to replace the entire unit, and I'm waiting for this step to happen right now.

So in terms of customer service, I don't really have anything to fault Amazon. They have been pretty helpful and co-operative. However since the review is of the television, rather than of Amazon, then I have to rate this as not very good.

The TV itself when it was working performed pretty adequately, the image was quite good although I thought the sound was a bit 'murky' even after changing the settings. However since the build quality was so poor I am rating this as 2 stars.

TV arrived well packaged, i have wall mounted it and the base was a doddle to remove and no visible 'hole' where the base was. The materials are good quality and it is solidly built - even the remote has a aluminium trim and looks good Installation/set-up was easy and well though through menu driven from the remote. didn't need the handbook it did it itself.
Sound - for an LCD TV very good, way better than the Samsung it replaced.
Picture - excellent again better than the unit it replaced.
TV has 4 HDMI slots which is handy, i currently need 3 and have room for expansion.

I would definitely recommend this TV and it is excellent value for money.

This TV is a thing of beauty, its design looks amazing, its a great size, the picture quality is amazing, I love everything about it.
I primarily use the TV for gaming, my PS3 works perfectly on it with a crystal clear 1080p image and a brilliant refresh rate, I can do fast paced gaming on a large screen, makes everything easier.
I have absolutely no problems or issues with this product and for the price it is an absolute steal, I would definitely recommend it to anyone, I'm one very very satisfied customer.

Not made by Toshiba! It is simply a model Toshiba have had re-badged for them. It's a product by Vestel, which is a company that makes most of those supermarket TVs you see for sale in Morrisons, Tesco etc. Same as Digihome, Technika, Bush, Alba, Techwood...! There is NO difference, aside from the badge!

You will be getting poor picture quality, poor build quality, poor software/UI quality, poor sound quality and very poor reliability.

I am a repairer of TVs and Vestel have such a high failure rate it's disgraceful for Toshiba to be re-badging them. They rarely make it past 3 years. Common issues that have started popping up is the sound on these is dying, intermittent loss of volume or flashing power LED. Bear in mind, they are about 2 years old now so this is just the first wave of issues.

DON'T buy Toshiba unless you know it's actually made by Toshiba (you can look it up online.) These AREN'T, they are absolutely rubbish TVs.
