Buyer Beware - Firmware Issue regarding Backlight, 7 Jun. 2013
While this is a fully featured television at a good price, there is an issue with the backlight that seems yet to be addressed by Toshiba. I noticed that while attempting picture calibration, the backlight controls seemed to do nothing for the image. Only after a bit of fiddling did I find that if I was able to change the power mode from "off" to "eco" then back to "off", magically changing the backlight from "Low", "Medium" and "High" actually had an affect on the televisions image.
Unfortunately you have to go through this procedure every time you turn your television on, rendering calibration useless as it will always default to a certain backlight level.
After being in contact with Toshiba, and them confirming their own test equipment has this fault and that it seems to be an issue with the televisions firmware, I have been informed that... They don't see it as a major issue and the best that could be promised is a update to the firmware in the unspecified future.
So if you care about calibration or consistency of your television picture, I would suggest you give this product a miss. At least until they decide that it is an issue that could possibly provide their consumers some bother.
