On unpacking the first things that struck us were; nice to have the stand attached from the factory, and the weight, or lack of it! A whole 9Kg (without stand attached as we were wall mounting it) made it feel very light in comparison with our "main" television, an older model LCD 32" Panasonic but we quickly discovered where the weight saving has been made and more on that shortly. One thing to say is that the quality of construction/finish is first class, with a thin side bezel, slightly thicker upper and lower bezels. Very classy and not at all "budget" looking.
So, then we connected it up in the spare room and (having found the tiny on/off switch at the side of the set!) waited. As per other reviews (and as it quite clearly states in the instruction manual) it does take a while (30-45 seconds or so?) to fire up with a picture and the menu response is slower than other models we've seen but it is acceptable. Auto-tuning and following the on screen prompts makes setting up a doddle. We also like the rather large, slightly retro-looking, remote control with its big chunky buttons, although agree that having volume/channel controls in the horizontal plane is counter-intuitive.
Picture quality; on SD, not bad, not bad at all, but then we were trying to compare it to a Panasonic which cost more than double two years ago! At least the Toshiba comes with Freeview HD built-in and this is where it excels!Read more ›
Fantastic service from Amazon -it arrived within a couple of days of ordering with free delivery -amazing!
Easy to set up out of the box, the tv spent about 5 mins scanning the channels and was ready to go. Even the stand was already fixed to the base (although I will wallmount at some point)
The picture from the freeview HD channels is amazing and it does a pretty good job on the normal channels. I have had to fiddle with the settings to get the best picture for me (there is a backlight energy save mode which I turned off -it makes the picture too dark in my opinion -and I set the colour temperature to "cool" -more natural)
The sound is good in my opinion now I have tweaked it -I turned everything to max on the equaliser and the "effect" on.
I have this tv linked to an upscaling dvd player for normal dvds. Some are amazing quality with 1080p upscaling (eg. even dark scenes from 'the blue planet') but some are a little grainy, especially on dark scenes. The results seem to be variable depending on the dvd (do they come in different qualities?) One thing which has helped with this is tweaking the settings on the dvd player -it is now running in enhanced quality to improve the contrast between light/dark. The tv also has a "film mode" which shows the film in 24fps which improves the action scenes.
I don't game so I can't comment on gaming capabilities. It can also accept a usb stick, which I haven't tried.Read more ›
It arrived in two days, before even my account was debited! Straight out the box, stand attached, smart looking and a few minutes later - hey presto better viewing than on my 42inch top of the range Panasonic plasma which is only 18 months old and cost 3 times the price! Gutted!
Whilst I agree with "full throttle" the menu is a little slow to react, its better than any other supermarket shelf TV, which will be the same price if not more, the likes of which should be avoided - honestly what make is that you say?!! But at least it keeps the channel you were watching volume on whilst the program menu is displayed so you can still hear what you were watching and decide to go back if you hear something good.
If you don't mind 50Hz refresh, then this is a great TV.
You are one click away, hope this helps you!

Great value for money, and a reasonable set - until it packed up after some four years of fairly minor use
