Advantages: Good picture, sound and nice looking set
Disadvantages: Can get bigger sets for similar money now
We've had our Toshiba 32C3035D 'Regza' for nearly 2 years now. We bought it from Comet for £469.99 but as the prices of LCD TVs has come down it can be had for much cheaper these days. Our last TV was a Toshiba and we got nearly 20 years of use out of it, we also had a Toshiba portable TV and video recorder and were happy with those too. Also, when I worked at Currys many years ago, I remember the 'Mastercare' engineer telling me that he rarely got Toshiba products in for repair. A good sign! For those reasons we wanted to buy Toshiba again.
The TV is quite unfussy and sleek looking, and comes with a nice little silver stand as pictured (which compliments the silver border around the TV casing) but can also be wall-mounted. It comes with remote control which is simple enough to use, and the basic on/off, channel and volume functions are also located discretely on the side of the TV casing. It also has built-in Freeview, although we don't use this as we have SKY. It also has ample connections on the back, we have a SKY box, DVD recorder and Playstation 2 all connected without any issues.
The picture quality is very good. The sound quality is also very good considering the small size of the speakers (small). I'm sure bigger TVs with bigger speakers or external speakers and sub-woofers etc. would sound better, but for us the sound is perfectly adequate. Both picture and sound have various settings but after initial setup we were happy with everything and haven't touched it again so I don't feel I could comment further on those.
At the price point of this Toshiba you could probably buy a bigger set now, or one with more features, but as a simple, good quality, reliable (so far) set you won't go far wrong with one of these.
Summary: Very nice TV from a good quality brand
