This TV has everything. Plenty of ports to hook up all of your gadgets and systems and a display that simply kicks butt.
One of the best features is the fact that the quality of picture does not change based on where you are sitting so no more fights about who gets the best seat because they are all the best seat.
The quality of picture is far better than the quality of picture at my local cinema. The display is so good that I am certain that the quality of non-HD images being displayed through this TV either through DVD or a regular TV channel is enhanced.
It is extremely slim and light so fits well on walls, including stud walls and any TV stand that can handle a screen this large.
The sound quality from the built in speakers is fantastic and often means I save electricity on turning on my surround sound. This TV has plenty of scart, HMDI and sound ports and can be upgraded with cards.
I've been so impressed with this TV and everyone who comes to our house immediately gravitates towards this excellent piece of viewing technology. Hands down beats most other competitors for its sheer range of features and highly competitive pricing.
If you are thinking of buying a TV don't buy this one because I have it and I don't want anyone else to have something this good. It makes me feel special.
Whilst I have only owned my Toshiba television for a month and some may view my opinion as slightly biased due to the influence of the 'wow' factor I can honestly say this is a cream of the crop television.
The reason I chose this TV out of many others is the 'viewing angle'. To the people not captivated in specifics and details this basically means it doesn't go dark or change contrast at different angles. This was a big deal for me was because I often like to watch my television whilst in bed and the TV is mounted higher than my bed but it still makes for perfect viewing!
Even in the darkest of scenes everything is still clearly visible but not overly bright and fatiguing.
There are many ports/sockets/holes to make for an entirely compatible television, it has all the required ports for gaming consoles, I even managed to get my sega megadrive up and running on it :)
The big problem about some of this is that the aerial is on the back of the television. If you plan to just have it on the stand then that is not really an issue but if (like me) you plan to wall mount it then I suggest you plug in every socket that is at the back to make for easy reach afterwards because once it's on that mount it is not coming off without a fight!
The mount itself did not come with the television I had to buy that separately from curry's for £20 I'm sure you could find cheaper but I was in a hurry.
The television comes with little to no extras apart from a remote with batteries included, it is easy to use and quibble free.
The downside to this television in my eyes is that whilst the viewing angle is it's selling point I do find the default contrast/brightness of the TV too bright in some scenes. A shot of white on the screen in a dark room is a blinding sight. Turning down the brightness then ruins the darker scenes of the programme you are watching, you will need to reach a compromise somewhere. Apart from that fault and the awkward ports at the back I cannot fault this television.
It is very adaptable. It looks good. It sounds good and is sleek and thin
If like me you think a tv should not only work good but also look the part, this ones for you. Ultra modern with sleek lines, it also works like a dream.
The picture quality is excellent, the colour and sharpness gives the impression your actually there. When watching in HD it comes into its own, its like having a front seat at the movies.
Its very easy to hook up to all the gadgets, eg sky,dvd etc. When tuning in all you need is the remote and the tv screen takes you through it. Believe me if i can do it, anyone can. It takes you step by step.
For a large tv, its 46 inches its quite light and thin, and with no bulky back looks mimimalistic and modern. We bought glass stand as felt it looked better at eye level, but it can be wall mounted.
Toshiba are also very good if any problems arise, not that we've needed it with this tv but from past experiences.
The only downside is keeping the screen clean, but this is common with all the lcds and plasmas.
The cables and aerials run through the back, but you can also attach keyboard and gamestation to side, so your not rummaging at back. The menu, volume and channel can also be changed from side just in case that remote gets lost! Being at the side it doesnt spoil the appearance of the tv screen.
Overall the best of the best all you need is the popcorn.
