1 out of 5 eggsDON'T BUY TOSHIBA!

Pros: Nice picture, great price

Cons: TV Broke after a little over 2 months of use. The backlight panel is burned out as verified by Toshiba's certified repairman.

Other Thoughts: Product is under warranty, but Toshiba wants 1 and a half MONTHS before the replacement part arrives from Japan. They also won't expedite or give any compensation. DON'T BUY TOSHIBA unless you want your product to break and wait months for a replacement.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great screen for the dollar.

Cons: Sound is the worst I've ever heard on a TV. I read several reviews prior to purchase and had already ordered external speakers. But before hooking them up I had to try out the stock speakers. The highs and voice sound like they're coming from a laptop, and it simply can't produce any sound below 100hz.

Remote worse than I expected. You really do have to aim directly at the IR receiver. from 10 feet away I have to often hit buttons over and over again.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for the bedroom because it was a very inexpensive TV with a great picture, and it serves its purpose perfectly. Buy some speakers, and maybe a better remote, and you'll be okay.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent picture, issue with sound

Pros: Excellent picture for the price with impressive options for adjusting. Plenty of HDMI inputs (3, not 2 as someone noted... look on the side for the 3rd).

Cons: Remote works if you point it directly at the "eye" only. Biggest problem is the picture delay. The video is delayed some due to the processing. So if you have the sound coming out of the source directly into your surround sound amp, the sound comes out much earlier than the video. Well, the TV has an optical audio output, right? Hook this up to the amp, and the A/V sync is dead-on. Problem is, this TV only outputs stereo, not surround sound. So the only way you can watch a movie in surround sound with this TV is in stereo, or with the A/V sync WAY off. Third option is to purchase a newer amp. that has an A/V sync delay, then adjust it as needed (which mine does not have).

Other Thoughts: Most folks won't care about the audio problem I have, and for this price, stereo-only is not so bad. I have full-size speakers, so I get plenty of "rumble" with the explosions, anyway, and surround sound is a little bit of a gimmick, so what the heck?

5 out of 5 eggsWould go bigger if I could...

Pros: Wonderful picture...GREAT price... I now own 4 Toshiba HDTV's 26 & 32 w/DVD, 37 & now 55 and have NO problems(still added extended warranties for them) I have mine sitting on the base and it seems very stable. The sound seems better than I thought it would be, but I never had a surround system, but thinking about getting one.

Cons: AIT shipping is NOT UPS, I had to go pick up TV from the shipper's warehouse in order not have to wait 4 more days... I guess you get what you pay for...

Other Thoughts: I downsized from a 62 inch and missed the larger screen, but I raised the TV a little higher and I'm happier now...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV for a great price

Pros: After several weeks of research, and debating between various manufacturers and sizes (from 42" to 55"), I decided to take the plunge with a 55" when this TV dipped to $969. So far, I'm glad I did. I say "so far" because I'm only hooked up to basic cable; I haven't got the HDMI hooked up to the DVD yet, and I'm thinking I should get the value out of my investment by upgrading to an HD box from the cable monopoly. But, even with "just basic cable," the picture is bright, the size is impressive, there's no visible blurring on Sportscenter, and it's a pleasure to sit down and immerse yourself in the picture. It's an impressive TV.

If and when I upgrade my box, I'll try to update.

Cons: The thing that stuck out to me was this: the stand that comes with the TV seems awfully flimsy. It's a nice big base, but there are only four little screws designed to hold this monster on that base, and it's a darn heavy TV. (Fortunately, I mounted the TV on the wall, so the stand is not an issue.) I'm sure it's fine, but it would make me nervous to have this thing standing on the base alone. (On the plus side, Toshiba built a nice little hook into the back of the set that you can secure to the wall with a strap if you want additional support.)

Other Thoughts: Be warned: 55 inches is a BIG TV. It may not look like it in a store (if you do like I did and haunt the local electronics stores to compare pictures, you'll start thinking that 55" isn't so big. It is.) But, if you've got a big wall and a big room, you'll be happy with a 55".

It's also very heavy for a flat screen; it doesn't outweigh the old-school 32" tube TVs from 20 years ago, but it's REALLY heavy when comparing it to a 32" flat screen. On top of that, because of its size, it's awkward to lift. You will need help getting this up on the wall; wall mounting this TV is definitely a two-person job.

By the way, someone else said there are only 2 HDMI jacks; there are actually three; two on the back and one on the side. The side jack is helpful because, unless you've got a tilting bracket, once this is mounted on the wall, you're not going to be hooking anything else up to it. I actually did all my connections before mounting the TV on the wall.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Nice TV

Pros: Bought this TV at your local Blue electronics store for $999 plus tax. I've been really happy with it. I do miss PIP but for this price, it'd be hard to find anything close to this TV. It is a huge TV, might be too big for some living rooms. You'll find yourself having to actually move your head to watch football. Still better than spending $200 less and getting a much smaller TV.

Cons: No PIP, Speakers are terrible but they usually are. I have mine connected to a fairly high end Yamaha surround system so that's not an issue for me. There also does seem to be a slight audio lag between the TV and the surround but you can usually adjust the delay there and this is a problem with most LCD's not just this one.

Other Thoughts: Buy it.. you'll love it. Just make sure it won't be too big if you have a smaller room. Definitely connect it to a home theater system.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Big Screen
Good Picture
Consistent Black levels
Inexpensive for the size

Cons: Two HDMI inputs
No special features

Other Thoughts: This is a large screen at a good price with no frills. The TV itself is reasonably attractive, and the picture quality seems good -- colors seem accurate, and blacks are consistent across the screen. Not a lot of connections (if you have an A/V receiver you only need the one HDMI), and no internet bells and whistles (available on most Bluray players or MythTV), but what it does it does well, and inexpensively.
