This review is from: Toshiba REGZA 46" 1080p Full HD LCDTV w/ CineSpeed - 46RV530U
Pros: Average performance.
Cons: We purchased this model’s relative, a Regza 42HL196, in September of 2006. In June of 2008, 20 months after purchase, the set failed totally, with a diagnosis of a bad lcd controller board. Toshiba does not sell this part separately (estimate cost $200-$400), but requires a full replacement of the panel which was quoted at $2789.70. This is $600 more than the price of the television. After waiting for customer service and a supervisor for 30 minutes, I was told that due to the age of the set, nothing could be done. Diagnosis cost $160 dollars as well.
Given Toshiba’s unreliability, and exorbitant part replacement strategies, I would run, not walk, to their competitors.
