The Latest in TV Technology

DynaLight® Dynamic Backlight Control uses advanced technology to monitor the brightness of each video frame and automatically adjusts backlight intensity based on what's being shown. This creates higher dynamic contrast. The result is a powerful picture with deeper blacks and enhanced grayscale for greater image details. This TV also comes with an Auto Brightness Sensor, which adjusts the picture to the surrounding room light.

Audyssey® Audio Technology

Audyssey EQ® provides clear, accurate and natural sound right out of the box. This technology optimizes the sound quality based on the speaker enclosure and room acoustics. Audyssey EQ® technology ensures you enjoy your audio experience as much as your video. And Audyssey® ABX (Bass Extension) uses sophisticated driver analysis and low-frequency monitoring to extend the range and bass of smaller speakers. The result is balanced sound with richer lows from movies, video games and more.

Versatile Connectivity

Offering a full jack pack of connections, this TV makes it easy to plug in to other devices and broaden your entertainment options. Build out a home theater with other CEC-enabled components, and run the whole show with a single remote control. Give slideshows and enjoy your favorite tunes through a USB port. Turn your TV into a big screen monitor with an HD PC input. Or discover enhanced color purity and image detail with ColorStream® HD component video inputs.

HDMI x2 Reference Image
Two HDMI ports for easy high definition connections.

Gaming-Optimized Performance

If you're a gamer -- or a parent of one -- this comes with a Gaming Mode that reduces frame delays between the display and controller. But it also provides a timer that lets you set playing limits. When time's up (30-120 minutes), the TV locks out the input source for the video game -- a great feature to help kids balance homework and fun.

Updated this review on April 18th, 2012 Look Below >>>>>>>>>>

I have had this tv for a few weeks. The choice was between this one and a cheaper Panasonic that had lots of good reviews. When I went to the store, I expected to buy the Panasonic, but this one seemed to have a better picture. The clincher was the sound quality. This one was much better. I could actually hear this one, but the other one sounded muddled. Maybe the speakers were blown on the Panasonic, but I couldn't hear it. Since I have a wood pellet stove, there is a lot of background noise in my living room, so I needed good sound. This one has some equalizing scheme that allows it to sound better at lower volume. Perhaps Toshiba pumps up the gain on the highs which makes it easier to hear.

As for the picture, it is fine. Not near as bright as my friends TV of the same size that cost over twice as much, but okay for what I want it for, which was primarily to watch netflix at 480P.

When you first hook up the tv, it asks you if you want to take it out of "store mode" Which is why it looked so great to start with... I guess it pumps up the brightness, and contrast so it looks great in the store, and makes people want to buy it.

It isn't quite as bright as it looked in the store, but it is fine.

I don't regret my purchase, and as long as it turns out to be reliable for years to come, I will be satisfied with my purchase.

I could use some separate composite inputs.

Overall, it is fine.

I increased the rating of this TV to 4 stars after I found the following EXTREMELY HELPFUL TIP ON A BEST BUY REVIEW posted by USofANDY.

I purchased this 32" LCD TV as a "slick deal" recently, which means I found it at an uncommonly low price, and purchased it on a whim.

Out of the box, I was pleased to learn that the picture quality was going to FAR exceed my expectations. I have discerning taste, and I can say with a clear conscience that the picture quality of this set is on par with what I've seen from Sony & Samsung. The black is black, the contrast is great, and the colors really pop. It is truly a stunning picture! And completely unexpected from a set of this price range (and brand name).

I read reviews that disparaged the sound quality before I received the TV - but I was pleased to learn upon setting it up that the sound quality was fine. It's average, mind you, but not terrible. I have it currently set up in a 14 x 23' carpeted & fully furnished family room and it sounds fine. I just wish it had an "analog audio-out" port so I could hook up one of my subwoofers to it.

Besides the picture quality, the HDTV antenna reception was an unexpected surprise. It's outstanding! I don't have an antenna connected to the TV, yet it pulls in every local channel that I get on my other LCD TV (that has a highly rated Leaf antenna connected to it)! In fact, this Toshiba TV provides BETTER reception than my other TV. None of the channels "come in and out." They just work, all the time, clear as day, in high def. Pretty impressive stuff! [In the spirit of full disclosure, my other LCD TV is a few years old and might not have a great tuner. So maybe all LCD TVs have great in-the-box reception these days. Take my feedback for what it's worth.]

All in all, I'm very impressed with this set from Toshiba.

The picture is very sharp and it is much better than I expected for the price.

But I have one big complaint and one smaller one.

The small complaint is that the remote is oddly designed. Some frequently used buttons are very tiny and poorly labeled. The mute only goes to half mute when first pressed. If I wanted to turn the TV down, I'd turn it down. I expect the mute button to mute the TV.

The large complaint is that the audio is not very bright. The maximum sound level is barely enough for me to hear over my fan or when I am cooking. If you like to watch TV loud or if you are putting it in a large room with background noise, you will be disappointed. I am going to have to buy some external speakers. I am not a gamer and don't care about extra bass--I want a crisper sound in the midrange/human voice levels. I keep rewinding to hear what is said during movies and dramas when conversations are soft. News shows and game shows are OK.

That said, the picture is very sharp. It is my first HDTV so I have nothing to compare it to but the picture is very nice, and I was expecting to pay a lot more.

Verified Purchase
Got this television for my bedroom because my old television broke. I was tossed up between this television, and the Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3, and picked this. At the time there was a negligible difference in price, under five dollars difference. This was a great deal for a tv that is barely used. The main reason I picked it was the screen the panasonic had was an IPS screen, after looking online, although I had trouble understanding the specs, the info led me to believe this is brighter as it has a different style of screen.(Wikipedia IPS and CCFL) The picture is crisp and sharp and the sound is fine for a bedroom, it is currently more than loud enough On half volume at 10 feet away. The only cons I had was I had to screw the stand on to the television, and the remote feels cheap, although it works well. The USB function does not play video for me so it was essentially useless, and the screen defaulted at 4:3 and I had to set it to 16:9 so the image would fill out the screen. I know I am nitpicking because all the cons with the exception of the remote were easily solved. In the end there are televisions better than this one, but not at this price.
