Product Description

Product Description

A 3-line Digital Comb Filter converts and stores 3 scanning lines, for much more accurate separation of Chrominance and Luminance, and virtual elimination of dot crawl & cross color interference Color Trilingual On-Screen Display V-Chip parental control Unit Dimensions - 23.25 (w) x 19 (d) x 17.5 (h) Unit Weight - 50.5 lbs.

The Toshiba 20AF45 20 inch FST Pure TV packs a high-end feature set into a mid-sized, not-quite-traditional flat tube unit. The 20 inch FST Pure flat tube eliminates unwanted reflections from room light compared to conventional tube designs and increases viewing angle. An Invar shadow mask enhances color reproduction thanks to its nickel-alloy construction. There's even a 16:9 mode for viewing widescreen content--a feature almost always reserved for larger units.

Toshiba didn't forget the audio either. Double baffle speakers provide improved stereo, without connecting additional speakers. And the StableSound technology maintains volume, even when commercials try to shout at you. MTS Stereo/SAP with dbx provides full broadcast stereo quality with access to bilingual or secondary audio signals.

The TV boasts a wide array of input types too. There's the user-friendly front A/V connections, as well as rear A/V inputs, as well as S-Video, ColorStream component video, and the old school RF input. All these options mean you can connect most any device to this TV quickly and easily.

The 20AF45 includes trilingual display, offering English, French and Spanish. The font A/V inputs make it easy to connect video devices or game consoles. And the headphone jack lets you watch TV without disturbing friends and family.

This TV ranks high with parents too. A GameTimer allows for parental control of playing time. The V-Chip and channel lock features let parents control what their children view.

If you're looking for a mid-sized TV that includes high-end features typically reserved for big units, the Toshiba 20AF45 is definitely worth a look. You'll be hard-pressed to find a comparable mid-sized, feature-rich TV.

After comparing the 20 inch monitor receivers visually at a local store, we purchased this model recently; working great so far. No curling here; perhaps the other reviewer placed the set near the source of a strong magnetic field, such as the power transformer of a large amplifier.

No ghosting either. We feed cable into the set via both a VCR,(RF), and a cable box output, (baseband), routed through A/V receiver. Slight amount of noise with RF loopthough; baseband cable box very clean. Could be slightly low RF amplitude of cable which the cablebox can better handle.

TV sound is adequate; you cannot expect really great audio from a TV set, which is why we use our A/V receiver when sound quality matters. Component output of DVD player routed into so-called "colorstream" input of TV with excellent results, when compared to composite output of DVD player through A/V receiver. Good VCR performance; obviously recording at 2 hr mode produces better quality video than a recording made using 6 hour mode. The sharpness of this TV reveals the quality difference between the two recording speeds.

All in all, a very good monitor/receiver, though it carried top of the line price for this class of 20 inch monitor/receivers. We had originally intended to purchase a different, less expensive model, but decided to spend $30 more for this one since its picture was decidely superior to the others on display.

I've owned this Toshiba model for about 4 years and until very recently, it has been a wonderful component. My reason for purchasing the Toshiba over Sony or similar competitors' models at the time was that the Toshiba had far superior audio for its size/screen/price class.

Toshiba's greatest flaw, however, was recently exposed when I moved to a new home. When I first set it up in my new home and turned it on, there was a "tick ... tick ... tick ..." that went on for about 20 seconds until the power indicator light came on and the screen became active.

All was fine, operations were normal for a week, until the TV was again unplugged and moved to a different location in the room it was in. This time, the ticking lasted for over 10 minutes. While that was going on, I did a web search on the problem and saw that it's common among Toshiba units and usually involved an expensive fix. Anyway, eventually it came on. That was yesterday.

Today, even though the unit was not unplugged - simply turned off last night - the tick came back, and this time, it took well over 25 minutes to get full power and picture.

Until I find room in my budget for a new tv, I won't dare shut this Toshiba all the way off, rather leave it on a blank channel.

'Got this little beauty to replace a larger, old

tv that finally died. What a joy this one is!

It's beautiful, and, better yet, the picture

is well above good, even with old VHS

tapes. Extra settings for color/black

options really bring out the beautiful

myriad tones of the old black and white

classics. DVDs are so crisp I think this is

about as good a picture as you can get for

a tv that's about 1/10th of what you'd pay

for a superfine HD set. I'm beyond pleased

with this gorgeous little tv.
