It's A Keeper
on December 27, 2007
Pros: Built in QAM HD receiver works great with COMCAST. Good control of picture and sound preferences. Excellent sharpness and color. Good sound without use of external speakers. Great value.
Con#1: Less than stellar fast motion and camera pan viewing for sports. This is a common LCD complaint but Toshiba does advertise "CineSpeed" which is supposed to address this. With a 8ms response time, I expected some motion blur. For me it's acceptable but you might want to check one out in a store first.
Con#2: Doesn't render analog, over the air channels well but not many of these digital sets do. This will be a moot point in 2009 as analog goes away.
Summary: For the money you can't go wrong if you're in the market for a smaller LCD set. We find the built in DVD player handy and it reads scratched rental disks very well. You can get the same set without the player for about $60 less.
One Last Thing: On Amazon shipping - make sure you give the carrier your cell phone number, or a number you are always at, as the primary contact number. They must make contact with you by phone before they will deliver. If they can't reach you, they don't deliver.
Update: I just want to say this set is still going strong as of today 9/28/12 and we're still happy with everything about it. For the price it certainly was a "best buy".
