For the first year, Toshiba has badged all of its LCD HDTV models as "Regza" which stands for Real Expression Guaranteed by amaZing Architecture. And amazing architecture is what you first notice when you get this 42" 1080p LCD HDTV home. The piano black finish is currently in vogue with high end electronics manufacturers, but upon close inspection the black is actually covered with metallic flakes that give it a deep luster and shine. The soundstrip speaker with SRS Wow technology and formidable bass reproduction is recessed neatly along with an accompanying brushed stainless steel strip along the bottom. The TV is solidly connected to a swiveling base which extends several inches in front of the stand in a large crescent shape to lend stability to the set when it is placed on a tabletop or shelf. The inputs are neatly recessed in the back facing downward for ease of access if and when the set is mounted on the wall. All in all, when turned off, this TV serves as a cosmetically appealing centerpiece to a living room or den.

Be prepared: when connected to SDTV (or basic terrestrial cable), the channels appear grainy and washed out. This is because HDTV's all display SDTV fairly poorly; they are equipped to handle much higher resolution sources. So, when connected to a 480i source such as SDTV cable, the picture is poor compared to a CRT TV, whose native resolution is 480 lines of resolution. Prepare, when upgrading to any 1080p set, to purchase a cable or DrectTV package with HD channel programming. If you're hesitant to upgrade to HD broadcasting, probably put off the purchase of any HDTV capable of displaying 1080p, and either buy a larger CRT TV or an HDTV only capable of handling 720p.

Toshiba REGZA LCD TV's incorporate what is called CineSpeed into their panels.

I was finally ready to purchase a HDTV and went down to the local Best Buy because the the great financing of 2 yrs same as cash and sales they had this Memorial Day. I was interested in the 42" Sharp Aquios LCD 1080p before I was on my way down to the store to view all TVs in person. When I got there I saw the other tv I i was slightly interested in to compare it to the Aquios was the Toshiba REGZA 1080p and was blown away by the resolution of the promo they were playing on HD DVD, the price and of course 3 yrs same as cash pan they had on Toshiba tvs. Needless to say I was sold! I got the TV for $1519(minus tax) score. I am a big fan of Toshiba from the TV I replaced which I bought in winter of 2000 which has never given me problems. While I was there I picked my Toshiba HD-A20 1080p HD DVD palyer to replace my original DVD player that I had purchased back in 1999 and paid $400 for, and agian never gave me any problems. Viewing both "Phantom of the Opera" and "Corpse Bride" were amazing at 1080p and I'm a stickler on resolution. Needless to say I side with Toshiba there products and HD DVD. I am at this moment extremely happy with my purchase.

I bought my Tv 2 weeks ago after much research...

It totally exceeds expectations when viewing TRUE HiDef 1080I
(1920 X 1080 pixel channels)
It has SIX viewing modes so you can always get full screen projection
whether 480I or 1080I

Though it is "cable ready", in order to utilize it's 1080I capabilities,
I had to upgrade to a HD cable box (includes TIVO and 2 tuner recording which is great) $75.00 mo FULL SERVICE
The 480I digital channels vary widely in picture quality from POOR to VG**
The 1080I HiDEF channels are truly STUNNING

*note: the cable guy used a coaxial cable from the new box to the TV
I suggested he use a HDMI cable and the difference was noticable
** I have UPGRADED my HDMI to HDMI cable @eforcity
*AMAZON (6ft $3.12) EXCELLENT for all needs
It has significantly reduced the cable noise and improved
480I reception

This is a TV built for the future with FULL 1080P capability

The 3 HDMI ports are v1.3
*I confirmed this with tech at Toshiba
(they are listed as 1.0 on many sites)

If you combine it with a TOSHIBA A-20 upconverting 1080P HD-DVD player HDMI v1.2a($320) or
SONY Playstation 3 HDMI v1.3($500) or BETTER ...

Just purchased this TV in May '07 and am very pleased so far with the purchase. I read the previous review and I guess I can see that it's not the most premier picture in the HD universe, but it is still pretty outstanding.

The key here for 5 stars is value - for around 1600 with shipping or tax you're getting a 42" flat panel with 1080P (built for the future). It's also Toshiba's 3rd generation technology whereas many of the Bravias and Sharps are still on their 2nd generation.

So, while maybe not the top 1% of HD pictures and at times you see some pixelation (very minor, possibly due to the inferiority of the source) it costs less than half of some of those monitors. If you're looking for great value this is the TV - remember that you'll pay about $125 for nice HDMI cables to hook it up properly and you can get the whole package for a great deal.
