  • (Electronics) Updated this review on April 18th, 2012 Look Below >>>>>>>>>>I have had this tv for a few weeks. The chcioe 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. The picture looks excellent, however, I did need to make a lot of changes to the menu settings to achieve this the picture is too dark at default settings but the two key settings to remedy this are the energy saver settings and backlight intensity.Turn off energy saving and crank up the backlight and you have a very bright picture, the remaining settings can be easily calibrated to your preference.Make no mistake, I love the picture quality and the screen itself has low reflection. The picture was always nice, but the first thing I noticed was that it was a little dark. I didn’t like it, but could tolerate it. Turning that energy saving mode off, made a HUGE difference! Now I have a nice bright picture, which looks much better.I am really glad I found that tip by chance, and I hope you find the tip either on Best Buy, or here on Amazon.That one little tip made me give it another star. Now I am completely satisfied James Ruffin Says: 1. Hit the menu button,2.go to preferences in the menu3. press the down arrow key to scroll down (the energy settings are sort of hidden at the bottom),3. hit the enter button to select energy savings4. Set auto brightness sensor to off Picture should be much brighter.
