Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by D2Z It's NOT too dark II !!!!
For you folks trying to get a brighter picture, here's the instructions:
1) Put the INCLUDED BATTERIES in the remote.
2) Plug in the TV.
3) Turn on the TV.
4) Press the 'MENU' button.
5) Use the right arrow button to scroll over to the 'Preferences' menu.
6) Scroll down to the 'Energy Savings Settings' menu. It's the 7th selection down.
7) Press the 'ENTER' button on the remote. This will open another menu.
8) Turn the 'Auto Brightness Sensor' OFF.
You are DONE!! ...and your picture is BRIGHT!
So....I suppose Toshiba could have done a better job with the instruction manual, but that is the ONLY flaw!!
My TV is great!

I just found the Auto Brightness Sensor Setting and it solved the "dark" problem. It's VERY bright now. There are lots of features and settings. You just have to learn how to use them. My TV didn't come with a comprehensive owner's manual, but I searched online and found a .pdf. It explains all of the features very well. I especially like the Channel Browser.
If your picture is too dark try going to the Preferences Menu and SCROLL DOWN down until you see Energy Saving Settings (its not readily visible). Choose Auto Brightness Sensor and turn it off. It makes a HUGE difference.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Naej Review and question
I bought this tv 2 days ago but I think there's a problem to it. If I sit directly in front of the tv the picture looks very dark and I can't see details on dark scenes. If I change the angle, for example if I stand up and see it maybe in a 60 degree angle the picture gets clearer and I can see more details. The same happens if I watch it from the side, it looks clearer that way but not directly in front of it. Is this normal? I think it should be the opposite, that the picture looks better if I am directly in front of the tv. I also notice that the picture is too dark overall, I know about the auto brightness sensor but why they would make the picture so dark in the first place? It is just too dark and it is not normal. If someone know about this and thinks it is a defect in my tv please let me know. Thanks.

I bought this tv brand new about a year ago and i hav to say i love it! I has average features, but i have never had a problem with it like I have had with my Samsung 32 in. I mainly use it for my Xbox 360 and the game mode and HD graphics this tv is campable of is amazing. For this price it is definately worth a looking at.

I bought this TV to replace my previous TV and I really enjoy it. It has good features like the favorite channels. I would like to have buttons that light up but that is about the only improvement I could ask for. It has a delay with the demands, but is is not important.

Yes the TV comes set up way too dark but after reading "NOT TOO DARK" review this setting fixed the too dark problem. You just need to turn off the Auto Light sensor in the Energy savings settings under Preference all the way at the bottom.
No bells and whistles like Top end TVs but nice picture at a budget price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by manny Good value
For for a second tv, this a good tv and would recommend it. It needs a little adjusting but nothing out of the ordinary. It can used with the factory setting but I like the picture a little more vivid. The speakers are excellant and the options are features you would expect from a higher price set.

I started having a problem that looked like a piece of wax paper about 5 inches across the bottom of the screen. I first reported this it took all most 6 weeks to get it repaired. This is way too long during college football season. I have several Toshiba products no problems.
