Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paulie Boy I have one word.....AMAZING!!!
This TV is truely amazing! I have owned many LCD's and even an LED but none compare to this. I was shocked at the clarity. The picture is so real and lifelike. The first movie I watched was Avatar and it looked as if I coud reach out and touch the characters. Sure my friends have 3D but I would rather have the clear picture over 3D any day. When I say it's clear and crisp....its an understatement. Even old movies (in HD) look as if they were made in the last few years.
The only thing I dislike is that in fast motions on the screen, it can get a little pixelated but very small gripe. Also, it doesnt have internet support.
Sound is great and self adjusting light....you never get gleamed by the inner light on the wall. Great job Toshiba. I want another for the bedroom

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Calvin Infinitely worse than predecessors
I had a Toshiba 52HL167. Because it was such a great TV, I recently purchased what the salesman told me was the newer comparable model: 55G310U. And they really bragged about the 120hz. Well, the 55G310U's contrast is so horrible. The blacks are green/light grey. The edges of objects now are pixelated instead of the previously sharp lines. The motion is now choppy (which was supposed to be the one feature that should have been better). The remote is no longer multibrand. ColorMaster controls are gone. The audio sounds tinny and faux mono. SD channels that seemed to still come in good with the 52HL167 now look like a 1999 Quicktime video. I went from Toshiba's biggest TV fan to won't touch Toshiba with a 10' pole. Obviously the quality control department are on vacation for the newer models. A real shame.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by coliey Greatest Purchase Ever!
We bought this after doing A LOT of research on tvs. It has an AMAZING TV if you are watching the correct things, we stream Netflx and Hulu which their supplied pic quality is not that great, but when we watch a DVD it is amazing and when we watch a bluray it is UNBELIEVABLE!!! seriously best TV I have seen out there for the price. It is funny because our friend just purchased a comparable TV and ours is better...feels good!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karl Great TV for the price
Love this set! For the price, you can't beat it. Very good sound and I love the features. No S video, but no big deal there. Excellent color and depth. You will not regret your purchase here. This is my 3rd Toshiba product and so far so good. This replaced my old 36" tube and it is such a huge difference. Kicker is that the price I paid is less than I my tube I purchased 10 years ago!

At 55", it lights up my living room..and it's not even turned on. This TV is amazing. It is also a beautiful work of art. The first Blue-Ray disc I got to watch on it was an amazing experience. To this point I have only had one issue. For some strange reason, the set will turn on automaticly. I have tried a couple things but, still looking for an answer.

Could not wait to set it up now I cannot wait to take it down.Picture is fuzzy and blurry.No manual in box. Cannot figure out volume on tv. Have it hooked up to HDMI, not much different. I'm a Nascar fan and very disapointed with picture. I cannot believe I saved and then spent my money on this. First and last Toshiba.

Just purchased this TV last week. I've read all the negative reviews on this TV and I don't agree with all the complaining. Picture and sound is great. Only concern I have is I have'nt figured out how to hook up my surround sound and WII and DVD together. I would recommend this TV.
