    Great little TV!

    I got this on sale for $99 dollars. I wanted a 32 inch TV for my bedroom. This fits the bill perfectly. For this price range this TV really has a great picture. The sound is not bad at all. I also have it attached to an Insignia soundbar when I want to crank a little more. For just nighttime watching the internal speakers are fine. I love that this TV has multiple options for audio output. It has composite outputs (input), a 3.5mm output, and has an optical output. It also has a sleep timer which is a must have for a bedroom TV. It has many picture modes which is great. But more importantly, it has an option so you can create a custom picture mode. That is also a must for me as I can really dim the brightness for bedtime watching. I've had it a month now and I'm completely satisfied up to this point. Reliability will be determined over time. I highly recommend this at this time.

    Good Basic TV

    I purchased the 32" Toshiba LED 720p HDTV for my bedroom. In addition to using it as my second Dish Network TV, I have connected a laptop computer, using an HDMI cable. I like the variety of input and output connections. The picture and sound are good for such a basic TV; however, I wish Toshiba offered a 1080p 32" TV. The picture quality is just a little less than what I would have liked. I added an LG SH3K soundbar with subwoofer. Though the sound from the TV was fine, I wanted a more robust sound with plenty of base. This set up works great. I can watch TV from Dish Network or use my laptop to listen to music or stream videos from the internet. And I like using the larger 32" screen when I work on the computer instead of using the small laptop screen. I prefer this combination over buying a smart TV.

    It's OK

    I bought this to use as a monitor for an infrared analog surveillance camera. For that purpose it works great and the prices was very reasonable. I'd give it five stars but two of the wall mount machine screw holes on the back did not have threads. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get a screw started until I looked closely with a flashlight and realized there were no threads in the hole. Unless you have a tap set handy (like I did) it would have been impossible to attached the VESA mount to the TV. If returning it would be a huge hassle as it would have been for me (distance and time), I'd check the screw holes before leaving the store with it.

    Toshiba is a good brand. I've owned many different Toshiba TVs, DVD players, etc. I've always been happy. This TV didn't disappoint either. I did find the color washed out and found the menu very difficult to make adjustments. I think I'm pretty tech savvy, but really couldn't figure out how to adjust the picture outside of choosing one of the picture modes. I was a bit frustrated with the inability to adjust the picture. I went to the store to seek guidance on the adjustment controls when I noticed a different TV brand of the same size for the same price. The other brand was a "smart" TV. Rather than deal with the menu difficulties and lack of smart capabilities, I decided to return this and go for the other. I'd still buy this TV if I could figure it out and if it were cheaper than the smart TV. Given no significant price difference, I bought the other.

    Wanted a small TV to use as a computer monitor and to watch regular programming in my home office. Tried a 720p vizio and a 1080p vizio smart tv. Kept each a couple of weeks. The 720p was just OK but poor picture quality and seemed cheap. The smart vizio was really bad. Terrible motion blur. Football games seemed like I was watching an old hand-held camera recording. Then tried samsung j4000. Very disappointing, poor color and terrible sound. Finally bought the Toshiba 720p for $129 at Best Buy. Good color and picture and the sound was much better than the other 3 I tried. Still some motion blur with live sports but ok for 60hz. Viewing angle is very narrow but since it's just for me I don't care. All in all a good buy.

    Very Good basic 720 HD T.V .

    Looking for Very Good Basic 720 HD T.V. at a bargain cost . This Toshiba's a worthy purchase . A vivid picture with a great sound quality . While the color is 1st rate I hoped for a somewhat sharper picture . The set though still offers a good clean detail . The remote is one of the best offered and very easy to use . One does desire a more obscure power display , however it's not a real problem . The Television is a top bargain for a very good picture and splendid sound . Can't go much better at the cost . Definitely worth every penny .

    I first purchased this item in May of this year and 5 months later the picture turned green. I took it back to Best Buy and they shipped it to the Service Center and it was determined that it couldn't be fixed. I purchased the same TV and I haven't had it a full month and once again it's green. I will be returning this TV and I will not purchase this TV for the third time. It's no wonder why it was so cheap! DO NOT buy this TV. Please add a few more dollars and get you something worthy!!

    I got this on a Black Friday sale and I don’t regret it a single second. The picture is very good for what it is, and the antenna reception is perfect. I’ve had no issues so far getting any local channels. It’s easy to learn where all the options and settings are, and the set up for the TV was extremely easy. This TV paired with a Roku Box is the perfect combo! Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the volume adjusts sometimes without me even touching the remote, so if I’m in another part of the house doing chores or something it’s a bit hard to hear the background noise.

    Great 32 inch Tv

    If you are looking for a 32 inch TV without a Smart TV function, this is a great choice. It has a great picture and great sound. If you are in to adjusting/tweaking the picture and/or sound, lots of settings to work with to get what you want. There are 2 HDMI ports and 1 old style composite port for hooking up an older device. Has a good sized remote which is comfortable and easy to use. Also, the TV weighs less than 10 lbs if you need to move it around from room to room.

    While nothing special, this TV is good enough for the price point and would be good for a small bedroom or someplace space is too tight for something larger. The sound quality is better than the picture quality, especially with the imitation surround sound feature. The screen brightness and color is fine, but the lighting is uneven (particularly around edges) and the contrast is not very good. It's not very noticeable with regular TV shows, but I wouldn't recommend this set for video games.

    Nice picture and sound

    I bought this TV over the Sharp that was on sale because of the Toshiba Brankd. I wasn't disappointed. The picture is great and the sound wonderfull with those dual 6 watt speakers. I'm not into smart TV's with the Rouku built in. What do you do when the technology becomes dated? I bought a seperate Roku Ultra to go with the set becasue it was on sale 50% off. But a Roku + Streaming Stick would have worked nicely. Especially if oyu want to wall mount the set. Very satisfied. This set is very versatile.

    I bought this TV for my grandma because she just really wanted something to watch the news on. Works great out of the box and it isn’t an arguably complicated user interface like the other models on the market. It is a breeze for my grandma to use. The price was also good, so I did not have to think it over too much before heading into the store to pick it up.

    Typical TV from Toshiba

    For the size and price I don't think one can really complain. No, not the quality screen image of the higher end and priced TVs, but it works as an additional, smaller set for back-up or casual viewing. I would not recommend it for serious movie fans or any gamers who demand a higher level of quality. Overall, all right picture and average small set audio. No issues yet, after a 2 month daily usage.

    This Toshiba Flat Screen TV is a great value for the price. Clear picture (unfortunately it is based on what quality of picture your cable/dish provider gives, which in the case of my cable provider is not so good) and great sound. I don't even need a sound bar. I would give it 5 stars except for one annoying feature. When you plug the channel number into the remote it doesn't bring up the actual channel. You then have to press the up button to get the channel you want.

    No time display or closed captions on mute feature

    Believe it or not, this TV does not have the time as a feature. I don't think I've ever owned a TV that didn't have a way to see what time it was. I even called Toshiba customer service and they confirmed that this model does not have the time on it. Also, my previous two LED TVs would have closed captions on when you mute the TV, which is a nice feature. This TV does not have that feature either.

    Exactly What I Wanted

    This TV is exactly what I needed. The 32" is the perfect size for my bedroom. It replaced another brand that was fried during a power outage. Set up was easy but I had a little trouble with attaching the feet to the body of the tv. But worked thru that. I have a kitten who liked to jump on top of the tv and caused the tv to fall over because it's light weight. After I duct taped the feet of the tv (no, not the cat) to the table it solved the problem.

    Purchase this tv for my sons room as an upgrade to his tiny 19" screen. We have an older 32" Element screen in another room and you can clearly see the difference in picture quality even though they have the same specs. While I wouldn't say the screen is comparable to my High-end TV in the Living Room... this is an excellent choice for a bedroom and you won't be disappointed.

    I had to purchase a replace tv for my son and honestly I was worried on how light the box was. Even though the tv is very light, the picture quality and color reproduction is very solid for a budget tv compared to other models. My only complaint is that the tv does not get anywhere as loud as my 32" Insignia model but I feel the picture quality is slightly better.

    Bought two of these on sale for $94 dollars each! What a great little TV for that price. They are for kids bedrooms so didn't need bells and whistles. Just a decent picture and good sound. Didn't need "smart" options as I utilize FireTV for all streaming! The TV's are ridiculously light. Both were out of the box and wall mounted in under an hour! Highly recommend for Kids bedrooms, guest rooms, etc!

    The assembly was straight forward, and simple. However the power button would not work on the TV nor the remote just the TV light would blink three times. After unplugging it and plugging it back in several times, the only way it would turn on is if it was flipped on its side. I gave up after searching hours for tech support forums and help. From experience I had better luck with insignia.
