    Could be a lot better

    We bought this TV to replace a 12 yr old LG 42" 720p LCD which is beginning to die. It's for the Bedroom so I didn't want to go overboard and spend too much and the sale price was enticing. Once unboxed it was simple enough to get together and get up and running but we immediately noticed a couple significant downfalls. Picture quality is really not good....for a 4k TV. Yeah it's not terrible, but don't be fooled into believing this is anywhere near the image quality of ANYTHING from LG, Sony, Samsung or even Vizio. I tried numerous times to make image adjustments but the settings are limited and do very little to improve the graininess of the images. This is an issue because most sources are still only 720 or 1080p. 4k feeds such as Netflix, Youtube etc are ok, but the image is not nearly as good as the brands mentioned above. To be clear, I also have an LG 4K smart tv which is one of the lower level LG's and the image quality is easily twice the quality of this TV. Additionally, this tv struggles with making good HDMI connections. The connectors on the back of the TV are loose which is a problem since this is the primary connection to most devices and signals today. Build quality is also a concern as I hope this thing lasts. There is a reason this TV is not on display running a 4k image at the store. Also, sound levels change on their own around and onscreen movement can get jump. Strongly consider spending $40 more for a name brand. You won't regret that decision like I do this one.

    Toshiba 43” 4K Fire Edition TV

    Well, considering I missed the deal only hours that Best Buy had with this TV at a Lower Price and with a Echo Dot I am still a little upset. But I went ahead and still purchased it because it was still on sale for $100.00 less than the Regular price. Plus I used $50.00 worth of Reward Certificates. So I think I still got a good deal in all. Personally I am using this as a Second Monitor for my PC and I am able to watch TV or movies on Netflix or Hulu or other things while I work on my PC or even play games on my PC. My main PC Monitor I use is a 65” Sony TV that is a Older Moldel that works great. So for me it seems to work good. The biggest thing to get used to is the Remote. If you’re used to RoKu TV’s then I think you will know what I am talking about. The Fie Edition TV has a remote that is Voice Activated and you Basically Need to know all the Channels and commands and what everything is connected to like if your TV is connected to the HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 and so on. Personally I am Disabled and had 4 Traumatic Brain Injuries that I survived during my Military Service so my Memory is Severly impaired. This has been extremely difficult for me and something I am having great problems trying to overcome. But I guess I like challenges and I don’t like to quit and I am very stubborn.

    Not So Good

    Toshiba - 43” Class, LED, 2160p, Smart, 4K UHD TV w/ HDR, Fire TV Edition actually turning on is about the only highlight this unit has. How this particular model, at least, has gotten to a 4.6 rating is beyond me. The colors fade and change hue constantly using cableTV or AppTV. I spent a long time trying to adjust the picture and display settings to no avail since the firmware doesn't allow an on-screen picture while attempting to make adjustments. "Picture" doesn't have any adjustment when using an App. If you don't mind terrible colors it's usable. It's definitely NOT what I expected from a "Ultra High" featured unit. FireTV and Alexa? Not really my 'cup of tea' either! FireTV's menu needs a "navigation" overhaul. The Prime App doesn't differentiate between non-prime and 'prime include' programming as it does on a smart player. Alexa helps and does make getting through the menu easier but, her vocabulary could use some tweaking - i.e. "input" should at least bring up a suggestive menu without actually having to say "show me 'INPUTS', "S" added. I think the unit should have more common Apps preloaded. After finally giving up on the color settings, I returned the unit. Come to find out, I wasn't the only customer to have the same complaint! My very old LG Plasma and a Samsung "smart" blu-ray player works great - easy menus and correct screen colors!

    Fire TV NOT User Friendly

    I bought this TV for my Dad -- an older "cable cord cutter" who was paying over $150/month to watch 3 local channels -- and RARELY accessing any pay-per-view.or premium subscription channels. He has great wi-fi and internet service, but is not at all technically savvy -- using his laptop only to check email and or to view deer activity recorded on his security cameras . His biggest complaint is threefold: Fire TV does not have a "traditional" on screen channel selection on the remote or the TV screen; to use the TV you must subscribe to Amazon Prime membership; and over 90% of every option on Fire TV requires an Amazon Prime account to see or view. After two weeks of complaining about not being able to wake up and look at tv from his bed, we moved a 3 year old 50" Toshiba TV with numbers on the remote to select the channel of his choice, no requirements for Prime membership; no Amazon advertising. He can now viiew local channels, and it works extremely well with rabbit ears [antenna], This Fire TV is for someone who subscrubes to Amazon Prime membership and is Fire TV Stick savvy....

    An Excellent Piece of Technology!

    The Toshiba - 43” Class – LED - 2160p – Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR – Fire TV Edition is a true hybrid piece of technology. It performs like a television combined with a huge android tablet. It scans for digital television channels over the air and can install android apps from Amazon. I had to sign in to Amazon to initiate the registration and setup process. After finalizing those processes, I then scanned for OTA DTV channels and loaded 59 channels to the Toshiba - 43” Class – LED - 2160p – Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR – Fire TV Edition. The picture is amazingly clear, sharp and displays color in rich detail. This television also performs similar to the Amazon Fire stick, with respect to “jail breaking” it, in order to allow installation from third party sources not available inside the Amazon App store. The volume is much too loud to go past 35 -40. The sound quality is great with just a small increase of volume. Amazon Alexa is also included to provide voice command, instead of manually inputting commands. There is nothing negative that I can find to critique this excellent piece of technology. I am truly satisfied with the Toshiba - 43” Class – LED - 2160p – Smart - 4K UHD TV with HDR – Fire TV Edition.

    I bought this TV to replace a 32” 1080p in my bedroom. I wanted something just a little larger that would not overwhelm my bedroom but that had some updated technology and was easy to use. I found this TV on sale for an excellent price and it has everything I wanted in a TV. The picture is great. It has good sound. It has a very simple, yet voice capable remote. It is a smart TV so I no longer need my Roku One less remote was definitely a plus for me. The FireTV is great and very easy to set up. The initial set up of the TV was easy, although initially my remote would not pair with the TV. I had attached my DVD player before setting up the TV so after unplugging everything, including the TV then plugging in ONLY the TV it finally worked. The remote interrupted me a few times for updates initially but it has worked perfectly since. One of my concerns before purchasing this TV was the width of the legs. I needed it to fit on a 30” table. Most TV legs are at the edge of the TV, making the legs too wide to fit my table. This one was the only TV that actually fits on my table with a few inches to spare. It is also lightweight and easy to move when needed. Needless to say I am very pleased with this TV. My father and my daughter saw it and liked it so much that they each purchased one the following day. If you want a smart TV with a small footprint that is easy to use and is reasonably priced, this is a great choice.

    Extremely good tv especially for the price

    This is a very reasonably priced 4K Smart TV. We looked around a lot for just any 4K TV, and this was a better price than a lot of the non-Smart TVs. We never cared about having a Smart TV before, but now that we got this one, we love it. The quality of the picture is very good. The Smart controls are a little weird to get used to at first for a newbie, but once you do, it is great. A huge plus is that this TV must have a great tuner built into it because, even though we have a good antenna hooked up in our house for local stations, none of the TVs got very many channels including never getting ABC. This TV not only gets all three major networks, but also a ton of other channels. I think it picked up a good 30 to 40 channels, and we did not change our antenna. The one drawback is that the Alexa talking to the remote doesn't seem to work very often. When you tell it to play a movie from Netflix or Sling, it always defaults back to looking for it on Amazon, which is the only real negative I have noticed (otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars, but it is really close to 5 stars even with that hiccup). Overall, a great deal, and we are so happy we got it.

    Good Picture, Horrible Apps

    Bought this 43" for less than 200, Toshiba is a pretty reliable brand so I felt safe doing so. I like the roku tv's but most of them are cheap brands and I've had trouble with TCL so I thought I'd give this Amazon TV a try since they teamed up with Toshiba. Great price, noticed it was slow initially but then sped up on start up so I went ahead and mounted it. I regret it now. This tv is horrible with Netflix. I have had to uninstall and reinstall it multiple times. Also, it is always slow in starting Netflix so you never know if it is going to work this time or will you have to reboot or uninstall it all together. Additionally, the volume has been so out of synch that I've had to restart and uninstall Netflix for that. Very annoying. On the plus, the picture is good and the speakers suffice. Also, has output for headphones if you need that and also has Bluetooth output. Note, this tv's app store does not have youtube tv, seriously. It does have directvnow but no youtube tv. I'd say if you get a great price, add your own roku streaming stick to it or firestick or apple tv or whatever and you will be good to go for when the app library is failing you and you don't have time to fool around with it. I am very disappointed and would return it if I didn't have to hassle with the mount and all.

    I was excited to see how the Amazon Fire with Alexa remote worked with Amazon Prime and the free month of Sling I got with the purchase of the tv. The remote sucks! It's really small, no light to show the small buttons, no number keys. Activated Sling, set up my Account. I have DVR set it up to record. I liked all I got with Sling and the money I am saving. The first recording and the first time really having to use the remote. I fast forward commercials. I push the forward button, it rewinds. I push the forward button thinking it must be opposite. Not! It would not fast forward! I tried so many times, I memorized what they were saying in the show I recordrd! The picture and sound are great. My previous tv was a Samsung, I customized the picture setting and the sound, colors and font for the menu, there was way more choices than this tv and the menu on the screen was large, this one is small, comes up on the right side of the screen not the entire screen. I'll see if I can get a different remote that's actually like what a remote control should be. I'm giving a score of 3 because the picture clarity is pretty good, sound not bad. If you don't mind a remote control that's almost useless but, want great clarity in a tv at a pretty low price then go for it!

    This TV hits the mark for around $300 with high quality picture (4K or HDR) while including FireTV for the Smart elements. That allows you to use Alexa to change channels, find content, etc. Very cool feature; although you have to use the remote and hold the microphone button to activate. The Live TV support looks like it would work very well assuming it's connected to an antenna source, so this could work out for a cord cutter - it pulls down the guide information based on your zip code. This is my first 4k TV, and for most content, I can't see a difference. However, for the Prime originals shot in 4K, you can definitely see it. Three caveats to this otherwise great TV: 1. 5GHz Wireless connectivity seems to disconnect after power off and power on. I'm guessing this will eventually be fixed with a FireTV update. 2. No sleep timer - this caught me off guard as I intended to put it into a bedroom where we use this feature a lot. This too might come with a system update, as I know with our Amazon Echo Dot, I can say "Alexa, set a sleep timer for 20 minutes" and she does what we expect. 3. No component inputs. This is pretty clear from the product description, but it also caught me off guard when trying to connect an old video game system to the TV (Nintendo Wii).

    Such a good deal! Was going to buy another Fire TV stick for my downstairs TV - regular 42 inch 720 resolution. For the extra hundred or so dollars, I have Fire TV, with quick access to Netflix, along with a quick search menu for live TV that looks like the type you get with cable TV service. This was a bonus feature that I wasn't expecting. The TV is lightweight and easy for one person to maneuver and it has a clean modern look. The screen goes almost to the edges of the box so no ugly extraneous plastic! The 4K screen is great. I notice details in the background now... things that were always there, just never noticed before due to the lower resolution screen we just replaced. It is a SmartHome device and can be controlled by other Alexa hub controllers like the Echo Show, but it was a bit of a challenge to pair these devices and when we finally managed it, we found that the only sound we could hear came from the Echo speaker and not the TV while we 'controlled' the TV through the Echo. All in all, this was a bargain for the price (and even nicer that we got a free Dot with purchase). Definitely a step up from TVs without the smart capability and if you're just using antenna instead of cable for local TV service, the functionality of this TV really enhances your viewing experience.

    Excellent 4k Smart TV

    This is by far one of the best smart TV experiences I have ever had on a TV. The processor on this TV is amazing and is by far the snappiest, fastest processor that I have ever seen built into a TV. Typically smart TV's are very sluggish and have next to no useful applications installed or available. Since this TV features the same interface and apps as any other Fire TV device you have a multitude of options ranging from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and many more apps. Picture quality is amazing and surprisingly the sound is quite good for a TV. I would still use a sound bar but that is just my preference. My only complaint with this TV is the remote is too simplistic and can not be programmed for any additional devices such as a cable box or DVD player which ends up with needing several remotes just to watch anything. It is easily solved by getting a good smart remote but it is very frustrating that manufacturers are starting to go to this model of very limited bare bones remotes (or in some cases no remote at all). Overall this is an amazing TV and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    I got this TV on sale to replace a 40" Toshiba HD TV in the bedroom. The features were nice and I liked the voice activated remote, but ultimately it is a TV and the picture has to be good. The picture quality on this TV was FAR inferior to my 10-year old standard 1080 HD set. Toshiba is no longer Toshiba - literally. It is now made by Chinese TV manufacturer Hisense and the picture quality is sub-par in several ways. Most notably, the off-angle viewing suffers terribly. Once you move as little as 30 degrees off direct center viewing (either horizontally or vertically) the picture dims noticeably. Brightness and clarity seem to diminish as much as 50% at angles greater than 60 degrees! This is not the case in reputable brand TV's. I guess you do "get what you pay for". It's too bad Fire TV has not yet partnered with a high-quality TV manufacturer like Sony, LG or Samsung. Until then I'd recommend staying away from Toshiba or Insignia, and instead buy a good TV and a separate Fire TV Stick.

    Bought this TV for my girlfriend since she found my 32" TV too small for her liking. Happened to see that it was on sale the same day she complained and since we already have and use Fire TV, decided to take a chance, purchasing on the Best Buy website. Easy to assemble and setup, I had her watching 4K videos within 20 minutes of bringing the TV home. Just logged in to my Amazon account and boom, there were all our apps and favorites. Attached a small flat antenna, hanging at the top of a window and was blown away by the depth and richness of the OTA picture. Excellent tuner picks up weaker stations that my Tablo can't. The sound quality of the speakers is as good or better than the soundbar we were using with my 32". The built in guide is easy to navigate and includes channels from our Philo subscription. In my opinion the included Remote is actually easier to use than my other Fire TV remote due to better placement of the buttons. This Toshiba 4K UHD TV is an excellent way to enter the UHD world and I would recommend this to everyone in search of a 4K TV.

    Wonderful Picture & Ease of Use

    Picture is great! It's our first 4k TV. I thought I might never get one, but I simply could not pass up this price (it was $100 of the retail price). I love the antenna hookup on this TV as well. The FireTV has a built in live DVR of up to 30 minutes of pause time while you watch live TV through the antenna. Another great feature is the integrated TV guide which incorporates every OTA channel and our PlayStation Vue's channels into one guide. Select the channel you want to watch and the FireTV takes you there. It reduces the need for the TiVo in some circumstances (unless we want to watch a show recorded on TiVo). I do have to say I really like the ease of use and integration. I haven't even used all the features because we don't use a sound bar on this TV (this and our previous TV, which is 14 years old, so it has good speakers) because the speakers are quite adequate. If you want higher quality sound, then by all means use the ARC for a sound bar or 5.1 or 7.1 sound system. It is simply hard to go wrong. I wish I had known that the 49" 4k model of this TV was going to be sold for $200 just a week later, I would have bought it instead.

    The instructions could be clearer and LARGER for us older folks. There is a video tutorial but you don't see it until you have basically setup the tv...still there is some good information available in them for using the set. One person can do setup since the tv is light but two are better because of screen size...once legs are attached there was no problem moving or lifting set with one person. I like the stand better than those sets that have the legs extend almost to the edge of screen. One feature I like is how easy it is to browse the internet (unlike the ROKU tv I also have). Some apps seem to require a fairly strong wifi signal to work well. Overall the picture is good (unless you let direct sunlight hit the screen which WILL cause a lot of reflection) even with lights on around it. The sound is fair to good (but even better if you attach external speakers). Don' know how it will work over time but this is not my first Toshiba and I have hopes of getting several years of service from it.

    this tv has a very nice picture, really nice louder speakers (even though I choose to use optic output instead), a manual power button to go along with the remote, and plenty of inputs for me (accepts hardwire from modem along with wifi). I have had it for about a month and the only complaints so far is that the option for screen mirroring is not offered, it boots up on fire tv dashboard as opposed to last input used(so you have to choose hdmi for cable if you want to watch tv), and compared to my old Samsung tv which would automatically switch to the hdmi port my chromecast was plugged into when I chose to cast from my phone, this tv has to be switched manually(kind of a bummer). The remote is a nice shape, and has enough features. This tv is not loaded with features and settings like my old smart Samsung but it hasn't been an issue excluding the aforementioned negatives. Overall I like this tv so far, it works excellent with prime video membership. Some people have said things like it has no manual and you cant access settings while watching something; not true, the manual is online and settings can be accessed by long pressing the home button.

    The picture on this set is outstanding, crystal clear and rich, vibrant colors. The connections provided are generous with three HDMI inputs and composite video. However, there is a USB input included but no explanation what it is for. It has voice input but I don't use it; It seems an unnecessary gimmick. My biggest complaint is the lack of a printed manual which makes learning the many features a time consuming and frustrating experience. For such complex features the remote has very few buttons resulting in a lot of clicking to get anywhere. The remote has four buttons dedicated to selecting HBO, Prime Video, Netflix, and Vue. It would have been a better use of remote real estate to provide buttons for more frequently used functions. For example, it takes five clicks to get from the home screen to the settings screen, then two more clicks to get to the inputs screen and another five clicks to select composite video, a total of twelve clicks. There are many other operations which require a lot of clicking through a maze of screens. This is the result of inferior software. Great picture though!

    Two weeks in, sand I am very happy with this purchase. For a 43" tv, the picture is good, the inclusion of Fire TV features is a great bonus, and this tv, on sale, was only $10 more than the 1080p version of the same brand and size, which made it a complete "no-brainer" decision. I was also surprised to find that the Fire TV includes a Channel Guide interface, and a short Live Rewind feature so you can go back a few minutes while watching live tv over the antenna (not included). The only things to watch out for are that this tv is best in a dark room, as the screen has a shiny glare. Also, the blacks don't get as dark as more expensive tv's, but if this is not your primary tv that is being used for family movie nights, it is more than fine. The picture is sharp and clear, and 4K quality is deep, bright and crisp, and if you consume a lot of content from Amazon, this is an easy choice. Oh, and the built-in speakers aren't great, so I would invest in a soundbar or an external audio source. But it was a great purchase!

    Not good for satellite tv

    I bought this as Best Buy’s deal of the day. Easy to set up. Great picture. I wasn’t aware of all the Fire TV features, but was excited to learn about them and see them in action. I easily connected it to my wifi, selected and set up the apps I wanted, and everything worked great. However, the problems started when I connected my satellite box via HDMI cable. When I changed channels on the satellite box, the screen would go snow white for a few seconds before the sound and picture kicked in. Sometimes there would be popping sounds and the screen would go completely black. When that happened, the audio would eventually come on, but the picture would not. I had to turn the tv off and on again to get a picture. I tried different HDMI cables and used different HDMI inputs on the tv, but had the same results. I returned the tv to Best Buy and they exchanged it without a problem. (Kudos to them!). Unfortunately, I’ve had the exact same problems with the replacement. It’s going back today. Very disappointing!
