    TV is great. I gave it 4 stars due to the annoyance of having to use the remote to select which HDMI port to use once turned on instead of going straight to my directv. TV is more internet friendly than most others with easy access to Netflix, hbo and Hulu.

    Got this as a second TV and it's great. The Fire TV built in is very handy, what I really like is it's loud. I got this on sale for $200 and would not hesitate.3 hdmi ports for your other gadgets.

    Was unable to get past the startup sequence. Customer support would never answer the phone. Tried for 2 hours to get just basic HDMI input - wouldn't let me do it. Piece of junk!

    I don't really care for smart tvs as I don't use any of the apps or anything. I just needed a 4k tv for gaming. So I dislike having to manually change the tv input to the hdmi every time I turn it on instead of just staying on that input. When you turn it on it goes straight to the home page with all the apps and advertising shows to watch which makes it slower having to load it all. But thats just me.

    Great for regular tv watching, not for gaming

    Got this tv a few weeks back because my old one went belly up, was going to use this one for gaming as well as watching tv, but occasionally when I try to play a PC game, the screen will start to flicker black, when I switch to a different input, such as from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2 and back, it stops briefly, then starts in again. Tried every possible setting on the tv and on my computer, plus, I can't really adjust much for settings with my graphics card as it will automatically reset when I click the apply button. I tried a different cable rather than an HDMI, and that didn't work, tried different refresh rates, but then it lags like no other. So if anyone is looking for a 4k TV purely for gaming, especially on the computer, I would not get this one. Otherwise, if you just want to watch a little tv, maybe movie night with the family, then this tv will do just fine for that.

    Purchased for mother-in-law. Good picture and apps she'll never use, but good to know they are there for when company comes over. Only con is I cannot figure out how to have the TV default to the proper HDMI input when it's turned on. She has directv and can use the DTV remote to turn the TV on, but it always asks to select the HMDI input rather detecting the an input signal from DTV and automatically starting the service. She ends up having to use the Toshiba remote to select HDMI 1 input then DTV launches...kind of a pain, but not a deal breaker. My Samsung auto-detects a new incoming HDMI signal and automagically changes to that input. Cant figure out how to make this TV do that.

    This was a waste of $200. The TV disconnects from the WiFi every time it goes to sleep, which would malfunction the remote. The remote would turn the tv on and off but wouldn't do anything else. So I had to hold the home button for a long time to get it to repair, reconnect to my WiFi and then I was able to watch tv. Then it got to the point where holding the home button no longer worked, so I had to hold 3 different buttons to get it to cut back on... EVERYTIME I turned my tv on. Now it won't even discover any WiFi net works unless I factory reset it. The apps force close for no reason. The picture from HDMI input randomly blanks out for up to 4 seconds. And I've only had this tv for 2 days. Worst experience ever.

    4k is great, but Fire OS has issues

    Starting off with the good: The audio on this TV is impressive. I considered buying a soundbar with this TV as I had with every prior flatscreen, but when I started using it I was baffled by how good the audio quality was! This TV was my first venture into 4k. That being the case the only device I had that supported 4k was my Xbox One S which can upscale game content and play 4k video. It is just plain gorgeous! Even older games like Red Dead Redemption upscaled to 4k look just plain stunning. We did buy Fantastic Beasts in 4k through the Microsoft Store and it showed up instantly on our Fire TV thanks to both being linked to Movies Anywhere, also very gorgeous. Now on to the unfortunate flaw, the OS. We chose this TV because we have had a Gen 1 Fire TV box for several years now and have quite enjoyed it. Sadly this TV does the Fire OS a disservice. Apps constantly freeze, stutter and buffer. System Updates are hit and miss, one update everything is fine, the next and current update we are rebooting our TV every time we need to change an app because nothing loads and the whole TV just freezes up and slows down. We also have run into an issue where the audio level goes insanely loud, a 1 or 2 on the volume level is equal to a 20 or 25. Ultimately we are back to using a Gen 1 Fire TV plugged into an HDMI port because the built in Fire TV software just does not work as it is currently. I keep hoping an update will fix these issues, but since the last update broke more than it fixed I don't have high hopes. I can only recommend this TV if you are in need of a 4k TV and have your own Smart Device to use as a substitute for the FireOS

    Focuses too Hard on Being an Internet TV

    From the start it's clear that this device is not the traditional TV with Apps to expand the experience. Instead Toshiba and Amazon have partnered to create this device that focuses almost exclusively on the internet TV experience, and Amazon in Particular in such a way that it makes it a burden to do simple tasks. Yes it has a voice remote but if you are like me I have a Tivo (or other set top box from the cable company) Without the ability to program in your DVR, or other component to the remote it makes the remote a paperweight. Even very inexpensive TV's from Viz have a remote that can be programmed with some basic functionality, not so with Toshiba. They are of the mindset that you will do everything with apps so those HDMI ports if you choose to use them will need to be controlled by the devices own remote cause we aren't gonna work with it. The TV is also supposed to CEC enabled which in other devices meant if you switch to an input the TV would send a signal to the accessory device attached to that HDMI port and power it on. This Toshiba doesn't do that. But if I turn on the Blueray disk player it sends the signal to the tv and it switches to the correct input. It's these navigation and core functionality issues that have made this a meh device. Trying to force the web apps on everything is fine but now with most internet services going to data caps sort of makes the whole 4k think a moot point unless you want to pay the absorbent prices for additional GB over the cap. That said the TV does have a good picture and sound. Watching HD off the air is very nice and blu ray disks are smooth playing. I was concerned because of the size of the picture and that it not look shuttery. Thankfully Toshiba put some $$ into the software development to smooth the video and make things a clean experience. Sound is also very good with virtual surround giving you some surprises when you least expect them. The Amazon being front and center is a let down along with the failure to control any other devices but the TV and not support any HDMI device is where the rating has taken it's hit. If you are going to spend the coins making a device voice activated you need to be able to control devices are attached to the TV, otherwise you are putting $$ into a paperweight that is going on a shelf are rarely used.
