    We purchased this unit to replace a 40" 1080p that we have had for a couple of years. The different between the two is incredible. Blacks are great, picture clarity is phenomenal, and it does well with fast action. Games on our Nintendo switch are beautiful, with sharp graphics, deep blacks, and no artifacts. The Roku feature is convenient, but doesn't work any different than our Roku Premier. The remote is a bit odd, as it is just a Roku remote with a few extra buttons. Would like to have a number pad to direct access channels, but that's not enough for me not to like this TV. Overall very pleased with our purchase.

    I bought this TV after I returned Roku 49 inch TV. I am a sound person. Once you had great sound you can't go back to Beezy. I like all the Specs for the price 2160 4K HDR Fire inside. I decided to purchase because the sound on the Roku was terrible. My son has a 32 Roku 2015 model and I did not realize how low the Roku platform sound is. The sound on Roku TV are up and down depending on what App your looking at. Netflix may require that sound is on 20 + YouTube the same depending on production amateur or professional. Some commercials are lower or higher from commercial to commercial. I just could not tolerate the sound and did not want to have to depend on my sound bar. So back it went but. Now as for The Toshiba which I was hesitant because the last Toshiba I had kept in mint condition went out after a year and 4 months. Painful but this Toshiba has been pretty decent so far as I said the sound is what I love the most. Picture is OK . 4K quality is nice to on small amount of content. I can find. I have a Roku Ultra hooked up and it gives me some 4K content. Videos were beautiful so if and when their us 4K content on a regular basis you can judge for yourself. Bottom line is a person looking for more than fair technology for cheap this is it.

    The TV itself is fine. Good picture quality, plenty of connections for consoles, etc. But, the Fire TV OS is awful (at least after years of using a Roku), the built in Alexa is OK at best, and getting it connected to my Echo Dot proved fruitless. The OS suffers from serious slowdowns on random occasions. Nonnative YouTube app means using the web browser(there is a native app coming back to Fire at some point later this year). The Settings shortcut (longpress on the Home button on the remote while in any app) has decided it no longer works, annoying because that's a quick easy access to the Sleep Timer. Had a Toshiba LCD TV for many years that this replaced. Wish I'd gone into the store and played with this one before buying. I'd have sought another brand with a different built in OS

    For background: I've watched a 40" plasma set from 2011 for many many years now and have been plenty pleased with it. Back in the day, LCD sets were not the greatest when it came to blacks and I've just felt no need to replace the plasma set for that and other reasons. So when the opportunity to check out this Toshiba came along I figured "Why not?" Let's see what the new guys can do compared to the old boys. 1st of all, the picture...the reason we watch TV. Let there be no doubt...blacks are black.Colors are pleasing, not overly saturated or unnatural looking. Mind you, my viewing is done with all settings are at factory defaults. +1 Size, weight, ability to use my existing TV stand: Ok, somewhat subjective but this was as simple as unplugging the sound bar, electric & HDMI cables, swapping out the sets, and reconnecting. I like simple! +1 Channel assortment: I'm a long-time ROKU user so was interested in checking out Fire TV. Still early on but it's ok. Plenty of channels - I'm an Amazon Prime user and the selection of available choices is much greater than for non-members [that's the "hook"]. The usual assortment of channels is available to include Internet radio. Ease of navigation could be refined as tad, though. +1 On-air TV channels: I know, who watches OTA TV anymore? Well, having an old amplified TV antenna stashed away, I was happily surprised at the tuner in the set. Even with the antenna in a poor location and not aimed with any precision, I was blown away at the channels pulled in. Well done! +1 I tinkered with Alexa and did not find it useful. Others might find it helpful, not me, it won't be missed. And I'm sure not installing a listening device in my home. Not going to happen, Jeff! +0 Lone negative experience: for whatever reason [software update?] the set worked great with my wireless network the first day/night and has not been able to connect since. Tried changing protocols, passwords, rebooting the set to factory defaults, restarting the router [Uverse]...nada, zip, zilch...it fails to connect. Every. Time. I suspect a firmware/software update that first night/early morning of the next day as prior updates had been made with no ill effects. So yeah, have to use a cable. -1 By my completely arbitrary scoring method, the set crosses the finish line at +3. My old plasma gets donated this weekend. Job well done, Toshiba and BB!
