Good ValuePosted .
I've only had the TV for 3 weeks. Irony is that I was seriously looking at Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, et. al. , but I was looking at price point and trying to compare sound and display in electronics stores - a challenge, at best. Anyway, this ended up being an out-of-box special, though it appeared it hadn't been unpacked at all. I have a 4-year-old 40 in. Sony HD DLP set, so I have something I can compare this to and this definitely measures up. It is a bedroom TV so I was leaning toward TVs that weren't super-bright. It turns out that I lucked out and got the perfect one in that category. The picture is clean, colors tend to be warmer but more muted than what you see on some other brands - like the very bright Samsung and LG. HDMI cable brings in a very clean sound with the picture. The one thing I can't measure here is that I got this with the arrival of Verizon's FiOS TV in the house which improved the picture on my 40 in. TV considerably. But for anyone serious about HDTV, this is an excellent buy! Spent $100 on 4-year Geek Squad repair - replacement guarantee.I would recommend this to a friend

Before you buy please reviewPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
This model I bought today. I took a very long time learning about LCD. t.v.'s and this was not my first pick. Like others, I was brainwashed into thinking that a Samsung would be top of the line for my price range. I was wrong. The Toshiba model is exsquisite. Contrast ratio 8000:1 and you can tell. The menu options and the look thereof, were something I didn't check in the store, but once home, I was pleased. Plenty of options and clean un-cluttered look. The model blends in great with my home atmosphere and adds a classy, modern look. There was no power indicator light on the model so when it's turned off it kinda look completely unplugged. The a/v and hdmi inputs are inverted on the back of the unit but that's not too much of a problem considering you keep your wires organized like me. The Toshiba model is one that I am pleased with. I've had the Sharp Aquos( I broke that one) and my laptop resolution on the Toshiba is quite superior to that of the Sharp. So, I know that name brand and reputation mean alot, and that Toshibas presence has been somewhat missing when watching commercials but, this model is undervalued and too often overlooked, to my benefit. I got my T.V. for 535.99 total during christmas season. I hope I helped stimulate the economy because Toshiba is definitely stimulating my retna's. LOL, considering the Best Buy staff. I was standing around just looking and a sales assoc. walked up and asked if I needed help. I hesitated and he said: "I be right back to help you." So he leave and I make mental notes on the T.V.'s. Before 1 full minute passed I was approached a second time by an associate. She asked the same question. I replied," Do you know the contrast ratio for this set?" which also didn't have a price listed. She checked it out, in 30 seconds and looked me in the eyes and asked, "So are you ready?" "What's the price?" I ask. "499.00" she replies. To make a long story short, she broke the indecisiveness I had with a great price on a great product. Before I knew it, she had gotten a cart and I was being checked out. Second thought's on the way home about, was this the right model? Sure. But once connected, I was pleased and the Toshiba looks moderately bigger in the house than in the store. Could've gotten a 37' but am very pleased with the 32'. I hope this helps some, No one can tell you what your looking for, just give advice. Happy Holidays and good luck with your search and do not forget surge protectors.

great tv for the pricePosted .I would recommend this to a friend
The wife really wanted a bedroom TV, and the biggest that we could fit into the room was a 32". I knew that a 720p LCD would fit the bill since 1080p is overkill on a screen that small. So the main factor at that point was price and reliability. Toshiba is a recognized brand of LCDs, and I was able to get the TV for a good price, even with the black friday sales looming, so this seemed like a good fit for me. In comparison to my 50" plasma in the living room, which has a properly calibrated picture, this set does a decent job as far as image quality. You get the nice bright picture typical of LCDs, but you also have to deal with the narrow viewing angles (anything beyond 3 feet of center starts to wash out the picture). There is a good amount of "red push," which isn't adjustable at the user level, but the colors do pop nicely for those that prefer that look. Sound quality is average for a set like this. The look of the unit itself is very nice -- it sports a shiny black bezeI. The included stand for tabletop mounting feels flimsy, but since the unit is light it does a decent job. If you can add weight to it, I'd recommend it for added stability. I plan to mount the TV on the wall later this week, and I'm sure it will look great and will be nice and stable. Overall, I'm pleased with this TV.

Better sound than the Samsung LN32B360Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
I read the reviews for this Toshiba 32AV502R, the Samsung LN32B360 and Sony Bravia KDL-32L5000. I went to BB, played with all of the settings and decided to buy the Samsung. It looked better in the store than the others. When I set it up at home, I was really disappointed with the sound quality! I have it sitting on a TV stand in a corner, so there is a lot of space behind it. The Samsung and Sony both have speakers that fire from the bottom of the TV. At home, the sound bounced from the bottom and then to the back into the corner. This makes the sound muddy and scrambles the balance so I couldn't tell left from right. There is also no bass to the speakers. When you turned up the volume, it would buzz and rattle the chassis. The sound quality was unacceptable for the price you pay for any Television. The Toshiba has speakers that fire from the front and in my case sound far better than the Samsung did. The bass and treble sound crisp and clear. No case rattling. I like the picture and so far I am very happy with my new choice!

Good purchase, great pricePosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I bought this TV for $449 on sale at my local Best Buy, and I'm completely satisfied with my purchase. I got same-day delivery, even though I purchased it at 6PM and the TV was easy to set up. The TV has a good number of connections available in the back, and has 2 hdmi ports. The TV displays standard-definition channels well, and high definition video looks great on it. I primarily bought this for Xbox 360 gaming, and I was blown away at the quality of the picture. I fired up Call of Duty: World at War as soon as set up the TV, and the picture is crisp with deep blacks that grant me great vision in--game. Just remember to configure your Xbox 360 to 720p, as it seems to default to 1080i. My only complaint is that the sound could be better when getting audio from my cable box. To be fair, the signal is coming through a regular coaxial cable, but it could be louder and richer. The sound coming through from the Xbox 360, however, is amazing. Also, the Best Buy employee who sold me the TV also sold me a $70 HDMI cable that I ended up not needing, but that's not a complaint against the TV. Just be sure to know what type of connection your cable box uses (component/S-Video vs. HDMI).

good tvPosted .No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This is a good TV. I had originally bought a 26" Samsung for the living room from another store but I took it back because the sound was so horrible. Then I tried a 26" Vizio, big mistake, took that one back real quick, it's not even worth going into detail. This TV actually costs less than the 26" Samsung. However, unlike the Samsung, the speakers on the Toshiba face forward instead of down. Maybe that accounts for the difference in the sound. This TV has a lot of bass; maybe too much. There is no EQ, just bass and treble controls. You can tweak the sound, but if you plan on getting surround sound or external speakers, then the sound will not be an issue for you. I don't plan on getting surround sound for my small apartment, so I want a TV that has good sound as well as a good picture. As far as the picture goes, it is not as good as the Samsung, but it's still a good picture. Definitely a big improvement over standard definition. I didn't notice any drop off in picture quality in viewing from different angles. Now as far as changing channels, when you change channels within the same picture format, say like 720p to 720p the channel changes really fast, like it should. But when you change channels between different formats, like say 720p to 1080i, or 1080i to 480i, then the TV actually shuts off and then turns back on, this takes like 5 seconds or so. I mention this because this TV accepts some HD channels in 1080i and others in 720p, so if you are going to channel surf from within HD channels and/or you are going to channel surf from HD channels to non HD channels, it's going to take awhile and it may get on your nerves. I know it did for me. I ended up taking this one back. I might as well find a TV that doesn't get on my nerves for any reason and has a great picture for the amount of money I'm spending. I'll try the 32” Panasonic next.

Perfect Bedroom TVPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
Wife and I originally bought a Samsung 450 model 37" for our bedroom but hated it and returned it the next day. Picture was way too brite for a bedroom and 37" was too large (viewing distance was about 9' from wall), and quite frankly don't believe the sales people about the Samsung hype. At this size Samsung is no better than any other brand. They are better in the larger 50" sizes, etc. Not at 32" Don't be fooled, do your research.. We were disappointed as Samsung was our first choice, but I tell you, this Toshiba is perfect. Great picture. And we picked it up 2 weeks ago for only $479. Awesome price. I have a 50" Sony LCD iin the main living room but the Sony's were not good at this 32" size and price point. This is a great TV. The menu is easy to use and can choose sports, standard, movie mode to adjust contrast, etc. and movie mode is perfect at night. I picked up a set of Bose Companion 2 II series computer speakers. They sound great with it for only $100. All around a great TV, very satisfied.

TV reviewPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I purchased the TV for my bedroom about 1 month ago. Overall, it's a great tv. I have Direct TV and with the remote you have to push the button to right to the TV mode to turn it off and when you want to change a channel you have to move the button back to the Direct TV mode. I have a Sony TV that has Direct TV and ONE button controls everything. I called Direct TV to ensure the remote was programmed correctly and was advised Yes. I was advised that TV's are programmed differently. Toshiba should really consider upgrading that feature. I should have returned the TV.
