I'm surprised nobody started up a thread on these displays yet, and it's getting close to the end of this model series, iirc. So I'll start off by saying that these are pretty good bang for the buck for what you get. Not everyday that even 32" TVs have 3D and 240Hz in them, not to mention local-dim backlights. So far, I'm waiting on mine to ship out and get to me hopefully by the middle of next week. I'm hoping that this will be good for a PC monitor as well as for PS3 Blu-ray and gaming use.
So welcome me to the Toshiba family of owners here. This is my second display after getting a Samsung LN46A750 for my living room, this TV is being used for a small bedroom, where I have my PC and PS3.
Here are the primary features of this set, and let's hear from other owners of these sets, regardless of the size that you have, and your experiences with this:
1080p Full HD, the highest level of HD picture quality available today.
ClearScan® Get awesome, crisp images for quick-action sports and other fast-motion video.
Local Dimming With control of different "zones", it allows for precise and accurate dimming control for deeper images.
Gaming mode Enhances the gaming experience by reducing game controller delay.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ® Improves sound quality through special algorithms that calculate the difference between the original recorded audio level and the level at which it is being played.
HDMI port Scale up your gaming, movies and music on a home theater - with full 1080p high-definition video, and amazingly immersive surround sound.
3D capability Enjoy games and movies in truly immersive 3D
Skype® Make calls right from your couch with Skype® capable TVs.
Built-in WiFi Enjoy convenient in- home connectivity without the cable clutter to stream content from your media server or the internet.
InstaPort Connects in a fraction of the time, for faster HDMI switching between components.
3D Natural (Passive) 3D technology is ideal for families and gamers who want to enjoy in-your-face action, eye-popping movies and games in 3D.
