Pros: Low cost, good picture out of the box (movie mode), Easy setup and calibration, Average person wont need to calibrate, Appealing frame and stand
Cons: Not the best in very bright rooms, off angle viewing fades, no CMS for detailed calibration, smoother with 120hz off
The setup was easy. It took longer to pull off the plastic and get out of the box than to setup. Plug in the cables, power on, set the time zone, input labels, change picture mode to movie... DONE
The remote is nice and light with a ton of features. Sleep timer, freeze frame option,and built in play controls for other Toshiba devices you may own. I only with the remote was backlit for night viewing.
The menu system is simple and loaded with features. Everything you need is right there. Picture, Sound, or Options will cover it. IF you calibrate, the adjusting screen are low enough to read the windowed patterns. Thumbs up.
The picture, is good. I did a quick and dirty calibration with overall satisfaction. Color isn't perfect, but you can get skin tones realistic enough for my taste. It may crush a few shadows here and there, but not a deal breaker. If you want this to be your main TV it "may" be a deal breaker. I did this review while a night time cop drama was on so there were plenty of darker scenes. I got a very natural feel from the level of detail and clarity.
