I have no problems with my 30HF84. Fantastic set for the $$$. The only minor adjustment I did do was to adjust the overscan a bit. Other than that, fantastic set.
Well worth the money and it looks sharp too. Love the look of the speakers on the bottom.
Sorry folks, but I checked out all the Toshiba HD sets before I made my choice. I thought they looked pretty good at first, but that was before I saw them side-by-side with the Sonys, JVCs and Panasonics. I had access to the picture menu on all of them, but no matter how well I tweaked them, I couldn't make the Toshibas' HD pictures look as sharp or bright as those of these other brands. I finally bought a JVC 30-inch, the AV-30W585, as it looked the best and cost less than any of them.
After 6 months, I'm even more convinced I picked the right one. Its screen expansion mode of an SD picture, to full widescreen, is excellent. I receive SD programs on local HD channels, when they aren't carrying an HD program. These digital SD programs carry 525 lines of resolution and my SD HDD/DVD recorder can play them back at 500 lines of res. When they are expanded to widescreen, there's still about 400 lines of res showing on the JVC and it looks very good for SD. The ability of this JVC HD set to show SD programs at their best, is an important advantage. I didn't see SD display performance that was as good on any of the other brands I mentioned and the Toshiba HD models handled it less well than the others.
I did buy an SD Toshiba TV a year ago, the 24AF44, as an editing monitor for my DV videos. It had the best-looking picture of any SD set I saw and I still highly recommend it for editing and for TV viewing in a small room.
