Fantastic TV for the price!
I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting). However, don't be scared of Vizio because some people have had excessive edge-lighting issues. If your unit has a lot of this issue, then exchange it within the return period.
Great Picture and Good Sound
I needed a small Tv, and was pleasantly surprised by this 23" Toshiba. Great picture and good sound accompanied by lots of input / output options - including 3 HDMI ports, Digital Audio Out, Digital Audio In, PC Audio In, Component video and PC in. Setup and programming was easy, though I did have to consult the online users-guide to answer a few questions.
Amazingly deep blacks, but beleaguered by crummy color
It's frustrating that such spectacular contrast on an affordable TV should go to waste like this. The L1350U (MSRP $499.99) renders some truly beautiful blacks, but its colors just can't keep up. How sad! Like a magnificent race horse with a fear of circles... But in practical terms, regular content appeared washed out and unrealistic, and even Blu-ray discs lacked vibrancy of color. What a waste!
Don't be wooed by this TV's pretty price tag.
This is great tv all around
I bought this tv to use with a Playstation 3 mostly but also as a regular tv and secondary monitor for my Macbook Pro. The 240Hz really made difference in gaming, movement is much realistic than a 60Hz tv. This tv also works great as a computer monitor. Being a web developer and designer, I am very picky about my display and this works great for graphics and coding. This is my fourth Toshiba tv in about 20 years, they all still work great and I have never had a problem with them.
For the price, great picture quality
The Toshiba L2300U series may be entry-level, but its picture quality is not. It seems like Toshiba has taken pains to avoid trapping consumers in a feature fight: "This one is 3D but not smart, this one is both, this one feeds your dog, this one is 3D but doesn't come in 1080p," etc. The L2300U doesn't do anything extra except play back USB content. Its on-board software is basic, and cheap. The design? Also cheap.
Sansui SLED3900 LED TV is GREAT!
This LED TV has a xtal clear picture,(especially with DVDs!), and has a zoom control built into the remote so you can view old 4:3, a little bit of black bars,or no black bars at all.Also has RCA audio out,so you can run the audio to your stereo speakers,for full home theater enjoyment.Lastly,the rear is nearly completely covered,to keep dust out of the TV,(so it will last longer)..I'm extremely happy with this TV!
Comfort of modern HDTV for low price
All in all, Sansui Accu SLED3900 is probably your choice if you are a casual user. You probably want to put it to bedroom or another secondary room. If you are into serious sports or movie viewing or gaming, consider a bigger & faster TV. Just remember those TVs also cost more. This TV is dirt cheap :)
Great TV with DVD Player
I am very pleased with our purchase. The TV was easy to set up and looks really nice on the TV stand I got for it. Picture quality is better than I expected. Sound quality is definitely adequate - it isn't bose quality speakers, but I have no trouble hearing the TV loudly from across the room. I would recommend to someone looking for an affordable TV with great features and a nice design.
32 Emerald series
Been using for one month on average eight hours a day. I like this TV. I use it as a PC monitor sitting 5 to 10 feet away at various times and the picture is very comfortable to look at. Yes there is 444 chroma subsampling if you use the 1366 or 1360 native resolution's. I got it hooked up to HDMI to my PC with a Radeon 7700 video card. Games like Guild wars two look great especially with the program called sweet FX which makes the colors look even better.
Great TV! Stand and positioning is a little strange
THe only strange (not negative, just different) thing about this TV is the stand. This TV does not have a standard upright stand. The stand consists of a V shaped bar that attaches at the bottom back of the TV and the TV actually leans back about 5 degrees to stand up. For my application this is good and bad. The tilt actually helps alleviate some glare from straight on light sources.
Excellent addition to the man cave
Needless to say, I'm very happy with my purchase. Everybody that has seen the TV is equally impressed with the overall picture quality. They immediately assume this TV costs twice what it does. This bright LED backlit TV works great in the "cave" and has minimal glare as a result of the windows in the room. In fact, it's so bright that some may find themselves turning down the backlight at night time.
The remote has a weak signal and must be pointed directly at the TV's IR sensor.
We were impressed with the Toshiba 50L2200U (MSRP $899). This Toshiba produces good colors, has deep blacks, and gets modestly bright. It's also easy on the power consumption, which is a bonus since this TV's menu interface isn't so easy on the eyes. Aside from a few aesthetic details, the 50L2200U didn't give us much to complain about. There is the nagging issue of an unresponsive remote, but that was our biggest complaint with this TV.
Best big-screen lcd TV value
Is an outstanding value highly accurate color and very good bright-room performance, deep black levels with great shadow detail,Out-of-the box the picture of the Magnavox 50MF412B/F7 is excellent,the quality in picture and sound exceeds any of the more expensive brands.
The main trouble with judging TV sets based on their contrast ratios is that there are no industry standards for these ratios.
