      Comments about Toshiba 32" Black LCD HDTV:

      Straight out of the box, easy setup, simplified instructions, compatible with older VCR and DVD equipment. It's ready to receive all of the newer components for an easy transition and when I am ready, ABT is my first choice to purchase the equipment from.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was fast and arrived very safely with expert packaging. My compliments to the warehousing and fulfillment staff.

      Comments about Toshiba 32" Black LCD HDTV:

      Pros - Outstanding picture, the design of the TV is very attractive.

      Cons - Whoever designed the user interface should be canned. Very confusing, and I'm pretty literate when it comes to setting up electronics. Every change you make, you have to exit from the setup menu completely. Adding and deleting channels is a major pain, not to mention they don't seem to stay set. Why there is no Add channel/delete channel on the remote is beyond me. PC analog input is shady at best, though I pretty much expected that. Very bad remote control layout and feel. Channel switching is VERY slow, slower than DVRs.

          I really like this product. It's my first LCD TV, so I made sure I researched all options out there. The amount of connections available is great. I've been using the TV to play PS3 and the difference between standard and HD is very impressive. Strongly recommend this product.

              I got this TV as a replacement for another Toshiba, and I must say I like this model much better. The pictures are sharper, crisper even when not watching the HD channels!

                  Just installed my mother-in-law's purchase of the
                  Toshiba 32AV500U. Even though I suggested Sharp, Samsung or even Sony, she liked this unit. Installation was simple and everything looked fine right out of the box. The picture is excellent from the OTA signal, the universal remote is manageable and there are a huge variety of connections for someone who just has a VCR. I'm not sure how it compares to Toshiba's Regza line but it suits her purpose very well. The manufactured date was Jan, 2008 so I don't consider it older technology. Maybe it's just not as current as the latest offerings.
