          Comments about Toshiba 42" Black LCD HDTV:

          To really appreciate the crisp picture of this TV, you have to subscribe to a high-def cable service. The resolution on regular able is terrible. I recently received Direct TV and the picture is amazing. I'm thrilled with this purchase.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was with-in the window that I was quoted, the product arrived in excellent condition. The only issue I had was, when I talked to ABT customer service to set up the delivery, I was very specific about needing help placing the TV on my mantle and was assured I'd get that help. The delivery guys arrived and placed the TV on the floor then they left. I chased them to the elevator and asked for help, one guy seemed quite reluctant to help. The other returned to help me. He was quite helpful.

            Comments about Toshiba 42" Black LCD HDTV:

            Had to call cable three times. They cleared up one problem over the phone and came out twice to fix the others. They said everything was set up properly. I've had the closed captioning come on three times without touching anything and go away later. Daughter has the same set and gets a much better picture.
