    this is a good 3D TV, and our whole family likes it. Just put on 3D glasses, which is simple, then we just enjoy 3D effect.

    Customer Rating Great TV when set-up right, 2011-08-29
    This review is from: Toshiba 55TL515U 55-inch
    There are a lot of settings in this TV that can overwhelm some people. My experience with most newer HDTV’s is that factory pre-sets suck. In order to get the most out of the picture they have to be manually adjusted. And I have had a couple of people tell me their TV is broke because the screen keeps getting dark. And adjusting the one setting that is “adaptive contrast” or “Auto Contrast” fixed it completely.
    The images and experience that I received from this TV was phenomenal. Set up the image settings and installed new firmware (didn’t watch with original firmware) watched 3d blu-ray, x-box, and 2d-3d convesion of standard blu-ray. All of which were great. Wi-Fi set-up just fine, Internet apps seem to be slow, TV does take a longer than expected time to power on. Settings,I started with for those interested:
    overall very happy with the tv.

    GREAT TV… I love this tv and for the money I could not beet it. I am very happy with the passive 3d quality and not having to buy exspecive glasses. The movie theater glasses work with it as well. very happy with this tv.

  • Customer Rating Price is not everything., 2011-07-08
    This review is from: Toshiba 55TL515U 55-inch
    Alright let’s get started. I will admit that the price of the Toshiba was very interesting at first. I have had Toshiba TV’s in the past without any concerns. Since my past television decided to wear down I needed a new one. The passive 3D option was the direction I was willing to pay for rather then getting an active display and all the extra costs. So I went with the Toshiba hoping for a good product at a great price. Got the TV shipped for free through Amazon. Shippers did a good job. Set it up and powered it on. First thing that was noticable was the horrible, HORRIBLE backlighting problems with this set. Since I had never seen this TV before, I went to another TV store to find out by looking at several edge lit TV’s. None had a problem with black like this TV had. So I returned it to Amazon and tried to replace it with the same model TV. Returning the TV was fine, and the shipping was great again. So here is the review of the same model and brand of TV.

    Backlighting-Still had problems with backlighting during dark scenes. A streak of light gray moved from the top right of the screen to the bottom left of the screen. This was to much of a problem for me to spend the amount of money that I did on the TV.
    Sound-The speakers on the TV are very poor and high pitched. I tried to adjust them, but it never really changed.
    Powering on-This set does take a long time to power up. Not really a big deal.
    Channel changing-takes longer then you would imagine to switch between channels when watching HDTV through the internal tuner.
    Passive 3D-The passive 3D was great for gaming and movies. No problems at all.
    Picture-The options availiable to adjust the picture is amazing. It displayed great colors and images when the TV was used and the picture was not in a dark screen.
    Remote-Was easy to use and the setup was easy to understand.

    Overall this TV is not a bad TV. Maybe I am just picky, but when you spend money you want a good product. This TV did not meet my expectations for the price it costs. Maybe it is because they purchased the rights of the technology through LG but did not build the TV the same. I don’t know. And the poor backlighting problems I was experiencing with this TV was just too much.

    So I returned the TV and purchased the more expensive LG 55LW6500. What a difference 400 dollars makes! If your just looking for something to throw in a room and don’t really care then the Toshiba will be perfect.

    This review is from: Toshiba 55TL515U 55-inch
    This product is easy to set up and performs and produces an outstanding quality picture in 1080 P and net streaming.
    The 3D feature is great and have only minor glitches with set up from DVD and direct TV this tv is compatable with Direct even though it is not listed.
    All and all this was a great purchase.

    Customer Rating Good TV – Bad Support, 2011-08-31
    This review is from: Toshiba 55TL515U 55-inch
    I returned this TV after 24 days mainly due to the fact that it did not connect to my home network and recognize other DLNA certified devices – which it should have, according to the TV documentation. I tried to get it working by calling the Toshiba customer service but it was nothing less than a horror story. I have never witnessed any worst customer support from any other company. This incident has changed my opinion about Toshiba as a consumer electronics provider.

    The delivery and return process was handled very smoothly by Home Direct provided through Amazon.com

    For any viewer who are not interested in home networking or internet browsing through TV, this is a good product with good picture quality and good 3D quality, the sound is not so good – but it can be adjusted to a reasonable level. The best thing about this TV is the built-in wireless adapter which connects to internet at very high speed and watching videos through Netflix or Vudu are smooth and easy without any buffering. But the internet applications are limited and it does connect to any other devices like the home media server in the network.

    Just do not expect any customer support. I tried to get a response for 22 days without success.

    Customer Rating Awful TV (sent it back), 2011-08-03
    This review is from: Toshiba 55TL515U 55-inch
    Please note that I bought this TV from another online retailer. Anyway, I had a Toshiba 42″ LCD (REGZA 42RV530U) for the last 3 years and I thought it will be a nice upgrade to a 55″ LED, 240Hz and 3D. For this price there was nothing in the market and since I have had pretty good experience with the earlier Toshiba I went for this TV. What a mistake! We’ve had this TV for nearly 2 months now and I’ve sent it back to Toshiba for repair. Immediately after the TV arrived I noticed that there was way too much pixelation while watching cable channels. I tried Netflix and DVDs and the same thing happens. Watching sports on this TV is so awful and every time the ball goes up the air all you see is a bunch of pixels. Same goes with pretty much anything whenever there is motion. So much for the 240Hz! The earlier TV had only 60Hz and I always enjoyed watching sports on it. The backlighting was also pretty bad and there were white sports all over the screen. The earlier Toshiba also had some bleeding, but it was limited to the corners and never really bothered me unless it was a mainly black/dark screen. But this one has multiple patches all over the screen and its very visible while changing channels or inputs and makes your TV looks very cheap. I also updated the original firmware that came with the TV, still no improvement. Regarding 3D, there is a button on the remote which you can use to convert regular 2D programming into 3D. It works okay, but I don’t think people will really use it all that much. Since its a passive 3D TV you can use your regular movie theater glasses (Real 3D) and no need to buy expensive glasses. The TV comes with four of those. For the regular 3D picture quality I can’t comment on it yet as I’m only in the process of getting the new 3D Bluray player. The sound is not great, but I wouldn’t list this as a complaint as a 55″ thin LED TV with hidden speakers should be used with a home theater system.Pros –
    Looks very nice (when switched off!)
    Very thin
    Matt finish screen (I like this better than glossy ones, but its a personal preference)
    Lots of inputs/ports etc (4 HDMI, 1 optical audio out, 1 SVGA etc).
    Nice remote with backlit buttons
    Picture clarity is good when there is no pixelation/backlighting (which happens all the time)
    Built in wi-fi (though app selection is limited and interface is poorly designed)
    Good cable/wire management setup on the back panelCons –
    Picture quality is horrendous. So much pixelation and backlight bleeding
    Takes forever to start once you switch it on
    Doesn’t remember the settings always. This is still a mystery to me. Sometimes the input switches back to ANT (antenna) or the picture size switches back to Zoom etc. No consistency here.
    Limited app selection and Netflix interface is a joke
    No buttons on the panel/side (not a major flaw, but just in case remote is not working or missing there isn’t a backup)
    No true component or RCA audio out ports. The component RGB is combined into one output (Toshiba provides this and comes with the unit). Same for the audio out port (L & R are combined into one). There is an optical out (Toslink) though.
    Remote can’t be configured as universal remote with other devices and/or Apple TV (minor issue)I originally wanted to return the TV and get a Samsung/LG instead, but I called in on the 31st day and hence the retailer won’t take it back. Today I had the repair guys (Toshiba outsources this to some local company) come and pick it up. They already ordered the part (which is the panel and costs more than the TV apparently, the technician showed me the bill and asked how much I paid for the TV!) and hopefully I will get it back in 7-10 business days. Once I get the TV back I will do more testing and come back and update this review. As of now, I can give only two stars for this TV (1 for the looks/design and 1 for the price). Please go and check it out at a local store before you buy.——–
    Update after another month of replacing panel (Oct 3rd 2011).
    The picture quality is not bad, but nothing fixed the pixelation. 3d picture quality is better than regular HD programming and seems to be okay. However, now there is substantial white light bleeding from the corners now and it looks like there is a bulb switched on. It’s impossible to watch dark or night scenes. I’ve had the same issue with my older Toshiba but it wasn’t this prominent. This one is going back for repair again. What a nightmare it has been.

    I had a very large Mitsubishi that was dying a very slow death after 12 years of excellent service. We wanted to replace it with a new version of same brand but they only make a 65 inch now and we could only accommodate a 60 inch. So we went shopping and found we liked the Toshiba 1080p….priced it out and found RC Willey to have the lowest price and they deliver, install and take away the old TV (and ours is huge)….but then I looked at Amazon and I saved $400 to buy from them and they deliver….and that is it….now I have my old monster in my entry hall and no charity will take it….we will figure something out….how do we like the Toshiba?????….the sound is terrible and we are going to have to figure out how to install an external sound system….the picture is good but it cuts off the top of the tallest person in the pictures head….I am used to a big square TV picture. We are not techeeeez so this TV may take some time to get used to.
