Amazon.com Product Description

Toshiba takes DLP technology into the future with the 52-inch TheaterWide 52HM84 HD-ready rear-projection TV. The 16:9 52HM84 uses a proprietary system called TALEN (Toshiba Advanced Light Engine); based on Texas Instruments' HD2+ DLP chip, it enhances brightness and contrast while keeping the 1,280 x 720-pixel progressive resolution (720p). Toshiba's TheaterWide TVs challenge direct-view CRT models when it comes to reproducing deep blacks and details in dark or shadowy scenes.

What is DLP?
The DLP processor DLP, or Digital Light Processing, is a technology that bounces a colored light beam across an array of hundreds of thousands of hinge-mounted microscopic mirrors attached to a single chip, called a "micro mirror device" (below, pictured with the head of a pin).
DLP mirrors dwarfed by the head of a pin
Each of the mirrors can be pointed toward or away from the light source thousands of times per second, providing not only minute color detail but also sharper resolution than even LCD displays.
Detail of resolution comparison between LCD and DLP
This set is HDTV-ready (it needs an optional hi-def receiver to get HD signals), but can improve standard-definition video thanks to Toshiba's multi-step PixelPure video processing system, which optimizes the three main picture quality factors: resolution, contrast, and color. All incoming signals are upconverted by the built-in "scaler" to match the DLP chip's native 720p resolution.

PixelPure encompasses 8 different processing circuits. Among its components are: 6.2 million-pixel oversampling (for higher perceived resolution), real-speed progressive scanning (which uses additional sampling points to create smoother diagonal lines), a Magic Square algorithm (for smooth, natural color gradation), Dynamic Contrast Enhancer (for higher perceived contrast and increased color saturation), and Color Detail Enhancer (to maintain fine image detail in color-saturated areas).

DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology uses an optical semiconductor, known as the Digital Micromirror Device, or DMD chip, to digitally manipulate light. The chip contains a rectangular array of up to 1.3 million microscopic mirrors, each of which measures less than one-fifth the width of a human hair. A DMD panel's micromirrors are mounted on tiny hinges that enable them to tilt either toward the light source (on) or away from it (off)--creating a light or dark pixel on the projection surface. The bit-streamed image code entering the semiconductor directs each mirror to switch on and off up to several thousand times per second, such that the mirrors can reflect pixels in up to 1,024 shades of gray.

The HD2+ DLP chip ensures an ultra-clean image by filling in the dimples, or vias, in the mirrors to avoid stray light. It increases both brightness and contrast, resulting in an impressive color-corrected contrast ratio (2,200:1) at 1,100 ANSI Lumens. The set's TheaterFine HD Super Fine Pitch screen reduces the physical space between the lines on the lenticular screen, resulting in a finer, sharper, more detailed picture.

Toshiba's DFine Hi-Speed VSM (velocity scan modulation) improves contrast and overall picture sharpness, while the CableClear DNR+ digital noise reduction optimizes poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable, further eliminating video noise ("snow") for a clean, crisp image. Cinema Mode circuitry (3:2 pulldown switch) identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction helps eliminate dot crawl and color bleed and significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricately detailed scenes. Color temperature controls allow you to adjust white balance. The "Warm" setting reduces the color temperature to an NTSC standard 6,500 degrees Kelvin and delivers a redder image that is ideal for display in a dimly lit room. "Medium" and "Cool" provide a progressively bluer image for the best picture as room light levels are increased.

The 52HM84 has plenty of inputs for connecting all your audio and video components. In back you'll find two RF, two composite video, two S-Video, and two HD ColorStream component video, as well as an HDMI digital input. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface that supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus 8-channel digital audio--all on a single cable. A set of front composite and S-video inputs make hooking up a game console or camcorder a snap.

Other features include HD Window dual-tuner POP (picture-on-picture) with PIP sound for listening to two programs simultaneously, the new Radiance DC lamp with high brightness and lower power modes for extended life, individual audio/video settings by input type, sleep and wake timers, Real Speed progressive scanning to create smoother diagonal lines, Color Transient Improver for sharp transitions on color changes without bleeding, and Color Detail Enhancer to maintain fine image detail in color saturated areas.

Aside from the 20-watts-per-channel stereo speaker system, the 52HM84 uses MTS for programming with stereo sound, SAP for receiving a second audio track in another language. Meanwhile, SRS WOW combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass (yet another low-frequency enhancement) and Focus (which clarifies voices). The StableSound volume leveler eliminates drastic volume spikes while changing channels or when channels go to a commercial break.

Amazon.com Product Description

Smaller than previous models and boasting an ever-sharper image, Toshiba's 26HL84 LCD television is stocked to the gills with life-simplifying features and sophisticated image enhancements. With minimal glare, no screen curvature, and no irritating high-frequency screen noise, the 26-inch set stands fully apart from its CRT counterparts. Set it on a table using the supplied stand or mount it on the wall using optional brackets for ultimate space efficiency.

The 1,366 x 768-resolution set boasts not only 2 ColorStream HD high-definition (up to 720p) component-video inputs, but also a Digital Visual Interface (DVI-HDTV) for a direct digital connection with an HD set-top box or HD satellite receiver (sold separately).

LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, freedom from eye strain (no screen flickering or radiation emissions), quiet operation (no high-pitch "flyback" noise, an issue with CRT TVs), accurate image geometry (no curvature distortion or susceptibility to magnetic interference from, say, speakers), long screen life (with no risk of image burn-in), space savings, and light weight/easy positioning.

Toshiba's PixelPure proprietary digital video processing is a suite of 8 different circuits that together create a consistently clear, deep, and accurate picture: 6.2 million pixel oversampling (for higher perceived resolution with decreased image distortion), Real Speed Progressive Scanning (which uses additional sampling points to create smoother diagonal lines), Magic Square Algorithm (for smooth and natural color gradation), Dynamic Contrast Enhancer (for higher perceived contrast and increased color saturation and purity), Super Real Transient and Small Signal Sharpness (for sharp transitions from dark to bright), Color Transient Improver (for sharp transitions on color changes without bleeding), and Color Detail Enhancer (to maintain fine image detail in color saturated areas).

A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction ensures sharp, clean pictures from RF (older VCR, laserdisc) and composite-video signals. Cinema Mode (3:2 pulldown switch) circuitry identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

Other features include HD Window POP (picture-on-picture) with split-screen and 12-multiwindow viewing as well as PIP sound (which lets you watch and listen to two programs simultaneously, even HD sources); TheaterLink IR (through which you can operate your video components by pointing the remote at the TV screen, even if the components are hidden away); CableClear DNR+ digital noise reduction; individual audio/video settings by input type; sleep and wake timers; SurfLock; and a host of parental controls including GameTimer, channel lock, and video input lock.

Dual ColorStream HD component-video inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) provide the ultimate picture quality from high-resolution component-video signals (as from compatible DVD players or satellite receivers). Two sets of rear AV inputs and a set of front AV inputs (all including S-video) foster easy connection with a camcorder or gaming console, and a rear audio output--choose from fixed- or variable-level feeds--lets you hook the set up with a surround receiver.

And the 10-watts-per-channel 26HL84 offers a little something--well, a lot of something--extra in the bass department: Toshiba's Sub-Bass System (SBS), which heightens the impact of low-frequency audio. Meanwhile, SRS WOW combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass (yet another low-frequency enhancement) and Focus (which clarifies voices). If that's not enough aural excitement, you can also enjoy 2-channel simulated surround courtesy of Dolby Virtual Surround.

Amazon.com Product Description

Enrich your life with the elegance of a flat-screen display and the simplicity of a combination DVD player and television. Toshiba's 23HLV84 saves space while simplifying hookups. Plug it in, pop in a movie, and sit back to enjoy your program in vivid, lifelike high-contrast detail. With minimal glare, no screen curvature, and no irritating high-frequency screen noise, this 23-inch set stands fully apart from its CRT counterparts. Set it on a table using the supplied stand or mount it on the wall using optional brackets for ultimate space efficiency.

The set's built-in DVD player is compatible with DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, VCD, audio CD, and recordable CDs filled with JPEG digital photos or MP3/WMA audio files.

LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, long screen life with no risk of image burn-in, and space savings. This 1,366 x 768-resolution set boasts not only 2 ColorStream HD high-definition (up to 720p) component-video inputs, but also a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) for a direct digital connection with an HD set-top box or HD satellite receiver (sold separately).

HD Dynamic Contrast increases contrast and color saturation to create deep, rich images. The intelligent circuitry analyzes both the dark and bright areas of the picture, separately optimizing the dynamic range in each area. Picture enhancements include luminance transient improvement, green enhancement, and blue stretch. This circuit is only active in sports mode and works with all inputs.

A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction ensures sharp, clean pictures from RF (older VCR, laserdisc) and composite-video signals. Cinema Mode (3:2 pulldown switch) circuitry identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

Dual ColorStream HD component-video inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) provide the ultimate picture quality from high-resolution component-video signals (as from compatible DVD players or satellite receivers). Two sets of rear AV inputs (one with S-video) and a set of front AV inputs foster easy connection with a camcorder or gaming console, and a rear audio output lets you hook the set up with a surround receiver.

And the 5-watts-per-channel 23HLV84 offers SRS WOW processing, which combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass (yet another low-frequency enhancement) and Focus (which clarifies voices). If that's not enough aural excitement, you can also enjoy 2-channel simulated surround courtesy of Dolby Virtual Surround.

HDMI is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link the set with any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi-channel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great television for the price
After a spilled water incident killed my five year old television, I finally decided to upgrade. Plasmas and LCD's are still too expensive, so I went with this one.

I think it is an absolutely great television.With the BBE and surround sound on, the sound from the tv speakers is clear and powerful.I used to have to really pump up the volume on my old tv, but now at low levels it is still doing very nicely.

The smart sound feature is also very powerful.On my old tv, watching DVD's meant putting the volume up almost to maximum.Now, the volume stays consistent despite the input.

The image is very clear and sharp.I had to lower the contrast levels significantly, and a couple of others from their defaults to get rid of a slight glow and washed out feeling with the default settings.However, with those minor adjustments, it looks really fantastic.

Only negative is that Amazon ships through Eagle shipping for these large packages, and they are a very rinky-dink operation, at least near Portland, OR.Many delays, some caused by them just forgetting to put the tv on the truck (they even told me that directly - sorry, just forgot!).If I bought a large item like this again, I would be very tempted to just drive to Best Buy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great TV
I bought this TV after lots of online searching.It received great reviews, and the price was good so I went for it.I'm glad I did!I've had it for about 7 months now and I have become the envy of everyone in the house!We have two 36" TVs in the house, yet my little 27" is the favorite.The widescreen is great and the color sharpness is perfect.The stereo sound is also very good.It's easy to install and hook up other stereo/video components.The only question remaining is how long it will last, but I'm optimistic.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, Mid-priced television
After extensive research and time spent in various stores looking at screens, I ended up buying the Toshiba 27AF45.I have been quite happy with the sound and picture quality, specifically with the BBE sound enhancer and surround-sound features, and with the lack of setup needed to achieve a good picture.Front A/V inputs, input lockout and a component input round out a nice price/feature package.

One negative is that there is no color temperature control, so you are only able to adjust hue and color, brightness and contrast, but with contrast up, brightness down a little, and color backed off a few notches, it rivals the picture on any professional, non-HD, higher-priced monitor in the TV studios where I work.Bravo!

I haven't had it long-enough to know how it will hold up over the long-term, but unless I'm mistaken, it seems pretty solid.Now if I can just get all the remotes to play well together! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Toshiba's 57H84 HDTV-ready projection TV is well equipped to make the most of your high-end digital and analog source components. The 57-inch set is as loaded with image technologies as it is with connections and conveniences, thereby simplifying your home-theater experience while also enriching it.

The 57H84's exclusive PowerFocus HD lens system was designed specifically for HDTV programming. Most lens systems cannot faithfully reproduce a high-definition signal. PowerFocus HD uses six elements and a quality color-correction system to produce an image that is up to 65 percent sharper than an image produced by standard lens systems. The PowerFocus HD's higher beam current and finer beam spot provide a 30 percent increase in sharpness and a 10 percent increase in brightness over standard CRTs. Toshiba's four-element PowerFocus HC lenses offer 50 percent higher contrast than comparable 5-element lenses, giving you clear, deep, three-dimensional images.

The set's TheaterFine HD super fine-pitch screen uses a .52 mm design to reduce the space between lines on the lenticular screen, which sharpens the image. And since not everything you watch will be high-definition in origin (wouldn't that be nice), CrystalScan HDSC upconverts all video signals (including 480i/p) to 1080i HD. This significantly reduces jagged-line artifacts for a smoother, more natural image. (Selectable 540p, for those who want a progressive-scan image from a progressive-scan source, is available through the onscreen menu.) CableClear DNR+ Digital Noise Reduction circuitry--selectable by input--optimizes poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable by eliminating video noise (snow).

Meanwhile, DFine high-speed velocity-scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas.

A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction processes RF and composite-video signals for a sharp, clean picture. This advanced filter significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricate scenes. The TouchFocus digital convergence system (which creates perfect corner-to-corner focus at the press of a button) and AccuFocus 56-point manual convergence system let you choose the best calibration method for your system.

The 57H84 is loaded with connections of all stripes, including a HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) HDTV input, which gives you a pure, uncompressed video connection with your DTV receiver or set-top box (not included). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multichannel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

For audio, the 57H84 offers SRS WOW, combining SRS 3D (which creates a wide three-dimensional sound field), TruBass (which boosts bass frequency perception for dramatic low-frequency effects), and Focus (which raises the perceived sound image vertically to clarify voices) to greatly enhance your home-theater sound.

The set's split-cabinet design allows the cabinet to be divided for ease of delivery and installation.

5-0 out of 5 stars So far so great!
I've had this TV for about 2 weeks now and it's been great. Great picture with DVDs and HDTV. If you don't plan on using this primarily for DVDs or HD, then you won't be as impressed with the picture. It really does depend on the source and the connections you use. My neighbor sells home theater equipment for a living, he recommended this TV for it's picture, and so far I agree with him. The delivery from amazon was quick(about a week), the delivery company was very helpful and curtious. So far an all around excellent experience.

My neighbor had a better deal on this TV but with the Shipping and Tax it would have cost more.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great starter HDTV or bedroom set
The Toshiba 26HF85 is my first HDTV set. My criteria were 1080i support, HDMI and dual HD component inputs, in a small cabinet. With its speakers on the bottom, this set is very compact. At only 27.5" wide, it is small enough to fit on an extra nightstand in my bedroom. I have a DirecTV H10 Hi-Def receiver hooked to it via HDMI, along with a PlayStation 2 via component. The picture quality is superb, although I am certainly no expert in that area.
This set has a well-designed and attractive remote control with buttons that glow in the dark. The cabinet has nice styling as well, and even has built-in handles like the smaller Toshibas. The menu system is fairly easy to use and offers plenty of options, but the on-screen graphics are low-quality and are hideous compared to the gorgeous menus in the newer Samsungs. This set does have auto aspect ratio sensing, but I don't feel that it works as well as it could.
The 26HF85 is an attractively-priced HDTV if you don't require an on-board ATSC tuner. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Toshiba's 42HP84 42-inch plasma television will thrill fans of both movies and sports with its widescreen, portrait-thin chassis, full high-definition resolution, phenomenal picture enhancements, and great sound. The set produces 10 watts per channel stereo sound with both Dolby Virtual Surround and SRS WOW technology to enliven your viewing.

A plasma screen gives you incredibly vivid colors, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than LCD screens), and a casing that's easy place due to its slim size--the 42HP84 is a mere 4.9 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting (a table stand is included). Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed in close proximity to lighting or sound systems. You do, however, need to be wary of image burn-in (wherein long-held stationary images leave a permanent impression in the screen).

Heading up the great features is Toshiba's PixelPure proprietary digital video processing, which encompasses 8 different processing circuits that together create a consistently clear, deep, and accurate picture. Among PixelPure's components are: 6.2 million-pixel oversampling (for higher perceived resolution), real-speed progressive scanning (which uses additional sampling points to create smoother diagonal lines), a Magic Square algorithm (for smooth, natural color gradation), Dynamic Contrast Enhancer (for higher perceived contrast and increased color saturation), and Color Detail Enhancer (to maintain fine image detail in color-saturated areas).

HD Dynamic Contrast continually analyzes picture information and enhances those parts of the picture with the most detail information which results in sharper, deeper, more film-like images. The 42HP84's 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter further enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

A pair of ColorStream HD component-video inputs provides the ultimate picture quality from high-resolution component-video signals, like those from DTV set-top boxes, progressive DVD players, or satellite receivers. Other connections include a direct-digital DVI input with high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP), 3 each composite- and S-video inputs, and a composite-video output (with both fixed- and variable-level audio outs) for use with a VCR or surround receiver. Front-panel inputs simplify connections with camcorders and gaming consoles.

HD Window POP (picture-on-picture) accepts 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i signals and can even display 2 different-resolution signals simultaneously. The split-screen function lets you adjust the size of the POP boxes and will even let you view both 16:9 and 4:3 images at the same time. The set's 12 MultiWindow system makes it possible to see the main picture while viewing your favorites or doing a channel scan in 11 smaller boxes.

When hooked up to the IR output, the supplied TheaterLink IR dongle lets you operate up to six video components by simply pointing the remote at the TV screen, even if the components are hidden away in cabinets or out of view.

Cinema Mode (3:2 pulldown) circuitry identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material. Four TheaterWide picture modes enable full-screen viewing of varying widescreen movie formats, while color temperature control provides three selectable temperature settings for achieving an optimum white balance.

SRS WOW creates an enveloping sound with enhanced bass and great dialogue reproduction. This system combines SRS 3D (for wide, three-dimensional sound), TruBass (which boosts bass-frequency perception for more dramatic effects); and Focus (which raises the perceived sound "image" vertically to clarify voices, even at low listening levels).

Amazon.com Product Description

Toshiba takes DLP technology into the future with its 46-inch TheaterWide 46HM84 HD-ready rear-projection TV. The 16:9 46HM84 uses a proprietary system called TALEN (Toshiba Advanced Light Engine); based on Texas Instruments' HD2+ DLP chip, it enhances brightness and contrast while keeping the 1,280 x 720-pixel progressive resolution (720p). Toshiba's TheaterWide TVs challenge direct-view CRT models when it comes to reproducing deep blacks and details in dark or shadowy scenes.

What is DLP?
The DLP processor DLP, or Digital Light Processing, is a technology that bounces a colored light beam across an array of hundreds of thousands of hinge-mounted microscopic mirrors attached to a single chip, called a "micro mirror device" (below, pictured with the head of a pin).
DLP mirrors dwarfed by the head of a pin
Each of the mirrors can be pointed toward or away from the light source thousands of times per second, providing not only minute color detail but also sharper resolution than even LCD displays.
Detail of resolution comparison between LCD and DLP
This set is HDTV-ready (it needs an optional hi-def receiver to get HD signals), but can improve standard-definition video thanks to Toshiba's multi-step PixelPure video processing system, which optimizes the three main picture quality factors: resolution, contrast, and color. All incoming signals are upconverted by the built-in "scaler" to match the DLP chip's native 720p resolution.

PixelPure encompasses 8 different processing circuits. Among its components are: 6.2 million-pixel oversampling (for higher perceived resolution), real-speed progressive scanning (which uses additional sampling points to create smoother diagonal lines), a Magic Square algorithm (for smooth, natural color gradation), Dynamic Contrast Enhancer (for higher perceived contrast and increased color saturation), and Color Detail Enhancer (to maintain fine image detail in color-saturated areas).

DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology uses an optical semiconductor, known as the Digital Micromirror Device, or DMD chip, to digitally manipulate light. The chip contains a rectangular array of up to 1.3 million microscopic mirrors, each of which measures less than one-fifth the width of a human hair. A DMD panel's micromirrors are mounted on tiny hinges that enable them to tilt either toward the light source (on) or away from it (off)--creating a light or dark pixel on the projection surface. The bit-streamed image code entering the semiconductor directs each mirror to switch on and off up to several thousand times per second, such that the mirrors can reflect pixels in up to 1,024 shades of gray.

The HD2+ DLP chip ensures an ultra-clean image by filling in the dimples, or vias, in the mirrors to avoid stray light. It increases both brightness and contrast, resulting in an impressive color-corrected contrast ratio (2,200:1) at 1,100 ANSI Lumens. The set's TheaterFine HD Super Fine Pitch screen reduces the physical space between the lines on the lenticular screen, resulting in a finer, sharper, more detailed picture.

Toshiba's DFine Hi-Speed VSM (velocity scan modulation) improves contrast and overall picture sharpness, while the CableClear DNR+ digital noise reduction optimizes poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable, further eliminating video noise ("snow") for a clean, crisp image. Cinema Mode circuitry (3:2 pulldown switch) identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction helps eliminate dot crawl and color bleed and significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricately detailed scenes. Color temperature controls allow you to adjust white balance. The "Warm" setting reduces the color temperature to an NTSC standard 6,500 degrees Kelvin and delivers a redder image that is ideal for display in a dimly lit room. "Medium" and "Cool" provide a progressively bluer image for the best picture as room light levels are increased.

The 46HM84 has plenty of inputs for connecting all your audio and video components. In back you'll find two RF, two composite video, two S-video, and two HD ColorStream component video, as well as an HDMI digital input. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface that supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus 8-channel digital audio--all on a single cable. A set of front composite and S-video inputs make hooking up a game console or camcorder a snap.

Other features include HD Window dual-tuner POP (picture-on-picture) with PIP sound for listening to two programs simultaneously, the new Radiance DC lamp with high brightness and lower power modes for extended life, individual audio/video settings by input type, sleep and wake timers, Real Speed progressive scanning to create smoother diagonal lines, Color Transient Improver for sharp transitions on color changes without bleeding, and Color Detail Enhancer to maintain fine image detail in color saturated areas.

Aside from the 20-watts-per-channel stereo speaker system, the 46HM84 uses MTS for programming with stereo sound, SAP for receiving a second audio track in another language. Meanwhile, SRS WOW combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass (yet another low-frequency enhancement) and Focus (which clarifies voices). The StableSound volume leveler eliminates drastic volume spikes while changing channels or when channels go to a commercial break.

Amazon.com Product Description

The picture size and image quality you've always dreamed of is here. Toshiba's 46H84 widescreen projection television will make your favorite films and TV programs jump to life. Just hook up a DVD player, digital TV set-top box, digital satellite system, a cable television box--you name it. Heading the set's great features is CrystalScan HDSC, which converts all 480i and 480p signals (as from progressive-scan DVD players and DTV set-top boxes) to high-definition 1080i. This significantly reduces jagged-line artifacts for a smooth, natural image. Selectable 540p, for those who want to maintain a progressive-scan image from a progressive-scan source, is an option in the on-screen menu.

A stellar 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction provides accurate processing of RF and composite-video signals for a sharp, clean picture. This high-end filter significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flickering, in complex or intricately detailed scenes.

The set's HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) input allows a direct digital connection with a DTV set-top box or receiver. HDMI is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver) with your TV or monitor. HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi-channel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

DFine high-speed velocity-scan modulation improves contrast and overall picture sharpness by changing the speed of the electron beam as it transitions between bright and dark areas of the picture. Further, the TouchFocus automatic digital convergence system creates perfect corner-to-corner focus at the press of a button. (Manual override adjustments are available.)

For audio, the 46H84 offers SRS WOW, combining SRS 3D (which creates a wide, three-dimensional sound field), TruBass (which boosts bass-frequency perception for more dramatic low-frequency effects), and Focus (which raises the sound image vertically to create clearer voices)--enhancing sound quality through the set's own two speakers (which are powered by five watts per channel).

Built-in lifting handles greatly simplify positioning and, if necessary, repositioning.

Amazon.com Product Description

With its widescreen dimension and wealth of picture-enhancing technologies, Toshiba's remarkably affordable 30HF84 is set to bring you into the digital future. The set sports 2 high-definition component-video inputs and an HDMI direct-digital connection for hookup with a DTV set-top box or HD satellite receiver. What's more, the 30-inch set's FST PURE fine-pitch flat picture tube not only looks great, it minimizes unwanted reflections from room light and increases viewing angles while enhancing picture linearity.

Improving upon standard interlaced signals (like those from DVD player, cable box, and VCR composite-video outputs), Toshiba's CrystalScan HDSC upconverts all signals to 1080i resolution. A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction ensures sharp, clean pictures from RF (older VCR, laserdisc) and composite-video signals.

DFine high-speed VSM (velocity-scan modulation) also improves definition at picture edges by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas. Finally, Cinema Mode (3:2 pulldown reversal) circuitry identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

As standard video amplifiers increase the gain of the video signal, video bandwidth tends to decrease. This eliminates the higher frequencies, reducing resolution. The 30HF84's wideband video amplifier maintains the higher frequencies, enabling higher resolution and greater sharpness and detail.

Dual ColorStream HD component-video inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) provide the ultimate picture quality from high-resolution component-video signals (as from compatible DVD players or satellite receivers). And, with direct video input selection, you can directly select inputs from the remote's numbered keypad instead of having to scroll through all of them.

Two sets of rear AV inputs and a set of front AV inputs (all including S-video) foster easy connection with a camcorder or gaming console, and a rear AV output lets you hook the set up with a surround receiver.

The set's stereo speakers are powered by 10 watts per channel, and SRS WOW processing combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass low-frequency enhancement, and Focus (which clarifies voices).

Amazon.com Product Description

Enjoy vivid, high-contrast pictures from Toshiba's 32-inch FST Black picture tube. Affordable, stylish, and loaded with features, the 32A43 makes a great upgrade to a DVD or satellite-based home theater. The set's FST Black picture tube offers a flatter screen than Toshiba's popular Blackstripe tube, further reducing ambient light reflections and provides finer dot pitch and increased resolution. This tube increases the screen's viewing angle and improves linearity over standard tubes.

The 32A43's three-line digital comb filter and vertical contour correction further enhance resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

The set performs stereo audio and SAP (second audio program) reception, the latter of which is often used to broadcast an alternate-language track. The 32A43's 5-watt (each) stereo speakers derive a heightened sense of separation from their double-baffle speaker enclosures. A ColorStream component-video input provides the ultimate picture quality from interlaced component-video signals; standard composite-video inputs accommodate all DVD players and most other video sources.

You get two sets of rear AV inputs (one with S-video) as well as one set of front AV inputs for easy connection with a camcorder or gaming console. A rear AV output lets you hook the set up with a surround receiver. The 32A43 also features color-temperature control, V-chip parental controls, a sleep timer, and a glow-in-the-dark universal remote control.

With the power return feature, the TV will automatically assume its last power state following a power outage, turning on again if it lost power while you were watching.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome 32" for the price.
Since the other reviews here already mention this TV's features etc. Ill just get right to it,I saw this TV in Consmuer reports as the highest rated 32" model among the many models tested,also Toshiba has one of the best repair history records according to Consumer reports , afer looking around I found it at Bestbuy.com on sale for $407 (as of 02/3/04), I'm really picky with picture quality (maybe a bit to much? =) but this TV has a really nice picture ,in fact it comes very close in picture quality to our $700 Flatscreen 27" Wega ,Also the sound quality is much better on the Toshiba, my only (minor) complaint would be the 'Black Retention' is a slightly weak (a tv's ability to maintain black in dark scenes without it looking 'grey') turning down the brightness helped this a lot but still not quite on par with the Wega,The factory picture presets on the Toshiba are badly set in my opinion ,After running the Video Essentials DVD I noticed this TV has very good Convergence and only a slight Geometry issue in the bottom left corner(picture "sags" down a bit) ,After running through the video test patterns on the dvd I ended up with the following settings: Contrast 53,Brightness 43,Sharpness 58, Color 48, Tint 0 ,Color Temperature: Medium, This may not be the 'perfect' settings for you but im 99% sure it'l look a lot better than any of the factory preset settings (Movie/Standard/Sports). With these settings watching Cable,playing Xbox or watching DVD's all look great.

The remote control is nice ,very similar to a Sony's remote layout,I was able to easily program it to operate my DVD player, VCR and Cable box.

For the money you really cant go wrong,Excellent TV overall,Also worth noting is even tho its not a Flatscreen it still looks flatter than most conventional 32" TV's I've seen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great picture
I just got this TV to replace an old 31" GE TV I had. I looked at a bunch of 27" and 32" TV and this TV had by far the most crisp picture. It even looked better than a lot of the HD ready TVs. Make sure when looking for a TV that you see how it looks in low light screens as well as how crisp the lettering seems. These are the two areas where I could really see a difference in picture quality. Also, play around with the picture settings on the display TVs. It makes a big difference especially if someone else has monkeyed around with the settings.

Overall, if you are in the market for a conventional 32" TV, this one is a great purchase especially for the price. Lots of inputs, great picture, and good sound.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Picture and Value....
I also can't say enough about this tv.. I was in the market
for a flat screen HD TV ready 32" or higher and looked and
did the research and waited and didn't rush. I had gone to
the stores and compared pictures and I always went back to this
Toshiba, its even got a screen that is pretty close to flat and bought it and I love this set and I saved hundreds
of dollars if I went to HD TV ready. Great Picture and value
for those looking for a reasonably priced TV with great credentials. It also ConsumerReports #1 rated 32" Conventional tv for the money
even listed slightly better than the more than twice as expensive Sony FD trinitron Wega V310 at over $900.00.

5-0 out of 5 stars great picture tv for a reasonable price
This 32" is a great tv for the price. Since we don't have digital cable we don't need a digital tv and the plasmas tvs are too expensive for us. So after comparing the reviews on amazon and at the store, we decided to get this tv. So far so good though it is on the heavy side so hopefully it will stay in one spot. The colors and sharpness are great! We are happy with it so hope it lasts!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Striking Picture
A month after purchasing a Sharp 36C231 TV for our basement, primarily for playing DVD's (an excellent TV, especially for DVD's, see my review of the Sharp 36C230), my wife and I decided that we would like to replace our ten year old 27 inch TV in our family room, which we use for daily TV watching.

We settled on a 32 inch analog TV as providing the best bang for the buck. The consumer magazines and the internet reviews (including those on Amazon) gave very good ratings to the Toshiba 32A43. We did a side by side comparison of the Toshiba with other 32 inch TV's by Panasonic (32G8), JVC (32432) and Phillips (32PT563S). While all the TV's looked good, the Toshiba seemed to have the most striking picture and we decided to buy it.

After one week, we are very impressed. The picture is different than other TV's, as the colors are quite strong. Some might find this a bit unrealistic, in which case they could always turn down the colors and the contrast, but my wife and I like it very much. The reception is very sharp, probably due to the 3 line digital comb filter. The sound is outstanding and the surround sound feature is a plus. It has component inputs, which should give a fine DVD picture, but we don't plan to play DVD's on this TV (at least for the near future). Overall, if you like its distinctive picture, which my wife and I do, it's a great TV. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Featuring a sleek, space-saving design, Toshiba's 26HF84 HDTV-ready CRT television uses bottom-mounted stereo speakers and a stylish FST PURE flat picture tube, which also happens to minimize image-degrading ambient light reflections. The 26-inch set is as loaded with image technologies as it is with connections and conveniences, simplifying your home-theater experience while enriching it.

DFine high-speed velocity-scan modulation improves definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas. A wideband video amplifier minimizes noise and distortion.

A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction processes RF and composite-video signals for a sharp, clean picture. This advanced filter significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricate scenes.

And, since not everything you watch will be high-definition in origin (wouldn't that be nice), CrystalScan HDSC upconverts all video signals (including 480i/p) to 1080i HD. This significantly reduces jagged-line artifacts for a smoother, more natural image. (Selectable 540p, for those who want a progressive-scan image from a progressive-scan source, is available through the onscreen menu.) CableClear DNR+ Digital Noise Reduction circuitry--selectable by input--optimizes poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable by eliminating video noise (snow).

The 26HF84 is loaded with connections of all stripes, including a HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) HDTV input, which gives you a pure, uncompressed video connection with your DTV receiver or set-top box (not included).

The compact but versatile CRT television is equipped to deliver vivid, high-contrast pictures FST PURE flat picture tube, which looks great and minimizes geometric distortions in the process. Generous connection options and parental controls let you and your kids use the set for a variety of applications.

The 24AF44's 3-line digital comb filter further enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt). Meanwhile, velocity-scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas.

A shadow mask is a thin sheet of perforated metal behind the screen that restricts electron flow, each hole in the sheet corresponding to a single pixel. An Invar mask uses an alloy that's especially resistant to the high temperatures generated by the electron beam, allowing in a brighter, clearer picture.

Toshiba provides a user-selectable 16:9 mode for displaying widescreen images, which actively scans the entire screen, creating gray bars above and below the picture area. This significantly reduces the chances of uneven CRT wear or "burn-in."

The 5-watts-per-channel set receives stereo audio programming and SAP (second audio program), often used to broadcast an alternate-language track. The 24AF44 derives a heightened sense of stereo separation from its double-baffle speaker system, and BBE High-Definition Sound improves speech intelligibility and restores the dynamic range of compressed musical passages.

A ColorStream component-video input provides the ultimate picture quality from interlaced component-video signals; standard composite-video inputs accommodate all DVD players and most other video sources.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good television
I purchased this television from Amazon a few weeks ago. It took about two and a half weeks to get it.

We're using it in a home gym in the garage.

I have to say that the picture is quite good and the sound equally so.

My dislikes are that the picture tube front is highly polished. If there is a lamp or a glare anywhere, you see it. I had to purchase a glare filter from a company in N. California for US$79.99 to cut the glare by about 50% and make it usable.

I'm sure if it was in the house this might not be a problem.

The other thing is that the remote is not particularly user-friendly. Set-up of the picture is awkward and inconsistent. The remote responds slowly to commands. We have a satellite feed and the TV must stay on channel three, just like a cable feed. If you don't turn on the satellite unit first, the TV won't lock on to channel 3 and goes to 224. A little over-engineered, I would say. Give me snow on channel 3 and let me decide what to do with it.

The unit takes some hard handling by the freight carrier and is packed OK, but now overly well packed. The plastic bezel on the left upper side of the picture tube was bent in shipping. Not enough to file a claim, but not perfect.

It has all the inputs one would ever need, however we're just using it as a simple TV.

The headphone jack placed in a flip-up cover on the front is a plus.

Lots of contrast, color saturation and good focus at all corners.

Overall, most would be quite happy with this unit. For $299 and free shipping, I can't see how one would do much better.

I actually tried an LCD set and didn't like it. But if you want a sharp picture and great sound without paying alot, check out the Toshiba 24AF44. The screen looks larger than 24 inches and the appearance of the silver color is attractive. It's really
easy to set the video and audio choices using the menu on the
practical remote. If you haven't kept up with the latest advancements in CRT technology, just compare this set with a
LCD or plasma. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. What can I say, a wonderful TV for under $300 and free shipping from Amazon. The picture using a DVD is flat out amazing. A real winner you won't regret buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars great 24" TV
Did my research and noted many of the same problems with the sony 24" model that others had cited (fuzzy picture at corners).
Came down to this one vs. the similar offering from JVC. I've always loved JVC products and it was basically a tossup--at 92 dollars less though the toshiba won hands down.

Exceptionally good sound (given the usual limitations of onboard speakers) using just the TV's own speakers...the bbe function does wonders for dialog clarity. I'll probably hook up to a low end surround system though. Great small room TV and the prices of the flat screens have finally gotten to be a real bargain. I highly reccommend. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Toshiba's incredibly thin, high-definition-ready 32-inch TheaterWide 32HL84 flat-panel LCD TV puts you right in the action, offering up detailed images no matter what source you're using--DVD player, digital TV set-top box, digital satellite receiver, or cable television box. The 16:9-aspect-ratio set is capable of true 720p HDTV resolution when connected to an optional HD receiver;has an outstanding 800:1 contrast ratio, with Toshiba's HD Dynamic Contrast increasing contrast and color saturation to create deep, rich images; and enough connections for almost anything.

For starters, the 1,280-x-768-resolution set has two high-definition (up to 720p) component-video inputs and a digital video interface (DVI) for a direct digital connection with an HD set-top box or HD satellite receiver (not included). Dual ColorStream HD component-video inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) provide the ultimate picture quality from high-resolution component-video signals (as from compatible DVD players or satellite receivers). And, with direct video input selection, you can select inputs from the remote's numbered keypad instead of having to scroll through all of them. Two sets of rear A/V inputs and a set of front A/V inputs (all including S-video) get your camcorder or gaming console quickly and easily connected, and a rear A/V output--choose from fixed- or variable-level audio outputs--lets you hook up a surround receiver.

Improving upon standard interlaced signals like those from DVD player, cable box, and VCR composite-video outputs, Toshiba's CrystalScan HDSC upconverts all signals to 720p resolution. A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction helps eliminate dot crawl and color bleed and significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricately detailed scenes. CableClear DNR+ digital noise reduction optimizes poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable, further eliminating video noise ("snow") for a clean, crisp image. Cinema Mode (3:2 pulldown switch) circuitry identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

Other features include HD Window dual-tuner POP (picture-on-picture) with PIP sound for listening to two programs simultaneously, TheaterLink IR (for working your video components by pointing the remote at the TV screen, letting you hide your components), individual audio/video settings by input type, sleep and wake timers, speed tuning, SurfLock, and a host of parental controls including GameTimer (letting you set a time limit for playing video games), channel lock, and video input lock. Set it on a table using the supplied stand or mount it on the wall using optional brackets for ultimate space efficiency.

Aside from the 10-watts-per-channel stereo speaker system, the 32HL84 uses Toshiba's Sub-Bass System (SBS), which heightens the impact of low-frequency audio. Meanwhile, SRS WOW combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass (yet another low-frequency enhancement) and Focus (which clarifies voices). Two-channel simulated surround is available as well thanks to Dolby Virtual Surround.
