  • A. There is no standard way to measure contrast ratio, so any figure given is not useful for comparison. One major manufacturer actually listed "Infinite" as the contrast ratio on some models. The explanations are far too in depth to cover here, so let me give you a link to an article from CNET giving a good explanation of the issues with the contrast ratio figures that are thrown around: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10148015-1.html 1080p has roughly twice the resolution (number of pixels) as 720p. Cable isn't necessary to receive HD broadcasts. You can receive HD with cable, satellite, or an antenna. If you're on cable, check with your cable company to see what package you might need to subscribe to to receive HD programming. Both 720p and 1080p are HD resolutions, and as noted above, 1080p gives you a higher resolution.

  • A. OH btw You can get local broadcast channels in HD with an antenna the over the air picture quality is excellent all broadcasts are digital now. An indoor antenna is usually good for 25 miles more than that and you might need an outside or attic antanna .

  • A. The main difference between 720p and 1080p /1080i lies in the number of pixels that make up a 720p image and 1080p/1080i image. For 720p the number of pixels that make up the image is about 1 million (about 1 megapixel in a digital camera) and about 2 million pixels for 1080p. A 1080p image has the potential to display a lot more detail than a 720p image but at 32" screen size that's not an issue . 1080i sets are good for 40 + to 50" and above screens 720 p is fine for a 32"screen that's why there are very few 32"1080i sets picture quality is more important than 1080i vs 720p at 32 inches. with LCD /LED at 50-60 inches that's another story. 9 out of 10 people can not tell the difference from a good 1080i set and and a good 720p set under 40" at a normal viewing distance. much better to have a good 720p set than a poor 1080i set at anything under 40-50" sizes . ALL HDTV sets will accept a 1080i signal and work fine weather they are a 720p or 1080i set . High definition cable and satellite feed are usually 1080i .Over the air digital TV are usually 720p or 1080i HDTV's will re scale as needed to match the set panels native resolution. The satellite and cable companies usually output HD in 1080i from their set top boxes regardless of the origional signal . Some HD boxes recievers and DVR's can be set for different outputs 720p or 1080i to match the TV panel native resolution . Works whether the scaling is done in the set top box or the TV itself panels can only work at their native resolution usually the set top box or the TV will scale it to the panel accordingly non HD 480i upscaled to 720p or 1080p is not very clear or good on an LCD/LED set. HD is a must. For example if you have a 720p set you could set your box to 720p or 1080i .The TV will work well either way . ON the other hand If you have a 1080i or 1080p set you should always set your box to 1080i . The installers can do that for you some set them all at 1080i no problem . All the TV's now can accept a 1080i signal. Half the broadcast networks are 720p and the other half are 1080i . Cable and satellite channels are mixed also but ultimatley end up 1080p I have my sat channel guide to only display HD channels YOU will some times see older low res programs even on a high def channel the service provider scsles it up doesen't look as good though if you gety HD set and HD signal set aspect ratio in box to 16x9 output to 720p or 1080i depending on the set or just 1080i and your TV to normal picture mode mode 1080i gets de interlaced in the TV to 1080p then scaled to 720p if you have a 720p set if not it remains 1080p as panels only work with progressive signals . The only true 1080p content are Blue ray disk As for Contrast F.W.I.W. Television info .com web site measured post calibration max peak white on the almost identical Toshiba 32C110U -2011 model at 361.48 cd/m2 and black at 0.08 cd/m2 potentials arriving at static contrast measure of 4519 that makes it able to provide a very bright decent picturewith good contrast and good black detail. even in daylight if needed Post calibration static contrast ratio measure above is more useful that dynamic contrast which can be measured any number of ways to with and more likely without calibration and a base line first they arrive at very high numbers like 10,000 to 1 or 100,000 to 1 which are basically meaningless but make for good marketing. A lot of mfrs measure dynamic contrast differently and under different conditions so comparisons of dynamic contrast between brands is meaningless . at this time until and if standard procedures are used across the board. The above laboratory measurements establish a calibrated black level and a maximum calibrated white potential . Black level below 1.0 cd/m2and white above 350 cd/m2 are quite good most LCD computer monitors are about 200 maybe 250 ~cd/m2 max just to give you an idea. some tV's are only 300cd/m2 Google Cnet Toshiba 32C120U review they wrote a very through and favorable post calibration review of this set I bought one Feb 13 very good set this set is also Amzon;s best seller and they have lot's of sets. I bough this Toshiba after a lot of comparisons great set . I also have a brand new 50" Plasma .Feb 15 (different room of course) Plasma's are still the benchmark for picture quality the new ones are greatly improved. The 32" Toshiba holds up pretty well against it's big brother in the house all things considered.Consumers reports and cnet both state that the new Panasonic plasma are the best sets they have ever tested. When I move from one to the other I like both the picture 's just fine and that is saying a lot right there. . I have my review of this set posted here if you get one pay particular attention to these key settings first take it out of store mode Then turn ***off ***the energy saver setting in the preference menu you have scroll all the way to the bottom it's hidden otherwise the picture will be unpleasantly dark.,Tthen set the back light . (picture menu) 60~85 or so to suite your preference turn off dynamic contrast and dynalight they are in picture and advanced picture settings use the cnet setings or my settings as a guide . You would have spend quite a bit more to best this Toshiba . best regards

I bought this Toshiba for a second set at another store not Wall Mart , wmart did not have it available in the store Feb 13/2012 . I found it in stock for the same price at a local BB store with a proper display for comparison . The Toshiba has a very good picture IMO it is plenty good enough for a first set . Excellent performance to price value. I can tell you when you take it out of store mode (torch mode when you first get it adjust it decently or calibrate it and set the back light (very important) it has a very bright picture good color,detail and contrast . *****First and most important ****** After you exit store mode go** immediately** into the preference menu keep scrolling down down until the energy saving setting appears it's hidden and last on that menu / Turn energy saving to off /also set automatic power down to off .Like this : Menu/preference(third from left icon) /scroll down/energy saver off **auto power off** if nothing else at least do that. ******warning ***** if you leave the energy saver( default setting)on you will have a dim picture no matter what it is **only **there so they could get the energy saver govt. certification thoughtfully they provided an off setting . Even if you Just turn the energy saver and dynalight off and set the back light to 80~ or so (Dynalight and back light are in picture menu)that is the key you will get a bright vivid picture with excellent color ,detail, good blacks,bright whites I also have a brand new 50 inch Plasma I bought the same day .Plasmas even though old newly updated tech (the new panels are quite good) are still the benchmark for picture quality over LCD and LED although TOTL read expensive LCD/ LED's are right there The Toshiba compares very well with the Plasma set picture wise. I use Dish HD via HDMI , DVD's PS3 and Blue rays also . Standard def signal does not begin to show it's capabilities. You must have HD service or OTA signal to realize it's capabilities it displays std DVD's well also. You tube and Netflix are good on this fun for web surfing on A PC via the VGA in or 2nd hdmi input although a dedicated PC monitor is better for productivity . Good fun as a big bright colorful second PC monitor for web content consumption or casual gaming ,hard core gamers might want a faster panel. Compared it side by side to similar 32" Insignia,Vizio,Sony,RCA, Panasonic LG and Samsung models LCD and LED Some costing $100.00 + more all were 720p sets except one of the Insignia and Sceptre TV's . The Scepter 1080p and some of the other 32" sets I saw at w mart IMO with the exception of a 720p Sony did not have near as good color, brightness detail or contrast could be because it was in a bright store and maybe not adjusted but all in all the Toshiba seemed better quality than most. In my In my opinion The Toshiba P.Q.bested (color and detail) all except The Samsung and Sony. IMO the Toshiba and Sammy were equal or very close though. Not to say the LG and Vizeo were bad they were very good however IMO the Toshiba had a slight edge on P.Q..color and detail over all but the Sammy and Sony. The Insignia 's while good couldn't quite match the LG,Sammy,Vizeo, Sony,Panasonic or Toshiba for picture quality The insignia's were decent good features and priced well though. I have a 26" Dynex 720p that only lasted 3 yrs before the LCD inverter board failed so I have the board on order simple fix . With that in mind even though it had an OK picture I would be reluctant to buy an Insignia as they are the same mfr. as Dynex I personally would stay away from any second or third tier brand even most of the re badged formerly American brand names however YMMV. One exception IMO are the newer RCA's they have good specs decent pictures ,features and look OK the brand is licensed to On corp. ON changed the ODM mfr. recently to improve design and quality they source some parts ,some boards and some panels from Samsung. ON corp long term strategy is to position RCA once again as a first tier brand time will tell. IMO LG, Panasonic ,Sammy, Vizeo , Sony ,Sharp and Toshiba are all definitely first tier brands . the Sansui brand is owned by Panasonic and reportedly pretty reliable In perspective the picture on the Toshiba is great for what it is within it's limitations . A good buy in my opinion . A steal at at $ 228.00/$250.00 or so at factory list $359.00 I would consider the Sony Bravia . I have owned 2 Sony's picture quality and longevity were never an issue same can be said of a Toshiba and anything Panasonic I owned also. IMO the Toshiba 32C120U beat the comparable Vizeo,LG,Insignias,W house. and others and it equaled the Sammy. IMO the Sony was out front over all in color ,detail and smoothness . Keep in mind these were at store settings however I did adjust some picture settings on a few of the sets when allowed YMMV. F.W.I.W. Television info .com web site measured post calibration on the nearly identical 2011 Toshiba 32C110 model Max peak white on the Toshiba was at 361.48 cd/m2 and black at 0.08 cd/m2 potentials arriving at static contrast measure of 4519 that makes it able to provide a very bright decent picture in daylight if needed. cnet gave this set a very favorable review after comparison, laboratory calibration and evaluation they also published their recommended calibration settings . head over to cnet go look Google cnet Toshiba 32C120U review other sites rate it a good very buy as well, here are cnet calibrated settings keep in mind they adjust for a dimly lit room so for a bright room . Using cnet settings to start I screwed my back light to 80 works well good color good detail. I prefer a bright picture YMMV. The c net settings are a good starting point. Cnet calibrated settings : Picture Menu: Picture mode: Preference -- Picture settings menu: Contrast: 80 Back light: 47 note: I set mine at 80 for bright room/daylight Dynalight: On note: turned mine off for net results in daylight. Brightness: 55 Color: 47 Tint: -10 Sharpness: 0 Advanced Picture Settings sub menu: Dynamic Contrast: Off Static Gamma: 3 Color Temperature: Warm -- B Drive: -12 note: set mine at -2 -- G Drive: -2 Cinema Mode: [grayed out] Noise reduction menu: DNR: Off MPEG Noise Reduction: Off Game Mode: Off Theater Settings menu: Picture Size: Native Picture Scroll: [grayed out] Auto Aspect Ratio: Off Picture settings credit : Cnet Tosiba 32C120U review

I bought this tv 2 days ago but I think there's a problem to it. If I sit directly in front of the tv the picture looks very dark and I can't see details on dark scenes. If I change the angle, for example if I stand up and see it maybe in a 60 degree angle the picture gets clearer and I can see more details. The same happens if I watch it from the side, it looks clearer that way but not directly in front of it. Is this normal? I think it should be the opposite, that the picture looks better if I am directly in front of the tv. I also notice that the picture is too dark overall, I know about the auto brightness sensor but why they would make the picture so dark in the first place? It is just too dark and it is not normal. If someone know about this and thinks it is a defect in my tv please let me know. Thanks.
