My wife and I were skeptical about this TV after reading the reviews about poor audio, but we went ahead and purchased the TV and we are very glad we did. The sound is very acceptable for a TV of this size, and this model offers many features (1080p, lots of inputs and outputs compared with Samsung TVs, and LED back lighting). Compared the video on this TV with Samsung and LG LCD TVs, and this TV had the the best picture quality.
Would have given this TV 5 starts but it appears the TV remote control does not control our Toshiba Blue Ray DVD player which we also purchased when we purchased the TV. The TV remote control has dedicated buttons for controlling a DVD player, but it does not control our Toshiba DVD player and Toshiba customer service is looking into this problem for us (they also tested our combination and confirmed that they too are not able to control the Toshiba Blue Ray DVD player with the Toshiba TV remote control).
