Toshiba 32DT2U
2.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 17, 2011

The Toshiba 32DT2U is an entry-level 32" LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 1366 x 768. It features a dynamic contrast ratio of 30,000:1 (static: 3,000:1) with Dynalight technology, Native and Gaming modes, and 7W stereo speakers with Dolby Digital enhancement. Additionally, the 32DT2U sports a single USB port and standard video inputs such as HDMI, VGA and Composite. The 32DT2Us Dynalight technology enhances its 3,000:1 static contrast ratio to an effective 30,000:1 by dynamically adjusting the backlight intensity as needed for deeper black levels. Its Native mode eliminates over-scanning that can commonly occur with certain content, displaying it instead in its native resolution while Gaming mode turns off all image processing for decreased controller lag. Meanwhile, the 32DT2Us USB port allows JPEG files stored on any flash storage device to be viewed directly. Features Display Size: 32" Display Resolution: 1366x768 (720p) Refresh Rate: 60Hz Backlight: CCFL Brightness: 450 cd/m2 Response Time: 8.5ms ... PROS: (1) energy efficiency is very good, doesnt draw much power (2) picture quality is clear and sharp, details are good (3) remote control is intuitive and comfortable to work with (4) screen fights glare enough for most situations, isnt normally any kind of issue ... CONS: (1) some failures within the first few months are common, an extended warranty is adviseable (2) audio output never gets very loud, sounds tinny (3) limited number of inputs available, quickly run out of ports (4) not responsive enough for gaming, always a bit of lag

Worst television ever
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The sound coming from this TV is barely audible, even at 100%. I called support, and he told be to try adjusting the treble/bass settings. Like that is really gonna help the volume :( Also, it shuts off about 10 minutes after turning on -- and, no, sleep function is not activated. I have also had trouble getting it to work reliably with my DVD player, which works fine with other televisions. Suggestion: get a TV from a different manufacturer. Any company that would allow something of this poor quality to reach market has serious issues.

TERRIBLE
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The audio level as others have stated is terrible. Since there are RCA out ports on the rear, I thought that I could attach some external speakers. That was a No GO since in the menu that option is greyed out. Never by this brand again.

Not for the older generation
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

While the picture is excellent my husband and I are in out 60's and cannot hear this TV very well at all. I don't think that the speakers in the TV are sufficant.

Terrible
3 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

After reading about "Game mode" I thought this would be perfect for my needs, as I use it for my computer monitor. Well, the picture ghosted like crazy. Whole screen would visibly brighten/dim when only part of the picture was supposed to. I could not even enable this mythical "Game mode" on my tv. Every time I did it was "Not available" in big red letters. Total waste of money if you want to use this for a computer monitor.

Great bedroom set
4 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Purchased this set a few weeks ago for my bedroom and it has worked perfectly. Used a calibration disc to tweak the picture settings and now any signal I throw at looks great. The antenna tuner works great as well.

1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

NOT A Happy Camper on this one !!!! This was going to replace a tube type Toshiba SHD TV but after setting it up and putting sound volume @ MAX 100% Sound is still LOW LOW LOW to the point some sound from broadcast you ar unable to hear !!! My old Toshiba A65 Laptop has louder sound out put then is Toshiba 32DT2U LCD TV !!! Over all I would say # 3 out of 10 !! If this is the way TOSHIBA is going to build TV I will pass on it .

Excellent TV for the price. Better than expected but not as sharp as I would have hoped using it as a monitor. 720p not as sharp as having 1080p but acceptable. Great for gaming!
