Hmmm, there is one of these locally to me, but I was waiting for BF to see if I could get a 3D TV for this price range. This would be for our second living room (or whatever you want to call it) that would mainly be dedicated for the kids and guests when they use the pull out couch.
Sure there are plasmas and LCDs out there for around the same price, but try to find a 50" full backlit LED 1080p TV from a reputable maker for the same or less. Bet you can't do it. Especially at the same level as the Tosh brand.
I jumped on this when I saw it last week. Two of my local stores received 6 each and were sold out in less than a week. I bought two including a display model for $480. There was a post about this deal awhile back, but there were no replies which I thought was strange.
I'm very happy with these Tvs. Picture lighting is vibrant and bright, but not overly so. Definitely punchier than a plasma but not too bright like the Vizio LEDs. It's a perfect middle road imo. There's no motion artifacts and no game lag. PQ is outstanding with 1080p source, just beautiful. 720p cable stations look remarkably good, except for those moments when standard def content is being displayed (some commercials, news clips, etc.). SD content is grainy and seems to look worse than other TVs imo. There are also complaints about a weak IR remote but not a deal breaker.
The 'smooth motion' makes everything look like a soap opera to me and makes me queesy. It just feels unnatural.
I hear it's good for sports though - I just don't watch sports.
I agree. First time I saw it on my buddy's TV I thought something was wrong with his TV. I did not like it at all and it took away from the viewing of the movie just because I was focused on it the whole time.
