Hate to break it to you, but Toshiba hasn't made TVs since 2014. They sell their branding rights to other companies.

The Japan-based electronics maker said that beginning in March, any new HDTVs carrying the Toshiba brand in North America won't be from Toshiba itself. Instead, Toshiba will license its name to Taiwan-based Compal Electronics for TVs in the U.S. and Canada. Toshiba says it will also license its brand name to other companies around the world—a strategy it hopes to complete by April. The one exception will be Japan, where development and sales will continue under the company's guidance.

Funny, I'm still trying to figure it out.

Let me google that, man? Maybe? Moron? Mayhaps?

Hell, I used google, and google doesn't know what it means, either.​

Well I wouldn't consider it "no name" companies because competition is a good thing. Plus I just bought the Hisense I stated above and it was a toss up for me between Hisense and a lg 4k hdr tv. Best Buy has them on the sales floor for people to see and I picked the hisense because it had better picture quality then the lg tv. Plus, I was skeptical about this company but I gave it a shot and I am pleased with it and it's in my master bedroom. Funny part is the Hisense is a lot brighter then my Samsung 4k curve Tv I have in the living room. Also, I'm using it to play video games. And 20$ more to get hdr 10 is a lot better bargain and future proof.

I have a 6 year old Toshiba 32" HDTV that is STILL going! I don't know how you judge "better picture quality" if all you are doing is including the fact that the Hisense has HDR, but that Hisense model has a lower contrast ration and lower peak brightness, which I'm sure will add to picture quality. For this class of TV, you can't go wrong with either, but as a Toshiba owner since for many years (I've owned Toshiba tube TVs as well), I have never had an issue with their quality of televisions. I'm not a big fan of no-name TVs (Vizio, Hisense, et. al...) and would prefer brands that I know will go for more than a few years. I am personally waiting a few months (no later than Super Bowl) to entertain getting a TV, but if I had to go with a Toshiba of this class right now, I could go with this, or the 55" version of the posted 50" for $429.99...personally I'm gonna wait.

With all these companies licensing out their TV to other companies, it appears quality will begin to go down hill. LG and Samsung may be the few ones that could be of better quality

You do know that those floor models are calibrated to the highest degree, right? As I said, I can afford to wait a little later and spend a tiny bit more for TV I would want. I can afford to wait and I am happy you are happy with your purchase...I just know a better deal is coming. Even at your price point and a better brand.
Have you ever heard of demo mode? It's on all TVs. I used to work at Best Buy and the same TVs that came in for customers are the same TVs put up on display.

Avoid toshiba.
Their customer service is the worst.
They stop making parts for their tvs before the 5 yr mandate.
I had a tv that needed a $70 part and I was unable to find anywhere and had to toss it. Repair shops could not find it either.
When I called customer service I could hear a dog barking in the background. Wth
Don't take the risk unless u want a disposable tv

I wish folks like you would cite when making these statements. If i have to lmgtm, I can just easily dismiss this, instead of accepting this as fact. Truth be told, I would probably get a Samsung or LG, but I am not in a hurry.
What's the "m" in "lmgtm"?

edit: nevermind...
