  • Toshiba 42H83 - Great value for your TV buck

    May 17, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great value; excellent features; usability
    Cons: remote control could be better; location of inputs

    Summary: INTRODUCTION I purchased this unit in April 2004 to replace a dead tv (Sony Trinitron 36"). BestBuy was having a special, so I was able to pick-up the unit for $1149 plus taxes. The other units that I considered included a Toshiba (flat-screen) 32", a ... read more

    Pros: Very good price, above average picture (for 3+ years)
    Cons: Hope you don't need service. Common problems are disasters.

    Summary: We bought our Toshiba 42H83 in December 2003; the picture was pretty good for 3-1/2 years then it began slowly deteriorating starting along top horizontal edge of screen. It started as a distorted margin about 1/2 inch wide across top edge of the screen ... read more

    Pros: Nice picture w/digital cable or HDTV. Good size for small to medium rooms.
    Cons: Screen height.

    Summary: This is my first projection screen TV. Just picked it up this last Monday 02/16/04 from Best Buy. I originally went in to get a 52" RCA. When I stood there, the RCA was set up on a shelf just above the 42H83 and the difference was obvious. It's hard to ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, affordable, size, no stand required, great 3D SRS sound, lots of inputs including DVI
    Cons: Visible image defects, white vertical line down the center, horizontal lines across the screen. Discoloration!

    Summary: I made a poor choice when considering the Toshiba 42h83 42 inch tv. The size and the price made it attractive. I read many horror stories of customer problems with Toshiba rptv's and didn't take it into consideration when I made my purchase. I was ... read more

  • Toshiba 42H83 - poor quality causing high failure rate

    Rated Show
    Pros: Manual, straight-forward convergence adjustment.
    Cons: Unreliable

    Summary: After less than three years, the horizontal video synchronization is gone, making the resulting picture indecipherable. I should have obtained my money back when the first one, one week after delivery, started making intermittent popping noises, ... read more

    Pros: Enjoy it when it's new, sound is great
    Cons: Four year life...not good at all

    Summary: I did a ton of research before buying this Toshiba four years ago. I thought the quality was good and that my purchase would be a good one. While we have four other TV's in house that are ten years old, this Toshiba 43H83 began to require a half hour ... read more
