    I have just returned a LG Re44sz21rd ( an un repairable sound fault) when it was working I thought this was a good set but I found the fan that cooled the lamp to be loud when the tv volume was low. I am thinking of buying the TOSHIBA 46WM48P can anybody comment on how high or low the sound of their fans are
    Thanks :)

    I think you will find that they all have fan noise. The fan noise should be listed in decibels dB, in the boucher or some reviews magazine/internet list them.

    Check what dB your old LG was and compare to other makes. Anything under 25 is good going. :)

    Whobris - I owned the Toshiba 46WM48p and i can tell you that i NEVER heard the fan noise - unless i was watching it VERY late at night when everything else in the house is switched off i.e., heating etc, and even at that i would only hear it during a silent piece of film. I really wouldn't let the fan noise bother you - i was also worried prior to buying mine, as i also read a lot about the fan noise, but unless the fans faulty - i can honestly assure you that its nothing to worry about at all - Trust Me! :smashin:

    Soni you didnt hear the sound of the fan because the whole back of the tosh was stuck to the wall with grip fill. :)

    Lion cant hear his fan because he hasnt got one, it was an upgrade on the LG along with the plug...lol :hiya:

    These fans can be replaced if they get to noisey. They replace them in pc's and front projectors so a rear pro should be a problem. The RD65 fan is sometimes audioable but I do have wooden floors which amplify the noise. It doesnt botter me. My pc fan is much louder.

    The Toshiba is dead quiet. You are unaware of the fan until you get close up to the tv. In any case it is a great deal quieter than the motor on my old VCR!

    Well at least its the safest option by purchasing from Costco. Whilst checking the Sammy the other evening in Currys, i said to the sales guy its only £2,300.00 in Costco - he replied 'Costco? - i thought they only did food!' :suicide:

    Dont just buy a tv because its quiet in operation. Look at all the posts describing blurring on the Tosh. Make sure this doesnt effect you before you purchase as a fair few members have returned their sets due to this problem. You must spend time demoing good feeds and poor feeds to get a accurate overall picture of the sets performance.


    Good luck mate :thumbsup:
