    Hi,

    Just wondering if anbody has pre-ordered the above LCD.

    Do we think that Tosh will deliver in Sept?
    Are the specs correct? including the picture on unbeatable
    Have there been any reviews on the '56' yet?
    Does anybody know if the same panel and electronics will be used in the '58'?

    Your thoughts please

    I must admit that I am tempted, although I need to get my garage conversion sorted out first.

    I will probably hang on and see if there is any discounting, but this is my screen of choice at this particular moment in time.

    A few more online reviews would be helpful though . . .

    I'm done with hanging on. I've been putting it off for the next lot of updates. All i'm now waiting for is a review.

    No but I've a 37WL56 and I've had a few problems with it, so I'd wait a while if I were you before you buy. :nono:

    Dr Watson,

    Well, I've posted quite a bit about this set on other threads but to recap, it has a strange buzz, a very loud wife bothering type of buzz, a very I can hear that buzz again...catch the drift?

    I've spoken to Toshiba about it and they were kind enough to send out a repairman, remember that this is only 2 weeks old this coming Friday. He has looked at it and pulled it apart. The set is very well made inside. It turns out that one of the main boards has a problem with a transformer which is mounted on it. So he has ordered another board to replace it, which I'm not too happy about as its a new set.

    What I will say is the panel picture quality is out of this world, it really is oneof the best out there. The only other niggle is that it doesn't display non-anamorphic dvds in their correct ratio, leaving me with a shed load of dvds I can't watch, the engineer was suprised at this as were Toshiba. I don't know where you are based but I'm fine about demoin' the set :lesson: :clap: :thumbsup:
