Toshiba 55WX800U TV Ratings and Reviews
55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz Cinema Series 3D LED TV
- 55WX800U – 55 X 800
- 46WX800U – 46 X 800
A 1080p Full High Definition CineSpeed Display with LED Backlighting, delivers striking 3D visuals in full HD.
Savor the brilliant high-def 3D images with a 7,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for extraordinary detail.
Toshiba 55WX800U technologies bring your games and movies to life with the lPixelPure 5G, with incredible sharpness and a smoother and a more natural image.
For real 3D video, just pair the WX800 with Toshiba Active Shutter 3D glasses, and enjoy Blu-ray 3D discs, along with a growing amount of broadcast content. 3D footage is shot with two special cameras spaced apart 2.5 inches to mimic our eyes. These state-of-the-art glasses (sold separately) create a dazzling 3D effect by opening and closing lenses 120 times per second. This requires a television iwth exceptional video features, and that of course will benefit all your 2D viewing.
And while the WX800 delivers 3D video, its own elegant, ultra-thin design approaches 2D. The choice of 46-inch or 54.6-inch screen sizes make Toshiba 3D TVs perfect for building a big, beautiful home theater. Even the stand looks great.
In back, the WX800 features an Ethernet port, along with built-in 802.11a/b/g/n wireless networking. This lets you access Toshiba’s Net TV content, for streaming video from services like Netflix, social networking with Twitter and Facebook, Internet radio from Pandora, and a whole lot more, for entertainment beyond the included three dimensions.
Finally, minimizing their televisions’ impact on the planet–and your pocketbook–is a concern for Toshiba. LED backlighting is one of the most power-efficient backlight technologies, and with features like a brightness sensor to automatically adjust backlighting to suit ambient light, this HDTV is designed to run with only the power it needs. It meets the strict ENERGY STAR energy efficiency guidelines set forth by the EPA and US Department of Energy.
Dimensions: 14 x 50.5 x 33.6 inches; 71 pounds

Absolutely worth the price, go for it!, By donland
I purchased the 46″ version of the Toshiba 46WX800U 3D LED HDTV and have had no regrets. The 2D picture quality is class competitive. The 3D picture quality is also competitive and brings a extra wow factor. Eventually there will be more 3D content, until then the pickings are slim. Keep in mind you will also need to upgrade practically everything in order for 3D to work (e.g. 3d Blu-Ray player, 3D glasses, 3D content, 3D TV, 3D HDMI cable.)
Amazon remains the best overall place for TV purchases (even against Costco, as long as you don’t have to pay sales tax.) Keep an eye on the price, however. Amazon offers a 14-day price guarantee with many TV’s, even refunding any price drop found on their own website. Just 10 days after I purchased this TV, Amazon dropped the price by $150. I called them up, they confirmed it, two days later my account was credited $150. Can’t beat that!

WOW!! TV is awesome!, By Zooie
Recieved the 55WX800U 2 days ago and it is amazing. Setup was a breeze.I had a 61″ DLP 1080p set and after turning this new set on, wow, what I was missing on the DLP. The picture is simply stunning, perfect on all source material. Colors vibrant, detail amazing. On HD movies the picture is so perfect, yes a little bit of the “Soap Opera Effect”, but I love it and my family also. Direct TV is amazing, it automatically configured for 3d channels (TV is not supported on DirectTV site, WHY?? it works perfectly). Glasses worked perfectly out of box and DirectTV 3d is amazing. Played 2-3d blurays, Tangled and Tron on my PS3, WOW! Kids and I were amazed at the depth and beauty of it. NO coudiness issues at all, on anything, nothing – perfect – tried with total darkness in room after 10pm, could not see any cloudiness. Internet works perfectly, updated software to 42 version, great. 3d glasses are “Real 3D” and fit easily over glasses. My kids heads are small, the glasses come with headbands and utilizing those, glasses were fine. Played Avatar this morning and it seemed like a new movie, simply a stunner.
Xbox 360 is simply amazing also, a new crispness to all games, especially Black Ops.
Also tried regular dvd’s, best upconvert to 1080p I have ever seen.

Toshiba 46″ 1080p 3D, Cinema, HDTV, By DebFed
I love my TV it’s the best and so is the price. I guess I’m one of the fortunate ones because I do not see any cloudiness on the screen when it is dark. I love the 3D movies, access to the internet, HDTV, and most of all, I love how thin it is. BEAUTIFUL~! Before I bought it I was concerned about the cloudiness mentioned in some of the reviews but since Amazon offers 30 day return and for the price, I figured I’d try it and boy am I glad I did. I’ve looked all over the internet to see if anyone else could beat their price and no one else comes near it. Yahoo! I’m very pleased. Customer service is great too.

great picture but internet connection is iffy, By Art F. Christofersen
First the good stuff. The picture is first rate. The connections are handy and fairly easy to figure out. Connecting a laptop computer is a snap (plug and play for Macbooks) and matching the picture to what you see on the computer screen is fairly easy. Not to mention it starts out pretty darn close to perfect. The tuner for off the air (antenna) signals works well and seems more sensitive than most. The remote works ok and does connect to other brands. In my case it works just fine with various models of the VISIO blue ray players.
Now the not so good. The sound is ok but the built in speakers have little or no bass output.Also there is no analog sound out so headphones or older amplifiers can’t be connected. Some of the menus are a bit buried. Not awful but not at your fingertips either.
And finally the bad. Don’t plan on connecting to the internet with this TV if you use Apple computers and connect via AT&T. I am pretty tech savvy and ,while I did manage to connect one time via ethernet, wireless is a totally lost cause. Tech support does speak English as a first language ( huge plus in my opinion) And they also made big points with me by actually admitting they couldn’t figure out how to get me connected instead of putting up a smokescreen of BS. But the fact still remains they could not get me connected. Nor incidentally could at&t although the odds that something might be done there are much higher as AT&T’s support system is … not the best. My advice is to do as I did and pick up a blue ray player with internet support. Three different players connected through my airport wireless base station pretty much instantly and the picture from blue ray disks is better than even the off air HD.

Great Picture + Great Price = Great TV, By Readerly (USA)

Be Warned!!!, By Toshibanomore
Be warned that Toshiba seems to build their TVs to last just over a year now. I’ve had numerous sound problems with mine and now after the warranty expires a row of stuck pixel (fairly common problem it seems). Toshiba did attempt to fix the problems while under warranty, repairing the Main Board (2X) and Sound Board along with replacing the speakers, but this never fixed the sound problem (distortion of conversations at low to mid volume). Now that it’s just over a year old, a two foot long row of dead pixels! All this from a TV that is used maybe once every two weeks.

Breathtaking 3D and HD performance for a Fantastic price!, By deadpanwalking (Anaheim, CA)
I was in the market to buy a new hdtv to replace my 40 inch Sony KDL-40V2500, when – upon doing some research – came across this great deal from Amazon that includes this set plus 2 3D glasses and a 3D blu ray player for $1500. I jumped at the deal, and after a week of use I am pretty happy I did. I don’t get HD cable so this review will not be based on that, but I do own an Xbox 360 and a PS3, both of which come out looking absolutely beautiful. In addition to this, I have also connected my PC via dvi-to-hdmi, and the results are like-wise very pleasing to me. I should state now that every visual device in my home suffers from slight to almost severe backlight bleed, so the backlight bleed on this set doesn’t really bother me so much. I’ve tried my darndest to look for it during darker scenes of blu-ray movies, and I simply cannot be made to feel distracted by it. Even during pitch black (relatively speaking of course) loading screens the led lights are visible but again I cannot be made to be bothered by them. Upon popping in my second movie I thought I had an excessive back light problem before I realized I was watching Star Trek and all the crazy lights were the result of excessive lens flare….

A great deal!, By Stefano E.
I really like this television. The look is damn cool and it is extremely thin if compared to similar models. Connectivity is wide and connections are easily reachable. Picture quality is very good and I am not complaining about built-it speakers. The bundled net-apps are nice, especially the YouTube and Pandora ones. DLNA is easy to set-up but the supported formats are not what you would expect today (no flash/XviD/DivX). Plan to buy a PS3 to have a real media renderer. There are tons of settings for video and audio, which I didn’t explore to the fullest, but I believe they should satisfy the vast majority of users.
As mentioned in other reviews, there is a clouding effect, particularly visible in almost all black scenes and a dark room, but I didn’t find it that annoying, since its occurrence is limited to few scenes. For the price offered is it an amazing deal!
