Initially good but suddenly washed out/ defective display

Initially we were happy with the product especially since we got it a very good price last Amazon Prime Day sale on July 16, 2018. We liked how we can watch and stream shows easily thru various apps like Netflix, Amazon video, Dramafever, Rakuten etc. Very lighrweight tv and just right for our needs. However to our surprise just awhile ago August 22, 2018, while streaming a drama series, the on screen display turned washed out/white screen. Turned on and off the tv several times to see if it will reboot/restart properly. Unfortunately nothing remedied it. Either you get back to that washed out screen or a totally black screen no apps at all. I have just submitted a replacement request thru Amazon customer service so we will see what happens and how fast they will address our complaint.Just an update, so we ended up being told by Amazon, to contact Best Buy and we did that by email at the same time indicating in the letter we want a replacement. Best Buy replied to us that it is outside of the return period if we want contact Toshiba directly. So, we did just that..with sheer frustration of course being tossed around. Toshiba nicely told me that they will send the techinician and I asked which company handle this techinician is it Toshiba or a third party. Ironically, they are coordinating with who else. The Geek Squad. Oh dear..back to Best Buy then. The Geek Squad guy came on the appointment date, just a few minutes late, but was nice enough. His assessment as discussed with whoever was on the other end of the line came down to an approval for a replacement. So we were asked to bring the tv over to our local Best Buy, gave us the confirmation and work numbers. Even gave us his business card and that of his manager if in case we encounter problems. For some reason it seems it is not common for them to service products sold by Best Buy throught the Amazon website.So we went to our local Best Buy. The lady was nice enough, and honest enough to say she was not familiar with an Amazon sale of a Best Buy product. So I had to tell her again the long story of how we got the tv etc etc. Finally someone helped her encode the return correctly and we had a store credit for the complete amount we paid for. However when we got the replacement tv, the price in store is slightly higher so we had to shoulder now the difference. Well, we just paid for it. So in short losing the advantage of that Prime deal sale price which did not work at all with a defective product. We do wish these three companies, Amazon, Best Buy and Toshiba iron out the way they handle requests for replacements and returns….seems initially both Amazon and Best Buy did not want to shoulder the return. If we had not insisted on availing the limited manufacturer’s warranty, we would just have been left with a useless crap of a tv.So we are now watching on this 2nd toshiba tv we got in store at our local Best Buy. Will see if this one will work much better.So beware fellow buyers, was it a good buy now?? Not really after all that ordeal to get a defective product replaced. So buyer beware!!

Flickering issues 1st day & Amazon wouldn’t replace it-Prime Day deal was too good apparently

We bought this 50 inch TV on Prime Day. The picture is a screen shot of a video I took and not very good representation. Upon setting it up the TV had flickering lines and squares in random places on the screen. This occurred no matter what app was being used. I contacted Amazon, Best Buy, and Toshiba via phone to attempt to replace the TV with the same model. Amazon stated that I could only return the TV. Best Buy stated that they would replace it, but I had to go through Amazon, and Amazon refused to replace it. I went to Best Buy locally, and they stated that they could not override Amazon’s return policy for Prime Day electronics. I contacted Toshiba to attempt to utilize the warranty, but they stated that since it was new they would not replace it and that I needed to return it to Amazon. So I had to take it apart (no biggie) and place it back inside of the box. Luckily I had the box and styrofoam inserts still. Then I had to lug it to a UPS store to send it back to Amazon for a refund. I will never buy electronics on Prime Day again. The great price was the reason that Amazon and Best Buy stated that the TV would not be replaced. Now I have to wait for either Labor Day sales or Black Friday sales to get a good deal on a TV locally. Thanks a lot Amazon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good TV but be ready for the Amazon advertisement on slought.

After the latest driver/software update, this TV is now amazing. Before you had very limited adjustments for color, contrast, and the like. Now I have full control over every setting for the TV. -1 star for the for the stupid “recommended by your apps” bar. Yes I understand that this is an “Amazon” TV, but I don’t need my TV to show me and everyone that visits what I have ordered lately. (If you install the Amazon shopping app, this is what will happen. And no, you have no option to disable it) -1 star for the Advertisements that you can not remove from the home screen. As you scroll down the home screen , you will get an advertisement after every 3rd or 4th content bar. Very disappointing.To AmazonJeff Bezo, I bought your damn TV, is really necessary to to keep blasting me with advertisement to buy more stuff from you. Can’t you just let me enjoy my new TV in peace???

wifi and ethenet malfunctioning — unusable

The first month or so I had this TV – worked very well and was integrated with Fire TV. It was very easy to use until my ethernet port stopped detecting my cable and the TV only intermittently detects my WIFI despite being next to my router.Unable to use for its intended purpose of streaming with these issues.
