Conclusion

The Toshiba 40G300U ($899 MSRP) is not a perfect TV, and not even the best LCD at the same price point (that would probably go to the Samsung LN40C630). It offers surprisingly deep black levels, but we noticed issues with color temperature consistency and motion artifacting.

Including a LAN jack that only does DLNA home theater seems a wasted opportunity, considering how many similar televisions have streaming content for services like Netflix. It makes Toshiba look well behind the times. If it can be had cheaply, few would complain about the image quality, but the overall look and feel of the interface have the feel of a second-class manufacturer. Toshiba is capable of greater things.
