Surprising my husband with a tv in our bedroom for his birthday. Looking at the 2011 Toshiba 40E210 for $549. How does it compare to other brands and LCD's on the market? Pros? Cons?

This toshiba is a great TV.The picture quality on this TV blows away my existing HDTV I've had for a couple of years. Great for the price. But if you compare this to Samsung and Sony, then this TV gets blown away just because the options on the TV are limited. But the picture quality is fantastic, looks better than TVs at twice the price or more. I use it to watch netflix from my ps3, play ps3 games, and watch TV sports. All look great.

Amazon Deal: Toshiba 40E210

Whats the best audio option for me in order to get the best 7.1 hd sound? Hdmi or Fiber optic audio cable...?


I have a 2011 receiver and need to know what cable to buy for the best audio in 7.1

Hi Joe:

Either one will do, since both methods are digital (i.e., no difference in the final quality). [Note @Jordan: Electricity (cables) and light both travel at same speed.]

Since HDMI carries both the video and audio signals over the one "wire", and if that saves you running separate cables to your receiver, then that's probably the most cost-effective route.

But if the receiver you refer to is just your AM/FM/Surround 7.1-decoder/amp for audio from your HDTV, then patching via fiber-optic might be cheaper (especially if you already have fiber patch cords). But, again, if it also switches between DVD/BluRay and other video sources with HDMI and digital sound, then go with HDMI cables to save the extra audio patching.

And just so you know, the RCA "coax" connection for digital audio (usually the orange RCA jack next to the fiber jacks) yields just as good quality as the fiber optic signal. Again, it's all digital! Just use video-quality RCA/coax cable (instead of analog RCA audio patch cords) since digital audio is a higher bandwidth signal.

hope this helps,
