Overall, reviews say the Toshiba 32DF46 is a good TV that's somewhat overshadowed by similar Sony televisions. The full-featured 32-inch Toshiba 32DF46 digital standard-definition TV has a flat picture tube to reduce glare. However, users and critics generally give the edge in overall picture quality to the 32-inch Sony KD-32FS170 (*est. $545). We've also seen complaints that the Toshiba TV is slow to change channels. On the other hand, the Toshiba 32DF46 has good features and includes Toshiba's StableSound, which is widely praised for its ability to even out the sound between programs and commercials. The TV has a digital tuner, which means it won't become obsolete when the analog broadcast system is turned off in Feb. 2009. It can receive HDTV signals, but will display them in standard definition (480i).
Consumer Reports, which is one of the best remaining sites for CRT TV reviews, has included the 32-inch Toshiba 32DF46 (*est. $480) in its latest round of testing. Consumer Reports is one of only a few remaining review resources for CRT TVs. Unfortunately, discussion about individual TVs is limited to just a few sentences. The standard-definition Toshiba 32DF46 has also received some user feedback at Amazon.com, Epinions and Sears.com.
Consumer Reports continues to report on CRT televisions and is currently the best source for reviews of this type of TV. This update includes tests of eight high-definition sets and 12 standard-definition models, including the Toshiba 32DF46. Along with general buying advice, there is a ratings chart. While the discussions about individual TVs are disappointingly short, the ratings are updated regularly.

Epinions is a user review site that lets owners share their opinions about products that they own. Thus far, the Toshiba 32DF46 has only received a single review, but it is generally positive. Negatives are weak sound and a need for additional inputs.

Sears is one of the growing number of retailers that allow customers to rate products that they have purchased. The Toshiba 32DF46 gets three ratings here. While one is positive, two are rather negative. Complaints are poor sound,weak color and slow channel changing.
