Picture Quality: Since the picture is, by far, the most important quality of a model, the Toshiba 32C100U 32-Inch LCD HDTV takes this aspect very seriously. By using Color Temperature Control it can either adjust the white balance setting to the best possible picture, regardless of what is being viewed or you can set it up to your own personal standards. This allows you to adjust the settings based solely on the light that is available in the room. For example, a room that is dimly lit would require a “warm” setting to deliver the ideal image for viewing. Rooms that have more light would be categorized as either “medium” or “cool” for a bluer image.
It features the Dynalight dynamic backlight control which gives all of your blacks a deeper level of color without the typical graying that comes with some sets. The setting uses advanced image processing to constantly monitor the brightness of each frame of video so that it can appropriately adjust the amount of backlight. This gives you a better transition in seamless blacks with detailed precision and the proper depth analysis.

Gaming: Are you into gaming? Then feast your eyes on this. The Game mode takes your favorites to an all-new level by reducing game control delay. Gamers can appreciate this because it means that reaction time is greatly improved which makes for a much more realistic experience. This feature can either be used with PC games using the TV’s PC input or with popular game consoles.

Native Mode: Native mode is another interesting and important feature. It restores the size of the picture back to its original size that it is scaled down from when it is scanned on traditional sets. The normal rate of reduction is typically around 3 to 5 percent. This feature puts the image back to what it is meant to be.

DVD Cinema Experience:There are also three TheaterWide modes used for displaying HDTV signals at their ideal settings and also to enhance widescreen television DVDs. And it performs 3.2 pulldown detection and reversal. This removes any redundant information that is changed when 24 frames-per-second movie programs are adapted to 30 fps video. This then gives you the most accurately framed picture as it was intended.

Photo Slide Shows:
Those that are into photography will appreciate the Photo Frame capability. This gives you the ability to turn your TV into a large digital photo gallery. Once they are loaded you simply use the TV remote to advance your selections into your own personal slide show while utilizing the benefits of a high-definition screen.

MP3 & JPEG: Some other interesting features include a MP3 audio as well as a JPEG USB port on the side. This model is also Dolby digital and DTS compatible thanks to a digital optical audio output. And those individuals who like to give everything a name can appreciate the channel labeling capability. You can use it to put the station call letters, as well as the station numbers, on the screen to denote exactly what you are watching- instead of just a number.

TV Channels: Channel browsing gives you the power to scan the last 32 channels that you watched. You can even have the last five channels displayed a number of ways including by channel, by your favorites, or even by input. All of this is controlled by a simple touch of a button.

Actual Customer Feedback:
Toshiba 32C100U is a nice TV in all aspects. The only thing I don't like about this HDTV is that the speakers are positioned in the back of the tv. But, even then the sound quality is good. The picture quality of Toshiba 32C100U is really good, and it's a nice looking tv.
Review By Val Hickman from AR United States. Found on Amazon

The Toshiba 32C100U picture quality is very good and the side viewing angle is very large. The input signals used for viewing DVD movies have been Standard Definition and High Definition, and both have been really good. The TV also performs well as a computer monitor...
