Just left a buddies house that got a new 48″ Toshiba flat panel TV. Many potential buyers would be concerned about the outside dimensions of a TV like this if they planned to place it in furniture or other constrained areas. If you fall into that category, you’ll just have to take your chances with Toshiba, because all their dimensions are only “Approximate”.
The logic behind Toshiba’s inability to accurately state dimensions of LCD TV’s they make escapes me. I suspect there are attorney’s involved. At any rate, they in no way produced a product worthy of the Gigawidget badge in this case. Try again Toshiba, dimensions should have been the easy part after you made the TV.
