I honestly believe they do a much better job. We have only Sony and Samsung t'vs in our home and AS. Probably lucky but we like to think it's because we do our homework.
Twice in my life, I have made purchases based on Consumer Reports' review of a product. One was a Sony cordless phone, the other an OKI cell phone. Both were rated number one in their respective categories. Both were by far the worst product I've ever owned. I don't put much faith in their reviews anymore.

Don't go by Consumer Report..

We too got stung by Consumer Report...we bought a refrigerator ( for the home) by Amana, came highly recommended as the was the worst refrigerator we ever had, had to shut it off at night so we could sleep..
Needless to say we don't check with CR anymore..

The biggest problem with CR is there isn't much long term stuff done.... If they recommend something double check it through Google... There are other reviews out there... Personal ones...

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

I'm a long time Toshiba owner. I have a 32" for home and a 22" for my trailer. Both are LCD. Before them I had Toshiba tube TV's. The reason I chose this brand is because it is the brand that proved to offer the best image quality and reliability for a client of mine. I used to be a project Architect for a firm who designs the restaurants for Boston Pizza, a chain of restaurants/sports bars in Western Canada. The company tried many brands and found Toshiba to be the best. There was nothing scientific about their research, just time and experience. Works for me and I've never had any problems with any Toshiba product that I've owned.
