Great Picture and Good Sound
I needed a small Tv, and was pleasantly surprised by this 23" Toshiba. Great picture and good sound accompanied by lots of input / output options - including 3 HDMI ports, Digital Audio Out, Digital Audio In, PC Audio In, Component video and PC in. Setup and programming was easy, though I did have to consult the online users-guide to answer a few questions.
Amazingly deep blacks, but beleaguered by crummy color
It's frustrating that such spectacular contrast on an affordable TV should go to waste like this. The L1350U (MSRP $499.99) renders some truly beautiful blacks, but its colors just can't keep up. How sad! Like a magnificent race horse with a fear of circles... But in practical terms, regular content appeared washed out and unrealistic, and even Blu-ray discs lacked vibrancy of color. What a waste!
Don't be wooed by this TV's pretty price tag.
This is great tv all around
I bought this tv to use with a Playstation 3 mostly but also as a regular tv and secondary monitor for my Macbook Pro. The 240Hz really made difference in gaming, movement is much realistic than a 60Hz tv. This tv also works great as a computer monitor. Being a web developer and designer, I am very picky about my display and this works great for graphics and coding. This is my fourth Toshiba tv in about 20 years, they all still work great and I have never had a problem with them.
For the price, great picture quality
The Toshiba L2300U series may be entry-level, but its picture quality is not. It seems like Toshiba has taken pains to avoid trapping consumers in a feature fight: "This one is 3D but not smart, this one is both, this one feeds your dog, this one is 3D but doesn't come in 1080p," etc. The L2300U doesn't do anything extra except play back USB content. Its on-board software is basic, and cheap. The design? Also cheap.
Great picture and pretty good sound too
Setup is fairly easy, a alpha/numeric keyboard automatically pops up when needed to make entering network names and passwords easy. The TV menus are easy to use and are accessed using one button on the remote, setup. The remote is easy to use also, similar to a DirecTv remote. In fact, I setup the Toshiba 'IR Blaster' to control my DirecTv box rather than using two remotes.
The picture looks acceptable, but the sound is top-notch
Toshiba's L4300U is a tough pill to swallow. It offers a design that some will find very appealing, but its smart platform and menu interface are downright frustrating. Fortunately, it has decent picture quality. That's like a sandwich with great bread, but rotten meat.
At least the L4300U isn't too expensive. A 39-inch model retails for $699, but Toshiba sells it for $519.
Excellent addition to the man cave
Needless to say, I'm very happy with my purchase. Everybody that has seen the TV is equally impressed with the overall picture quality. They immediately assume this TV costs twice what it does. This bright LED backlit TV works great in the "cave" and has minimal glare as a result of the windows in the room. In fact, it's so bright that some may find themselves turning down the backlight at night time.
The remote has a weak signal and must be pointed directly at the TV's IR sensor.
We were impressed with the Toshiba 50L2200U (MSRP $899). This Toshiba produces good colors, has deep blacks, and gets modestly bright. It's also easy on the power consumption, which is a bonus since this TV's menu interface isn't so easy on the eyes. Aside from a few aesthetic details, the 50L2200U didn't give us much to complain about. There is the nagging issue of an unresponsive remote, but that was our biggest complaint with this TV.
Great TV for the price!
The thing that attracted me to this tv is the fact that it has 3 HDMI inputs while most tv's in this range only offer 2. I really don't understand the thinking that goes behind selling higher end TV's with more HDMI connections. If the tv has internet connectivity built in, that is one LESS HDMI connection that is required, but if you are like me and want to add a streaming network player, you need that extra HDMI connection if you already are using the other 2 for BluRay and satellite...
Good smoothing effects from Clear Scan 240 feature
The 46L5200 is a fairly barebones model from Toshiba with 120Hz processing and a standard black framing bezel. It's a nice looking TV with similar features to the 417 model from last year. LED backlighting is edge-lit. It's an economic model with pretty good black levels and brightness for an LED/LCD.
Tiny viewing angle
The 50L5200U is an affordable, no-frills television from Toshiba thatâ??s available at a surprisingly low MSRP of $1099. We recently reviewed Toshibaâ??s flagship series for this year, the L7200U, and it proved to be a very high-quality smart TV for the comparably low price it retails for. In that regard, we were very excited to see if the mid-range L5200U series would match that same quality.
Very deep black level for an LCD
When we reviewed Toshiba's flagship, the L7200U, we found a cheaply priced HDTV that was of very high quality and usability. The E220U continues that tradition. It may be a "dumb," non-3D version of Toshiba's fancier models, but the quality we saw on their flagship has trickled down and informed its core performance. We'd say a 40-inch TV of this caliber, for an MSRP of $499, is a pretty solid deal.
All in all, I'm very impressed with this set from Toshiba. I never would have purchased one of their sets if I hadn't gotten such a good deal on it, but now I've opened my mind to their TVs. They certainly did a good job with this one! Particularly around the picture quality and over-the-air HDTV reception.
Quite impressive for this price range.
8ms or less pixel response in all modes
The Toshiba 46SL412U is a high-definition 1080p LED television. The 46 inch sceen size is an upgrade from the Toshiba 40SL412U, and a new ClearFrame 120Hz mode is enabled that refreshes the screen quickly for sharp fast-moving subjects, rendering sports and action sequences without any blur.
Pretty good image quality
For people who aren't interested in a connected TV, or who aren't fussy about audio quality (or a great remote), the Toshiba 55SL412U delivers decent image quality on a roomy, ecofriendly screen and it's certainly easier on the wallet than more-polished, full-featured competitors are.
Price is not everything.
Overall this TV is not a bad TV. Maybe I am just picky, but when you spend money you want a good product. This TV did not meet my expectations for the price it costs. Maybe it is because they purchased the rights of the technology through LG but did not build the TV the same. I don't know. And the poor backlighting problems I was experiencing with this TV was just too much.
So I returned the TV and purchased the more expensive LG 55LW6500. What a difference 400 dollars makes!
