Toshiba 55SL412U Review – 55-inch LED HDTV

 

The current population has an increasing demand for a television with few features but great quality within a reasonable price. While most manufacturers integrate high quality only with inactive features and high price, the Toshiba 55SL412U emerges as...

Toshiba 46VL758 review

 

Beautifully made, but average performing edge LED set with Resolution+

Build quality ; Standard-def performance ; Brightness and colours

Backlight inconsistency ; Limited multimedia options ; Disappointing styling

Engaging celebrated designers to style high-end TVs has become quite the thing. B&O, for example, has a long relationship with David Lewis, while Sharp called upon Toshiyuki Kita for its ground-breaking XS1 RGB LED series. Now it's Toshiba's turn, with...

Toshiba 40VL758

 

Toshiba has upped its game rather dramatically with its latest range of LED TVs. Produced in collaboration with the jolly Danes from Jacob Jensen Design, they are uniformly slim (this 40 incher is a mere 29mm deep) and well made. They're also...

Aspirational build quality, stylishly minimalist design, good motion clarity, Freeview HD

Some minor motion blur, limited online content, strident audio, not our first choice when it comes to streaming media across a network

The Toshiba 40VL758 is a beautifully built and executed flatscreen which delivers big time in terms of general picture quality and design. Its HD images are sharp and black levels sufficiently profound. While there are issues with the Edge LED...

Toshiba 40VL758 review

 

Styled by Jacob Jensen, this 40-incher is a formidable fashionista

Build quality ; Slick Jacob Jensen design ; Resolution+ picture processin

Uneven Edge LED backlight ; Limited multimedia support ; Limited web offering

Expert review by: What Hi-Fi? (whathifi.com)

Toshiba 40VL758 review

 

The Toshiba 40VL758 has been designed by Jacob Jensen and oozes style

Attractive design ; even colour balance ; competent picture with high-definition sources

Web-based content is limited ; slight motion and digital noise issues ; sounds forward

A gorgeous-looking TV but a so-so picture places it way down the pecking order

AWESOME PICTURE...sound not so much

 

I usually wait a few weeks before a review, but this one, the picture is that good. I'd already been aware of sound, but didn't realize how awful it was. I do have a set of speakers I am hoping will help but sheesh!!

Picture is amazing

Sound is pretty Tinny - kind of like a cross between a dirty needle on a 78 (for those of you who know what a 78 is... lol) and a phone line

My First LED

 

This was my first LED tv and I have to say that I am very happy with it. It has a great slim factor that I love! Compared to my other LCD I have in the house, its like night and day comparing the two. Good stuff

LED tvs have been known to have ghosting problems with heavy movement pictures, such as football and other sports. I do notice ghosting in the football when it's being thrown by a player, but I knew that was coming with going to an LED. Didn't take an...

Regret

 

This is my first Toshiba product, and it will be my last.

When working, its awesome picture. However, less than two weeks old and it is hosed up

standalone sound is not good, nor not recomended ; BIG PROBLEM: TV came shipped with bad remote control, called Toshiba support, they replaced it within 5 days ; BIGGER PROBLEM: The TV is totally hosed, it has triple ghost image and horizontal lines....
