Toshiba 40E220U review: Medium thrills, small budget

 

Back in 2008, Toshiba took a beating when its HD DVD format lost the format wars against Blu-ray. Four years later, the enforced focus on LCD has resulted in solid budget TVs like the Toshiba 32C120U and now the Toshiba 40E220U.

The Toshiba 40E220U features crisp images with a decent amount of contrast. The TV offers a good value and is one of the better units under $500. Colors are well-saturated.

The TV shows uniformity problems and some of the colors are inaccurate. Shadow detail is lacking compared with the cheaper TCL P60.

The Toshiba 40E220U is a value-for-money television offering decent contrast and bright, vivid colors.

Toshiba 40E220U

 

A 40-inch no-frills display that only does one thing. For an MSRP of $499, that's not unreasonable.

An affordable HDTV that doesn't have many flaws

Great TV; performs well.

The remote feels pretty cheap, and it's hard to get it at the right angle sometimes.

Toshiba 40E220U

 

This item was received the next day after ordering! I've been a customer of newegg for quite awhile and they continually amaze me with extremely fast shipping, great prices and when rarely needed, excellent customer service! Thanks newegg!!!!

Great newegg pricing! Looking for basic 40 inch TV to replace old 27 inch model and this fit the bill.

Good TV

 

Invest in a good sound system, as with any flat-panel tv.

Great picture, couldn't beat price for 40" 1080p ($388). Has all the inputs/outputs that I needed.

sound is a little tinny on the standard speakers.

Decent TV

 

Not disappointed with my purchase.

Decent TV for the price.

Only 2 HDMI ports. About once an hour, sometimes more, with comcast, the sound cuts out for about 3 seconds. I'm not sure where the problem is, but it never happened before with the same box, same cable on my old TV. Hard to get the right setting for...
