Toshiba L5200U review: Toshiba L5200U

 

The Toshiba 5200 series has good all-around performance for the price, with relatively good black levels and shadow detail and minimal uniformity issues.

Color accuracy is a problem, with occasional greenish midtones. The backlight can fluctuate slightly between light and dark material. Unlike some TVs at this price level, there's no 3D or Smart TV.

The bare-bones Toshiba L5200 series offers respectable value for the money with fine picture quality for an edge-lit LED TV.

Toshiba 40L5200U

 

Accurate colors. Good viewing angles. Robust audio output

No Internet connectivity. Only three HDMI ports. Mediocre contrast ratio

Toshiba's L5200U HDTV line offers nice-looking LED-backlit screens that deliver solid color quality and a sharp HD picture, but come up short on contrast ratio and features.

Toshiba 40L5200U Review

 

The Toshiba 40L5200U makes an excellent solution as a wall-mounted, everyday watching TV and the price ain't too shabby, either.

Toshiba set out to provide a large, premium-quality picture backed with its recognized name in a TV with an accessible price tag. In that regard, the L5200U Series succeeds. However, a number of trade-offs were made in order to bring the price-point...

Toshiba 40L5200U

 

The Toshiba 40L5200U is a bare-bones 40-inch edge-lit LED HDTV that aims to give decent all-around performance without costing too much. It has good black levels but color quality is an issue as well as the high-reflectivity of the display. There is...

"Great Image, mainly used for Movies and Games, love it!"

 

When I first tried watching a live action movie I almost lost it and took the tv straight back! The soap opera effect is annoying, and it was causing pixilation whenever someone turned their head or moved there hands! However, I calmed down and did...

Great Value for Price! Image is great, low energy cost, decent sound for flat screen, 3 HDMI hook ups and one AV. Fiber Optic sound hookup. USB port. PC hook up. Love the image when watching HD movies, or playing HD games.

No WI-Fi and slow to power up. You have to turn clear rate off in order to get rid of soap opera effect and distortion when watching live action movies, but once off problem is solved.

Quality Product

 

By the time UPS had dropped the TV off the box had been opened, and chunks of Styrofoam had fallen out. Luckily the TV worked beautifully.

Great picture ; Contrast ratio is amazing ; 120hz refresh rate makes EVERYTHING look so fluid ; OSD is very intuitive and user-friendly ; Great product

No Network Connectivity?

 

If you have structured cabling in your home, this would be a great TV. But I have a room addition on my home without preinstalled cable. The wireless is a must. Very disappointing.

I have a 42" version of this unit for over a year now and am looking at this 40" for a new sun room. The display of my 42" is gorgeous and we've had absolutely no major issues and expect the same from this unit. The upgrade in speakers won't hurt...

As mentioned before, on my 42" the speakers were horrible, but see they've upgraded them on this unit. The major issue is the lack of network connection. No wireless or wired network on this TV. I thought that was what all the humorous ads were about
