Toshiba 42TL515U

 

Toshiba's smart TV comes with 3D capabilities and some internet apps. The manufacturer doesn't have an app store, and the TV doesn't have a full web browser, so you'll only be able to access the original apps. The TV remote is made for TV use, not...

This Toshiba TV offers 3D capabilities along with some internet apps, such as Netflix

The Toshiba 42TL515U doesn't have an app store, full browsing capabilities or an internet remote

With this internet TV, you can watch TV, use the 3D capabilities to watch movies and access internet apps.

42TL515U Now Awful

 

Don't bother with smart TVs. Just stick with simple sets and hook up a $94 Roku 3 (or whatever the latest model is).

Was a great set for 2 years

Stuff started deteriorating, gradually, like an organic product going rotten. First the Yahoo widgets stopped working, then a couple of the other smart TV widgets, then all of NET TV except Netflix. We were able to live with this as Netflix was all we...

Toshiba 42TL515U

 

Bought on sale at x-mas last year for 700.

Picture is excellent. 3D impressive although we do not use it very often. 3d glasses from the movies work with this TV (just in case you forgot to put it in the return bin) ; TV shipped quickly

TV does not turn on immediately when the power button is pressed-5-10 seconds til picture comes on. Not a big deal to us

cheap price doesnt justify the problems

 

nice picture,3D, pretty cheap price

after nearly 3 months of ownership the tv will freeze when trying to use any of the applications like netflix or webtv ; the tv also turns itself on and off every 5-7 mins
