Toshiba 50L5200U


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 50L5200U

Overall, the Toshiba 50L5200U is a mediocre television.

Fantastic TV

Best TV Ever!


I love this TV! I never knew a picture could be this clear. The picture is so clear it almost appears as if you can touch the actors. I only wish I had purchased a larger screen. The sound is excellent even without any additional surround sound...
