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.

Accurate colors. Good viewing angles. Robust audio output

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

The Toshiba 50L5200U is an attractive 50-inch HDTV that delivers accurate colors and solid viewing angles, but it doesn’t offer much in the way of features compared with other similarly priced models. If you’re looking for an affordable, full-featured...

Toshiba 50L5200U Review


Models in Toshiba L5200U series

Outstanding contrast and brightness ; Very good color performance ; Little to no light bleed ; Thin profile ; Reasonable price

Cheap-feeling stand and bezel ; Dated-looking remote ; No Internet connectivity ; Terrible on-board control buttons

The Toshiba 50L5200U makes an excellent solution as a wall-mounted, everyday watching TV and the price ain’t too shabby, either.

Toshiba 50L5200U


This model just can't compare to Toshiba's L7200U flagship series.

Overall, the Toshiba 50L5200U is a mediocre television.

The only con related with this TV is it makes all of my other sets look really crummy. After watching programs on this Toshiba, even the picture on my 32" LCD, whose picture I thought was top notch, pales by comparison

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...
