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.

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...
