Toshiba 47TL515U

 

Toshiba TL515U series information: The Toshiba 47TL515U review is based on our experiences with the 55-inch 55TL515U television. The observations made here apply to the other sets in the TL515U series. These include the 32-inch 32TL515U and the 42-inch...

Terrific, sharp picture ; Better than average black level, brightness ; Excellent color with adjustment ; Passive 3D with four pairs of glasses included ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Back-lit remote

Significant light bleeding around edges ; Poor onboard sound ; Finicky contrast

The Toshiba 47TL515U provides a great picture and 3D in a cheap, user-friendly, super-slim package, with a nice, big screen.

Toshiba 32TL515U

 

From the moment we plugged in the Toshiba 32TL515U ($999 MSRP), we had such a difficult time we'd gone so far as to schedule the TV for a replacement, assuming it was broken. As it turns out, this is just how poorly the TV operates. It may have the...

The Toshiba 32TL515U is part of a high-end series, yet has precious little to recommend it. First, it takes more than 30 seconds to start up, so we originally thought it was broken and had already started the return process. Once it was up and running,...

Toshiba 15LV505 LCD TV Review

 

The most important feature that separates Toshiba 15LV505 from other LCD televisions is that it has a built-in DVD player in it. There are very few televisions available in the market that have a built-in DVD player.

Toshiba 15LV505

 

Toshiba may have their reasons for choosing not to include an HDMI connection on this kitchen TV, but many people are now using HDMI cables and the ColorStream connection may deter them from purchasing this TV/DVD player. The digital audio coaxial...

The Toshiba 15LV505 LCD screen has a 5-millisecond response time

It has a bulky design and there is no HDMI connection

The Toshiba 15LV505 is a well-made kitchen TV with a lot to offer.

Toshiba 55Tl515U

 

While the Toshiba 55TL515U isn't the best LED TV on our lineup, it still competes well with some of the higher-end models. Toshiba has improved on the display significantly from earlier LED models, but the company hasn't quite made it to the same level...

Local dimming and 3D capabilities keep this TV in the race with the top-rated models

Drawbacks in customer support and the lack of a few connectors hold this set back

If you're willing to scrimp on connectors and some customer-service options, the Toshiba 55TL515U will serve your needs adequately.

With most LED-LCD TVs we recommend turning off the 240Hz anti-judder control feature due to unwelcome consequences. However, the judder (jerky effects as images move across the screen) on the TL515 are pretty bad and warrant the feature – called Clear...
