Toshiba 55SL417U


The ability to stream Netflix and other Internet sources, as well as the thin profile imparted by its edge-lit LED backlight, mark the Toshiba SL417U as a midrange HDTV these days. In its favor this set demands relatively little cash for those extras,...

The Toshiba SL417U evinced relatively deep black levels in dark scenes and very good video processing. Its matte screen works well in bright rooms. Its Internet suite includes built-in Wi-Fi

The SL471U's backlight fluctuated more than usual, causing black levels to vary depending on scene content. Colors were less accurate and lacked saturation. Its screen is brighter on the edges and the picture loses fidelity from off-angle worse than...

Albeit one of the least expensive Internet-capable LED TVs available, the Toshiba SL417U lags behind most of its competitors in terms of performance.

Toshiba LED HDTV 55SL412U Review: Few Features, Great Price


At a time when most HDTVs are piling on features, the Toshiba 55SL412U takes a contrarian approach. This 55-inch, LED-backlit LCD TV doesn't support 3D, does not connect to the Internet, provides mediocre audio, and offers only a basic set of...

Big, ecofriendly LED TV at a good price ; Pretty good image quality ; Reasonably tweakable

Limited port selection ; Mediocre remote ; No Web or 3D support ; Poor audio and documentation

The Toshiba 55SL412U delivers decent image quality on a large, energy-efficient, LED-backlit LCD screen at a reasonable price. It's a good choice--if you can live without connected-TV features, 3D support, good audio, and other amenities.

Toshiba 55SL417U


Toshiba SL417U series information: Our review of the 55-inch 55SL417U from Toshiba is based on our hands-on experience with the 46-inch 46SL417U TV. The observations made do apply to other set in the SL417U series, the 42-inch 42SL417U. According to...

Excellent picture and response time ; Thin, attractive bezel ; Built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet ; Full suite of Internet apps and widgets

Very poor sound quality ; Media player slow to load content ; Slow user interface ; No backlighting in remote

The Toshiba 55SL417U looks great on paper and presents a terrific image, but its drawbacks keep it from truly fulfilling its value proposition.

Poor Quality


Cheap, great picture

main board & power supply replaced 8 weeks in to owning it. 1 year later power supply fails again & toshiba will not cover the repair

Consumer review by:

Great TV for the price


Great picture and audio. Easy to set up and install. Easy to see remote, (not a small remote)

No RCA audio out. Only digital fiber so if your receiver is more than a few years old you may need an adapter

Consumer review by:

Nice but died after 9 months


Gorgeous looking, thin and light. Nice colors. Good customer service from Toshiba

Clouding easily noticeable. Picture kept going out more and more until it would not display almost all of the time. Toshiba tried to repair it twice but failed ; They had no replacements available for me, so my only option was for a partial refund....

Bright light shows through on corners


I'm going to have to call newegg or toshiba and get this fixed or returned. For the price I paid, I want something that doesn't look like junk. I'll find out this weekend how bad it is when I have a house warming and everyone comes over and sees it....

It's big and was the right price. Very small frame and relatively light weight for what I expected a 55" tv to be. I wall hung it easily

VERY noticeable spotlighting showing through on darker video. Extremely annoying. I've never seen it before on display LED tv's but I'm guessing it's the edge lighting LEDs shighing too bright. I've tried to change all the settings to lower it but it...

Buy it if you have surround sound


Turn off clear frame or you will have ghosting. Many complaint about the Internet TV Apps. Buy a Wii, PS3 ,XBOX 360, or a bluray player. Last I checked that is a bonus ability.

One of the smallest 55" frames out there. light weight, thin and sexy picture

Slight light leaks, only noticable in very dark sceens ; Sounds like a laptop speakers but louder ; If you own a Wii you need to buy a Component Video cables, if you dont already have it, plus the video will look better anyways. 480i vs 480p

Can't beat it for the price


I picked up this set from Newegg last December using a coupon code, and the price made it irresistable. If you want a huge screen with amazing image quality and you plan on using external audio (that supports a TOSlink optical input), this set is hard...

Excellent color and picture detail. No dead pixels at all (not a one among the 2+ million!). Very lightweight (under 50 pounds without stand - about as much as a 20" CRT bedroom set). This is my third Toshiba LCD big screen and here's why... Toshiba...

Sound is only fair. Volume level is adequate, but very tinny - close to what I get on my Vizio 19" LED set. Only optical audio out, no variable level RCA jacks, so you can't just plug in a set of larger speakers. We connected the TV's TOSlink output to...
