Toshiba 32TL515U LED LCD 3D HDTV Review$999.00
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, things didn't get much better. The black levels and contrast are poor. It appears incapable of displaying details in highlights. The viewing angles, both side-to-side and up-and-down, are narrow. The menu interface is gawky and the remote control is terrible. The internet features are decent but have been far surpassed by other TV manufacturers. And considering the TV as an object in the home, it's not the most attractive.
Wow, that's quite a list of cons. What about things to recommend it? Well, the Toshiba 32TL515U is a bright TV, so it can compete with a sunny room much better than a plasma TV. There are also plenty of connectivity options for AV devices, local media networks, and the wider world of streaming content. Plus the built-in WiFi means one less cord to run across the room.
When you tally it up, the Toshiba 32TL515U just isn't worth it, especially when you consider that you can find competing TVs with better performance, interface, and design for the same price.
