Toshiba 47L7200U LCD HDTV Review$1,899.00
Toshiba has been manufacturing electronics equipment since the early 20th century, and their parent companies since well before that. Our point is, they've got a lot of experience, not just with the technology inside the devices, but in making the outside of the devices look minimalist, clean, and efficient. We think they've done a good job achieving that with the 47L7200U.
Lately, HDTV stands have been going in one of two directions: either the metal branch support rod or your standard black hunk of plastic. That's why we're so pleased with the subtle way Toshiba made the L7200U's stand interesting. You've got your usual black rectangle, but it's got glass laid over the top of it. Might not sound like much, but it's a little kiss of class that made us blush (figuratively!). In fact, the entire Aero design is based around glass: the stand, of course, but the bezel itself is also entirely glass, ending in a swooping silver band along the bottom of the TV called the "Aero Wing."
Outside of the glass touches, the 47L7200 is a thin, plain TV. It truly does have almost no bezel, but this isn't anything new in 2012. The ports, inputs, and on-set controls are tucked away behind the TV, giving it the appearance of elegance without confounding its true purpose: televising. We think you'll like grabbing an eyeful of this TV. It's hard to argue with its attractiveness.
