Toshiba SL417U

CNET
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Albeit one of the least expensive Internet-capable LED TVs available, the Toshiba SL417U lags behind most of its competitors in terms of performance.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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 other LCDs. The Net TV Internet portal is light on content.

Toshiba 42SL417U Review

Digitaltrends
29 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Toshiba 42SL417U looks outstanding. In fact, we’d rate it as excellent, but the set’s terrible sound quality will be a deal breaker for anyone not planning on connecting some sort of external audio source. We also find it odd that the only input connections are to be found on the rear of the set, and that those connections do not include either component or composite video connections.
  • Pros: Excellent picture and response time, Thin, attractive bezel, Built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Full suite of Internet apps and widgets
  • Cons: Very poor sound quality, Media player slow to load content, Slow user interface, No backlighting in remote
