Toshiba L5200U

CNET
28 June 2012
  • Summary: The bare-bones Toshiba L5200 series offers respectable value for the money with fine picture quality for an edge-lit LED TV.
  • Pros: The Toshiba 5200 series has good all-around performance for the price, with relatively good black levels and shadow detail and minimal uniformity issues.
  • Cons: Color accuracy is a problem, with occasional greenish midtones. The backlight can fluctuate slightly between light and dark material. Unlike some TVs at this price level, there's no 3D or Smart TV.

Toshiba 50L5200U Review

Digitaltrends
3 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Toshiba set out to provide a large, premium-quality picture backed with its recognized name in a TV with an accessible price tag. In that regard, the 50L5200U succeeds. However, a number of trade-offs were made in order to bring the price-point down and some of those have the set feeling a little cheaper than we’re used to with Toshiba.
  • Pros: Outstanding contrast and brightness, Very good color performance, Little to no light bleed, Thin profile, Reasonable price
  • Cons: Cheap-feeling stand and bezel, Dated-looking remote, No Internet connectivity, Terrible on-board control buttons
