Conclusion: The Toshiba 55SL417U 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
