Excerpt: With 3D television sets becoming active in the market, the competition is quite stiff among all the 3D models. Owing to the convenience offered by passive 3D due to the absence of heavy shutter glasses has taken over the market despite of its drawbacks. The Toshiba 55TL515U is the ultimate choice for 3D viewers who wish to own a high-end, ultra-slim and high-tech TV set. Let us take a look at its features and specifications before delving into details.
Conclusion: Though its built-in Wi-Fi and passive 3D are handy and its colors are accurate, the Toshiba 55TL515U doesn’t quite reach the levels of picture quality found in our current Editors’ Choice, because of its occasional crosstalk in 3D and only decent shadow detail.
Pros: Strong color reproduction. Built-in Wi-Fi. Convenient passive 3D.
Cons: Mediocre black levels. 3D sometimes shows significant crosstalk.
Conclusion: The Toshiba 55TL515U provides a great picture and 3D in a cheap, user-friendly, super-slim package, with a nice, big screen. While this model doesn’t escape the issues often associated with edge-lit TVs, its local dimming feature does enable it to display slightly better black levels than sets with no local dimming at all. We appreciate some of Toshiba’s processing features, most notably the Autoview picture mode, which looks better than any of the set’s other presets.
Pros: Terrific, sharp picture, Better than average black level, brightness, Excellent color with adjustment, Passive 3D with four pairs of glasses included, Built-in Wi-Fi, Back-lit remote
