Toshiba 55ZL2 glasses-free 3D TV

Channel5
4 October 2014
  • Summary: The Toshiba 55ZL2 is a glorious television and a glimpse into the future of the kind of standard to expect from glasses-free 3D TVs in future, but at £7k it’s just too pricey to be good value for it. Not that it stops us wanting one of our own.

Toshiba 55ZL2 4K LCD 3D Display

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
19 July 2012
  • Summary: This is a well built, nicely designed display. It has a top notch panel, with less than mediocre backlight and a mediocre remote. Although its claim to fame is 3D without glasses, I was far more impressed with its 4K capabilities (particularly with a 4K source), and with its CMS and video processing. This would be one ideal LED display if Toshiba improved backlight issues (better diffusion, or a 512 zone local dimming option like in the ZL1).

  • Summary: The basics The Toshiba 55ZL2 is a 55-inch full high definition LCD TV capable of displaying 3D pictures without requiring the viewer wearing 3D glasses. It uses a Quad full HD resolution display of 3840 x 2160. The Toshiba 55ZL2 also features built-in Freeview HD, built-in Wi-Fi, Smart TV features to use YouTube, Facebook, and other apps, and four HDMI ports, one SCART, 1 PC input, two USB slots and DLNA compatibility.
  • Pros: At times 2D images are of such high quality that it’s easy to forget that you’re actually watching a television. The images displayed on the Toshiba 55ZL2 are some of the most lush you’ll see anywhere. The Toshiba 55ZL2 excels at making the most of bright colours, making it a great TV for playing video games. 3D viewing is pretty impressive too. Without glasses the effect feels a lot more natural. The Toshiba 55ZL2 uses head-tracking technology to tell it how many peo...
  • Cons: There are times when some objects in the distance can appear out of focus during the 3D experience, and you will have to keep your head still to truly appreciate the 3D effect. Sitting still is the price to pay for the privilege of not having to wear glasses. The £7k price tag is enough to stop anyone but the most well-heeled even contemplate purchasing the Toshiba 55ZL2. The Toshiba 55ZL2 is a very good glasses-free 3D TV, but that’s a lot of cash to pay for the plea...

  • Conclusion: The price is a considerable obstacle, but it's hard not to be impressed by Tosh's 55in spec-free 3D TV. Its 3840x2160 screen looks spectacular with both upscaled Blu-ray and native-res images - if you can find any. The 3D works… so long as you don't move.

What Hi-Fi?
6 April 2012
  • Conclusion: A 4K TV and the world's first glasses-free 3D TV, but it comes at a steep price
  • Pros: Four times HD resolution and glasses-free 3D, outstanding black levels and detail for a screen of this type, balanced, enjoyable pictures from all sources bar standard-def TV
  • Cons: Glasses-free 3D rather compromised, total lack of 3840 x 2160 content, nasty sound, limited Smart TV functionality. Oh, and the price

Toshiba 55ZL2 eyes-on

Pocket Lint
1 September 2011
  • Excerpt: There's no doubt that Toshiba is fully committed to the glasses-free 3D revolution. Following the example set by its Qosmio spec-free laptop , the Japanese company used the IFA expo to announce the world’s first large-screen glasses-free 3D TV - the 55ZL2. Back in February Pocket-lint got eyes on with a prototype model of what would essentially become the 55ZL2, although that model had a straight-on only 3D action, meaning that it wouldn't be all that useful in your...
