  • 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.

Toshiba 55ZL2

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
