Conclusion: A first-generation Ultra HD television purchase just doesn’t make sense, no matter the manufacturer. Since their introduction, standards have been settled on and new apps have been developed that will make accessing 4K content later this year a real possibility, but mostly on next-generation models. But the L9300U lures buyers in with a price point to performance ratio that bests its competition. Is this a top-performing Ultra HD TV? No.
Pros: Attractive design, Local dimming enhances black levels, Excellent color, Great 4K content resolution, Attractive price
Cons: Compressed content looks poor without lots of processing, Images appear soft without resolution upscaler, No HDMI 2.0 connection
Toshiba L9300U 4K TV: More pixels but less picture quality
15 November 2013
Summary: Although its 3D deserves praise, overall the Toshiba L9300U is a worse performer and more expensive than its 4K competitors.
Pros: The Toshiba L9300U series 4K/Ultra High Definition LED LCD TV has accurate color and can deliver its full motion resolution without smoothing; 3D sources shown with full HD resolution and all the benefits of passive 3D; 4K resolution provides some benefit with 4K PC games; includes wireless keyboard; excellent connectivity; compatible with 4K/60 sources (HDMI 2.0) after firmware upgrade.
Cons: Exceedingly expensive and a poor value compared with 1080p TVs and many 4K TVs; poor black level, uniformity, off-angle and bright-room performance; improvements afforded by 4K resolution are minimal to nonexistent; imprecise local dimming causes some blooming and washout; sluggish, low-resolution menus and Smart TV suite.
Excerpt: Like every gadget series, television also has a particular section of high end and luxurious sets. Although a lot of brands deal in top tier models, the important part is to actually meet the calibrations successfully. Loaded with innumerable features like clod connectivity, Wi-Fi, 3D and many more, the 4K UHD L9300U series has it all to suffice as a high end TV. In order to compete with other manufacturers like Sony, the 65L9300U found its way to the market.
