The Toshiba 40L5200U activities super-thin (0.6-inch) dark bezels that provide a smooth, sleek search to it, but it lacks the piece of opera finish available on its brother, the 55TL515U ($1,999.99, 3.5 stars). The underside bezel activities a little Toshiba emblem in its middle and is somewhat broader at 0.8 inches. The best side of the slender, 1.8-inch case keeps Channel Up/Down, touch-sensitive Power, Volume Up/Down, Menu, and Input switches which are a little too painful and sensitive and too little. The distant is the most readily useful guess for adjusting image options.

The trunk of the case hosts a notably stingy choice of I/O locations. Left-facing fittings contain music analog audio inputs, three HDMI inputs, a PC audio feedback, digital and analog audio results, and a USB interface. Element video inputs, a PC (VGA) video feedback, and a coaxial TELEVISION jack face downward. The three HDMI ports are only got by you with this specific design (many HDTVs present four), and unlike the similarly charged LG 50PM9700, there’s no Ethernet interface for Internet connection or 3D assistance.
The case is reinforced with a shiny dark square stay that’s durable enough, but doesn’t rotate. The 2 7-watt down-firing speakers, pushed by Audyssey’s Premium Audio Technology, offer better-than-average result and are both noisy and full-sounding. Given, that you don’t obtain the heavy booming bass of a passionate subscription however the increase provides the noise some much-needed low end.
The distant is small at 6.9 inches and buttons are got 35 by you plus an Enter key and four navigation secrets. None of the switches are backlit. The underside of the distant has mildly sharp edges where it meets your hand. They’re not sharp enough to complete harm, but they’re not quite comfortable either.
Image options contain they common lighting, distinction, backlight, shade, color, and sharpness handles, plus color temperature and backlight get a grip on. The Samsung UN55ES6003 120Hz change helps minimize motion blur and the Film Stabilization function helps remove unstable video, but video purists may wish to keep them down. Extra options contain image size, gamma modification, element percentage, sound reduction, and Cinema Mode for watching 24 fps information. You will find five predetermined image settings including Dynamic, Standard, Movie, PC, and Preference (custom). As is generally the case, the best all-around picture was produced by Movie mode from the package.
