Toshiba 32DT1U Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LCD TV is $14 per inch of screen size. This is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 13% of new TVs.
ENERGY STAR This Toshiba TV is not ENERGY STAR qualified. Most new televisions manufactured today are ENERGY STAR.
Efficiency Not ENERGY STAR qualified and uses about 40% more electricity than any ENERGY STAR television.
Design Incorporates 1 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has less key features than average and ranks in the bottom 2% of new TV designs.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Toshiba 32DT1U Review
Resolution Equipped with 720p high-definition resolution. While this is not the highest resolution available, it may be adequate on smaller TVs or if you don’t need to connect a PC.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV. – Toshiba 32DT1U Review
LED Does not incorporate LED backlighting. LED technology is more expensive, but it saves on energy and allows the TV to be significantly thinner.
Local Dim Local dimming technology is only available on LCD televisions with LED backlighting.
Frame Rate Uses a standard 60 Hz (60 frames per second) which is adequate for many programs and movies, but you may experience slight motion blur during fast action scenes.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Toshiba 32DT1U Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This Toshiba television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi This Toshiba HDTV is not Wi-Fi capable. You cannot wirelessly connect to your home-based internet network.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Toshiba TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This Toshiba television has a thin profile with a depth of only 3.5″. Slim TVs are attractive and more suitable for wall mounting. – Toshiba 32DT1U Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers are rated at 10 watts of total output power, which is less than average. – Toshiba 32DT1U Review
HDMI Only 2 HDMI input(s) is available. One or two HDMI inputs may not be sufficient. Do you need to hook-up a cable box, video game console, DVD player, or PC?
