Toshiba 40G300U Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LCD TV is $21 per inch of screen size. This is priced about average.
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 5 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has an average number of key features.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Toshiba 40G300U Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV. – Toshiba 40G300U 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 Employs blur reduction technology that increases the frame rate to 120 Hz (120 frames per second). The picture should be crisp and clear for sports and action movies.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Toshiba 40G300U Review
DLNA DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance) for some TV inputs to promote hassle-free connectivity and sharing of digital content between home electronics.
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 40G300U 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 provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Toshiba 40G300U Review
HDMI Provides 4 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
