+3 More reasons for
When compared to other TVs of a similar type and age to the 24W1534 that we have checked, the Toshiba 24W1534's thickness of only 21 millimeters is one of the thinnest. Mid-size TVs that were released one year ago have thicknesses of between 7mm and 100mm, and the average thickness is 63mm.
If you are not concerned about having a thicker thickness then you might also want to consider the LTDN32K370 (59mm and cheaper), or the LHD32K370 (£170.00) (59mm and cheaper) both from Hisense.
Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption
The annual energy consumption of the 24W1534 of only 26 kilowatt hours is one of the lowest amongst mid-size TVs that are a comparable age to the 24W1534. The lowest annual energy consumption of TVs that are a comparable age to the 24W1534 is 26kWh, the highest is 170kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 76kWh.
16 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £23.48
In the last 61 days the 24W1534 has increased in price by £23.48.
Not Smart TV
Most of the other similar spec televisions that are a comparable age to the 24W1534 are Smart TV, however the 24W1534 is not Smart TV.
The 24W1534 does not have a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other TVs that have been around for more than a year which have a WiFi connection.
There are a number of alternative TVs which also have a WiFi connection that you might want to consider including the LHD32K370 (£170.00), or the LTDN32K370 both from Hisense which is also cheaper.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for around the same time as the 24W1534, the 24W1534 is not 3D compatible.

We compared this television to all the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs and we think the 40L1533 (£179.00), and the 32W1533 (£189.99) both from Toshiba which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a faster refresh rate then you might also want to look at the Seiki SE32HO03 (£149.99) (60Hz and cheaper), the Cello C40227 (£188.46) (60Hz and cheaper), or the JVC LT-32C461 (£149.98) (60Hz and cheaper).
