The most commonly supported analog signal format system is PAL, but this analog signal format system is not supported by this TV.

If you would consider a television with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the Philips 32PHH4100[plb_2783161_price] (77mm), or the Toshiba 32W1533[plb_2698681_price] (25mm) which is also cheaper.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Smart TV Features
Most of the other mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the 32E2543 support smart TV features, however the Toshiba 32E2543 does not support smart TV features.
We compared this television to all the other TVs with a smart TV features and we think the Haier LE32K5000[plb_2831091_price], or the Samsung UE32J4510[plb_3059438_price]; or the LG 32LF580[plb_2822606_price] are also worth considering.
Does Not Have a WiFi Connection
The Toshiba 32E2543 does not have a WiFi connection. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for more than a year also do not have a WiFi connection.
Other televisions which also have a WiFi connection that you might also want to look at include the LG 32LF580[plb_2822606_price]; or the Haier LE32K5000[plb_2831091_price], or the Samsung UE32J4510[plb_3059438_price].
Not 3D Compatible
Most comparable spec TVs that have been around for more than a year are not 3D compatible. The Toshiba 32E2543 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.
If you want a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the LG 42LF652[plb_2835500_price], or the Sony KDL-43W807[plb_2803096_price] which also has a higher rating.

We compared all the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs to this TV and we think cheaper TVs such as the Toshiba 32W1533[plb_2698681_price] is also worth considering.
TVs with a faster refresh rate that might be worth looking at include the Haier LE32K5000[plb_2831091_price] (60Hz and cheaper) or the LG 32LF580[plb_2822606_price] (60Hz and higher rated).

Like most of the other TVs of a similar age and spec to the 32E2543, the Toshiba 32E2543 does not feature OLED technology.
We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung UE32J4500[plb_3059439_price] is also worth considering.
