Chart Edit

has a WiFi connection

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

This television supports a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is typical of many televisions of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Supports Seven Analog Signal Format Systems

The 40D3553 has a greater number of analog signal format systems than most comparable spec TVs that have been available for around the same time as it. The most frequently supported analog signal format system is PAL, but this analog signal format system is not supported by this television. The analog signal format systems NTSC 4.43, PAL BG, PAL DK, PAL I, SECAM B/G, SECAM D/K and SECAM L are also supported by this Toshiba TV.

Chart Edit

1080p Video Mode

This TV supports a 1080p video mode, which is typical of many televisions of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Features Two Video Apps

The number of video apps featured on the 40D3553 is more than most mid-size TVs that have been available for around the same time as it. This Toshiba television features a YouTube video app, which is the most frequently featured video app featured on TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 40D3553. The video app "NetFlix" is also featured on this television.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

The thicknesses of mid-size TVs that were released more than a year ago range from 7mm to 100mm. With a thickness of only 27 millimeters, the Toshiba 40D3553 has a quite thin thickness compared to most of the other similar spec TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 40D3553.

If you would consider a TV with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the Toshiba 40L1533 (£165.00) (27mm).

4 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Most televisions that were released around the same time as the 40D3553 are not 3D compatible. The Toshiba 40D3553 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 40D3553 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other mid-size TVs that were released more than a year ago also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Refresh Rate

With a refresh rate of only 50 hertz, the Toshiba 40D3553's refresh rate is one of the slowest amongst televisions of this spec and age. The slowest refresh rate of mid-size TVs that were released one year ago is 50Hz, the fastest is 800Hz, and the average refresh rate is 110Hz.

We compared all the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Toshiba 48L3553 is also worth considering.

If this TV refresh rate is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Hisense LTDN40D36 (£249.00) (100Hz and higher rated).

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 40D3553 does not feature OLED technology, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been around for more than a year also do not feature OLED technology.

We think you might also be interested in other televisions which also feature OLED technology including the Samsung UN50J6200.
