8 Reasons Against

Inferior Sound Quality

One Toshiba 40L3451 owner who reviewed the Toshiba 40L3451 considered that it did not have good sound quality. Georgios gave the product a score of 1 stars and said in their review of this TV “Sound is poor, picture is average”.

Very Slow Refresh Rate

At only 50 hertz, the 40L3451 has a fairly slow refresh rate compared to most of the other TVs that have been on the market for more than two years. Mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 180Hz.

We compared this television to all the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs and we think because of it's better review score, the 48L3433, and the 32L6353 both from Toshiba or the Funai 46FD753P is also worth considering.

If you want a faster refresh rate then you might also want to look at the 40PFH4009 (60Hz and higher rated), or the 47PFT5209 (60Hz and higher rated) both from Philips or the JVC LT-32C461 (£179.98) (60Hz and higher rated).

Not 3D Compatible

The 40L3451 is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other TVs of a comparable spec and age to the 40L3451 are also not 3D compatible.

Televisions which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the LG 42LW579, the Samsung UN40ES6500, or the Panasonic TX-47AS802 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most TVs of a similar age and type to the 40L3451 do not have a built-in camera. The 40L3451 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the UE46ES8000, or the UN46ES8000 both from Samsung or the Philips 48PFS8109 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Overall really slow response, the guide function is really old tech, the internet browser is impossible to use due to the 'mouse' feature. Sound is poor, picture is average. I wouldn't recommend it.
