10 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

A few Toshiba 40L3453 owners who reviewed the Toshiba 40L3453 mentioned that it was not good quality. In November last year Gwenantraws said “Can't fault it, picture quality is top notch” in their review of this TV. Mrs J Bryant said on Amazon “The quality isn't the same as a Sony” in her Toshiba 40L3453 review.

Very Slow Refresh Rate

At only 50 hertz, the Toshiba 40L3453 has a fairly slow refresh rate compared to most of the other TVs of a comparable age and spec to the 40L3453. Similar spec televisions that were released around the same time as the 40L3453 have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 180Hz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 50Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including cheaper TVs such as the Samsung UE40EH5000[plb_1532379_price], or the Toshiba 32L1343[plb_1608684_price].

If you are looking for a TV with a faster refresh rate then you might want to look at the Philips 32PHT4509[plb_2227289_price] (60Hz), or the Cello C32E69[plb_2795154_price] (60Hz) which is also higher rated.
