Expert Reviews Are Average

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including Les Numeriques.com and erenumerique.fr this television has an overall expert rating of 70 out of 100.

Toshiba TVs Have Good Reviews

Toshiba is one of the better rated television manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Toshiba also has good ratings for its mid-size TVs.
