10 Reasons Against
Only Full HD HD Type
The display resolution of the this TV is Full HD, which is the most commonly found HD type on comparable spec televisions that have been on the market for more than two years. Full HD TVs have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
We compared this TV to all the other Full HD televisions and we think a cheaper TV such as the Panasonic TX-47AS650 (£549.90) or you might consider a higher scoring TV such as the LG 47LB730 (£609.00), and the Panasonic TX-48AS640 (£509.79) are also worth considering.
Televisions with a higher display resolution that might also be worth considering include the Samsung UE48HU7500 (4K Ultra HD and higher rated); or the 49UB820 (£420.00) (4K Ultra HD and cheaper), or the 49UB830 (£599.00) (4K Ultra HD and cheaper) both from LG.
Not 3D Compatible
The 47L6453 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other mid-size TVs that came out around the same time as the 47L6453 are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Samsung UE48H6270 (£637.39).
Very Slow Refresh Rate
Comparable spec televisions that are a similar age to the 47L6453 have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 170Hz. At only 50 hertz, the 47L6453 has a fairly slow refresh rate compared to most of the other comparable spec TVs that were released more than two years ago.
We compared this TV to all the other 50Hz refresh rate televisions and we think the 40D3453, and the 39L4353 both from Toshiba which is cheaper; or the Samsung UE46EH5000 (£780.30) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
Televisions with a faster refresh rate that might also be worth looking at include the Philips 47HFL7009 (£720.84) (60Hz).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The 47L6453 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the 47L6453 also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UE48H8000 (£699.00), or the UE40H6700 both from Samsung which also has a higher Rating is also worth considering.

The highest typical contrast ratio of the Toshiba 47L6453 is 1200:1. That's 76% less typical contrast ratio than the most common typical contrast ratio of 5000:1. The best typical contrast ratio of all mid-size TVs that came out around the same time as the 47L6453 is 5000:1 and the worst is 1100:1.
If you would prefer a TV with a higher typical contrast ratio then you might want to look at the 39L4353 (3000:1), or the 40D3453 (4000:1) both from Toshiba or the Samsung HG32EC670 (£509.00) (4000:1) which is also cheaper.
