Toshiba mid-size TVs have good ratings on average and across all TVs Toshiba is one of the better rated manufacturers.
3D Comb Filter
This television has a 3D comb filter, which is the most commonly found comb filter on televisions that were launched more than two years ago.
Supports One Video Format
The 32L1353 has a greater number of video formats than most televisions of a comparable type and age to it. The most frequently supported video format is MKV, but this video format is not supported by this Toshiba TV. The video formats H.264 are also supported by this television.
Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption
Across all the TVs that have been available for more than two years the annual energy consumptions range from 0.22kWh to 620kWh. The Toshiba 32L1353 has a fairly low annual energy consumption (only 58 kilowatt hours) compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the 32L1353.
The average weight of TVs of this type and age is 10kg. At only 6.5 kilograms, the 32L1353 is quite light compared to most of the other TVs that were released more than two years ago.
12 Reasons Against
Very Slow Refresh Rate
The Toshiba 32L1353 has a fairly slow refresh rate (only 50 hertz) compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the 32L1353. The slowest refresh rate of mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago is 50Hz and the fastest is 1,600Hz.
If you are looking for a television with a faster refresh rate then you might want to look at the JVC LT-32C461 (£159.98) (60Hz).
Does Not Have a WiFi Connection
Most televisions that have been available for more than two years do not have a WiFi connection. The Toshiba 32L1353 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.
Like most of the other televisions of this age and type, the Toshiba 32L1353 does not support smart TV features.
There are a number of other televisions which also support smart TV features that you might want to consider including the Samsung UE40H6700 which is also higher rated.
Not 3D Compatible
The 32L1353 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 32L1353 are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE40H6470 which is also higher rated.
+9 More reasons against
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The 32L1353 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other televisions of this type and age also do not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of alternative televisions which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to look at including the UE46ES8000S, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.
Only Supports Seven Analog Signal Format Systems
The Toshiba 32L1353 has a greater number of analog signal format systems than most TVs of this age and spec. The most frequently supported analog signal format system is NTSC, but this analog signal format system is not supported by this Toshiba TV. 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 TV.
Only Analog Tuner
This TV has an Analog & Digital tuner, which is typical of many mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as it.
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
At only 12 Watts, the Toshiba 32L1353 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other TVs that were launched more than two years ago. TVs of a similar age and type to the 32L1353 have RMS rated power of between 2W and 80W, and the average RMS rated power is 18W.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
The 32L1353 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth noting that most of the other TVs of this age and type also do not feature OLED technology.
We compared all the other televisions which also feature OLED technology to this television and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) is also worth considering.
Very Slow Motion Interpolation Frequency
Across all the TVs of this type and age the motion interpolation frequencies range from 50Hz to 1,800Hz, and the average motion interpolation frequency is 260Hz. At only 100 hertz, the Toshiba 32L1353 has a fairly slow motion interpolation frequency compared to most of the other TVs of this age and type.
Only Two HDMI Ports
The 32L1353 is a two HDMI port television. Most of the other televisions of a similar type and age to the 32L1353 have between one and four HDMI ports.
The thinnest thickness of mid-size TVs that came out more than two years ago is 3.5mm, the thickest is 100mm, and the average thickness is 62mm. The 32L1353 has a quite thick thickness (88 millimeters) compared to most of the other TVs that have been available for a similar time to the 32L1353.
