10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Toshiba 40L1543 does not have a wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other mid-size TVs that are a comparable age to the 40L1543 also do not have a wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative TVs which also have a wi-Fi including the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], or the LG 42LB670[plb_2232215_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Smart TV

The Toshiba 40L1543 does not support smart TV. Most of the other televisions of this spec and age also do not support smart TV.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a smart TV and we think the LG 42LB670[plb_2232215_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of only 50 hertz, the Toshiba 40L1543 has a quite slow high frequency rate compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years. The high frequency rates of comparable spec TVs that were launched around the same time as the 40L1543 range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 180Hz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including the Samsung UE46EH5000[plb_1540970_price] which has better reviews.

If this TV high frequency rate is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Cello C32E69[plb_2795154_price] (60Hz) which is also higher rated.

Not 3D

Like most of the other TVs of a comparable age and spec to the 40L1543, the 40L1543 is not 3D.

If you would prefer a television that is 3D then you might also want to consider the 42LW579[pl_326450_price], or the 47LB670[pl_2232214_price] both from LG which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most mid-size TVs that have been on the market for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The 40L1543 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also have a built-in camera including the UE46ES8000S[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.
