Features

Inferior Remote Control

One customer reckoned that it did not have a good remote control. William Slater mentioned on Amazon “Only very slight problem is the remote/tv is slow to respond” in his review of the Toshiba 40L2436 but even so he still gave it a score of 80 out of 100.

40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 40" TVs currently available including because of their better review scores, the Samsung UE40F6800 (£668.39), or the TechniSat TechniLine 40 HD.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Samsung UE48J6250 (48" and higher rated), or the LG 49LF5400 (49" and higher rated).
