We calculated the average reviews for all Toshiba televisions and also specifically for Toshiba mid-size TVs and found that in both cases Toshiba had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

10 Reasons Against

Inferior Sound Quality

One Toshiba 40L3451 reviewer who reviewed it considered that it did not have good sound quality. Georgios wrote three years ago “Sound is poor, picture is average” in their review.

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

Mid-size TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 40L3451 have high frequency rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz. At only 50 hertz, the 40L3451 has a quite slow high frequency rate compared to most of the other TVs of a similar age and type to the 40L3451.

Other 50Hz refresh rate TVs currently available which you might want to look at include the 48L3433[pl_2161338_price], or the 32D1334B[pl_1494903_price] both from Toshiba or the Samsung UE40C5100[plb_1661045_price] which has better reviews.

If this television high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the 32PHH4309/88[pl_2227319_price] (60Hz), or the 40PFT4009[pl_2442832_price] (60Hz) both from Philips or the JVC LT-32C461[plb_3406110_price] (60Hz) which also has a higher rating.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a built-in camera and we think the TX-L47WTW60[pl_1974164_price], or the TX-47ASW804[pl_2382069_price] both from Panasonic or the Samsung UE46ES8000S[plb_1355897_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Overall really slow response, the guide function is really old tech, the internet browser is impossible to use due to the 'mouse' feature. Sound is poor, picture is average. I wouldn't recommend it.
