Supports Smart TV
Unlike most of the other TVs that have been on the market for more than two years which do not support smart TV, the Toshiba 40L5441 supports smart TV.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative televisions which support smart TV currently available including the Sony KDL-42W706[plb_2143945_price], or the Samsung UE40H6410[plb_2236819_price] which is cheaper.
We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a smart TV and we think the Philips 47PFL3188[plb_1623202_price] is also worth considering.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 200Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including because of it's better review score, the UE40B8000[pl_518149_price], the UE40H6200[pl_2232894_price], or the UE40C7000[pl_1661050_price] all from Samsung.
