On average Toshiba mid-size TVs have good reviews as do all TVs manufactured by Toshiba.
Supports Smart TV
The 48L5441 supports smart TV, unlike most of the other televisions that are a comparable age to the 48L5441 which do not support smart TV.
We compared this television to all the other TVs which support smart TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung UN32H5500[plb_2589358_price] is also worth considering.
Has a Wi-Fi
Unlike most of the other TVs of this type and age which do not have a wi-Fi, the Toshiba 48L5441 has a wi-Fi.
We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a wi-Fi and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
3D Comb Filter
This television has a 3D comb filter, which is typical of many TVs of this type and age.
The average depth of mid-size TVs that were launched around the same time as the 48L5441 is 61mm, and the depths range from 3.5mm to 100mm. When compared to other TVs of a similar age and spec to the 48L5441 that we have assessed, the depth of the 48L5441 of only 28 millimeters is one of the thinnest.
If you are not concerned about having a thicker depth then you might want to look at the Toshiba 48L5453[plb_2220582_price] (28mm).
5 Reasons Against
