Toshiba 55-inch L7200U video review

While most high-end smart TVs come packed with bells and whistles like motion control and tons of apps, Toshiba sets its  flagship model apart with simplicity.

Internet video fans may miss apps for Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video, but Netflix and Vudu still give you access to plenty of worthwhile content. 

Keeping with the “less is more” theme, the design of the set is also rather minimalist and attractive. With sharp edges and an almost nonexistent bezel, the TV is quite appealing to look at even when it’s not turned on.

In terms of picture quality, the L7200U is among the best we’ve seen for TVs in this price range. It required a bit of adjusting, but the colors were vivid and the blacks were deep even with high levels of ambient light. The only drawback we found was some light bleeding near the edges of the display, which became more pronounced when watching letterboxed content.

Overall, the L7200U will get you a considerable amount of bang for your buck. If your’e in the market for a new TV, be sure to check out our full review for a more detailed analysis of its strengths and weaknesses.
