What to Expect from Toshiba TVs
If you’re a college student looking for a budget-friendly, yet reliable TV, or maybe a family with young kids on a budget, Toshiba televisions are worth a second look. Toshiba is a middle of the road brand that will not break the bank. On the other hand, you will not get the bells and whistles that come with higher-end televisions. Toshiba televisions are offered in a variety of sizes and capabilities to meet consumers’ specific needs. Toshiba is offered in LED, HD, Chromecast built-in, and SmartTV. Pixels range from 720 to 2160.
When the TV is first removed from the box, picture settings will need to be adjusted in order to achieve optimum picture quality. The sound is of high quality, with some of the models placing the speakers on the bottom and the others on the side. Depending on how the TV is set up, the sound may be muffled if the speakers are on the bottom. Which style works best, is a personal preference. If placement of the speakers is a problem, a sound bar (sold separately) may be hooked up to the Toshiba to further enhance the sound. The Toshiba does sport a USB port as well as HDMI hookups to support all your gaming and sound devices.
Toshiba TVs can easily support gaming, whether it’s a casual hobby or a hardcore passion. Ease of use makes the Toshiba brand a popular choice among those who are not tech savvy. Navigating television settings, modes and the connection of external devices requires nothing more than the ability to read instructions. Netflix and Youtube are not supported on Toshiba TVs. Customer support seems to leave something to be desired. If you do happen to encounter a problem with your TV, it may be difficult to receive feedback or a solution from the company itself. Customers who have defective products still under warranty tend to get more acceptable results as opposed to those that have products out of warranty. There have been reports of having problems with the display going out, which in some cases if the product was under warranty, there wasn’t a problem with the manufacturer resolving the issue in an acceptable manner.
