E210U

Visit the complete lineup of Toshiba products at: www.amazon.com/toshiba

The living room. The kitchen. Maybe the bedroom. No matter where you want great TV, there's sure to be room in your budget for the E210U LCD HDTV series, engineered with famous Toshiba quality and reliability. Sporting an attractive new design, these affordable sets let you enjoy movies, games and programming in up to 1080p full HD*. Our exclusive DynaLight backlighting control increases image depth and detail for a better picture, even in low light conditions. You can also create a hassle-free home theater with two HDMI-CEC ports*, scale up your listening by plugging your MP3 player into a handy USB port, and use a high-res PC input to show off your latest photo album.

Key Features:


1080p Resolution

Delivering more than just high-definition, the 1080p full HD* output on this TV represents the finest HD picture quality available today. Skin tones, textures and landscapes suddenly seem like real life. Shadows are deeper and richer. Colors pop. Highlights come alive with amazing character. The secret is more pixels. In fact, on a 1920 x 1080 resolution screen, 1080p full HD* content displays over 2,000,000 pixels--a standard 720p HD display less than half that.

LCD Panel

Driven by CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) backlight technology, this TV displays images by illuminating and blending millions of liquid crystal to form the excellent images you'll see in movies, games and photos.

60Hz Refresh Rate

A measure of how often images on your Toshiba HDTV screen are "redrawn" each second, a 60Hz refresh rate ensures you'll enjoy great picture quality for the money.

DynaLight

Adding intensity to blacks and selectively reducing the intensity of highlight areas, DynaLight gives the TV picture a more balanced, true-to-life appearance. It utilizes advanced histogram technology to monitor the brightness of each video frame and automatically adjust backlight intensity based on what's being shown. This allows for numerous levels of control, and can create dynamic contrast many times what you'd normally get. The result is a powerful picture with deep blacks for increased detail and incredible depth.

CineSpeed LCD Panel

This special LCD screen delivers superior high-speed video. Plus, its wide viewing angle ensures you'll experience better viewing from a variety of seating areas.

Native Mode

Many TV broadcasts, movies and other content are produced in standard def 480i and 480p or high-def 720p. Depending on the show or your preferences, there are times when you may not want your Toshiba 1080p or 720p TV to automatically upconvert those signals. Native Mode lets you easily take control. On our 1080p HDTVs, Native Mode eliminates unnecessary scaling of full HD signals that can reduce overall image resolution--and quality. Activated on either our 720p or 1080p TVs, it also displays the image edges many sets lose to normal over-scanning.

Gaming Mode

Lets you enjoy hair-trigger action on your Toshiba TV with a special setting that reduces game controller delay.

HDMI with CEC*

Technology that enables you to easily connect to high-definition video and immersive surround sound in one cable, and control like-equipped home theater components with one remote control.

USB with Music and Photo

Easily connect to your favorite music and photos via USB.

High-Res PC Input

Enables you to enjoy high-definition images when you connect a PC to your Toshiba TV.

VESA Mounting Pattern

A pattern of video industry standardized holes used for mounting to stands or wall, which allows for use of universal mounts when mounting your TV.

I bought this Toshiba to replace the 32" TCL LCD in my bedroom - gave the TCL to my son. Just got this TV yesterday and I wanted to give my first impressions and address some of the concerns listed in other reviews, both here and on other sites. The three main criticisms of this TV were:

1. Only two HDMI ports - I only needed one or two ports anyway, so this did not bother me. If you are purchasing this as your main unit, you need to weigh this considerably. There are ways around it, such as a receiver with HDMI-in ports or an HDMI switch, but unless you own these already, it's money you could spend on a bigger TV.

2. Sound - OK, the sound on this is not great, but it is not as bad as some people are making it out to be. I would say it is about average for TV's of this size and level (I install TV's in clients' conference rooms from time to time). I was really expecting it to be bad after some of the reviews, so when it pretty much sounded on par with my 32" TCL, it kind of made me laugh. I was also able to change the Dolby settings (Compressed or Normal - you have to decide what you like better) to improve the sound. What critics probably dislike is the lack of bass. There is pretty much no bass, but I feel the same way about every other TV of this size I have heard. It does not have RCA or analog out, so you cannot install computer speakers, like some reviewers have complained about. It does have an optical out, which is better because it is feature-forward. I have a Panasonic soundbar already, so I plugged the TV optical out into my soundbar and everything sounded great. I would never spend the money on a TV of this size and use the built-in speakers. At the very least, go with a sound bar.

This is my first HD television although I've had experience working with them due to my job as a computer tech. The picture quality on this TV is on par with the better screens I've seen. When a BR disk is playing (connected with HDMI) it's astounding. The sound on the unit goes very high without the vibration I've heard other TVs produce at higher volumes. The high notes are a bit sharp on the unit at higher volumes and the only reason I gave it a 4 star on sound quality.

Setup was simple...snap together some plastic for the base and plug it in.

I've not used the unit with any other devices outside of my BR player. I've used Vudu, Netflix, normal DVDs and Blueray and all look great. Even the standard definition DVD and Netflix feeds look sharp.

If you're wanting a TV that's simple to use without any fuss or tweaking with settings or configurations this one is perfect as that's what I was looking for in a TV.

This 40 inch Toshiba is the forth Toshiba I own (also a 42 in, 46 in and a 55 in). All of them great, no problems whatsoever. Terrific picture. I've owned the 42in for 3 or 4 years, the 45in for 2 years, the 55in for 6 mos and the 40 in for one month. All are now in service, all excellent. You can't go wrong with Toshiba and both the 55 in and the 40 in were bargains besides. I also have a Samsung 46 which is great, but the Toshiba is the best value in my opinion.

You can't argue with the picture for the price. There are very few models offering 1080 resolution on a 40 inch screen for right around $400. This TV is easy to set up and the picture is terrific. The only significant drawback is the audio. I had to max the bass and completely take out the treble, then crank the volume all the way, just to make it passable.
Why they couldn't include an analog audio output is beyond me. I didn't intend to have to upgrade my entire home entertainment system just to buy a new TV. So now I'll have to drop anywhere from $40 to $100 for a digital to analog converter for my stereo or a basic sound bar just so I can get decent audio. Suddenly the terrific price for the TV looks more like a so-so price.
If you already have optical digital audio equipment then this is not a concern to you; in which case I heartily recommend this TV for the video. If you still have an analog home audio system -- and you don't plan to upgrade soon -- consider the extra cost you'll need to enjoy this TV with your stereo or powered speakers.

TV arrived with no problems. Great TV - beautiful picture, nice remote, and decent sound. We hung ours on a bracket and it was easy. This is a great TV for the price and will hold its own against others costing much more. It's not as thin as the newer LED LCD models but so what! You won't go wrong with this model.

After a long time waiting and searching and waiting I finally pulled the trigger on this TV. The sound is pretty poor as other reviewers have stated but I run our sound through the stereo system so it didn't really matter. Picture is very good, especially for the price. Good contrast and not a lot of fade when viewing from the side. If I used the sound I would likely have considered sending it back. But it's the perfect TV for what we use it for.
