Size-up your viewing and socializing, too, with Toshiba's SL417U LED HDTVs. These sets not only deliver brilliant 1080p full HD* imagery and superb sound, but offer our NetTV* package with Yahoo! Widgets as well. It's a great way keep up with friends or the news, browse pictures on the big screen, and download movies with apps like YouTube, Facebook, Picasa, Pandora, Twitter, Netflix and more. Watch fast-action video and sports without the blurring, thanks to our ClearFrame 120Hz technology. Integrated Wi-Fi* gives you convenient connectivity minus the cable clutter. You'll also be able to build a home theater more easily thanks to one extra USB plus four HDMI ports. And our new ultra-thin Blade design with chrome trim ensures these sets will look great in any room of your house.

Key Features:

Blade Design with Chrome Trim, Ultra-Slim Depth and Bezel

Through "elegant minimalism," this TV offers style and sophistication that complements the decor of most any room, without overpowering it.

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.

LED Technology

Driven by LED backlight technology, this TV displays images using liquid crystal illumination like traditional LCD models. But unlike LCD TVs, the LED backlight is made of several light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The result is a picture offering deeper blacks, brighter whites and vivid colors.

ClearFrame 120Hz

doubles standard frame rates to create a 120Hz effect that reduces any blurring caused by high-speed video. Using advanced computer processing, it improves picture clarity without impacting brightness or adding flicker. Fast-action movies or sports have never looked better.

DynaLight

Adding intensity to blacks and selectively reducing the intensity of highlight areas, DynaLightgives 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. Image Contrast Ratio: 40000:1

CineSpeed LED Panel

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

AutoView

Because your TV should be bright enough for high-contrast viewing during the day, but not so intense that it strains your eyes at night, Toshiba AutoView takes the hassle out of making those adjustments yourself. It monitors both ambient room light and the incoming video signal, automatically adjusting TV settings to produce an ideal picture in virtually any lighting condition.

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.

Expert Mode

Allows for more precise picture adjustments, creating a totally optimized home theater experience.

NetTV* with Yahoo! Widgets

A suite of Internet apps—YouTube and Facebook, Picasa, Pandora, Twitter, Netflix and more—that let you keep up with friends or the news, browse pictures on the big screen or download the latest blockbuster hits.

Built-in Wi-Fi

Lets you enjoy convenient in-home connectivity without the cable clutter, and makes it easier to stream* content from your media server or the Internet.

DLNA Certification

This TV is designed to set-up, synch and operate seamlessly with other DLNA electronics you might add to your home entertainment network--including media servers, receivers, DVD players and more.

Audyssey EQ

Improves sound quality through special algorithms that calculate the difference between the original recorded audio level and the level at which it's being played. It combines information from incoming source levels with actual output sound levels in the room, while taking into account human perception and room acoustics too. So you'll experience superior bass response, octave-to-octave balance and surround impressions that are accurate at almost any volume.

HDMI with CEC* and InstaPort

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. InstaPort dramatically speeds up HDMI switching, reducing the typical five- or six-second responses seen with standard inputs to a fraction of that time.

USB with Video, Music and Photo

Easily connect to your favorite music and photos via USB.

RJ45 Ethernet Port

Clip in a cable and add your Toshiba TV to a home entertainment network. Then get set to enjoy photos, video and other multimedia off your server, or stream movies right from the Internet.

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'm not sure why everyone complains about the sound on televisions. You shouldn't be using TV speakers anyways. They're horrible. I wish they'd just make all TV's without speakers, save us all the trouble. Yes, the speakers on this TV are horrible, but I'd expect that. The picture is solid. The 120Hz works well (on animated movies, live-action movies in 120Hz looks weird on any TV, looks unnatural), images are sharp, brightness is great, however the LED lighting is not uniform, at least on mine. When the screen is on, but black, you can see the un-uniform lighting of the screen. Most of the time, this is not noticeable, but you do notice it during very dark scenes in games and movies. Also, I have seen the problem another review saw, where the backlighting will change brightness. I had to turn a lot of stuff off in the picture settings in order to get it to stop. The User Guide isn't much help with the advanced image controls, so I just had to experiment. The Yahoo! apps are cool, as well as the Netflix app, but these are really just fluff features. While convenient sometimes, the novelty of looking at the weather on your TV wears off quickly. I'd rather have them spend the time on the backlighting issues. In all, it's a solid TV with a good picture except for the issues I noted above. I got it for $800 at Fry's on sale.

First of all...the manual included is terrible, for a MUCH better one, go to Toshiba's site...here --

Now...I haven't had too many issues w/ this TV and I've had it in our bedroom for about a week now. The speakers are terrible, which was expected, especially on a super-thin LED tv...not a problem since I expected it but you'd think with the amazing sound quality they get out of headphones, that they could do something similar with smaller speakers huh?

I have had no issues after turning off the dynamic volume option and the auto dimming sensor option (would dim every time someone walked in front of the tv or if the sun covered up the clouds since it shines through our windows...was very annoying).

My games look fantastic on it and movies are great and the streaming is a very nice touch since I have a media server in the house. One issue I noticed was the sound is actually worse on the speakers whenever you're streaming from a media server (as opposed to watching tv or gaming) as I streamed from my Ps3 and the sound from the video was fine even on the tiny speakers, but it was terrible when it was streaming straight to the tv from the media browser. I'm sure that I can remedy this once I hook up some 'real' speakers to it eventually.

All in all, it's a great tv..slightly heavier than I expected it to be (think it weighs in at 35lbs?). It's sleek, thin, picture is phenomenal. I have a 46" Samsung LN46A550 in the living room and I notice this one having a much bright picture than my sammy. Overall...I've very satisfied and I got a great deal on it even if it is slightly large for a bedroom setting. ^_^

I posted this to Toshiba's website today, but I'm posting it here for others to benefit from.

Also, I FORGOT ABOUT THE BRIGHTNESS PROBLEM I had encountered when writing the Toshiba review, so I'll add it at the bottom.
**************************
Just got this set from Amazon about 3 weeks ago after laboriously weeding out others because of size/features. I'm returning it to Amazon today for a replacement. (( Thanks for great service AMAZON! ))

I had fairly high expectations for the set, even though I'd seen online reviews that said the sound was lousy. When I first turned the set on, it was confirmed - the SOUND actually WAS LOUSY. What a surprise! The lack of analog RCA audio output jacks is a pain, but technology marches onward! With a purchased stereo adapter, we got our version of 4-ch simultaed stereo/quad.

So, we gave the set a run for it's money. Within a couple of weeks, we found that the set randomly CYCLES ITSELF OFF for 15-30 seconds, and then turns itself back on again. (This is NOT a result of accidentally hitting the SLEEP MODE button on the remote control, as one might think.) At other times, several times a day the PICTURE would FREEZE for 15-30 seconds, and then the set would turn itself off and cycle back on, again without touching anything on the remote or the TV. MAGIC! (...or not)

(Toshiba tech support documented the off/on cases and attempted to solve the problem, but finally indicated it was probably a power board problem - no at-home solution)

Also, during the initial wired LAN setup and for a couple of weeks afterward, the NET TV button on the remote worked fine, bringing up a small whirling circle in the upper right hand corner (while it was "thinking") and then eventually bringing in the NET TV functions.

I had it for a months now. Video is great - . Sound is 10 Watt but it more than enough for me for regular TV.
For movie, use my soound system.
Remote control is kind of confusing initially, but getting use it after learning curve. Had to call support -good response time.
Overall it is a beautiful TV for the money.

I purchased this HDTV 6 months ago and used all it's features (Netflix, Pandora, vudu , etc...) and I must say I am very dissatisfied. The firmware updates were worthless. Every time I turned the TV on and wanted to connect with the internet it would always say network error while I'm on Netflix! It has a nasty habit of shutting itself down and turning itself on with a unchangeable black screen (it only changes when you pull the plug...). Every time I spoke to Toshiba's customer service it was like yelling at a brick wall, completely futile. They always told me that they were solving it or to get the latest firmware and when I did get the latest firmware (I already had but gave it another chance) they gave me the run-around and pretty much told me to piss off.

The picture is wonderful, can't complain too much about the sound because its never on the TV system but instead played through my surround sound system. I got this TV for the Internet applicability and it has failed. Monday I am returning it and getting a larger Sony Bravia with similar and/or better features. In my opinion save your money and purchase something at least worth the paper it's printed on. I hope Toshiba focuses on their customer service and the technology that once drew me in as a customer. I will think twice before ever purchasing any Toshiba device again.
