Toshiba's big screen TL515U LED HDTV series delivers brilliant movies and games in Natural 3D*, plus 1080p full HD* imagery in 2D. So they're ideal for those who want to enjoy extended in-your-face gaming or 3D viewing*.

Our exclusive ClearFrame 240Hz anti-blur technology takes the blurring out of fast-paced video and sports. Local dimming will improve blacks and contrast ratios for a measurably enhanced picture quality. Our NetTV* package with Yahoo! Widgets lets you network with your friends, post pictures, download movies and more--right from the couch. You'll also have four HDMI ports to create a great home theater, and enjoy in-home connectivity minus the cable clutter with built-in Wi-Fi*. Sporting a new ultrathin, chrome-trimmed black-brushed aluminum design, these sets really stand out in a room.

Key Features:

Hairline Finish with Chrome Trim, Ultra-Slim Depth

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.

ClearScan 240Hz

Offers significantly clearer full-motion video compared to 60Hz or even standard 120Hz televisions. Based on our innovative ClearFrame 120Hz anti-blur technology, ClearScan goes a big step further, multiplying frame rates to create up to a 240Hz effect that reduces any blurring caused by fast-action video. Using advanced computer processing, it improves picture clarity without significantly impacting brightness or adding flicker.

Local Dimming

Improves black levels and contrast ratios to produce a better picture.

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.

Passive 3D*

This 3D technology* is ideal for families and gamers who want to enjoy immersive action, plus in-depth movies and games in 3D.

TriVector (2D to 3D Conversion*)

Based on our exclusive Toshiba Chip with Cell algorithms, this proprietary software converts 2D images—from TV programs, movies and video games—into 3D by analyzing individual frames and estimating the depth of each area in the frame process, creating separate stereoscopic 3D images* for the left and right eye.

3D Resolution+*

This innovative technology uses our acclaimed Toshiba Chip with Cell algorithms to deliver sharper 3D images* with non-full HD 3D signals. It also upconverts 480i, 480p, and even 720p content to create a sharper, more detailed picture so that all your standard-def content will look more like HD. Color Correction and RGB Gamma improve brightness, color saturation, contrast and hue. They also calibrate the RGB values of the pixels to the characteristics of your TV, for a sharper look. Plus, Advanced Color Image fine-tunes environmental and character colors—like sky, grass, leaves and skin—to give these images a more natural appearance.

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.

Learn more about "smart" TVs, how they work, what services are offered by different manufacturers, and exactly what you'll need to get started at Amazon's Smart TV Center .

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 videos, 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.

A 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.

Picture quality is very nice.
Meloday
I have had a tv for months that won't work right and they are telling me I may have to go through many more months so they can TRY to fix it some more!

The YouTube net connection is very slow while all the other net applications work fine.

Toshiba seems to be the underdog in the HDTV market, but they really should be on top!

I play Xbox 360 fps games (Call of Duty and Battlefield), and wanted a 3d TV that could handle games well. I purchased the Toshiba TV over LG and others for two reasons, price and the built-in CEVO chip. It has a built-in game mode, but I have found that it doesn't really matter because the TV responds very well in all modes.

As for an Amazon review, I had to return the TV because it had a bright light in the upper corner. It was not Amazon's fault. Toshiba reported that the TV is defective. I have not received a refund from Amazon, but I do not have any doubts because Amazon is amazing! I purchased another exact unit, and I am very happy. Details follow.

PROs
*Cheaper than all other 3d TV models in the 42" class (as of 12/2011)
*3d TV with 4 pairs of glasses
*240Hz with the ability to turn off
*Smart TV with both, wired and wireless, apps built-in
*The TV is really 42" diagonally, most other TVs in the class are 41.x
*Color is beautiful, better than the other brand models in my opinion
*Games are amazing with or without 240Hz turned on
*2d to 3d conversion is not amazing, but works well on HD content
*Includes adapter cables for component and RCA connections
*Ports...so many ports on the TV
*Great sound output to sound system (it has so many ports that I decided to use the 1/4 mini-plug for audio)

CONs
*TV takes about 15 - 20 seconds to turn on from a cold start, warm start is only about 5 seconds (my older Samsung TV took 10 seconds, so this is not a big deal for me)
*For the best 3d quality, you need to be eye level (if TV is mounted on a wall above eye level, it may be a problem)
*No HDMI cables included in the box

The real question for me was passive 3D quality. The result is similar to shutter glasses. If there is reduced video quality I can't see it. The polarized glasses included with the set (4 pairs) are of good quality. I purchased several pairs of used Real D glasses online and they feel a little sturdier(paid $.90 per pair delivered). The other basics: 1080p as good as any TV I've seen, good 480i picture, basic(but passable) TV sound, easy setup and a nice backlit remote. Wireless access to some web content, One button to access netflix. Easy access to youtube and a few other video services. Widget availability is almost laughable. Can't find true access to the web. 2D to 3D conversion is interesting. Not really 3D, but adds a little something to baseball. I was a little worried about the size (in 3d size does matter), but the 3D is good quality from approx 5 to 12 feet. The darker the room the better.

Was waiting for a 42 inch from LG but couldnt wait anymore. I was afraid this wouldnt have an 'in your face' 3d effect I saw from an LG in bestbuy. But after playing the same LG 3d demo, I am impressed. Ive been using the tv for 3 days now, 3d and 2d is great. Some cons - it takes about 15 seconds to turn on, and sound is not too good. 3d effect on this tv is much better than in the theaters. I recieved the tv the next day. Highly recommended!

This being my first Full HDTV that I personally purchased, I was absolutely blown away by the picture quality compared to the 55" LCD Samsung HDTV that my parents own. I would definitely recommend users to buy this product because of its picture quality and top of the line features. The 3D experience is great and the 2D to 3D conversion is also very good but there is a clear difference which is to be expected. The NetTV apps also works great. The only con would be a 15-20 sec start up time delay but that doesn't really bother me too much. Undoubtedly 5/5!

Full disclosure, I originally ordered it from Amazon but at the time it said 1-3 months for shipment. I didn't really feel like waiting that long so I canceled the order and got it online from the big chain brick and mortar store.

General Setup

Well, after getting the tv, I proceeded to set it up. The base is sturdy, heavy and the top part made of glass. Assembling the two parts of the base of the tv with the screws took only a few minutes. Just an fyi, you will need a regular size phillips screw driver since one is not included with this tv. Once assembled, I plugged the power cord in and turned it on. From the time you hit the power button to the time an actual image appears on the screen is approximately 20 seconds. Only a series of blinking green lights on the front in those 20 seconds lets you know that you actually powered it on. On a side note, the touch sensitive buttons on front are really nice.

Once on, it assists you through the basic setup with proper time zone, etc. After that, I proceeded to set up the tv. The options were either by antenna or cable. Since I have cable, I went that route. Next, I went to set up the internet. From the wireless option, I chose assisted set up. Once it found the wireless network, it asked to enter the passkey on my router. After entering the passkey, make sure you hit the blue button on the remote right below the word 'HOME'. That confirms the setup. When I first did it, after entering the passkey, I hit the return key (thinking that was what I had to do) then hit done. If you do that, it will not work. Learn from my mistake.
