Great Little TV,
This review is from: Toshiba 24L4200U 24-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED TV (Black) (2012 Model) (Electronics)
This TV a great buy for use in the kids room, dorm room or kitchen. I say this because it is great for movies and games. The optional game mode can speed up the TVs processing which is great especially for any online games. The 1080p and LED lighting work well together to create great pictures and decent blacks and whites for a TV so low in price. The TV also has a Dynamic Picture Mode which helps clean up the picture and color when watching a movie of television show.
The sound on this TV is fine for small applications. Toshiba uses what they call "Audyssey Premium" to help the sound quality, and although I can't say that it makes the audio better, I can say that I have no negative comments about the sound and that is a big plus. The Audyssey Premium may really shine when hooked up to external speakers, but due to its small size I have no intentions of ever installing external speakers.
The only complaint I have with this unit is the auto dimming feature that is suppose to save energy and the life of the screen. It does not adjust the back light gracefully, so if the room lighting changes a noticeable jump up or down in screen brightness occurs. You then have to readjust your eyes to the screen which is kind of annoying. This feature is best turned off unless it is in a room without ambient light changes.
Overall this TV provides great picture and sound for a very reasonable price. Five Stars.

The sound is decent for voice, of course there is very little bass but that's too be expected. The problem for music (as when watching music videos) is that the speakers fire backwards. This is not conducive to a good "stereo image".
Personally I purchased this mainly as an inexpensive 1080p monitor to use with Ipad, and for that purpose I'm very satisfied.

Thank you for the tip. I can't say I watch much music videos or listen to much music on it, then again there is no such thing as a music video station anymore. I agree with your statement that the sound is decent, but nothing special or impressive.
