    Nice tv

    Posted .

    I got this TV in a Black Friday deal. It was an awesome deal. The Tv works perfectly with excellent picture quality, although refresh rates are nothing to write home about. It has accurate color representation and the sound seems good for a small living room. I don't think I am going to buy speakers for the TV because he sound is so loud. Would highly recommend the TV, deal or no deal.

    NOT so Smart TV

    Posted .

    To cast to this TV from your phone takes FOREVER and then it doesn’t hold the cast when it finally connects. Like literally, the TV will drop the cast and your devices won’t be able to pick up the cast from this TV because it doesn’t show up when you search for it. And I tried to search and connect to the cast on this on numerous devices. It doesn’t work. You’d be better of getting the Google Chrome stick and plugging that into a regular tv (I know because I currently have a chrome stick plugged into my regular tv and it works perfectly). Additionally, I plugged my Amazon fire stick to this TV and when I try watch something on the internet through livestream, it doesn’t work there either. It’s funny how I can do this function on a regular tv that I plug my fire stick into, but on this “smart” TV, I experience sooooo many issues and it doesn’t plays the livestream broadcast in the end. I thought a smart TV would mean more capabilities than the regular ones, but this by far, has been the worst experience having a “smart “ tv in our home. Back to regular TVs for us.

    A great tv

    Posted .

    Good price. As I use the google ecosystem the chrome cast built in is a plus. The 4K is great. The assembly was easy. You do want a second person to help you lift the "tv bag" out of the box and for final placement. It is a light tv but I wanted to be careful with the new purchase. I have cast YouTube from my phone to the tv and from a chrome browser window to the tv. Works well. The chrome cast is its own "channel" when you cycle inputs on the tv. the tv is connected to my wifi and I get good 4K with it. Right now this is the only way to get 4K for me because the XboxOne doesn't support 4K so we cast from a stream to the tv. The majority of content we display for now is 1080 and it looks fine on this tv.

    A lot for a little - with some caveats

    Posted .

    First off, for anyone who doesn't know, Toshiba has not made TVs for the US market since 2015. Instead, they have licensed their name to Compal Electronics, a Taiwanese manufacturer known for producing computers for major brands including Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo and, of course, Toshiba. For this reason, you will not find this model on Toshiba's corporate website. If your goal is to get a TV made by a major name brand company with a well-established customer support network, this may not be the TV for you. But if this is not a concern, read on. The Toshiba 55L711U18 is a budget 4K TV that, when it is on sale, is about the least expensive 55" TV available at the time of this review. It has a pleasingly thin bezel and minimalistic curved support legs made out of brushed metal that combine to make the make the TV look much more expensive than it's price would indicate. The fact that the stand is centered also allows the TV to be placed on furniture narrower than the TV itself. Picture quality is quite decent with good contrast and average black levels. Clouding is present, but not distracting and there was no evidence of flashlighting on the set I purchased. As long as you're not watching space battles in a pitch-black room, you're unlikely to be annoyed. Viewing angle is a different story. I purchased this set because I often watch from off-angle seating positions and it is promoted as having "178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles". For this reason, I believed the TV had to have an IPS panel. It does not. This is merely marketing jargon. The set actually has a VA panel. Most budget and midrange TVs have VA panels because they offer superior contrast and black levels to IPS panels. But they also have poor viewing angles. If you sit in front of this TV, it'll look great. But while it is indeed possible to see the Toshiba's picture from virtually any angle, colors will lose saturation and brightness when you don't view the TV from straight on. Motion blur is present and is about average for a TV with a 60hz panel. Upscaling on the Toshiba is poor. Clean 1080p video is sharp and upscales well. But lower resolution and compressed videos were grainy, with significant color noise and artifacting. If you stream a variety of content from the around the Internet, this is not the set for you. Sound quality is superior compared to similar TVs. While none of today's thin TVs have adequate space to house large speakers and won't provide any meaningful bass, the Toshiba produces pleasingly clear sound and volume levels for most small to mid-sized rooms. The inclusion of both digital audio and headphone jacks also provide great flexibility should you desire to route the sound to something else. The Toshiba 55L711U18 has an adequate number of inputs: 3 HDMI, and one composite, coax, ethernet and USB port. All are recessed on the back so mounting the set flush to the wall won't be a problem. However, the Ethernet, composite and coax inputs are mounted downward in a slot that will be quite difficult to access after the TV has been mounted. Input lag is slight, but just noticeable, so twitchy hardcore gamers may have an issue. But casual gameplay was acceptable. The remote for the Toshiba 55L711U18 provides the necessary buttons to access all the TV's functions, but has the significant flaw of not having any number buttons. As a result, channels can only be changed by scrolling up or down through them. The Toshiba 55L711U18 is not a smart TV, so there are no apps to watch things like Netflix. However, it does have Google's Chromecast, which allows you to streams apps like Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, etc. from a smartphone to the TV. The Toshiba 55L711U18 is a budget set that offers a very large display and high-end looks for a very small price. It provides good movie and average TV picture quality, though TV viewing is hampered by the subpar remote and off-angle viewing is not what the marketing copy implies. Input lag might annoy some hardcore gamers, but is acceptable for casual gameplay. Built-in sound quality is very good. A decent assortment of inputs and the inclusion of Chromecast provide the TV a useful variety of viewing sources. Heavy Internet viewers who watch videos of varying quality, hardcore gamers, and anyone who often watches off-angle may want to consider other options. But those looking for the biggest screen for the least amount of money, will be hard-pressed to find an alternative with better picture and quality.

    High-performing yet-affordable 4K/UHD + HDR

    Posted .

    The description does not mention it, but this 4K television also has HDR capabilities. The picture is excellent and 4K content really pops. The Onkyo speakers also produce enough rich and vibrant sound. I don't think we need a soundbar for this setup.

    Looks nice on my wall, chromecast works great

    |
    Posted .

    So far I enjoy it, though I've only spent about an hour watching it since mounting it on my wall. The tv itself is nice, and the built in Chromecast works great. It was nice that accessibility was defaulted to have a voice tell me what menu I was on, etc. but it was annoying since I don't need that feature and I immediately turned it off. The one downfall was with mounting the tv. The mount I bought from Rocketfish came with a bunch of screws of various sizes to accommodate the tv, but one of the screw holes had misaligned treads in it, thus I had to go to the hardware store to purchase screws of the correct length. To describe the issue further, there were four holes for mounting screws. The top two holes the treads weren't at the edge of the hole (the screw didn't have to screw in until it was in the hole a bit). One of those top holes the tread was misaligned, and the screw wouldn't reach the tread at all. Not sure why the screw treads couldn't all be at the same depth of the screw holes. For those mounting the tv, you might run into the hassle I noted, which was the reason for the lack of star on my rating.

    First 4K tv

    |
    Posted .

    The picture quality is fantastic! This the first 4k tv I've ever owned. It's one thing to see them in stores and yeah they look amazing, but you never know for sure what it's like until you actually watch the content YOU enjoy in your own home. The sound coming out of it is surprisingly balanced and full. It gets decently loud without much distortion. By no means will it be better then having a actual decent sound system obviously, but it holds up for now. The built in chromecast is one of the main reasons I chose this tv and it worked great when I first set it up. Recently however, I'm having problems with using it on my iPhone 8 plus and apps like youtube, netflix, and crunchyrooll. It will connect when I launch the app but not play what I select. Or sometimes it will work on say, a youtube video and when I want to switch to netflix or even just play another video on youtube, the screen is stuck on the splash screen for youtube. I can't disconnect and go back to the home screen and rebooting the tv to get it to work is hit or miss.. Not sure if it's my phone or the tv. I've tried setting up from new after defaulting the tv but I'm still seeing the same problem. All in all a great tv in terms of picture quality, but this chromecast issue is weird.

    If you grew up poor and can't mentally justify spending a month of rent in urban California on a single television, if you're poor as heck right now but could conceivably afford this television, if you've never owned a 4k TV, if you've never owned an especially large TV, you will not be disappointed by this gigantic freaking monstrosity of a display. It nicely upscales 1080p content, it has a nice frame rate, it has passable speakers you can hear the bass on, and as someone who is picky about delay to the point of 25ms being effectively unusable for music-based games I am very happy with the "game mode" option that removes the delay typically associated with HDMI displays. It is a good TV and everyone in my family, which includes two audio people and a visual artist, is extremely happy with it.

    Solid TV, few quirks

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this tv on black friday, so the deal I got on this TV was amazing and I cannot complain about pretty much anything at that price. However, there are a few quirks that have been a little irritating. 1. When plugging in headphones into the 3.5mm out port works as expected, however when I take them out and want it to switch back to the optical audio out it for some reason doesn't auto switch. I had to either turn the tv off and back on again for it to work or go into the sound settings and turn speakers off and back on again, then the soundbar attached to my optical audio worked great. Small thing, but not sure why that happens. 2. Chromecast kept disconnecting from my phone and I would have to recast to the tv, this could been fault to the tv and possibly just the apps I was using but, still annoying. Still wish apple had built in support for chrome cast on iOS but Obviously that is wishful thinking and won't ever happen because they want you to buy an apple tv. Another thing I wish I could do is run this tv 4k@60hz through my MacBook pro. The tv itself doesn't have many options but I assume this is also an apple issue, because they don't support that refresh rate to this tv when connected over hdmi, maybe if this tv had display port it would be possible. Overall great Picture, and games through my xbox one s look incredible.

    We purchased this TV during Black Friday on a fantastic deal, so we weren't going into this with very high expectations. We were excited to be getting a larger TV than we had before, and VERY excited about the built-in Chromecast (as this would open an HDMI slot for us). We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of picture and numerous options for getting coloring how we like it. I took off 1 star because of an issue we had a few weeks after using the TV. We started to notice that the red power light was blinking anytime the TV was on. We did research and found out that the blinking light is like an error code of sorts, but couldn't find any information about WHAT error our TV was having. Out of no where our TV started doing an update to the firmware, which solved the issue... but it was frustrating to know we had an error but no way of disciphering what the error was. The issue seems to be resolved and we're enjoying the TV now, but we are keeping an eye on the light.

    BEST BUY EVER

    |
    Posted .

    Black Friday Doorbuster Reviewer : On Thanksgiving Day, I went to wait in line on Best Buy for the SHARP 50” 4K TV for $180. That was a deal of a lifetime. Unfortunately, they were already sold out by the time I went into the store. Feeling defeated, I vowed to come back early on Friday & go for the Toshiba 55” 4K TV for $280. So, I drove to BB at 5:30am, waited in the car until 6am and then got on line. Waited 2 hours in the cold but it was so worth it because when I brought that baby back home, I fell in love with it. Like actually seeing my baby for the first time. (which I don’t have yet) Every night I turn it on just to stare at how gorgeous it looks. I thought the 5 inches wouldn’t make a difference and it’s true. The 55” is amazing especially the 4K. I play my XBOX ONE & PS4 games on here & the quality is just amazing. The details that this TV provides. It’s also very thin so it fits anywhere very nicely oh, and also it comes with CHROMECAST built in. Now, I can just cast my NETFLIX, SPOTIFY, YOUTUBE or HBO anytime. This TV is a great model and so far, no problems so hopefully it’ll stay that way. Other than that, I am very satisfied and can’t wait to go home to see my baby.

    Great Deal

    We got this TV as an open box deal so it was a great purchase (price-wise) for us. At first it was restarting itself and losing our WiFi connection occasionally and randomly, but now it seems to be doing good and it's picture is great! NOTE: We didn't realize this at first but it's not technically a "Smart TV". It has built in chromecast which means you can't just pickup the remote and browse netflix/hulu. You have to use your smart phone and "Cast" your show onto the TV or if you have Google Home, that'll cast Netflix, YouTube and Music to your TV. I still think it's great and it's really not that much of a hassle to use your phone since you basically have it with you all the time anyway!

    Tv has a beautiful picture. I am not high tech but this tv is easy to use. It comes loaded with screen saver pictures or you can upload your own. The set up was a breeze. The volume is fantastic. We did purchase a HDMI cord. No other accessories were needed.

    Amazing TV. Amazing Price

    |
    Posted .

    I picked up this tv as a black Friday doorbuster. It was $279 but I believe regular price is $499. Either way, I think this is an amazing 4k tv for $500. 55" and has chromecast. Now it's not a smart tv per say. The apps aren't built in but you can mirror the apps through your phone so any app works. And in case the app doesn't work with chromecast, chromecast has an option to mirror your phone screen to your tv. So i would say it's better than any smart tv as long as you have a smart phone or a tablet. My only complaint is that its not a chromecast ultra.

    Solid TVs for an Unbeatable Black Friday Price!!!

    Posted .

    Bought 2 of these on Black Friday 2017 at $278 a pop. Solid TV's with exceptional picture quality and decent sound. Only thing I do not like is the remote that came with it. Had to purchase another remote with numerical digits. Chromecast works well but havent really used it much. I use a Sony 4K player on it and the picture is truly fantastic. Never owned a Toshiba but after almost 2 years, I'd recommend it!
