Toshiba 24SL410U review

Toshiba-24SL410U

A small HD TV from Toshiba

If you don’t want a big flat panel HDTV because you don’t like this type of TV or you don’t have enough space in your room for such a device, maybe you should consider buying a LED TV with a small screen that can double as a computer monitor. The new Toshiba 24SL410U is such a device. We tested it and here is our review.

Full HD display resolution

When it comes to specifications, this product boasts the following: 23.5″ LED widescreen with 1920×1080 Native Display Resolution, 60Hz Refresh Rate, 2 HDMI ports, 1 USB port, 1 PC Input, 1 ColorStream Component Video (Y/Pb/Pr), NTSC / ATSC / QAM tuner, invisible speakers, 16:09 Image Aspect Ratio and 100mm x 100mm VESA Mounting Pattern. The TV measures 22.98″ x 14.63″ x 8.68″ (with stand) and weighs 4.27 kg (with stand).

TheaterWide technology

Toshiba-24SL410UThe features Toshiba’s 24SL410U LED HDTV comes with are as follows: Input Labeling, Sleep Timer, Channel Browser, 1080p Video Resolution, Gaming Mode, DynaLight Dynamic Backlight Control, Native Mode, TheaterWide (natural, TheaterWide 1/2/3, full, 4:3 HD, native, dot-by-dot), Photo Frame, Digital noise reduction, Picture preferences: Sports / standard / movie / PC / preference, Static gamma, stand, batteries, remote control and owner’s manual. Furthermore, this TV complies with Energy Star requirements and has 1-year parts and labor warranty.

Beautiful colors provided

The new 24SL410U LED HDTV excels in the design department with its elegant, sophisticated and slim body. The screen is also stylish and ultra thin thanks to its 1080p resolution with 2.000.000 pixels; another advantage we experienced when we tested the resolution: the HD picture quality, with its beautiful colors, textures, skin tones and, finally, deep and rich shadows.

The LED technology, which displays images by using liquid crystal illumination and is made of light-emitting diodes, offered vivid colors, bright whites and deep blacks. Along with the LED technology used by the 24SL410U, the DynaLight gave images a realistic appearance, deep blacks, great depth and sharpness by monitoring the brightness of each video frame and then automatically adjusting the backlight intensity based on the content on the TV’s screen.

Built in digital receiver

The built-in NTSC / ATSC / QAM tuner can receive over-the-air digital signals, standard cable channels and digital clear cable broadcasts.
With the Gaming Mode feature, picture and audio quality of 24SL410U TV are optimized by this option’s ability to sharpen images, enhance the sound of a game, enhance dark areas and speed up the image processing response. The Native Mode, on the other hand, will eliminate unnecessary scaling of full HD signals which reduce both the quality and the resolution of on-screen images and also restore the size of the image by the 3% to 5% generally lost during the TV’s over-scanning.

HDMI-CEC connector

The HDMI-CEC port allowed us to connect the TV to our digital games and components via a single cable; moreover, the remote of this device easily communicated with a DVD player and a PC which we connected through the HDMI port. The USB port then helped us share music and photos with friends. Finally, we used the PC input when we wanted to connect our computer to the Toshiba 24SL410U in order to enjoy a big screen viewing experience.
One thing that disappointed us when we tested this device was its audio performance: it was really bad and turning the volume up was no good.

Review conclusions

The review conclusion is that if you don’t mind poor quality sound, then this Toshiba 24SL410U is worth a buy, because its overall performance is good, it has an appealing price and can be put in any room of your house.
