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.


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.

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.


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.
