Review Toshiba Smart TV - Slim LED HDTV with Cloud Portal 55-Inch -55L7400

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Toshiba 55L7400

A Lot Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency

The Toshiba 55L7400 has a motion interpolation frequency of 240, however the LG 50LB5800 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (140Hz slower) and the Samsung UN40J6200 is only a 120Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (120Hz slower). More ...

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Game Mode

The Toshiba 55L7400 has a game mode (as does the Sony KDL60W630B), however the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Local Dimming

The Toshiba 55L7400 features local dimming, however the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B do not. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Wi-Fi

The Toshiba 55L7400 supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sony KDL60W630B, but the Sceptre X508BVFHD does not. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet Port

The Toshiba 55L7400 has an ethernet port (as do the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sony KDL60W630B), whereas the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Moderately Better Expert Reviews

Based on 2 expert reviews, the Toshiba 55L7400 has an average review score of 70%, whereas the LG 50LB5800 has an average rating of 67% (based on 4 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Toshiba 55L7400

Slightly Smaller Display Diagonal

The Toshiba 55L7400 has a display diagonal of 55, but the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD are both 50" TVs (5" smaller), the Samsung UN40J6200 is a 40" TV (15" smaller) and the Sony KDL60W630B is a 60" TV (5" larger). More ...

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

14% Thicker

The Toshiba 55L7400 has a thickness of 66. That's 10.2mm thicker than the LG 50LB5800 (55.8mm), 27.98mm thinner than the Samsung UN40J6200 (93.98mm), 38mm thinner than the Sceptre X508BVFHD (104mm) and 18.5mm thinner than the Sony KDL60W630B (84.5mm). More ...

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Not 3D

The Toshiba 55L7400 is not 3D (As do the the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD), whereas the LG 50LB5800 and the Sony KDL60W630B are. More ...

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Toshiba 55L7400 has only received a Kagoo Score of 71, whereas the LG 50LB5800 scored 83, the Samsung UN40J6200 scored 81, the Sceptre X508BVFHD scored 75 and the Sony KDL60W630B scored 78.

10 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony KDL60W630B

Larger Display Diagonal

The Sony KDL60W630B has a display diagonal of 60, but the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD are both only 50" TVs (10" smaller), the Samsung UN40J6200 is only a 40" TV (20" smaller) and the Toshiba 55L7400 is only a 55" TV (5" smaller). More ...

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Auto Volume Leveler

The Sony KDL60W630B has an auto volume leveler, whereas the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not. More ...

An auto-volume leveler on your TV is a system to automatically adjust the volume on your TV to provide a consistent acceptable volume level across multiple inputs and programs.

An auto-volume leveler system on your TV will stop the volume from accidentally being set too low or too high for a movie or programme, making the sound more even across the board.

3D

The Sony KDL60W630B is 3D, and so is the LG 50LB5800, but the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Toshiba 55L7400 are not. More ...

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Parental Controls

The Sony KDL60W630B supports parental controls (as does the Sceptre X508BVFHD), however the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Game Mode

The Sony KDL60W630B has a game mode (as does the Toshiba 55L7400), however the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Noise Reduction

The Sony KDL60W630B supports noise reduction (as does the Sceptre X508BVFHD), whereas the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not support this feature. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Wi-Fi

The Sony KDL60W630B supports Wi-Fi, and so do the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Toshiba 55L7400, but the Sceptre X508BVFHD does not. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet Port

The Sony KDL60W630B has an ethernet port (as do the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Toshiba 55L7400), whereas the LG 50LB5800 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD do not have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Sony KDL60W630B supports Wi-Fi Direct (as do the LG 50LB5800 and the Samsung UN40J6200), however the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Desktop Stand Included

The Sony KDL60W630B has a desktop stand included (as do the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sceptre X508BVFHD), whereas the Toshiba 55L7400 does not have this feature. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony KDL60W630B

Thicker

The Sony KDL60W630B has a thickness of 84.5. That's 28.7mm thicker than the LG 50LB5800 (55.8mm), 9.48mm thinner than the Samsung UN40J6200 (93.98mm), 19.5mm thinner than the Sceptre X508BVFHD (104mm) and 18.5mm thicker than the Toshiba 55L7400 (66mm). More ...

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Sony KDL60W630B has received a Kagoo Score of 78, whereas the LG 50LB5800 scored 83 and the Samsung UN40J6200 scored 81.

More Expensive by $159

The Sony KDL60W630B is $100 more expensive than the LG 50LB5800 and $159 more expensive than the Sceptre X508BVFHD.

Older by Over One Year

The Sony KDL60W630B is two months older than the LG 50LB5800 and 19 months older than the Samsung UN40J6200.

Worse Brand

Sony TVs have an average rating of only 86.3%, but LG has an average rating of 95% and Samsung has an average rating of 94.7%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the KDL60W630B in the US is $499.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

13 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 50LB5800

A Lot Thinner

LG 50LB5800 is 55.8 thick, but the Samsung UN40J6200 is a 93.98mm thick TV (38.18mm thicker), the Sceptre X508BVFHD is a 104mm thick TV (48.2mm thicker), the Sony KDL60W630B is an 84.5mm thick TV (28.7mm thicker) and the Toshiba 55L7400 is a 66mm thick TV (10.2mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Timeshift

The LG 50LB5800 supports timeshift, but the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not support this feature. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

3D

The LG 50LB5800 is a 3D TV (as is the Sony KDL60W630B), whereas the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Toshiba 55L7400 are not. More ...

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Motion Control

The LG 50LB5800 features motion control, but the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not feature this benefit. More ...

Motion Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with various hand motions, rather than having to use the remote.

Motion controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Smartphone Remote App

The LG 50LB5800 has a smartphone remote app, however the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Wi-Fi

The LG 50LB5800 supports Wi-Fi (as do the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400), whereas the Sceptre X508BVFHD does not support this feature. More ...

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Miracast

The LG 50LB5800 supports Miracast (as does the Samsung UN40J6200), but the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Wi-Fi Direct

The LG 50LB5800 supports Wi-Fi Direct, and so do the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sony KDL60W630B, but the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Voice Control

The LG 50LB5800 features voice control, whereas the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG 50LB5800 has a desktop stand included, and so do the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sceptre X508BVFHD and the Sony KDL60W630B, however the Toshiba 55L7400 does not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

Better Kagoo Score

The LG 50LB5800 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, however the Samsung UN40J6200 scored 81, the Sceptre X508BVFHD scored 75, the Sony KDL60W630B scored 78 and the Toshiba 55L7400 scored only 71.

53% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The LG 50LB5800 is $67 cheaper to run than the Samsung UN40J6200 and $77 cheaper to run than the Sceptre X508BVFHD over five years. More ...

Better Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of 95%, whereas Samsung only has an average rating of 94.7%, Sceptre only has an average rating of 73.7% and Sony only has an average rating of 86.3%.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 50LB5800

10" Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 50LB5800 is a 50 TV, and so does the Sceptre X508BVFHD. That's 10" larger than the Samsung UN40J6200 (40"), 10" smaller than the Sony KDL60W630B (60") and 5" smaller than the Toshiba 55L7400 (55"). More ...

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Slower Motion Interpolation Frequency

The LG 50LB5800 is a 100 motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 20Hz slower than the Samsung UN40J6200 (120Hz) and 140Hz slower than the Toshiba 55L7400 (240Hz). More ...

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Does Not Have an Ethernet Port

The LG 50LB5800 does not have an ethernet port (As does the the Sceptre X508BVFHD), but the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400 have this feature. More ...

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

$59 More Expensive

The LG 50LB5800 is more expensive than the Sceptre X508BVFHD by $59.

Over One Year Older

The LG 50LB5800 is older than the Samsung UN40J6200 by 17 months.

Marginally Lower Expert Review Score

The LG 50LB5800's average expert rating is only 67%, however the Toshiba 55L7400's is 70% (based on 2 reviews).

Lower User Review Score

The LG 50LB5800's average user rating is 80%, however the Samsung UN40J6200's is 88% (based on 192 reviews).

The cheapest price that we could find for the 50LB5800 in the US is $399.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Sceptre X508BVFHD

Parental Controls

The Sceptre X508BVFHD supports parental controls, and so does the Sony KDL60W630B, but the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Noise Reduction

The Sceptre X508BVFHD supports noise reduction, and so does the Sony KDL60W630B, however the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Toshiba 55L7400 do not. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The Sceptre X508BVFHD has a desktop stand included, and so do the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Sony KDL60W630B, however the Toshiba 55L7400 does not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

$59 Cheaper

10" Smaller Display Diagonal

The Sceptre X508BVFHD is a 50 TV, and so does the LG 50LB5800. That's 10" larger than the Samsung UN40J6200 (40"), 10" smaller than the Sony KDL60W630B (60") and 5" smaller than the Toshiba 55L7400 (55"). More ...

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Not 3D

The Sceptre X508BVFHD is not 3D (As do the the Samsung UN40J6200 and the Toshiba 55L7400), however the LG 50LB5800 and the Sony KDL60W630B are. More ...

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Sceptre X508BVFHD does not support Wi-Fi, however the LG 50LB5800, the Samsung UN40J6200, the Sony KDL60W630B and the Toshiba 55L7400 do. More ...
