Toshiba 24SL415 Review

24" LCD/LED TV with NET TV

Connectivity is the main attraction with this TV as Toshiba has foregone sleek looks and the most upgraded picture performance features in favor of complete Internet TV access.

Picture and Viewing Features

The 24SL415 contains a 720p, 60Hz panel. Lately, these have not been our favorite panels as viewing angles degrade and they tend to show a lot more motion artifacts than their 1080p brethren. However, at 32” in size this may not be too big a drawback.

Appearance

The 24SL415 has a black gloss bezel and does not worry much with being slim or sleek looking. It's a pretty basic TV design due to the smaller sizes of the series.

Internet Applications and Connectivity

There is full wireless capability included on the 24SL415 to enable the NET TV option – Toshiba's full Internet TV suite. Aside from the premium Internet TV Apps like Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, and Hulu – Toshiba's Internet TV option largely relies on a partnership with Yahoo! Widgets which are fast improving due to an open source solution which allows software developers to introduce different Apps constantly, much the same as most of the other manufacturers except through Yahoo!. This open source application is opening up many new creative and relevant applications that these streamlined Internet Apps for TVs needed.

Standout Features

For a small TV the SL425 series has lots of extra features with complete included wifi capability for accessing Toshiba's Internet TV suite called NET TV.
