Toshiba 40E200U 40-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV Affordable HDTV

I saw this the other day.  Toshiba has a reputable manufacturer of televisions since 1921 when the first cathode ray television tubes were made.  Since then, I would venture to say their technology has been engineered and well thought out.  This TV is no exception.

Side Panel Toshiba  40E200U
The Toshiba 40E200U is an excellent choice for Price, Features,Outstanding picture quality and compatibility with other devices.   It provides a number of convenient home entertainment options and key picture quality features, including DynaLight dynamic backlight control for deeper black levels and four HDMI digital inputs for simple high quality connection to cable/satellite boxes, DVD players and more. Plus, the HDMI ports feature fast InstaPort switching for quick changes from one source to another.

    Back Panel Toshiba 400E200U
  • MP3 Playback thru USB
  • Inputs: 4 HDMI, 1 component, 2 composite, 1 PC, 1 USB, 1 optical digital audio output
  • Includes removable stand; measures 39.12 x 27.37 x 11.61 inches with stand

A couple of these features it possesses which remain unique to Toshiba products include:

  • DynaLight Backlight Control utilizes advanced image processing to monitor the brightness of each video frame, and adjust the backlight intensity accordingly. This precision creates seamless transitions with deep blacks for increased detail and depth analysis.
Without InstaPort

  •  InstaPort fast HDMI switching between A/V components: Typically, when you switch HDMI inputs, there can be a five or six second delay. With InstaPort, as soon as you select an HDMI source, it will connect in a fraction of the time.  Which is a neat feature. I know its annoying when I'm switching back and forth between my computer and HDTV or whatever else it has that moment where it says "Connecting.....................".  Heck I think with my computer it can be the reason why sometimes it encounters a problem and you have to unplug and plug back in the HDMI for it to connect

color temperature control
  • Color Temperature Control
    Most Toshiba televisions provide three user-selectable Color Temperature settings affect the sets overall white balance. The "Warm" setting reduces the color temperature to an NTSC standard 6500 degrees Kelvin and delivers a redder image that is ideal for display in a dimly lit room. "Medium" and "Cool" provide a progressively bluer image for the best picture as room light levels are increased.

  • Cinespeed™ LCD panel has 8ms or less response speed necessary for cleaner high-action home theater images. A wide viewing angle ensures that you’ll have the best seat in the house.

While many times these "Features" similar to DynaLight, are marketing gimmicks that do nothing, I went and checked it out and I could see a noticeable difference.

The MSRP $849.99 is too much.  I saw this product "out there" ranging from $449 -$950.
