Toshiba 40L2556 : a TV set mid-range

Toshiba 40L2556 : A Full HD that makes the difference ?

A good mid-range television. This is how we can introduce the Toshiba 40L2556.
First, the size : 40 inches on this device.
Surely considering this price you couldn’t expect something excessive. You can comfort yourself with the thought that it is a mass of technology.
This television is delivered with a  Full HD resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Toshiba have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Should we let ourselves be convinced by this 40L2556 Toshiba ? All answer elements just after.

Sober but in line with current trends. Toshiba has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that Toshiba has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

The designers of Toshiba have made this new TV set 40L2556. A new mid-range model with the characteristics of its time, a well calibrated image, and a high-performance processing.
With this new 40L2556 Toshiba, the company makes an assumed technological choice. Although of lower quality, an Edge LED Edge-LED is used for this TV.

This model has a Full HD display. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
In addition, with a screen of 40 inches, the 40L2556 belongs to the series of small models in its range.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Full HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The Toshiba 40L2556 is not satisfied with displaying stunning image quality. Indeed, it also pleasantly surprised us with its well-made audio performance.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two loudspeakers and a power output of 7 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 40L2556 Toshiba is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

To conclude on the Toshiba 40L2556

With the intention of making a difference this new 40L2556 Toshiba intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
The choice of Toshiba not to include a smart TV system in this 40L2556 seems a shame to us. In our opinion, many will choose another model among the competitors in this range, that will have an operating system.
With its Edge-LED panel, you have at your disposal a powerful display system. This device is of high quality.
However, it is not the resolution that we expect from this television set. Indeed, the big advantage will be found in a very competitive price. Here, you will have a TV that displays all your video sources correctly and allows you to enjoy a very well defined picture in all circumstances.
