Toshiba 32SL400U LED LCD HDTV Review
Limited to 720p and falls shorts of the connectivity needed to make it a viable choice for a home theater.
The Toshiba 32SL400U produces a color temperature with a lot variance, but the variances are blessedly small. In the chart below, you can see how the color temperature cools, then warms, then cools again as the luminance falls. But it rarely falls outside of the range of human imperceptibility. More on how we test color temperature.
The Toshiba 32SL400U did well enough in our color tests. The curves are relatively smooth, and move in unison together. Yes, there's a definite lack of detail in the shadows, something we also noticed in the greyscale gamma test. And yes, there's a strange "knee" in the red channel that we can't explain. Overall, the lines have some slight bumps, which indicate areas where you're likely to see some color banding. More on how we test RGB curves.
The color strips below are digital representations of the test above, compared with three similar TVs and an ideal color response.
