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 is short on ports, and definitely not a great choice for a home theater. There are just 2 HDMIs and one shared composite/component AV input. That's precious few inputs, which makes this a better choice for a bedroom or elsewhere in the house. You'll also find a VGA port for computer inputs. For outputs, there's only a digital audio out, and no analog audio out.
The ports are spread out between the back and sides. Most are on the back. They're hard to get to because the TV panel doesn't swivel and some of the ports face up and into a little shelf on the back. On the side, above the onboard control buttons, is the USB port, which can be used for playing back photos and music. For more details, jump to the Local Media Playback section.
Here's a chart that has all the details of the Toshiba 32SL400U's ports, alongside the competition.
The ports are mostly located on the back of the TV panel, and the lack of a swivel base does not make them particularly easy to access. Also, several of the ports are placed under a little shelf, facing up and into the body. It's very difficult to fit HDMI cables into the ports without flipping your whole body around to see it.
