Connectivity

Input Ports (6.5)

The Toshiba 40G300U has enough ports to get you set up for a decent home theater system. The TV has some noticeable curiosities, such as a LAN port that is used for DLNA home networking, but not for streaming content. There are 2 composite AVs, but just 1 component AV. Also, the TV lacks an analog audio output.

Output Ports (1.0)

The Toshiba 40G300U has a digital audio output, but no analog audio output. This may cause a problem for those hoping to plug into older home audio systems.

Other Connections (3.0)

The Toshiba 40G300U has a LAN port for connecting to a DLNA home theater network, but it has no ability to stream content from the internet or other external sources.

Media (1.0)

The Toshiba 40G300U has a USB port on the side for connecting to USB thumb drives. It can play photos and music clips.

Placement

The Toshiba 40G300U's ports are well-labeled, and the ports on the side are easy to access. But the TV panel doesn't swivel on its base, making the back ports harder to get to.
