Internet Features

The Toshiba 40G300U has no internet features.

Local Media Playback

The Toshiba 40G300U can display photos when they're loaded onto USB thumb drives and inserted into the USB port on the side. The interface is very straightforward. When you insert the drive, a little menu pops up asking if you want to view photos or audio files. If you select photos, the pictures will appear as thumbnails. There's an option to create a slideshow, which could be fun for parties.

Photo playback is straightforward

The Toshiba 40G300U plays audio clips loaded onto USB drives. Clips are listed in order, and you can create playlists.

The TV's USB drive won't play video clips, but if you connect to a computer via DLNA, the TV can play most anything.
