Smart TV shortcomings aside, Toshiba’s LCD offers very good picture quality at a low price.
With plasma TV tech seemingly on a path to early, unwarranted extinction, prospective TV buyers unwilling to spring for OLED soon won’t have much choice other than to purchase an LED-backlit LCD TV (aka “LED TV”).
