Item # 05232L4200 | MFR # 32L4200U
This item is no longer available.
A 32" TV is the "just right" size for so many situations: bedroom, family room or den, office.... Toshiba's sleek 32L4200U combines 720p screen resolution with an energy-efficient LED backlight to deliver crisp, high-contrast images that can stand up to the glare of room lights.
You'll find a total of three HD-capable inputs including two HDMI for connecting a high-def cable or satellite box, and a Blu-ray player or high-def video game console, as well as a compatible camcorder. If you're into gaming you should know that the 32L4200U's game mode reduces controller delay, making it a great choice as your primary gaming TV. Use the USB input to connect a thumb drive loaded with your favorite music or photos, and turn the 32L4200U into a giant digital photo frame. The PC input lets you hook up your computer, too.
Tip: For a list of over-the-air digital TV stations you can receive, as well as antenna recommendations for your location, enter your zip code in AntennaWeb's mapping tool.

Average Customer Review(s):
Great picture, easy to use remote.
This is a decent TV at a decent price. I like that it still contains basic connectivity functions, like analog audio (RCA) type outputs. Connection flexibility is always appreciated and Toshiba is one of the few companies not skimping on this fundamental connection.
Pros: Good looking 32" TV set, glossy black finish, streamlined and space efficient. Analog Audio Outputs are simple and a lifesaver for older 2-channel stereo systems that don't have digital connections.
Cons: The TV is slow to change channels and has froze on me a few times. None of the remote buttons would work while it was frozen, except the on/off button which rebooted the TV and fixed the issued for me. Sometimes it seemed I had to hold the power button down for several seconds almost like a computer hard power shutdown.

LED Edge-Backlighting: The Toshiba L4200U LED-LCD TV utilizes LED edge-backlighting for a clear, crisper image with better contrast and color.

HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

Auto Aspect Ratio: The Auto Aspect Ratio feature will automatically select the picture size when one of the following inputs sources is received - a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i signal from the ANT/Cable input; a 480i signal from the Component Video input, and a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or VGA (60 Hz) signal from any of the HDMI inputs. A 4:3 signal is set to Normal, a 16:9 signal is set to Full, a 4:3 letterbox signal is set to TheaterWide 2.

Supported signal formats include VGA, SVGA, XGA, WXGA and SXGA. You can also connect the TV to your PC via the HDMI 1 input. Additional supported signal formats include 480i, 480p, 720p, 108i, 1080p. The TV can accept all these signal formats, but only display up to 720p.
