A bit about this item:
Toshiba 4K UHD Fire TV Edition is a new generation of smart TVs featuring the Fire TV experience built-in and including a Voice Remote with Alexa. With true-to-life 4K Ultra HD picture quality and access to all the movies and TV shows you love, Toshiba Fire TV Edition delivers a superior TV experience that gets smarter every day. The Voice Remote with Alexa lets you do everything you’d expect from a remote—plus, easily launch apps, search for TV shows, play music, switch inputs, control smart home devices and more, using just your voice.
Many speak about favorite TV shows, but this could be the first time we rave about one of our favorite TVs. Meet the Toshiba 55” LED TV. There are quite a few features which allow this guy to stand out, so we’ll do our best to give you the 411.
Coming in at a crisp 2160p with 4K Ultra HD with HDR, you’d better believe the biggest selling point of this model is absolutely the picture quality, and it does not disappoint. Images are clear and deep, with a 178 degree viewing angle, and good quality, even in low light. 4k film is only now truly taking off, as we culturally are shifting towards artistic filming choices, beyond simply refining a good script. Visual art is a hallmark new content, and this is the perfect TV with which to experience that wave.
How might you access that content, you may ask? This TV is Smart! No need to purchase additional sticks or boxes to stream Netflix, or catch the latest shows on Hulu; the best content is available from the moment you’re plugged in, with the inclusion of Fire, by Amazon. The included remote has Alexa integration, allowing viewers to play the finale episode of Game of Thrones, and also turn off smart home connected lightbulbs. It’s a true plug and play experience, perfect for many different rooms, homes, or setups.
We were also impressed with the 3 HDMI ports as well as traditional audio and video cable setups built in; many TV’s have one or the other, but this has plenty of room to plug in both a Blu Ray player, an Xbox, and also a VHS player for those old home movie nights. What can we say? We like options. Additionally, we were pleased to find both WIFI and Ethernet capability built in to the set. It further emphasizes the options built in to allow this television to work in a wide variety of environments, from rec rooms, to living spaces.
This Toshiba Smart HDTV is an invaluable addition to the market. At its most basic, it can connect to an inexpensive DVD player and provide quality content in an instant. Diving further, with Amazon Fire integration and a WIFI connection, one can stream shows instantly on the 55 inch screen, dimensions large enough to keep a group happy. Even further, one could connect a gaming system and experience a high quality, competitive setup, showing off the depth and art engineered by game designers. This could be in a home, mounted on a wall, or found in nearly any other situation. It’s not especially lightweight at 33lbs, but it’s still a great, all-around TV. 5/5.
