The designers of Toshiba have made this new TV set 40L2556. A new mid-range model with the characteristics of its time, a well calibrated image, and a high-performance processing.
Toshiba remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. It’s Edge LED display and that’s too bad. Due to its age and new possibilities such as the led, you will feel like you are going back 10 years. The image is poor.

The Toshiba 40L2556 is available in the Full HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
With a screen size of 40 inches, this 40L2556 is positioned in the range of small models.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Full HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
