I’ve had a few months to fall in love with the Toshiba 55″ Passive 3D Television, and it’s time to collect my thoughts and offer my final recommendation. And it goes something like this:
Buy it Now.
Well, don’t buy it this second – you should probably read this entire post. But, you know, feel free to make that purchase when I’m done.
So why am I fully, 100% Lena-Approved, wholeheartedly endorsing this product? If I didn’t convince you in my previous two posts (read here and here), then consider this:
This television is chock full of splendid features that will enhance your entire family’s viewing experience. From an Expert Mode that allows for more precise picture adjustments for a totally optimized home theater experience, to Local Dimming which controls different “zones” for precise dimming control for deeper images, the TV is ready to wow your movie watchers, gamers, sports freaks and even channel surfers.
TriVector 2D to 3D Conversion.
Push regular viewing to infinity and beyond; Toshiba Passive 3D Televisions have the ability to convert 2D sources into 3D experiences. That means that all of your favourite shows can be watched in 3D – wouldn’t you love to have the illusion of Damon from the Vampire Diaries in your living room? #yesplease
The TV has Friends.
“With built-in Wi-Fi capability, the TL515 series keeps you connected to more than just the latest television programming for an all-in-one home entertainment experience. Toshiba Enhanced Net TV1 offers personalized content with just a few clicks of the remote through Yahoo! TV Widgets. Whether you want to catch the latest releases on Netflix, engage with friends on Facebook, or explore your family’s latest content on YouTube and Flickr, Toshiba Connected TV makes thinking outside the box simple.”
The Best Quality and Value, period.
Thanks to a tip from reader RubyRed67, I was informed that the 55″ model is currently on sale at Best Buy Canada for just $1299.99 until January 12th. What a steal! Feature for feature, comparable models retail for $2399.99 (Samsung) and $2299.99 (Sony). You simply won’t find a better value. And, combined with the Toshiba 3D Blu-ray Player, you’ll be known as entertainment central!
We’re looking forward to many happy moments with our Toshiba 55″ Passive 3D Television this year – after all, this TV was made for families. Start your 2012 off with a bang! If you’re in the market for a television, look no further!
Thanks for the review!! I’m in the market to buy our first tv for our starter home. That size is a tad too big but will check out the brand for the one size below that.
Good luck Monica! We really love it, and you can score the 47″ for $1199.99 (though I say take advantage of the sale and upgrade to 55″ for $100 more!)
Toshiba is very under-rated in the market place. The 3d quality on this unit is incredible.
Thanks for the great feedback!

I have been drooling over this TV for months now. And that seems like a great sale over at Best Buy. Now, if my entertainment unit could accommodate a TV that size…
I say upgrade your entertainment unit and grab this fabulous TV!
I had no idea 2D TV could be made into 3D experiences! MUST put this one on my list…or just show this review to my Hubby:)
Ha! Thanks so much – it’s a pretty awesome TV :)
my husband’s birthday is next month, I think this is the present that could beat all presents!
I giddy thinking about it, thanks for the wonderful idea. And. I’m sure he thanks you too!
Hurry! Today is the last day of the sale! And you’re welcome :)
I can endorse this product. We bought it thanks to Lena’s review and it just arrived a few days ago. It is an amazing tv, my husband is now a couch potato because of all the features.
