What to Know About Buying a Toshiba 30-inch to 39-inch TV

When shopping for a new Toshiba TV, it helps to have an idea of what you want and need out of a TV. Understanding the differences between features and styles can help take some of the guesswork out of it for you. A larger screen means that you'll be able to enjoy movies, TV shows, and video games with a much larger display, adding to the fun.

How is the size of a TV screen size measured?

Manufacturers measure diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. The measurement starts where the screens display begins and ends rather than where the bezel begins and ends. Measuring from bezel to bezel will result in an inaccurate number because the bezel (the frame of the TV) is considered to be the frame around the TV.

What is the difference between high definition and full HD?

High definition, or HD, refers to a TV with a 720p image resolution. For example, 720p image resolution contains 720 pixel lines that run along a vertical axis, and 1,280 lines of pixels that run along a vertical axis.

Full HD refers to a TV with a 1080p image resolution. It offers more pixels, which allows the image to be displayed at larger sizes without distorting the picture. It is also the standard resolution for Blu-ray and digital TV.

Why does a smart TV have USB and HDMI ports?

The USB port on Toshiba smart TVs allow you to plug in media devices to view media files directly on your TV. Some examples of the devices you can plug into the USB port are:

  • Flash drive
  • Hard drive
  • Camera / camcorder
  • Music device
  • Cell phone

The HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cable transfers digital video and audio signals between two devices. Connect an HDMI cord to your TV and any compatible input device like a DVD player, gaming system, or computer. You can then view the images on your TV by changing the input source on your television display.

What’s the difference between an LCD TV and LCD HDTV?

A TV has to be able to display a vertical resolution of at least 720p for it to be considered an HDTV. A standard definition LCD TV has a resolution of 480p. So a standard Toshiba LCD TV will be able to show an HDTV picture but it will be scaled to fix the pixel field of that standard television. An LCD HDTV is the TV that will allow you to view your TV with a true HDTV quality image.

Does a Toshiba smart TV connect to the internet?

Yes. Your Toshiba smart TV can connect to a wireless network by selecting your desired network and entering the correct login information. Once the information is entered, it will establish an internet connection for you to use on your Toshiba smart TV.
