Toshiba has started working with Amazon and has now brought on the market the Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV that packs the Amazon Fire TV. A great feature for anyone looking to stream different content from different sources like Netflix, HBO or even PlayStation Vue. The Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV packs quite the features thanks to the Amazon Fire TV but has few things that might make you turn to competition.
Always buy from trusted sellers with verified reviews and trusted companies.
The design of the Toshiba 50-inch Fire TV is very simplistic in its design. With only a thin outline of black plastic around the screen. The bottom middle of it it has the Toshiba logo.
On the back left you can find the power outlet and on the right, you find USB, 3 HDMI Inputs, Optical, and Audio Output. A bit further to the middle from those you get the AV Composite, Ethernet and RF antenna.
Now the display does show a 4K picture as it promises but unfortunately, it just can’t get to the same deep end of black and bright colors as other more expensive TVs, though you easily let this slide for the price you’re getting the TV ( $369.99 when reviewed).
The refresh rate is a respectable 60 Hz meaning this TV won’t be the best TV for hardcore gamers who like to play their high octane console games, but anyone who enjoys watching movies, series and spending time watching TV will get more than they paid, thanks to the integrated Fire TV.
The most important feature of the Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV is the built-in Fire TV. With the built-in Fire TV, the user gets their hands on hundreds of TV shows and movies. One thing to note is that you aren’t bound to using Amazon’s own services but you can also use services like HBO, Netflix or any other service you would like to on top of the Amazon Prime.
On the other hand, if you already have Amazon Fire TV Stick or you have been using Amazon Prime on your PC or other devices you get your watch history and everything else instantly shown to you when you fire the TV up and log in with your Amazon account. On top of this, you also get to use the Amazon Alexa that can do all sort of things from controlling other smart devices in your home to helping you to play shows, telling what the weather and even calling you a ride.
The remote for the Toshiba 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV is a bit more complex and suited for the TV usage than your basic Amazon Fire TV Stick remote. On top of the basic microphone and power buttons you get your navigation, back and forward rewinds and four specially made buttons for Prime Video, Netflix, PlayStation Vue, and HBO to quickly launch them.
