There many types of LED TVs—sets with 3D, with apps, with Internet access and so on. But one type of LED that is hard to find—a large-screen LED that is affordable. This is why we thought we had to review the 40PS20 from Toshiba. Our search for a 40-inch TV that did not cross the 50,000 barrier ended
` at this Toshiba. If you are looking for gimmicks or smart features then this is machine is not for you. For, the PS20 is a no-frills LED which thinks it’s sole aim in life is to be a television that plays channels and maybe a movie file or two from a pen drive. The PS20 is a slightly older model, but it not old fashioned. It still has a slim bezel, which culminates in a V shape at the bottom. It takes a while to power on this TV, about 30 seconds. But once on, you see that the pictures are super clear, especially while playing Full HD channels. If the transmission is not good enough, the TV has a auto clean function which removes grains by reducing the sharpness of the picture. This works quite well if you are dependent on a local cable or, worse, terrestrial service. The colours are true and the blacks solid, though we could not help but notice the burst of light at the top corners when the unit is powering on. There is a USB Movie feature which plays any file format in the flash drive that plugs into the port at the left. We loved the auto run feature that immediately asks you if you want to open the files in the USB drive. You can watch the video with the added advantage of fast forward, rewind and pause. However, once you switch off the TV you need to plug in the USB drive again for it to be recognised. The sound is good and works well when you are watching cable. But with some video formats it seems a bit too low. The remote is easy to use and has a very handy quick menu feature which shows the controls that you use the most. However, the best feature has to be the price, making this one of the most affordable big screen LEDs, that too a “branded” one.
