Toshiba's newest sets feature new ultra-thin designs. When the UL605's touch sensitive power control on the frame is pressed, users are given a picture powered by Toshiba's DynaLight, which automatically adjusts the LEDs in an attempt to maintain picture quality.

"Invisible" speakers are paired with Dolby Digital Plus for a richer sound experience. Both series also include a gaming mode that reportedly cuts the lag between a remote control button press and the resulting on-screen action, making these sets good choices for PC or console gaming TVs.

Beyond this, the UL605 Series includes a USB port, and support for DLNA file sharing. Users can easily watch videos, share and view photos, and listen to music right on the screen, no matter if the files are stored on a digital camera, a portable drive, a networked PC or elsewhere.

SL400 Series
Toshiba's SL400 series makes it possible to have the design of a Toshiba LED HDTV in the bedroom, kitchen, or den. The models from the series feature two HDMI-CEC ports that can be used to control connected CEC devices with the TV's remote, and a USB port for sharing photos and music.
