Toshiba unveils TL Series value-minded 3D Smart TV

In addition to the Toshiba flagship ZL2 3D TV, which features the world's first consumer-targeted 55-inch glasses-free 3D display and a resolution four times full HD, the company also announced a more value-minded TL Series 3D TV, perhaps for those that may not be able to afford the ZL2, whatever the price may be when it's ready to ship.

The Toshiba TL Series 3D TV may be more budget-friendly but it isn't a slouch. It comes in a range of sizes from 40-inch to 46-inch and boasts a Full HD 1080p 3D LED display with an ultra-smooth 200fps refresh rate. It also packs all the Smart TV features we've come to expect with WiFi connectivity for accessing on-demand content and online applications through the Toshiba Places portal.

However, the WiFi connectivity comes via an additional dongle, but the TL Series does provide four HDMI ports and two USB inputs as well as DLNA that will let you connect all sorts of other external devices to it, including Blu-ray players and game consoles. Also, unlike its revolutionary big brother ZL2 announced earlier today, the TL Series will require active shutter 3D glasses that are sold separately.

Exactly how much value the TL Series will deliver is still unknown, since no official pricing nor release date has been announced yet.
