Toshiba's L5200 series is an affordable set that offers a good price for the screen size, but it lacks features that would make it stand out among other budget options. Despite its low cost, the L5200 series has decent picture quality, with PC Mag saying "color accuracy was quite good" and that "there is some loss of detail in dark scenes but not enough to make the picture look muddy." CNET says the series has "good all-around performance." If you don't mind going without internet features or 3D, the L5200 series could serve as a good secondary TV option for a bedroom or den.
