Toshiba 46WX800U 3D LED TV Review

The Toshiba 46WX800U 3D LED TV promises vivid picture quality, 240 Hz smooth motion, Internet TV apps and more for $1,300. Kevin Pereira and Chris Hardwick review the WX800 to make sure the Toshiba TV lives up to its 2D/3D standards.

What You Need to Know

  • All the inputs are sideways, so you can wall-mount it easily
  • The TV is only 1.2” thick
  • It has a silver bezel
  • They included internet TV apps like YouTube, Voodoo, and Netflix
  • It's easy to use on the surface, but the more you drill down, the slower it becomes; some apps work better than others, but it'll get the job done
  • They have Pandora and Blockbuster coming soon
  • There are almost 50 widgets you can add to the pop-up bar including Amazon Video, Yahoo Fantasy Football, eBay and a ton more
  • This is much more responsive and integrated than the Net TV portal, so you'll probably be spending most of your time using these
  • The best part about all this internet content is built-in Wi-Fi
  • The 2D picture looks really good
  • Colors are extremely vibrant, and details are sharp, especially because of the 240 Hz Smooth Motion
  • You might occasionally have some light bleeding over into the darker areas, but it's not that distracting
  • Overall, we were really impressed
  • It's one of the best LEDs we've watched 3D on
  • There was some cross-talk (ghosting of a second image) in some of the more complex scenes, but it's definitely watchable
  • We reviewed a Sony 3D LED TV a few months ago, and we feel like this one is just about as good at displaying 3D


  • You can buy it on Amazon for just under $1,300

Overall Rating

  • Buy!
  • We are really impressed with this Toshiba's picture quality and features, and it's super affordable

    I ordered this TV and the accompanying Blu-ray player and 3D glasses, primarily because it seemed to have all the bells and whistles, and I had such good experience with my "old" Toshiba 46HL196. After hanging it on the wall and hooking up to my TiVo (cable), DirecTV (satellite), The 3D Blu-ray player, my PC, my bluetooth audio to my hearing aids, and my network bridge, I began the setup. Everything went so well that I thought I had missed something.

    The TV recognized the network instantly, the 3D channels on DirecTV were in beautiful 3D, the Blu-ray 3D movie "Clash of the Titans" played as advertised, the PC hookup (HDMI)automatically fixed the overscan problem I'd had with the old TV, and as a bonus, the TV downloaded a software update when I turned it on the next morning.

    Am not a fan of 3d Television, not cause thier bad or anything like that. i just bought a 1080p 120hz 40 inch Lcd from Mitsubish, but my issue is that everyone is talking about how great 3d tvs are or how good it will play 3d games & 3d movies. the issue lies with the watching of reg television channels or network tv, i have yet to hear anyone talk about how great it is to watch tv shows not on a bd disk or weather television networks will broadcast in 3d, cause if they will not broadcast in 3d then these tv are way overpriced & not really a need if you can watch plain tv networks.so will someone start talk about this issue already or instead of just the other two features.

    If your going to buy a new TV or any other product, I doubt if either of these two individuals are consumer experts to any degree, on what, or what not to purchase.

    It is always wise to check out many other sources for more qualified reviews or recommendations before spending your dollars.
