Toshiba's L7200U LED TV comes loaded with features, but mediocre picture quality makes its high price tough to stomach.

David Katzmaier here with the Toshiba -- 7200 ULEDTV. This is Toshiba's most expensive LE DTV series and it comes in a 55 -- and a 47 inch size. One of the nicer looking TVs on the market of course when seen from the side like all -- TVs it's really thin. Feature wise Toshiba packed in an -- has the only EPG which is a built in electronic program guide. And cable box control we -- -- -- -- TV this year that allows us that's actually replace the guide built in your cable box. Doesn't work well that well however especially because there's no.
