Toshiba 37UL863

 

Personal TV is here. Sort of. If you're the type of person who endlessly fiddles with a TV's settings mid-movie to howls of abuse from your co-habitees - largely to undo others' ruinous work, obviously - Toshiba's 37UL863 might just be the TV for you....

Remote, BBC iPlayer, versatile images, dual hi-def tuners

Toshiba Places lacks content, some motion blur, Personal TV

Armed with Wi-Fi, an almost plasma-like richness and BBC iPlayer, the 37UL863B will do a sterling job in living rooms looking to upsize and get online - and on a budget.

Toshiba 37UL863 review

 

Inoffensive looks ; great spec at the price ; pictures are occasionally very impressive

Blotchy backlighting ; motion processing hinders rather than helps

Gets the balance between price and performance just right

Toshiba 46UL863B

 

Toshiba's 46UL863B finally introduces the brand's first proper ‘smart TV' service. But is it worth the wait?

Pretty looks, Innovative personalisation technology, Exceptional setup verstaility and integrated wi-fi

Backlight inconsistency, half-hearted multimedia features, flimsy sound and motion blur

Toshiba Regza 32UL863 32in LED TV

 

Review This Toshiba delivers possibly the sharpest HD picture I've seen on any 32in TV all year. There, I've said it. If you're looking for a good reason to buy this set, that's it.

Overall, I rate this 32-incher rather highly. It’s decently priced, is capable of blisteringly sharp HD, is satellite dish friendly, has good USB media playback and comes with a net portal which might yet come good. Well worth a look. ®
