Toshiba 32RL858B review


This is yet another 32in LED TV from Toshiba that does the business. Whether specced as the centre-piece of a smallscale surround sound setup or plonked in a second room, it offers a heady mix of thoughtful design, watchable pictures and bonus...

Toshiba’s TV marries a considerable brightness output with a fine black level response, while colours are well saturated. All this equates to good picture performance, particularly with HD, and there are calibration tools aplenty ; The slim, silver...

Very dark scenes do highlight a few backlight inconsistencies – I noticed areas of the picture appearing brighter than others ; The set can’t match its HD performance with SD material – while TV fare looks quite sharp, it’s susceptible to blocking...

Toshiba 32RL858B review


A 32-inch Toshiba TV that's more than good enough for the price

Crazy cheap for what's on offer ; Minimal, space-saving design ; Picture quality isn't bad ; Freeview HD tuner

Backlight inconsistencies ; Audio is a bit flat ; Toshiba Places needs more content

The more time goes by, the cannier Toshiba seems to get at understanding the needs of specific sections of the UK TV market. The Toshiba 46TL868 tested recently did a great job of catering for people wanting a good-sized active 3D screen on the cheap.

Toshiba Regza 32RL858 review


A budget TV with plenty of features and great image quality for the price, but you should wait for the verdict on the competition before buying

If you’re looking for a second TV to pair with a games console or Blu-ray player, the 32RL858 could be ideal – picture quality is good for a budget set as long as you stick to high definition material, it has Smart TV features and the price is spot on....

Toshiba 32RL858 review


Toshiba's 32RL858 isn't the most attractive TV we've seen – at 32in it won't dwarf your living room furniture, but the outdated silver plastic bezel isn't exactly cutting edge. Appearances are deceptive, though, as this small, TV has Smart TV features...

Toshiba 32RL858B


Toshiba stirs the budget TV market up once more with this ‘designer' 32in TV complete with Smart TV functionality, plenty of multimedia support, and a Freeview HD tuner.

Remarkably slim design ; Incredible value ; Good performance for the money

Toshiba Places a bit content-light ; Obvious backlight inconsistencies ; Limited audio performance

Toshiba 32RL858B


Incredibly compact set ; Very clear picture ; Relatively easy to set up initially

Default settings were a little too bright but a bit of tinkering sorted that ; Picture was a little blurred on default setting but now ok after sharpening the picture ; Only had the set a week, so no other bad points have arrisen
