Toshiba 40BL702B review


Edge LED TV ideal for Virgin or Sky subscribers

Connectivity ; Blu-ray image quality ; Tactile remote control ; Digital file handling

Lacks HD digital channels ; Clunky Freeview EPG ; Crushed black levels ; Some LED light leakage ; Motion blur

Toshiba's 40RL953 is marginally more impressive (and expensive) and includes both Toshiba Places (the brand's smart TV platform) and a Freeview HD tuner.
