Toshiba 40BV700B


Plenty of [varied] inputs. Can play films through the USB ports although these are restricted to MPEG 1, MPEG2 and Xvid file types. Remote is of adequate size and functional. Easy to set up.

Sounds is a bit muffled but far from poor. If you want serious sound then i would look at some external speakers but if your that bothered you probably already have them. Turning on from standby can be 'odd'.
