Toshiba 40RL858 TV review


We're increasingly living in a connected world. Last year, 400 of the world's 600 million broadband homes deployed home networking technology. By 2015, upwards of 700 million homes will be running local networks. Small wonder then that TV makers have...

Toshiba 40RL858 - Pocket-lint


Toshiba doesn't actually manufacture the panels and tech inside its TVs, but this 40-incher provides yet more proof of why – as a brand – it continues

It may lack the pizzazz and must-have appeal of higher-end brands, but an extraordinarily thin bezel and good-value pictures make this a decent budget buy.

Toshiba Regza 40RL858 40in LED TV


Review Toshiba is a bit of a wild card when it comes to TVs. While some of its screens are genuinely exciting, others are merely bargain bin fillers. Buying a cheaper Tosh is a classic case of caveat emptor.

40in LED edge-lit set with IPTV extras.

I love this TV and it just looks fabulous in my living room. I like the fact that it's not to big and in your face! It's very sleek and I'm really, really happy with it

Toshiba 40RL858B


To save paper (their words) documentation provided with the TV is very basic for a TV which provides some smart facilities. But a major part of the document is about digital switchover, of which there is already too much thrown at us ; Full...
