Toshiba 40RL953B review


The 40-inch Toshiba 40RL953B offers a big screen size at an affordable price. However, while it's a decent performer with HD material, it's less convincing when you're using it to watch standard-definition TV programmes.

Decent online features ; Low price ; Stylish design ; Good HD performance

Some motion blur ; Skin tones don't always look natural ; Remote is overly large ; Standard-def programmes look rough and ready

The Toshiba 40RL953B offers decent, but not spectacular, value for money. You get a lot of screen inches for a relatively low price, it's stylishly designed and its HD performance is pretty good.
