Toshiba 40RL958B


Toshiba finally adds built-in Wi-Fi to one of its budget TVs, with winning results.

Outstanding value for money ; Good picture quality for its price ; Extensive array of picture adjustments

Places online service needs more content ; Pretty feeble audio ; Minor backlight inconsistencies

Despite its rather feeble audio and minor issues showing dark scenes, the 40RL958B is still a very attractive budget option, thanks to its surprisingly lengthy feature list and a picture quality with both HD and standard def sources that’s comfortably...

For the price this is a very good tv apart from a few things

couldn't get the wifi to work so using cable but not too fused about that, the other downside is that if you want to use skype you have to order the toshiba camera to go with the tv
