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...
