Toshiba 46YL863 review

 

The 46YL863 is a fine-looking TV, although its heavy-duty stand lacks the coolness of the gorgeous brushed aluminium bezel and designer remote control. It is not, however, a TV for the impatient, taking a good 30 seconds for the blank screen to spring...

Adept at handling HD; needs little adjustment

Slow in use; excessive MPEG noise on Blu-rays

Toshiba 46YL863 review

 

Toshiba adds design panache to its Cevo technology in an almost brilliant 46-inch 3D TV

Gorgeous design and sturdy build ; Mostly excellent picture quality ; Fair value ; Good online interface

Online service lacks content ; Some crosstalk with 3D ; Minor backlight inconsistencies ; Integrated camera is poor

If you live in the UK, chances are your main impression of Toshiba these days is of a value-driven brand that successfully sells mostly good TVs for less money than you'd expect.

Toshiba 46YL863 review

 

The Toshiba 46YL863 3D-ready, connected TV promises to be smarter than the rest

Crisp Resolution+ enhanced HD ; Understated ; classy design ; Range of IPTV services

Crosstalk heavy 3D ; Poor network streaming support ; Places net portal is limited

Its Cevo Engine processing does an excellent job, but it can't fully rectify the shortcomings of its panel

Toshiba 46YL863 review

 

Tech-laden Toshiba marks a triumphant return to form

Low price ; smart looks ; neat interface ; good contrast levels ; bright, punchy colours

Not the detail of very best ; not the exhaustive smart TV selection seen elsewhere

A whole lot of smart TV for the money, Toshiba has set down a serious marker

55/46YL863 LCD TV

 

The design of the base is the remarkable feature of this LCD TV. The stand with its mirror effect virtually conceals the link between screen and base plate, creating the appearance of a floating screen.

Toshiba Regza 46YL863 46in Smart TV

 

Review Powered by a multitasking image processor and dressed by Danish design house Jacob Jensen, Toshiba's 46YL863 is not your run-of-the-mill 3D TV. Indeed, its maker's herald it as one of the most sophisticated TVs ever. But can it really justify...

Smart LED 3D TV featuring Toshiba's CEVO picture processing engine.

A great looking TV, the picture quality is superb.

Doesn't linkup automatically with my Sky box when it's switched on, you have to select the input.
