Toshiba 46TL963 review


The very definition of cheap and cheerful

Remarkably affordable ; Slinky, space-saving design ; Good pictures ; Easy to use

Insubstantial online service ; Uneven backlighting ; Some 3D crosstalk ; No built-in Wi-Fi

Although Toshiba isn't afraid to dabble with seriously fancy stuff at the very top of its TV range - including the remarkably cutting-edge Toshiba 55ZL2, with its 4K resolution and glasses-free 3D - it knows better than to muck about when it comes to...

Another day, another bona fide Toshiba bargain.

Exceptional value ; Good all-round picture performance ; Nice design for its money

Toshiba Places needs more content ; Some backlight consistency issues ; Occasional 3D crosstalk

Toshiba 46TL963 review


The 46TL963 is Toshiba's high street champion. Neither supermarket fodder nor high-end hero, it combines internet connected Smarts with 3D compatibility, and has a trendy, slim-line chassis. At first glance it should be a no-brainer purchase – but...

There’s little doubt that you get a lot of screen for your money with the 46TL963. Its HD performance is generally fine, the cosmetics are swish and there’s a reasonable selection of catch-up and video on demand. Just don’t buy it if you want clean 3D...

Flaky backlighting and unexciting picture – not Toshiba's finest

Good build; good specs and lots of smart features; good picture with DVDs

Uneven backlighting; contrast limitations means compromised detail

The bargain price means this set could have been a four-star product like its big brother the Toshiba 42VL963, with its decent standard-definition viewing and spread of features, but the backlight issue has to knock it down a star.

Toshiba 40TL963B


Nice looking TV in silver colour with a very good picture. In my oppoinion a good buy at the reduced price

Sound quality is not as good as my 10 year old Sony TV. I found some sections of the instruction manual difficult to understand. There should be one manual for experts and another for dummies like me

Affordable price, picture perfect, too thin, stand firm. There are a lot of features. luckily I got Toshiba. Because both smart and 3D

first trench hurts a little bit late. could have been slightly higher
