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...

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

Flaky backlighting and unexciting picture – not Toshiba’s finest offering

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...

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.

Despite the blurb on the advert this TV is not internet ready - you need to buy extra kit to enable you to access some websites such as iPlayer etc. It takes an entirety to switch on! Press the standby button and you have to wait several seconds for a...
