Toshiba 47WL968 review


Great upscaling and 3D star on this flagship TV with BBC iPlayer

Contrast and black levels ; Resolution+ processing ; Slim bezel ; Convenient 3D system ; Four HDMI inputs

Poor remote control ; Limited smart TV apps ; Some processing artefacts

The Toshiba 47WL968 offers awesome 2D Blu-ray and a comfortable, convenient 3D mode, but more besides.

The Toshiba 47WL968 impresses with its supremely slim bezel and sharp, vibrant HD pictures. It also has good sound quality for such a slimline set. Its smart TV system is on the weak side, however, and standard-definition upscaling could be better. It...

There are better premium TVs and good sets that are far cheaper

Slim and stylish ; Integrated Wi-Fi ; BBC iPlayer ; Big screen ; Vivid pictures ; OK sound

Issues with fast motion ; Lacks detail and definition compared to the best ; 3D is average

Toshiba has turned out some very good sets over the past year or so, but with the TV market as competitive as it is at the moment, the 55WL968B is no better than average at this price.
