TECHRADAR 2013 - RECOMMENDED!

Expert review by: Jamie Carter (techradar.com)

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

There was a time when the passive 3D TV system, which most of us are familiar with from the cinema, was seen as a cheap, less effective technology best used on second-rung TVs.

Toshiba 47WL968

 

Toshiba's new flagship 47in TV fails with 3D, but works nicely as a 2D display.

Lovely, super-slim design, Many good 2D picture qualities, Sounds surprisingly good

Horrible motion problems with 3D, Could do with more online services, Slightly high input lag

Toshiba 55WL968B

 

Toshiba's new high-end TV turns out to be something of a disappointment.

Sleek design, Colours are natural and punchy, HD and standard def pictures both look sharp

Black levels are rather average, 3D motion is severely flawed, Places online service would benefit from more content

Toshiba 55WL968

 

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.
