Toshiba 26AV500U Review – 26-inch LCD HDTV


Toshiba 26AV500U. Equipped with Toshiba's CineSpeed LCD Panel and DynaLight Dynamic Backlight Control, the 26AV500U adjusts the backlight intensity automatically based on the image content. The dynamic contrast rate is improvised up to 5 times in the...

The Toshiba 26AV500U is a great option if you’re shopping in the 26” LCD range. It’s quality and features compete with that of some big name brands like Sony but you can probably hunt this TV down for cheaper.

Toshiba Regza 32AV500 32-inch LCD HDTV Review and Prices


The falling prices of LCD TVs have made larger sizes available for prices that would have seemed hard to believe just a few years ago. For entry-level models, the prices might seem too good to be true. The Toshiba Regza 32AV500 is a 32-inch set at a...

Good price, dynamic black light controls

Only two HDMI inputs, black levels not perfect, only 720p resolution

Toshiba Regza 42AV500A


The Toshiba Regza 42AV500A is a great mid-range unit with an attractive price point. It's not perfect but it will certainly please the budget consumer.

Supports 1080p and 24p ; Good sound quality ; Adequate standard definition performance ; Reasonable PC performance ; Integrated HD Tuner

Bulky Design ; Poor calibration options ; Image noise at 720p resolution

Finally, we looked at the sound quality of the speakers. In standard mode, the sound was clear without any distortion at high volume but sounded a little flat at times. Switching to "Movie" allowed a richer sound while also successfully blending sound...

CAREFUL of Toshiba products!!


After 18 months of use the HDMI ports failed on this TV. All the other ports (component, S-Video, coax) continue to work. The image started jumping and stuttering and the TV refused to turn on for a long periods of time on the HDMI only, however the...

Good picture

You can't beat it for the price.....


For what you pay for, you cannot beat the Toshiba 26AV500. I found it for 400.00 + free shipping, but after owning it I would have paid 50-100 dollars more easily. 720p is enough for the size of the screen, and it has two hdmi ports, two Green Red Blue...

Price, bright, clear screen, plenty of color and brightness customization options, enough connections for a bedroom or office tv

Sound. Black Level

Very dissatisfied with the quality


Toshiba clearly has some LCD quality problems which have totally turned my against their product line

Great price and great features in the 19" category

Purchased one for my mother at Bernies in CT. First had a lit pixel in the lower left quadrant of the LCD. Returned it for a second one. It again had a bad pixel more toward the center. Gave up and bought the Samsung product for $100 more

Consumer review by: 2mom612 (



The set is extremely slow to turn on and very slow when changing channels. The color is kind of washed out and the screen is sometimes too dark and then will get brighter. The on-screen menu is difficult to navigate. The buttons for power, channel, etc...

The outside color is attractive. The sound is good

The screen color. Slow to respond. Remote is too big and some of the bottons don't respond
