Toshiba 22AV500U LCD TV


Bigger isn't always better. Toshiba's affordable, energy-efficient, 22-inch 22AV500U LCD TV delivers superb picture quality.

Excellent color quality and picture detail. Energy efficient. Tilting base stand.

Contrast ratio is on the low side. Thick HDMI cables can be a tight fit.

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...

Great little TV


We got this for our 5th wheel RV, light and small filled the bill, the picture quality and good sound are a bonus.

The picture and sound are up to the standards I was expecting for this little TV, good array of hookup options to boot

None I have found

Good Value


Newegg continues to impress with excellent selection and service. I have purchased numerous electronic devices, PCs and components through Newegg and have never been let down. I seldom purchase electronics from a brick-and-mortar store anymore.

I purchased this for a home gym in my garage. I wanted an inexpensive but reliable set, and this appeared to fit the bill. Aside from the "refurbished" mark in back of the set, it arrived in "like new" condition and packaging, without so much as a...

There is a 90 day limited warranty on this product as opposed to 1 year for the new. Given the general reliability of the brand, I consider it worth the risk. Performance so far has been trouble-free. Sound quality could be better, but acceptable for...

Happy so far...


We'll see how the tv holds up after time... It's been great this first week or so, I'll be sure to update the review after a few months to a year, but I've heard/read great things about NewEgg customer service, and this model comes with a decent return...

The recertified model so far seems to be in great condition. Not too difficult to set up or use. Remote is better than I expected with easy programming and the built in speakers put out pretty good sound. This is my first real experience with NewEgg...

TV does take a moment to turn on, but that doesn't bother me. The contrast is pretty dark in the dark scenes of generally dark movies. I definitely would have prefferred a 1080p TV at this size, but I'm not complaining too much for the price

Looks Good So Far! 1080i ! No defects!


Ideal for a kitchen or office.Also, a wide aspect display such as this one is well suited for DVD movies recorded in the popular 16:9 format, as well as high definition programming. Given its relatively inexpensive price, this TV has good features for...

Can do 1080i HDTV via cable & HDMI! this unit can display images that are significantly sharper and more realistic than regular television, as long as the source is high definition.(It can easily render standard-resolution digital TV broadcasts and...

Has only a rear connector location
