Toshiba 26AV505DB review

 

This is one of Toshiba's budget offerings but don't be fooled by the small price tag

Excellent value ; Good picture performance

Not many features ; No PC port

Toshiba's 19AV505D is a very affordable 19in TV, that has a couple of handy features up its sleeves.

Regular readers will know that these sort of dynamic contrast arrangements are far from rare in the LCD world. However, while they're pretty much standard issue on large screen TVs - 26in and bigger - they're actually quite rare on smaller TVs,...

Toshiba Regza 26AV505DB review

 

While the Toshiba Regza 26AV505DB isn't big or good enough to become a truly satisfying living-room TV, it would prove exceptionally good value as a second-room set. It's also another hammer blow to the traditional budget fodder pedalled by the likes...

Dirt cheap considering what's on offer ; Respectable all-round performance

No D-Sub PC port ; Light on features

Conclusion If you compare the Toshiba Regza 26AV505DB to much of what's on offer from other big LCD brands, it doesn't seem particularly special. But, if you keep in mind its remarkably low price and the quality of its direct competitors, it suddenly...

Toshiba Regza 19AV505DB review

 

An attractive set, there's nothing particularly special about the Toshiba Regza 19AV505DB in feature or performance terms, but there's nothing seriously wrong with it either. And that's really more than we have any right to expect from such a cut-price...

Good price ; Attractive design ; Pictures are a cut above the budget norm

No D-Sub PC port ; One or two motion problems ; Minor backlight seepage ; Rather feeble audio

Conclusion The Toshiba Regza 19AV505DB isn't without its faults, especially in the audio department, but it's still a valiant attempt at delivering genuine picture quality, a cute design and a decent feature set for very little money. That should be...

Toshiba has played it safe with the '505 - but, at this size and price, there's nothing wrong with that

Price ; usability ; subtle colour palette ; good motion handling ; clean and stable upscaled images

A little soft and lacking in dynamism

Expert review by:

Toshiba 19AV505DBB1i

 

On the upside, its claimed contrast ratio is higher at 8500:1, and it's got more pixels (1440x900). On the downside, it doesn't have a dedicated D-Sub PC input (which makes its provision of just one HDMI input harder to take). And of course, that...

Good value, nice looks, generally good picture quality

Some light seepage problems, no D-Sub PC port, slight motion judder, sound not the best

In love with the color on this tv

 

"I ordered a Haier tv and it came with a broken dvd player. So I sent it back and reordered this beatiful little toshiba. Man am I glad I did. It has the most beautiful color I have ever seen on a tv before. The dvd works great. I have trouble seeing...

Nice TV

 

"Great TV, nice picture and sound. Love the white I purchased for the kitchen and was not looking for one with a dvd built in but after shopping around the price of the one time only was cheaper than some lcd tv's without dvd players, its a bonus...
