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

Although outperformed by the Sony offering, the 26AV505 is remarkably good value nevertheless

Toshiba 19AV505D 19in LCD TV


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

Toshiba 26AV505DB


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: John Archer (

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

sound quality is terrible, I had to double check that I hadn`t left wrapping over the speaker vent! The picture seems too dark also

Toshiba 19AV505DB


Easy set up-simple to use.

No good for ceiling applications. Remote delay is a bit long resulting in over programming.
