Toshiba 32AV555 review


A stylish LCD with a budget pricetag, but can it perform?

Amazing price ; Performs above its station

Evidence of motion blur ; Weak audio

Although far from perfect, if you're on a tight budget, the 32AV555 gives you far more quality for £350 than you've any right to expect

Toshiba 32AV555DB 32in LCD TV


Could this be the TV bargain of the Christmas season?

As if that wasn't enough, the TV's spec list also shows that it carries Faroudja's DCDi system. This deinterlaces the image and blends rough edges in diagonal lines, to reduce that jagged, noisy look that otherwise tends to afflict standard def pictures.

Toshiba 32AV555DB review


If you like your LCDs fancy, then this Toshiba may not be for you, but those seeking good value on a budget may have a winner

Cheap as chips ; solid picture for the money ; accepts1080p/24fps ; sound is above average

Not the insight or poise of best ; a little soft with standard-def ; average spec

Low on frills but high on value, it’s a good option if you’re on a tight budget

Not surprisingly, it doesn't exactly set the world on fire with its looks, which are resolutely bland. It's also rather average in the connections department, thanks to its carriage of just two HDMIs rather than the three sported by our other three...

So cheap it's silly, fair specification and good performance for the money

Black levels not the best, weak standard definition sources can look a bit rough, the picture isn't very bright
