Toshiba 42C3030D review


A cheap but underwhelming LCD effort from Toshiba

Good value ; Impressive sharpness ; Bright colours

Black levels could be better ; Motion blurs a touch

Toshiba Regza 42C3030D 42in LCD TV


Toshiba's new C series certainly looks like great value, but how much to you have to compromise for that price?

If you were hoping that the 42in C series would boast a 1,920 x 1,080 panel like the {linkout42WLT66 before it, I’m afraid you’re in for a disappointment. Despite the fact that both the X and Z series have Full HD panels, the humble C series has to...

Toshiba Regza 32C3030D review


Initially we were very optimistic that the Regza 32C3030D might be able to deliver Toshiba's traditional TV quality at a genuinely budget price. Sadly, however, our optimism is quickly scuppered by the 32C3030D's rather obvious susceptibility to a...

Good price ; Impressive connections ; Sharpness ; Vibrant colours

Below par black levels ; Average sonics ; Limited viewing angle

Conclusion As ever when we get an eye-catchingly cheap TV like the Toshiba Regza 32C3030D at around £450, we start out from a position of hope. But ultimately while it's not shockingly bad by any means, it doesn't do enough to stop us from wanting to...

If you're on of the unfortunate few who still slump down in front of a full-fat CRT each night then get ready, because Toshiba's 32-inch LCD is coming to get you…

A 32in TV that offers fantastic performance and bulging feature list at an impressively low price.

Toshiba Regza 37C3030D review


A worthy television for people looking to enter the high-definition market, offering very good HD picture quality and enough features to satisfy most users -- and Freeview performance is decent too

High-definition picture quality ; Easy-to-use menu system

Only two HDMI sockets ; Patchy backlight

While this TV isn't perfect, it does well on both HD and Freeview content and the 37-inch screen is large enough to impress your mates

Toshiba 42X3030D 1080 LCD TV


ToshibaÂ's latest foray into the 1080 panel business comes in the guise of the 42Â" X3030D LCD TV. Joining the Â'XÂ' series of panels under the now familiar Â'RegzaÂ' product line name, this flat panel scores well in the design stakes almost looking...

Toshiba 42C3030


Toshiba's 42C3030 is the brand's first self-consciously budget 42in LCD TV. But it doesn't wear its budget heart on its sleeve. Its matt black finish and silver trim look solid enough, for instance, and its connections include twin HDMIs, a component...

Decent value, plenty of features including 1080p/24fps playback, good colours and motion handling

Black levels are inconsistent and rather hollow
