Toshiba 42HL833 review


Basic, generally sound and very affordable workhorse with edge LED backlighting

Decent price for a 42-inch edge LED TV ; Bright pictures are surprisingly good ; Minimal motion blur ; Easy to use

Black levels lack depth ; Backlight inconsistency ; No 3D or online connectivity

Toshiba 42HL833


'While the 42HL833 is okay, it does also remind us that the simple act of putting edge LED lighting in an LCD TV doesn\x92t automatically produce a better picture than a good CCFL screen can.'

'It\x92s very cheap for a 42in edge LED TV, Decent USB multimedia flexibility, Pictures sometimes look impressive'

No Freeview HD tuner, No DLNA or online features, Contrast/backlight flaws

Toshiba Regza HL (42HL833B) review


The Toshiba Regza 42HL833B is cheap for a 42-inch LED TV, but its poor audio, average pictures and lack of Internet features mean it's not particularly good value for money.

Perky colours ; Good black levels ; Appealing design

No hi-def Freeview tuner ; Only two HDMI ports ; Below-par audio

Toshiba can do better than the Regza 42HL833B. The scarcity of ports, lack of Internet features and average picture quality means it isn't as good value as it seems. If you're looking for a low-cost telly that doesn't skimp on features, we'd recommend...
