Toshiba 37CV505D review


It may not be Full HD, but we still warmed to this 37in Toshiba

Looks good ; Offers all the basics, Reasonable image quality

Not Full HD ; Limited audio performance

At the price, you do get a fair bit for your money, and even without Full HD, pictures still look good

Toshiba 32CV505DB review


A fantastic entry-level model that teaches its bigger brothers a thing or two

Strong black levels ; Vibrant pictures ; Bargain price

Some motion judder ; Poor audio

A really good picture performer at a brilliantly affordable price

Toshiba Regza 32CV505D LCD television - Pocket-lint


Toshiba's CV series of LCD TVs aim to offer a high specs without blowing the bank and are available in 32-, 37- and 42-inch. But have they succeeded?

Matt screen reduces glare, useful presets, connections, price

Design a little bland, problems with signal reception

Considering the number of connections, the CV range gives you a big bang for your buck, especially at the small end. The design might not compete with some rivals, for example from Philips or Sony, but you do get a lot for your money.

This Toshiba's entry-level price belies its great picture and sound

Not the last word in outright picture quality, the Toshiba is a solid, competitively priced set

Toshiba Regza 32CV505DB 32in LCD TV


Toshiba's latest 32in CV Series LCD TV promises a lot, and all for under £500!

Despite being a touch disappointing on the audio front, I really like the 32CV505DB. After all, it also delivers great connectivity, plenty of features and, best of all, cracking picture quality for a knock-down price. Here's hoping it's just the first...

For a 32-inch screen, you really don’t need a Full HD panel. Instead, Toshiba has loaded up the CV505 with smart extras that really do make a difference. A total bargain. Toshiba 32CV505DB is tagged with Toshiba, LCD and TV. Select a tag (Toshiba, for...

Toshiba 37CV505DB


Looks rough around the edges but who cares with the diamond price!

Incredible value / Impressive pictures

Not full HD / Noisy SD images

There’s less to trouble us on the connections front, though. For the 37CV505DB shrugs off its lowly price to serve up the three v1.3 HDMIs we now look for as standard, as well as including the PC port that sometimes goes AWOL on relatively budget LCD TVs
