Toshiba Regza 32CV505D LCD television

 

Time for a new TV?

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.

Matt screen reduces glare, useful presets, connections, price

Design a little bland, problems with signal reception

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...

Toshiba Regza 37CV505D review

 

The Toshiba Regza 37CV505D is a strong, entry-level TV that has a lot to offer. We'd suggest this TV is ideal for people who aren't interested in keeping up with the Joneses but just want a decent 720p TV

Picture quality ; Styling ; Ease of use ; Price ; Support for 1080p/24

Sound quality is murky

If you're prepared to spend more, we'd suggest the Panasonic Viera TH-37PX80B as a very credible alternative, and of course, Toshiba's own 37XV505D. Whichever you choose, we're sure you'll be thrilled

Toshiba 32CV505DB

 

The Toshiba 32CV505DB is a Digital TV with 81.2 cm screen under Active Vision Technology. This provides precision images in 1366x768 resolution and 30000:1 contrast ratio. Other features include electronic programme guide, comb filter digital noise...

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
