Toshiba 37 Z 3030 DG


The incredibly crisp picture is impressive particularly when viewing live sporting events., DVD film material is clean, free of flicker and judder., All the major interfaces are present even including one for a subwoofer

Blu-ray material is not suitably processed: 24p signals judder., The contrast range leaves a lot to be desired - other manufactures often manage to get a great deal more

In terms of contrast range, the Japanese are slightly behind the current competition; however its wealth of features and magnificent picture make the Toshiba interesting. Toshiba has always been recognized for its rich feature set. The 37 Z 3030 DG is...

Toshiba 47Z3030 review


Toshiba's flagship LCD TV hits most of the right notes but there's still some way to go

Outstanding HD performance ; Good choice of connections

Weak black response ; Slightly noisy standard-def picture

Improve the black levels and this flagship LCD TV is in with a shot of greatness

Toshiba 52Z3030 review


A glossy behemoth from the LCD giants

Good feature count ; pictures can be excellent

Poor viewing angle ; pictures can look soft

Pictures are stunning and rather messy in equal measure, especially when fed SD sources

Toshiba 42Z3030 review


Toshiba's flagship LCD TV is good, but not quite good enough

Incredibly rich colours ; Impressively sharp HD pictures ; Good connectivity

Uninspiring black levels ; OTT dynamic contrast ; Poor viewing angle

An eye-catchingly affordable designer TV that’s not just pretty on the outside

Toshiba Regza 42Z3030D 42in LCD TV


Can Toshiba better its excellent X series TVs with the new high-end Z series?

Unsurprisingly, the 42Z3030D is a full HD TV with a 1,920 x 1080p panel, and like its X series sibling, it can accept 1080p signals in 24, 50 and 60 flavours. Now, although 1080p 24 is arguably the holy grail of home movie watching, it doesn't come...

Toshiba Regza 52Z3030D 52in LCD TV


It heads Toshiba's flagship LCD range and looks the part too. But can we expect great things from its panel?

Toshiba 52Z3030


It's also reassuring to find the 52Z3030 carrying Toshiba's Active Vision M100 picture processing. For the M100 bit indicates that as well as the standard Active Vision focus on colours, contrast, black levels and motion control, the set carries 100Hz...

Good feature count, sometimes excellent pictures, rich colours

Limited viewing angle, motion softness, standard definition problems

Toshiba 47Z3030D Review: 47" Regza 100Hz HD 1080p LCD TV


Toshiba is – I believe – one of the first manufacturers to implement 100Hz MCFI (motion compensation frame interpolation) technology on a consumer-grade LCD television when it launched its critically acclaimed WLT68 series more than one year ago. Since...

Excellent video and film mode deinterlacing ; Accurate colour decoding thanks to advanced CMS controls ; Active Vision M100] reduces motion blurring

Blacks not as deep as the best-in-class SPVA panels ; Settings cannot be saved independently per input ; No white balance controls in the user menu for greyscale calibration

Toshiba 47Z3030D sports the most advanced colour management system (CMS) and the best overall video processing I've seen on an LCD TV so far, but its black level lags behind the best-in-class SPVA panels.

Toshiba 42Z3030D


Stunning all round ability let down only by mediocre black level performance ..

The Toshiba 42Z3030D may not ultimately claim the title of best medium sized LCD TV, but it has certainly joined a select group of leading manufacturers including Panasonic and Sony who are at the leading edge of LCD technology.

Toshiba 57Z3030DB


Extremely good value with all the "feature" boxes ticked.

I now want to go get Full HD kit (DVD, BluRay, Cable box etc) since they wil be awesome with this TV.
