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

By comparison, the 100 Hz technology called "Active Vision M 100" visibly improves the picture clarity and sharpness: Marquee texts, such as those associated with stock market tickers, and other rapidly moving objects, like a ball being dribbled...

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

A glossy behemoth from the LCD giants

Good feature count ; pictures can be excellent

Poor viewing angle ; pictures can look soft

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

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 47Z3030D 47in LCD TV

 

We liked the 42in version, so can the 47in one live up to expectations?

Another specification we're pleased to spot is playback of the 1080p/24 HD video format now output as the ‘pure' option from many HD disc players. In fact, the 47Z3030 goes the extra mile with 1080p/24 by including a 5:5 pulldown system that rapidly...

Toshiba Regza 52Z3030D review

 

A visually impressive TV that does a great job with most things you throw at it. Sadly, we're not thrilled about the shallow viewing angle and slightly muddy black levels, both a result of the backlight

Picture quality ; Does a great job with Freeview, DVD and HD material ; Ace styling

Viewing angle isn't great ; Other Toshibas have better sound ; Blacks aren't as dark as they should be at times ; Price

Take a look at the LG 50PG6000. While only being a 720p TV, it still offered brilliant picture quality for less that £1,000 and it will suit people who want a big screen. Of course, the LG doesn't have the sharpness and definition of the Tosh, but it's...

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

Recommended!

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.
