Toshiba 42WL58

 

Toshiba's 42WL58 does LCD technology proud, and it's a solid all-round performer if you've got cash to burn. If you're concerned about image quality or price, however, you're best to stick with a good plasma unit; spend the money you save on an HD...

Sharp, smooth picture ; Dual HDMI and multiple other inputs ensure good connectivity ; Seems to have overcome the smearing effect common to LCD TVs ; Side-mounted ports allow easy access when wall mounted ; Resolution of 1366x768 ; Reflection-free...

Bright colours but subtle tones were lost ; Most screen modes cropped out too much of the image ; Expensive ; Swivel stand manually operated and only offers 15 degrees' movement ; Lack of audio presets makes audio adjustment fidgety

The main deficiencies with the 42WL58 come from the limitations of LCD technology, rather than being specific to Toshiba. However, considering that it costs AU$2096 more than the Hitachi 42PD8800TA, it's hard to justify the extra expenditure for an...

"this is an excellent Toshiba!"

 

Size (109 cm), matte screen finish is very important because it limits reflections even when TV is on, the menus are reasonably easy to navigate, very easy to set up. Nice picture, sharpness and brilliant sound. 5 yr WARRANTY!!!! (match that LG! lol)....

Size, design, matte screen finish, excellent for video games, great sound and picture quality, 5 years warranty

Great Tv, Worth the price and So much better than a plasma!!

 

This tv does not get hot at all when we use it - which is so much better than a plasma. It give excellent sound for such a small set of speakers - witch is better than most flat panels. It very chep to run and looks great.

Realible, very cheap and energy eficient Great product

Good

 

I have the 32 inch version of this model but the comments would apply to both. A very stylish designed LCD screen, with good if not perfect resolution along with nice audio from the bottom mounted speakers. But you need to study the owners manual to...

Good looking, good resolution and few reflections. Nice audi from the bottom mounted speakers.

The remote needs a degree to use. After a year it is still not natural to use. Ours failed after 6 months but Toshiba replaced with new. No digital tuner.
