Toshiba knows it stuff when it comes to making small LCDs – but this 42-incher shows it's still got a thing or two to learn on the big screen

This would have been a decent set last year, but the competition has moved on leaving it some way off the pace

Toshiba Regza 42X3030D review

 

Toshiba's 42X3030D is competitively priced for a 1080p large screen. There are a few technical compromises compared to the more expensive Z series, and standard-definition performance is ordinary, but high-definition image quality is outstanding

1080p compatibility ; Advanced picture and sound adjustments ; Authoritative sound ; Superb high-definition performance

Daunting design ; Limited connectivity ; Average standard-definition performance

If you're looking for an alternative then Samsung's LE40F71 offers a similar specification for around the same money, while Sharp's LC42XD1E is a little more expensive but offers better all-round performance

Recommended!

Toshiba Regza 42X3030D 42in LCD TV

 

Toshiba has thrown the cat among the pigeons with a very keenly priced 1080p 42in TV.

I don’t know how Toshiba keeps doing it, but once again it has created a cutting edge TV at a truly astounding price. Not only do you have a Full HD 1,920 x 1,080 panel, but you're also getting 1080p 24, 50 and 60 input support. Add to that the pair of...

Toshiba Regza 37X3030D review

 

We liked the 37X3030D a lot, especially when watching high-definition material -- the addition of 1080p to the middle of the Toshiba range is an excellent sign for the future. It is only let down slightly by its standard-definition performance

1080p screen ; High-definition picture quality ; Excellent sound quality

Only two HDMI sockets ; No HDMI 1.3 support

But for the 37X3030D, it's two thumbs up. With an increasing number of sources producing 1080p, from HD DVD to the PlayStation 3, this affordable TV is a good choice

Those hopes are raised by the 37X3030's excellent build quality, which combines a slick glossy black bezel with emphatically angular lines to impressively 'no-nonsense' effect. Plus it's even got a couple of connections more than most, with the usual...

Full HD resolution, good pictures mostly, plenty of features, aggressive price res

Black levels could be improved

Expert review by:

Toshiba 37X3030

 

The 37X3030 is part of Toshiba's 'step-up' new LCD range, meaning that, like Sharp's 37XD1E, it's a Full HD model. But 1920 x 1080 pixels does not necessarily make a great TV, so let's see what else it has up its sleeve

Vibrant pictures, Good sound quality

Disappointing black levels

Its Full HD speciification can't overshadow this Toshiba's unacceptable black level performance

Qualified Recommendation

Toshiba 42X3030D Review - 42" Regza 1080p LCD TV Test

 

The solution? Say hello to the Regza X series, where Toshiba's proprietary Active Vision picture processing system adorns what finally are full HD 1080p panels. Not content with this, over the coming months Toshiba will continue its onslaught on the...

1080 native resolution ; 1080p HDMI input ; 24 FPS (not tested) ; Exactscan for 1080p source on HDMI and component ; Smooth, refined colours after calibration ; Good shadow detail ; Effective deinterlacing ; 3D colour management (only if you have good...

Gamma tracking not smooth ; Mild digital noise ; Below average viewing angle ; No greyscale / gamma controls ; May need service menu calibration ; No PIP ; Unattractive EPG ; VGA supported resolution at only 1366x768

The all-round capabilities of the Toshiba 42X3030D makes this screen a serious proposition for consumers who want good performance at a reasonable price. Its not the best LCD out there, but the price to performance ratio is compelling. If the majority...
