Toshiba 32XV505D review


A Full HD set that won't empty your wallet, but won't surprise you either

Elegant design ; decent stereo sound ; Excellent value for money ; Full HD resolution

Weak black levels ; no memory card slots

Toshiba 42XV505DB review


Toshiba's LCD screen doesn't do anything wrong – but doesn't stand out, either

Solid picture performer ; Solid looks ; Solid feature count!

Just doesn't manage to excite in any way ; Slight motion blur

Puts in a good performance, but there's no oomph to this set that makes it stand out from the competition

Toshiba 37XV505DB review


A solid 1080p TV with just a few minor flaws

Realistic colour ; Impressive black levels ; Polished menus ; Price

Colour banding ; Picture noise ; Digital TV interface ; Fiddly remote control

A good value 37in screen that offers cinematic pictures despite some issues with colour and picture noise

Toshiba Regza 37XV505D television - Pocket-lint


Fast becoming the sweet spot in flatscreen TVs, 37-inch LCD TVs are rapidly being fitted with Full HD screens to show-off the most detail from Blu-ray

Deep black levels, vivid colours, easy to use

Picture noise in backgrounds, occasional colour banding

A basic TV aside from the Full HD resolution, Toshiba has packed in just enough to provide a reasonable value way into high-def, though there are some minor problems with the picture that are hard to ignore

Toshiba Regza 32XV505DB 32in LCD TV


Toshiba's 32XV505DB LCD TV fits a Full HD resolution across its 32 inches, but is it worth the extra expense?

A Full HD set for £650? What's the catch? Turns out, there isn't one...

Compromised in places, but the Toshiba still harbours enough positives to deliver a four-star showing

Toshiba Regza 37XV505D review


It's not quite as affordable as LG's 37LF75, but £650 is still a remarkable price for a 37in, 1080p TV from a major brand.

Toshiba 42XV505D


Not perfect, but the Toshiba is an elegant set representing fine value for money

Pleasant design ; good stability and detail to images

Noisy Freeview picture ; ruddy colour balance ; sound lacks clarity

Toshiba 37XV505


Toshiba comes up with the goods again - a fine-value screen if you're on a tight budget

Full HD specification ; clean, bright, crisp picture ; decent detail ; fine TV tuner

Blacks lack insight ; colour balance is a little rosy

Toshiba 32XV505DB 32" Full HD 1080p LCD TV


ItÂ's a question that still gets asked: Â"Is there any point in a Full High-def, 1080p display when the screen size is only 32 inches?Â" ItÂ's true that a higher resolution displayÂ's advantages really shine at the larger screen sizes, but given that...
