Toshiba SL417U review: Toshiba SL417U


The Toshiba SL417U evinced relatively deep black levels in dark scenes and very good video processing. Its matte screen works well in bright rooms. Its Internet suite includes built-in Wi-Fi.

The SL471U's backlight fluctuated more than usual, causing black levels to vary depending on scene content. Colors were less accurate and lacked saturation. Its screen is brighter on the edges and the picture loses fidelity from off-angle worse than...

Albeit one of the least expensive Internet-capable LED TVs available, the Toshiba SL417U lags behind most of its competitors in terms of performance.

Toshiba LED HDTV 55SL412U Review: Few Features, Great Price


At a time when most HDTVs are piling on features, the Toshiba 55SL412U takes a contrarian approach. This 55-inch, LED-backlit LCD TV doesn't support 3D, does not connect to the Internet, provides mediocre audio, and offers only a basic set of...

Big, ecofriendly LED TV at a good price ; Pretty good image quality ; Reasonably tweakable

Limited port selection ; Mediocre remote ; No Web or 3D support ; Poor audio and documentation

The Toshiba 55SL412U delivers decent image quality on a large, energy-efficient, LED-backlit LCD screen at a reasonable price. It's a good choice--if you can live without connected-TV features, 3D support, good audio, and other amenities.

Toshiba Regza 42ZV635DB 42in LCD TV


How does the 42in Toshiba Regza 42ZV635DB LCD TV fare against its rivals? John finds out.

The rest of the Active Vision processing system is one of those scattershot (not meant in derogatory way) systems now find on almost every TV around, which work on everything from colours to contrast, sharpness and, well, everything, like I said.

Toshiba 55ZV635D review


The big ZV series of LCD TVs offers alluring value and 'Deep Lagoon' styling

Great screen size for price ; Dolby Volume ; Useful USB and SD card slots

No Ethernet port ; Average contrast ratio ; Upscaled SD material looks poor at this size

A very well priced set when you consider the size of the panel but this screen doesn't quite have the technological wow-factor that the newer sets do

Toshiba 47ZV635D review


Tosh gets its MetaBrain in gear with this feature-packed 47" LCD TV

Bursting with features ; Decent high-definition pictures

Over-reliant on Resolution+ ; Unconvincing black levels

All the features and snazzy styling can't quite make up for the flawed pictures, but this is an otherwise impressive set

Toshiba 42ZV635D review


Toshiba's flagship 42" LCD TV has superb HD detail, but disappointing black levels

Features count ; Detail ; Colours

Motion ; Black levels ; Standard-def pictures aren't as good as usual

Attractive, well-featured set that's capable of decent hi-def pictures but falls just short of its own lofty aspirations

Toshiba ZV635 / ZV650


Toshiba ZV635 was announced in late 2009 and became available in most countries in the beginning of 2010. ZV635 is a mid-range TV and features a Meta Brain picture circuit, 200/240 Hz (in USA) and a new design.

Response time; Frame interpolation Hz system

Black level; Clouding; Inaccurate colors and gamma; Viewing angles; Inputs facing backwards; No 1:1 pixel mapping

Toshiba ZV635 has no internet functionality or DLNA like most of the 2009/2010 models from the other large manufacturers but it features a USB input and SD card reader. The frame is very deep and most inputs are pointing backwards making wall mounting...

Toshiba REGZA 47ZV635D TV review


The Toshiba REGZA 47ZV635D is an LCD TV with smarts as well as good looks. Its Metabrain chipset and the features it powers – Resolution+, Active Vision M200HD, Dynamic Contrast and Dolby Volume – each claim to improve picture or audio quality in some...

High definition content looks even spiffier

Lacklustre audio and overhyped SD upsampling

Exceptional HD picture enhancement means you'd be hard pressed to find a TV that works harder for your money

Poor Quality

Great TV for the price


Great picture and audio. Easy to set up and install. Easy to see remote, (not a small remote)

No RCA audio out. Only digital fiber so if your receiver is more than a few years old you may need an adapter
