Toshiba 47VL863B


Toshiba‘s 47VL863B makes another persuasive case for passive 3D technology.

Comfortable 3D viewing, Four pairs of glasses included, Good value

Black level response not great, Some backlight inconsistency, Online service short of content

Toshiba 47VL863 3D LED TV review


While passive 3D is still only mass-adopted by the cinema industry it's fast being shipped over TVs as the technology improves. Toshiba's passive 3D TV is a cut above, hitting the sweet spot on price and quality.

Corking 2D hi-def picture ; Stylish design ; Flicker free, low cost 3D

Mediocre media streaming ; No album art support ; Clunky Toshiba Places net port

Toshiba 47VL863B review


Whatever issues you might have with passive 3D technology, the fact that it lets you watch 3D with flicker-free, cheap-as-chips glasses is a family- friendly boon.

Excellent calibration tools; fuss-free 3D; neat styling; Places smart TV portal

Suffers from a limited contrast range; 3D BDs lack detail

Toshiba 47VL863


Toshiba deserves its reputation as a click-teaser. SED, Cell TV, Full-array LED: all mouth-watering TV technologies that it's promised that have come to nought. But there is hope. This year the company appears determined to be cutting-edge and not just...

Excellent 2D hi-def and motion clarity, sophisticated design, affordable, kid-friendly 3D

Uneven media playback support, Smart TV portal lags behind rivals

On balance, this 47-inch Toshiba can be considered a class act. It’s handsome and capable of an extremely refined 2D Full HD performance. While there’s still work to be done to get the Places smart hub fit for habitation, and media streaming struggles...

Toshiba Regza 47VL863 passive 3D TV


Review Although ostensibly an aperitif to Toshiba's incoming flagship LED TV models, this modestly priced 47-incher is a headline maker in its own right. Not only is it the first flatscreen from the brand to offer access to the newly-opened Toshiba...

The 47VL863 may not hit every ball out of the park - its media streaming capabilities are basic, and Toshiba Places needs work - but its HD picture quality and family friendly 3D tech make this a genuine mid-range contender. Well worth auditioning. ®

Toshiba 47VL863


Image quality and ability to tweak settings. Number & type of connections available.

Sound is not the best & found it difficult to get it to work with Surround sound system. Manual supplied is a bit limited, make sure you download the full version to get to grips with all the functionality USB recording does not work even though it is...

Toshiba 47VL863


Great value for money, picture quality excellent

Toshiba free on demand TV and applications platforms are no where near as good as Samsung, LG etc. However this can be overcome by the purchase of a cheap smart DVD player from a better manufacturer.
