Toshiba 55VL963B

 

Designer looks, decent pictures (especially with 3D) and an aggressive price should make this 55in Toshiba a popular choice.

Very pretty, space-saving design, Pictures are sharp, bright and colourful, 3D is relaxing and crosstalk-free

Assorted backlight problems, Relatively impoverished online service, Rather high input lag

Toshiba 42VL963

 

Toshiba's new passive 3D TV is a fine and affordable family TV.

Crisp, bright, colourful pictures, Attractive design, Decent value

Some backlight issues, Not enough online content, DLNA features are half-hearted

Toshiba 42VL963 review

 

Not a pack leader, but worthy of being on your shortlist

Picture quality, DVD upscaling and passive 3D are unfussy and smooth ; plenty of features

Could do with subtler details ; contrast not perfect ; not the best interface

A decent screen that packs a lot of nice features – tough competition, though

Toshiba 42VL963 review

 

Ambitious but oh-so-slow Edge LED telly with passive 3D

Design ; Active Vision smoothness ; Passive 3D performance ; Four pairs of 3D glasses

Lacklustre smart TV ; No Wi-Fi ; Slow, unresponsive GUI ; No wireless networking

With Freeview HD, 3D, Full HD and smart TV apps all wrapped up in an edge-to-edge glass design, Toshiba's 42VL963 might appear, at first, to be an everyman TV that's in prime position for a place in the nation's living rooms.

TECHRADAR 2013 - GREAT VALUE!

Expert review by : Steve May (techradar.com)

Toshiba 55VL963 review

 

Toshiba's 55-inch LED TV is smart and affordable

Designer style ; High-grade finish ; Competitive price ; Inexpensive Passive 3D

No integrated Wi-Fi ; Second division Smart portal ; Issues with Active Motion ARM400 picture processor

The Toshiba 55VL963 is an internet-enabled connected LED TV, with catwalk looks and inexpensive Passive 3D technology. It has much in common with Toshiba's TL9 series, which uses Full HD Active Shutter 3D, and doesn't stretch as wide as 55-inches.

Toshiba 42VL963 TV review

 

The general user interface is attractive and fun to use, however Toshiba's online portal proves less easy to navigate. It's a senseless collection of hived off areas, dubbed Places. The choice of content is limited to some subscription IPTV services,...

There’s much to like about the Toshiba 40VL963. The design is slick, and the feature spread right on the money, with internet added access. But there are caveats too: Toshiba Places is an unsatisfying source of IPTV, network media playback is useless...

Toshiba's recently launched backlit LED VL900A television packs features such as passive 3D technology and WiDi connectivity into a 55-inch display.

Toshiba VL963 (42VL963) 3D LED LCD TV Review

 

Mid-range passive 3D Television

Excellent and convincing colours - post calibration ; Very generous viewing angles ; Decent motion handling ; Flicker free 3D ; Good SD scaling ; Lovely styling ; Relatively good uniformity

Blu-ray 1080p could still be handled better ; Video deinterlacing is weak ; Mediocre blacks and dynamic range ; Limited white balance controls ; Poor accuracy in default Hollywood picture mode
