Toshiba 37XV505 review


As tends to be the norm nowadays, this TV is ultra-thin, with a gloss black finish and neat pedestal stand. It's also very good value

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

Blacks lack insight ; colour balance is a little rosy

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

Toshiba Regza 37XV505D television


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 and other high-def sources. Long known for its concentration on value for money, Toshiba's latest is...

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 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 Regza 37XV505D


It's big, it's 1080p and it's highly affordable. Is the TV we've been waiting for?

Other standard-definition sources connected via SCART exhibited a little interference, so it’s worth using boxes with HDMI outputs for best quality. Sound quality was above average, with a generous helping of low frequencies giving a warm tone,...

Toshiba 37XV505D Review - 37" Regza 1080p LCD HDTV


Not too long ago, an HDTV capable of resolving 1080p resolution was not only a rarity, but also an item which was considered unnecessary by many. The internet was full of debate as to whether or not the number of pixels given by this resolution was...

1080p panel allows for excellent detail reproduction from 1080 sources ; 1:1 mapping option removes overscan on 1080 sources for optimum quality ; Excellent calibration options, readily accessible ; Excellent colour decoding ; 1080p/24 input allows for...

Black level and contrast are lacking ; Limited off-axis viewing angle ; Settings are saved per-profile rather than per-input ; Exact Scan" mode needs to be re-enabled sometimes (see Usability) ; EPG is unresponsive ; Remote control unsatisfying

Toshiba 37XV505D LCD television comes across as being strongly centered around one principle: value for money. Toshiba's inclusion of a 1080p panel (itself a premium feature) in a relatively inexpensive HDTV is commendable, to say the least. The detail...

Toshiba 37XV505DB


The price was good for the size of the tv and the fact it was full HD.

The picture on normal digital tv was not as good as I would have expected. I dont think I needed to have a full HD TV for what I needed it for. Sometimes the skin tones especially on the BBC channels seemed over exposed and un natural. I think the TV...

Toshiba 37XV505DB


Excellent all-round performance for the price

A little slow to respond to remote control commands. User manual could be better, especially with regard to use of the receiver with analogue transmissions.
