Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The REGZA XV series is a range of Full HD 1080p Ready LCD televisions, blending superb picture and audio quality and delivering it in a stylish high gloss black design. All Regza XV's feature Resolution+ technology which enhances standard definition content to virtually high definition quality. EcoPanel is also featured and is designed to consume significantly less power than a conventional LCD TV without comprising on picture quality. The Regza XV series delivers an amazing 100 frames per second thanks to Active Vision M100HD Pro picture processing technology which reduces image blurring to leave you with smoother action even in those fast-paced scenes. Integrated Dolby Volume stops those annoying changes in volume levels in advert breaks and when switching between channels and sources, providing a consistent volume level at all times.

Resolution+
Toshiba's unique and critically-acclaimed Resolution+ upscaling technology takes everyday standard definition content and instantly enhances it to virtually high definition picture quality by improving edge detail and texture.

With Resolution+, your 1080p Toshiba LCD TV will produce near HD picture quality on all standard definition TV, DVD and downloaded content you watch while still delivering the most pure and stunning picture quality possible from all high definition sources. This complex and intricate process of constantly and instantly improving the images which appear on the screen is made possible by the Meta Brain processing engine, unique to REGZA models. This powerful processing chip has its heritage in Toshiba´s esteemed history in the semiconductor research and development.

Watch as your favourite movies, programmes and games become clearer, richer and sharper than ever before with Toshiba, and Resolution+

Eco Panel
Toshiba REGZA LCD TVs which feature EcoPanel are specially designed to consume significantly less power than a conventional LCD TV without comprising on picture quality.

Toshiba's EcoPanel technology utilises materials of the highest possible quality and clarity to construct an LCD panel so translucent that as much as half as much light is required to illuminate it as compared to conventional panels.

A TV with a conventional LCD panel requires powerful backlights to illuminate the screen. This is where most of the power consumption comes from. By reducing the amount of light required to brighten the screen, REGZA LCD TVs with EcoPanel can deliver the same brilliant HD picture quality, with almost half the power.

With EcoPanel, you can relax knowing that Toshiba's green LCD TV technology is being kind to the environment and saving you up to 45% of your TV's energy consumption*, all while providing you with the same cutting-edge features and exceptional picture quality.

*Comparing the 32RV635 with EcoPanel compared to Toshiba's 32XV505DB model

Active Vision M100 Pro
100Hz Active Vision M100 Pro technology allows you to see fast-paced action and sports like never before. Even with Full HD 1080p picture quality, clarity and detail is lost with fast-moving action. This is because on a conventional 50Hz television, the frames which are shown do not refresh fast enough to keep up with the pace of the action you are watching. Conventional LCD TVs will show every frame you watch at a rate of 50Hz, or 50 frames per second. Active Vision M100 Pro works by creating new frames to appear in between the original transmitted frames, doubling the standard number of frames per second. It uses 360 degree motion estimation, complex mathematics and 10-bit video processing, each made possible by Toshiba's powerful in-house semiconductor technology, to calculate the movement required by each pixel. Each frame is only held on screen for 1/100th of a second to eliminate pixel drift and reduce blurring. The result is seamless motion, smooth action and a new level of detail. Active Vision 100 Pro has to be seen to be believed.

Dolby Volume
Dolby Volume stops those annoying changes in volume levels in advert breaks and when switching between channels and sources, providing a consistent volume level at all times. This feature eliminates the need for you to keep reaching for the remote control every time an advert break comes on, and then again when the program you are watching resumes.

When changing between channels and TV to DVD etc, the volume can also increase or decrease significantly. Dolby Volume keeps the volume at one level, making sure it doesn't change when the input changes.

The result is an extraordinarily improved viewing experience, one free of the constant need to adjust the volume.

AutoView
Toshiba's unique technology that automatically adjusts picture settings depending on not only the room lighting, which is common feature on quality LCD TVs these days, but also the content shown on screen. The technology eliminates the need to constantly have to adjust the backlight brightness and colour settings in order to find the best viewing experience in all environments.

The ambient light sensor is constantly analysing the room lighting and adjusting the LCD's backlight to suit. Through the use of this technology the viewer is provided with a more comfortable viewing experience in all lighting conditions. Content viewed on screen is also constantly analysed. Dark and bright pixels shown on screen are monitored and picture settings are adjusted to provide the best possible image.

AutoView means that your REGZA LCD TV is always performing at its full potential, delivering the best possible picture quality at all times.

Game Mode
Models in the XV Series have an exciting new feature for the gamers amongst you - Game Mode. This feature is designed to enhance the gaming experience by ensuring the best possible aspect ratios and response time of the television to the gaming console. Game Mode bypasses much of the picture processing technology required to enhance TV programmes and films, resulting in an improved response time and screen refresh rate.

Game Mode is compatible with any HDMI equipped games console and automatically adjusts the picture to deliver a more realistic game setting and importantly 1:1 pixel mapping. This allows every last detail of the original image to be shown without cropping the edges; giving the online gamer a distinct advantage over opponents without Game Mode and improving the overall gaming experience for even the most casual of gamers.

Full Power Down
We have fitted an On/Off switch in response to the concerns expressed by many consumers who would prefer to turn their television off completely.

All models are extremely energy efficient, but we take our responsibility to the environment seriously and will always do everything we can to minimise the impact our products have on our surroundings.

Digital TV
Between now and the end of 2012 the UK will be turning off all old "analogue" TV transmitters and switching your TV signal to "digital". Digital TV offers new ways to enjoy your TV. You will have a greater choice of TV channels as well as access to additional features and services which will enhance your TV-watching experience.

When the digital switch happens in your area, your older analogue TVs will no longer be able to pick up a signal. To keep your normal TV service running, you will need to convert your TVs to digital before your area's switchover date.

Switching your home to digital is easy. All you need to do is purchase digital tuner and connect it to your analogue TV or alternatively, you can replace it with a new digital TV. All Toshiba LCD TVs carry the Digital Tick and come with Freeview built-in, making them the ideal option for preparing your home for the digital switch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Buy 12 Aug 2009
After much deliberation between a few different TV's, I decided to purchase this one. I'm so glad I did as it is an excellent TV, feature packed and excellent value for money.

Out of the box the SD picture on both the built in freeview and freesat via HDMI is excellent. The Resolution + upscaling of SD pictures is a worthy feature. for instance the on screen text on a channel such as sky sports news is crisp and sharp, even at 37". There are plenty of pre set and advanced options such as backlight calibration to tweak things to suit your taste if required.

HD is superb, personally its the best HD picture I've seen for an LCD TV at this size/price. I have an Apple TV box connected to this set at 1080p, and viewing digital photos at full resolution is stunning.

There are plenty of HDMI ports, 3 on the back and one on the side, well placed for connecting camcorders/laptops etc. There's also a USB port, which will except FAT 32 pen drives, so the TV can play DivX films and photos directly off the stick.

Another feature I like is how narrow the frame is around the screen, compared to other 37" tv's. Even in a relatively small room, it doesn't over power and look out of place. At the moment its hanging up on the wall, displaying stunning HD, a great piece of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great T.V. 15 Nov 2009
I have had mine for about 2 weeks now after long deliberation and checking reviews on various different models.

This t.v. is for the bedroom as I have a Samsung 40LE656 in my living room. I use my t.v. for my playstation 3 and normal tele watching.

I think the set is great...I was a little worried about ghosting and smearing that some reviews mention, but as yet i have not seen it. Watched Die Hard 4 from a panasonic dvd and picture is perfect, nice and crisp with no motion problems at all. Its the same with the PS3. Modern Warfare looks great and Blu Rays are superb.

I was amazed by the SD picture from the onboard freeview. I like it better than my Samsung ( this maybe becasue of the slightly smaller screen ) looks crisp and clear again with no noticeable smearing.

The EPG ( PROGRAMME GUIDE ) is suberb. There are seperate lists for T.V. and radio and much better layout than the Samsung.....is a pleasure to use. Te remote is functional and responsive, again have heard some moans about this but it is perfectly adequate.

The spec is great for the money. 100hz works well as well as the upscaling of standard definition pictures.

Read What Hi fi regularly and the Toshiba's never get a top rating...this is a great looking set with loads of extras and is easy to use with a great picture from whatever source...In my view it gets top marks and on top of that, it is very good value for money....

Buy with confidence, Good work Toshiba.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant TV, excellent features and picture 25 July 2009
Excellent picture straight from the box, can be improved with minor changes in preferences in menus. I am running standard def through sky and the picture is incredibly good with the 100hz functionality and advanced smoothing etc. The feeling of 'depth' (and panoramic views) in the picture with the screen this size is brilliant. Recommended -- buy one.

By Paul O
I've had this Toshiba for about a week now and I'm seriously impressed with it. The amount of features you get (37-inch, full 1080p HD, 100Hz, Freeview, 4 HDMI ports, USB Divx etc) is impressive enough, but it's got excellent picture quality to back it up. The sound is also better than what I thought an LCD TV could produce, although it's now plugged into my surround hi-fi and it's now beautiful.

The main draw for getting this TV was it's reputed stellar performance on standard definition sources, and it does not disappoint. Toshiba's Resolution+ feature really does bring up my SD Sky and Freeview pictures to not far off HD quality. Better than a lot of others I've seen. I can't wait to see what it does in proper HD, so a blu-ray set-up will be imminent. The 100Hz processing does a very good on the picture in keeping everything looking natural and significantly reduces motion blur, although I still detect some blur occasionly but enough to bother me. My live football viewing has been very enjoyable.

Another bonus is that you can play your DivX movies, MP3s and photos straight off your USB stick and SD cards (photos only I think), and it works very well. The Freeview TV guide is also clear. The remote is good and doesn't feel cheap like some other brands. You can also use it for a Toshiba DVD or other Regza-Link devices.

Toshiba Regza flat-screen TVs never seem to get mentioned in the same way as the Sony Bravias, Panasonic Vieras etc. But this is one best kept secrets that could change that. It might not have quite the same sexy styling as the others, but I like it's simple sleek black look. A quality TV for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars See It My Way 29 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase
As with most reviewers I researched this purchase for weeks before committing to this Toshiba model. I think it's important to put reviews into context. I was upgrading from a Sharp 26 inch HD-Ready LCD TV from 2005, not a CRT model. So my expectations were realistic. Also I decided to pay a bit more for a 100Hz model.

Also, all my reception is via digital antenna and Freeview. No HD, all SD. My family tend to view the TV from around 6-8 feet away.

First, the picture is very good but does need a little time for both you and the TV to adjust automatically (light, pre-sets, etc.). I noticed an improvement minutes later and the picture is considerably better at 6-8 ft than 1-2 ft. I did view various brands at a famous department store and can say that perhaps the Samsung models appeared to have better blacks. But honestly the Toshiba is as about as good as any of the other brands in the LCD segment.

Second, the Resolution + coupled with 100Hz has made watching football, for example, more enjoyable. I have been surprised at the sharpness of the players' faces. Yes, there's still a little bit of blur, a bit of halo around the ball. I'm not sure one can do too much better without an LED screen on 200Hz. And I wasn't prepared to pay for that quality. Also have watched a recent film shot in black/white, "Good Night and Good Luck", on DVD via an X-box and I thought it was outstanding. The gamers in my family seem happy, but that to me is slightly more about size of screen than anything else. I'm not a gamer, so please no emails.

Third, the price I paid makes Toshiba the best value by far. Had to wait a while for it to come back in stock at that price but worth it.

Update May 2013: I have finally purchased an HD PVR to go with this HD TV. No surprises. The HD signal comes through very well on this Toshiba, now well over three years old.
