    4.0 out of 5 stars Great tv all-round - 4 stars from me 25 July 2010
    By S Potts
    I bought this a few weeks ago, its very nice. The picture is good, only 50HZ but i didn't particularly notice motion blur during the world cup final which was a nice suprise. The volume doesn't go very high and the speakers are poor. Apart from that the tv is great, nice remote, good EPG, BBCHD, ITVHD, CHANNEL4HD and BBC1HD. It takes a few secs for HD channels to appear but apart from that, the sound quality and volume level problems its great.

    I've tried bluray on it, freeview hd and it works nicely. Uses quite alot less power compared to most brands which is nice.

    Seperate speakers would eliminate the poor sound and remove the relatively low volume problem. Will save up for some decent 5.1 speakers.

    Firmware is upgradable via Ethernet cable or via the tv aerial, searching for updates via the tv aerial takes quite a while. You need to disable 1 of the ethernet options i found in order for it to be able to connect to the server. There was no update available when i tried btw.

    The stand swivels about 30 degrees btw, which is handy if you have chairs at different sides of the room, you can aim it towards you if no-one is at that side of the room.

    Would have been nice to have red/yellow/white connectors on the back aswell as the side as my mum doesn't like the Wii cables plugged in all the time, there's none on the back so i plug them in the side as and when needed.

    Regarding the person who said there's no difference between SD and Freeview HD, he needs some glasses, the difference is massive, even 12 feet away with fairly poor eyesight.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, Stunning TV, We Love It 12 Jan 2011
    By The Dunelmian VINE VOICE
    Verified Purchase
    We've been looking to upgrade from our old Sony CRT for some time and I have been browsing reviews, forums and technical reviews. In the end it was a toss up between a Sony 403 or the Tosh. Nearly all of our viewing right now is SD, and from what I have read the Resolution+ makes this the best upscaling TV of the two. Also, some of the professional reviewers mentioned that Tosh use some top factory panels in certain sets in this range.

    After a nightmare with CityLink couriers (Amazon were great, but ought to ditch CityLink pdq) we finally set it up, and have to say it is stunning. The sound is every bit as good as our old Sony CRT and happily goes up to a volume level which would upset the neighbours. We cannot hear any backlight buzz. So I'm sorry I cannot agree with the other reviewers who marked it down for sound or buzz.

    The set up out of the box was easy. Plug it in, let it autotune, and off you go. "Simples" as the meercat says.

    There's loads of connectivity (we really needed 2 scarts which LG and Samsung just don't seem to do), and with the full HD capability we feel this TV is well future-proofed.

    From what I can see there are loads of display tweaking options, along with some pre-sets for non techies among us. I will probably have to spend some time fiddling with the colour, brightness, contrast etc but I think that is true of most TVs these days.

    It isn't too chunky, looks far more expensive than it is (well, Amazon's price is really good isn't it) and was quite easy to put together with all the connectors easy to access.

    So, I have to say this is a fabulous family TV and unless you are going to fork out silly money for the latest whistles and bells it will be hard to beat.

    5.0 out of 5 stars MAIN TV 19 Jun 2010
    Verified Purchase
    i bought this tv as my older lcd is about 5 years old,
    i was perticulary interested in this model as this had the very latest
    freeviewHD proseser built in, it can be pricy as a seprate set top box.
    HD tv is shown when you directly plug in to a standard ariel socket
    with digital tv.
    pictures supurb especialy with the ps3 console,movies are amazing.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Great TV but it not perfect 21 Oct 2010
    By John H
    This TV is a great bargin at 399 with freeview HD built in. I chose it because I have another 32" Toshiba which has been outstanding thus far, however this new one falls some way short.

    The main issue is that sometimes the ordinary freeview picture does not look as sharp as I have been used to. The HD takes care of this but as yet most of freeview is not in HD. Studio and news channel programmes appear fine as do the satellite channels viewed through the scart, so I am guessing it could be something to do with the tuner.

    Other other niggles are :-

    1. the length of time it takes to come on from standby
    2. the fact that even though all my accessories are set to widescreen or 16:9 format the TV seems to default to 4:3 on my DVD recorder (this could be down to the DVD ?)
    3. I only have one hdmi unit attached at present but have been getting a rather disturbing reverb sound from some of the base tones. I am still working on trying to adjust the sound settings so early days yet.

    One final comment, don't expect to be able to just plug this in and sit down and enjoy, you will get much better results if you take the time to set it up to your own taste rather than relying on the Toshiba defaults.

    I am unable to comment on motion blur as I never watch sport and most of what I do watch is fairly sedate, however if this is important to you, you may wish to consider a refresh rate of greater that the 50mhz that this TV has.

    Overall I am not disappointed, but for a little bit more effort it could have been outstanding like my other 32" Toshiba.
