Product Description

If ever an LCD TV defined desirability it would be Toshiba's new REGZA XF Series. Stunning, head-turning looks are the result of cutting edge engineering techniques presenting an extremely narrow picture frame, finished in glorious piano-black. Once you've stopped admiring its beauty, turn it on to find a powerful 1080p LCD TV with Active Vision picture-processing, generating a totally immersive audio-visual experience. With 3x HDMI inputs the REGZA XF Series is a future design icon....

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a great TV 9 Dec 2007
I am really happy with this TV. The picture is wonderful and most of the menus are well thoughtout.

The thin Pictureframe allows you to have a much bigger screen for the same overall dimensions that a much smaller screen takes up. In addition when used in a darkened room the picture just appears to be floating in the air!

I would recommend that all users spend some time fine tuning the various picture levels to suit their own preferences.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful / baffling 15 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase
In the stampede to replace that old clunky TV box with a shiny new flatscreen, you're faced with not only a myriad of choices but a minefield of decisions over screen size for room size , HD type, plasma v LCD, connections and not least the other kit you'll feel bound to upgrade to match it all.

The Toshiba is a fantastic set both in picture quality and design. If you're looking for a new flatscreen TV at a great price and you're not one to trawl the press and internet reviews that'll inevitably keep changing and confusing your mind anyway, then go buy this now.

Delivery from Amazon is excellent and all you have to do is connect the pedestal stand which is easy and quick. And don't be put off by backlight bleed mentioned in some reviews, you won't see it.

As for screen size it does maximise its space with the picture frame surround, so if you're worried that a 40" is too big for your room it fills a standard 37" set size and is perfect for a viewing distance of 2.5 - 3.5m.

HDMI cables are a good investment - there's nothing in the box to connect it properly to your Sky or Virgin box - and the QED Qunex HDMI cable is much better than the high street stores cheap ranges. Hi def broadcasts are crystal and what this TV was made for but standard TV still looks great even if football or fast moving sports are slightly disappointing showing some blur.

Connected to a standard DVD player with a scart cable will still produce a great picture (and much better than standard TV broadcasts) but a HD DVD player (with that extra HDMI cable) will up the ante much further. The TV's integrated speakers are very good for day to day viewing but connected to a hifi or surround system will add to your viewing experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Class 21 Feb 2008
Verified Purchase
I checked out the stores first and after watching a high definItion DVD of The mATRIX on this Toshiba I WAS blown away. The store was charging 1,149.99 + 200.00 for 1+2 years cover. Hahaha, very funny between amazon and myself I saved 300!!!
Well I was a little apprehensive about ordering serious kit online. Tic toc, tic toc I received emails and phone calls within 2 days of ordering (very reassuring) and now I have the set on a stand in my living room. Delivery was excellent with a courtesy phone call 45mins ahead of time.

Now the T.V is exceptional. You can fully customize the settings even down to the cool blue glow on the front.
One of my first concerns was light bleed in letterbox mode mentioned in two present reviews. I killed the lights, put it in a Standard Definition DVD The Chronicles of Riddick and guess what..........................................
no bleed. Black as black the letterbox was/is. As for the q.u.a.l.i.t.y wooo weeee! I can barely wait for the blu-ray playing PS3, which should be winging its way to me now.

Watching normal T.V say virgin cable one can see that the SD varies from program to programe. Old early
sit coms seem dull and washed out, old documentries look faded, but in general some current stuff I would
grade from 5/10 to 9/10. But hey slap in one of your favourite films and leave the main stream behind!

Ok before I go some tried and tested settings from another forum:

Active Backlight on
Cinema mode on
3d colour mgt on
Backlight 29
Contrast 88
Brightness 60
Color 46
Tint 0
Sharpness 0
Black stretch off
Stable sound on
Dnr auto
Colour temp warm

Exact scan when using 1080p source

Ok I must go. To do what?

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! AN EXCELLENT BUY 25 Jan 2008
Ordered from amazon.co.uk on Tuesday with the no delivery charge option, the stand arrived Friday (actually Thursday, but nobody was in) and the TV 8.30am Monday (delivery slot 7am - 9.30am with a phone call from the van driver at 8am to say he was on his way).
Delivery man said "this is a heavy one" which I took as a good sign. I was rather taken aback to have to lay my new TV face down on a quilt to attach the pedestal stand, though this was easy enough with the supplied bolts and Allen key.
It looks superb on the classy glass stand (also easy to assemble). Once factory settings for brightness, contrast, backlight and sharpness were turned down, the picture is superb, particularly with my Toshiba HD-EP35 player.
For a large quality TV on a lovely solid stand for well under a grand, this is an excellent buy. The efficient delivery from Amazon (never bought such a large item from them before) was the icing on the cake.

5.0 out of 5 stars as expected -absolutely brilliant ! 20 Jan 2008
I have always had Toshiba televisions , so when i decided to go for an lcd flal screen tv -it had to be Toshiba. I read up about them and looked at customer reviews and also visited many retailers to see them on display.THIS HAPPENED OVER TWO MONTHS !
Immediately upon spotting the 40XF355DB,I & my wife fell in love with it.
The picture is sensational even when playing normal dvds on a normal player- it is quite breathtaking .the set up and controls are simplicity itself,even for a 60 yr old like me !The very slim bezel enhances the appearance greatly and it takes up only the same space as some smaller screen Tvs . my friends & neighbours are extremely impressed - so is my wife !!
I whole heartedly recommend this model - 3 hdmi sockets - 2 scart sockets
and plenty of audio / speaker sockets etc - to everyone who may be considering the purchase of a Tv of this type .(buy it from amazon- I found them to be by far the cheapest on the market- and we experienced a great delivery service ! If the price goes down within 30 days of order dispatch- amazon will refund the reduction )CANT GET BETTER THAN THAT !
