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.

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.

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 !
JOHN.

The 40XF355 is a stunning looking LCD..it doesnt actually look much bigger than my old 37inch..so if your hoping for a big looking upgrade then you'd be better off going perhaps for the 46" version. That said the High def picture running through this tv is nothing short of stunning. I have both an hd-dvd player and ps3,so can play blu-ray and hd dvd and both running at either 1080i or 1080p looks amazing. One thing i will say is that if you are playing an hd signal please use the "exact scan" mode as this maps the image out 1.1 as it is coded resulting in no downscaling and loss of image. When you use the regular setting you can see the tv has cropped a small portion of the image. All you 720p users out there take heed as this happens on the 720 signal on any HD TV..these are the benefits of 1080p full hd tv's.

One slight niggle is standard dvd's didnt look as good as on my old lcd,even upscaled to 1080i/p..it depends on what movie you are watching but maybe coz its a 1080 res it puts more fake pixels in..still its not that bad and still gives a pretty good standard dvd image. Also freeview/anolougue signal are decent but i have seen better on other lcd's..a small niggle

The sound is also pretty reasonable once you have tweaked the myriad of settings and are certainly good enough for tv but dont expect it to rival yiur local multiplex or a 5.1 sound system.

Toshiba have rolled out a stunning LCD here,an attractive designd,stunning HD quality pic and decent sound make this a LCD winner!!

Update!! I can confirm what another eviwer said here about this unit. Light can be seen bleeding in from the two top corners and can be a little distracting at times. The other reviewer said that toshiba said it wasnt a fault but might call them myself to clarify the situation. Please beware of this if this will put you off this set.
