Pretty damn good
on 14 February 2014
I'd had my eye on this TV for a couple of months and a few days ago decided to bite the bullet and raid my savings account. As a student, a 32 inch TV is certainly an unnecessary luxury and I had to think long and hard before purchasing.
I'm very satisfied with this TV. At £200 for a whole 32 inches, and from a reputable brand at that, this is a steal. I'd looked at some of the cheaper alternatives at Tesco and Asda, and the difference in quality really is striking. For £30 or £40 more, get yourself this Toshiba. The picture quality really is remarkable for this price.
A few of the reviews on Amazon made me hesitant to buy this TV. One review claims that the "lag time" of the television is so poor that the TV suffers from a "ghosting" effect when gaming or watching fast-moving television. This is not the case. After some research, I've discovered that a response time of 20ms is not at all poor. I've played plenty of games on this television, including CoD, Payday 2 and GTA V, and have experienced no problems whatsoever with lagging or ghosting.
One or two reviews criticise the sound quality of the TV. Again, I don't consider this to be a noticeable problem. If it hadn't been mentioned by other reviewers, it's not something I would have noticed. The sound quality is certainly adequate and I haven't had any problems.
If you're running on a very tight budget, this is the TV for you. It's a good measure better than the cheaper supermarket alternatives and really holds its own against my friend's more expensive Samsung TV. This is not a purchase you'd regret.
