4.0 out of 5 stars Good Panel Let Down By WiFi and Smart Services, 21 July 2012
This review is from: Toshiba 40TL963B 40-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LED 3D Smart TV with Freeview (Old model) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
The good
Lovely looking, thin led television
Uniform blacks
No backlight bleeding on my set
Crisp picture and no blurring on fast moving scenes
Toshiba UK support (I've used them so speak from experience)

The bad
Woefully bad wifi (my settings were never saved, or the optionally purchased never connected after the set was turned off/on)
Smart services nowhere near the standard of competators
EPG rubbish

This is a great set at the right price but if you want smart services better look elsewhere.

Depends on what services you want. Samsung and LG seem to have a good variety but it depends on what you're after.

The avforms web site is also a good place to get initial advice from a large AV focused community. I use the 40TL963B for iPlayer and streaming from a NAS server and decoding but the interface is slow and not the best in my opinion. Internet access from a TV isn't the best way and you would need an existing connection too. I would still say the LG and Samsung would be a good to place to start and try out in a shop to see how you get on. They have quite a few models so price / features come into play.
