Great all round tv,
This review is from: Toshiba Regza 32AV615DB 32-inch Widescreen HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview (2012 model) (Electronics)After much searching and reading numerous reviews on lcd tv's I finally settled on buying a Toshiba but when I went to purchase the tv there was a link to this one which was the newer model. Although there was no reviews for this model I took a gamble and ordered it anyway. I am very pleased I did.
The tv is for my bedroom and I love it. The picture has been great on digital tv, movies and (after a little playing with the settings) the picture is truely amazing when playing my xbox 360. For the price I think the picture is great, I really can't fault it.
Soundwise if i was using it as my main tv in the living room I would probably invest in a surround sound system to get really deep sound but for a bedroom tv it is really impressive. I turn off bass boost when watching normal tv, turn it on when watching movies and when playing the xbox I turn on bass boost and surround sound to get a realy loud deep sound that totally immerses me in the gameplay.
My only criticism of the tv (which may be down to me missing a setting but I'm not sure) is that when using the EPG and going through the channels to see what is on the tv switches to the highlighted channel. This is my only annoyance with the set as it means I can't watch one channel and see whats on the others at the sametime.
Overall a great tv at a great price that you can have up and tuned in about 10mins that includes fitting the stand

The EPG on the freeview does that with all freeview boxes I have ever had so it isn't a setting its just how it is im afraid

I use it mainly for COD 4 online and the clarity and detail is great. I've actually been doing a lot better since I bought this TV. i would recommend setting up a user defined setting and increase the brightness and contrast and then the detail is amazing

Out of interest did you get the settings for your TV off of a website? I've heard there's a couple of sites out there that have tuning manuals for thousands of TV's.
Cheers for the review though, it's great to get an idea of the quality.

Sounds like a very good TV at a very reasonable price. One query - what is "COD 4 online?" I'm sure I should know!

Hi D. Weir,
It sounds like you have made some setting changes to get a great picture quality, please would you be kind enough to let me know if you changed anything other than "brightness at 80 contrast at 90 and colour 65 and the picture size as Native", as I must be doing something wrong as I'm noticing a fair amount of jaggies around the edges of things, and some channels/programmes appear blurred (quite noticeable on the images in the 8 boxes in Sky News Active), also some channels resize to 4:3 to which I have noticed there is an option to stop the resizing but when I choose this the pictures appear blurry. A bit cheeky I know, but if you have any advice on what I should change any of the menu settings to in order to get optimal picture quality from this TV, I would be most grateful as there appears to be so much that can be changed and I don't want to get into a mess.

Sorry I think I was a bit vague when stating my set up. For watching TV I use the in built Dynamic setting on wide, Movies I use the movie setting.
The user defined settings I only use for playing the Xbox 360

I've just ordered this TV for use with a media center, Xbox 360,etc. One thing I cant find the answer too about it however. For custom settings does it remember them per input? For example could I have seperate custom settings for the scart(SKY,PS2) and the VGA(360) and HDMI(Media center). On the TV I have at the moment, a 19" acoustic solutions set it only has 1 custom setting that applies to all outputs. Meaning it constantly needs changing depending on what is being used.
