Not a REAL Toshiba! Beware!
on 11 May 2013
This TV is a genuine Toshiba product, however, beware. It is simply a model Toshiba have had re-badged for them. It's a product by Vestel, which is a company that makes most of those supermarket TVs you see for sale in Morrisons, Tesco etc. It's build exactly the same as a 40" Full HD LED generic TV. There's no difference, aside from the badge!
This is the same for many other Toshiba models. It's only when you get into their Smart TV range that you find them making their own gear.
You will be getting poor picture quality, poor build quality, poor software/UI quality, poor sound quality and very poor reliability.
I am a repairer of TVs and Vestel have such a high failure rate it's disgraceful for Toshiba to be re-badging them. Most Vestel TVs don't make the 3 year mark in my experience.
