Does anybody here have this tv? Hows the picture quality.

Right now i am trying to decide between this and Hannspree xv. which maybe not nice as this tv. but is a lot cheaper.

Any suggestions?
#3
A very good price for this Toshiba 32" LCD TV, which is in my opinion the best 32" LCD TV after the equivalent Sony Bravia!

If you mean budget 32" then perhaps. But this set doesn't compare to the Panasonic/Sony/Philip screens closer to the £800 mark and is also bellow Toshiba's own flagship WLT68 - perhaps that's the one you were thinking of?

Conclusion

You have to consider the Toshiba 323030D in context, which is as a remarkably cheap LCD panel. We never expected this unit to match the performance of some higher end offerings and for around £500 the overall standard of that performance is good. So if you are on a budget and want a competent 32in LCD TV then the Toshiba 32C3030D is well worth a look.

so what do you reckon, is it worth it to spend £150 extra on this set compared to this

I find it difficult to say to someone else since I've never seen the Hanspree in action...

However, go to any John Lewis store and you can see the Tosh in action. The Hanspree is a complete gamble in my eyes. Even if you had to read user reviews on the Hanspree, what's to say what the user has for comparison? Sure, if you're upgrading from a 15-year old CRT the LCD will look great in comparison :whistling: People have different standards, preferences and expectations so it's difficult to compare like for like.

Unless you can see a Hanspree in action there will always be an element of risk. At least you can go check out the Tosh and know what you're buying into or choose not to buy it based on that. I've seen the Tosh in action and it's very decent.

I've never been into a bookies in my life so you can imagine what my decision would be :thumbsup:

Thanks for your help. Anybody else here who have seen both this and hanspree set in action?

The Hanspree won't come close to the Tosh in terms of picture quality.

This is a good deal for those on a less than £500 budget.
#11
Is this Toshiba better than the 32WL66 on offer for £400 last month on Play.com...and how does it compare to the £400 Panasonic from Amazon, which was also on offer previously?
#12
It's a lot more recent than the recently posted Panasonic (if I'm thinking of the same one as you - it didn't even have a digital tuner).

It's newer than the WLT66, which has been replaced by the WLT68. This is basically the budget alternative to the WLT68... which brings this and the WLT66 very close. I've seen both in action but not side by side for a picture comparison, in fact it's been several months since I saw the WLT66 in action. From memory of the WLT66, it runs very close between the two. I'd say the C3030D has deeper blacks, other than that they're pretty much tit for tat. The fact the C3030D looks a lot sleeker, in my opinion, would swing it for me. Though it depends on the price difference, of course.

I initially thought that it was the Toshiba WLT68 in the OP, hence my comment about it being second only to the Bravia...my girlfriend's got the WLT68 and it's fantastic to say the least. I've currently got the WLT66 which is good but not great, so I assumed that this was released as a cheaper alternative to the WLT68.

I have one of these in the bedroom and the 37c3030d in the lounge and I really can't fault them.

Some people say that they're a budget set but they thrash the pants off other budget sets.

I bought both mine form http://www.digitaldirect.co.uk/products_moreinfo3/index.asp?product_id=12649

This is a great set and great price - fill your boots. If you check my previous posts you might still find the wall mount I grabbed from Amazon.

Bought the Toshiba 32WLT68 from John Lewis Bristol yesterday.

£799 in store with 5yr warranty but got a price match for £579 with Crampton and Moore.

£140 more than TOSHIBA 32C3030D but a better screen and 5yr warranty. very happy

I'm glad to see it's "ready for de Hud"...

i bought this from empore direct with the £50 off voucher code from here (ova a month ago) so i got it for £424 inc del. I got a 3yr gurantee with it also..

its a MARVELLOUS tv, the colour depth is IMENSEEE. Once you setup the screen settings your digital tuner will be crystal. I use it for TV and PS3 and i have to say it is defo faultless. teh clarity and picture quality for the price was amazing. defo recommend it... my friend bought 2 more and he is equally happy. It came rated 5 stars on what! magazine i believe... i had an extratc somewhere but cant find it... but i could if some 1 wanted to see the article.

But you can get the 32C from John Lewis with a 5 year warranty also and £110 cheaper than the WLT68.

And the budget tag is wrong, they were all around the £800 mark at the begining of last year compared to the 2 grand sets which were high end, there's been massive price reductions. You'll find most of them use the same panels anyway, Sony/Samsung for example.

After a long decision over my next HDTV Set between sharp, samsung and Toshiba i got the Toshiba 42X3030D. The new x series are full 1080p and it retails at £1299 but i got it for £799 which i thought was a bargain!

How does the JL price match work? Will they match any online price? Can you take a print out to one of their stores and they'll match it or do they do it on their website? What if said online store only offer a 1-year warranty?
#22
As an alternative you could also check out the Samsung Le32R88BD at Dixons (I think theres a code for a little off the price). Its about £50 more expensive, but a better TV IMO.

No they only match shelf prices from real stores, all info on JL site.

Only the online prices that can be found in store, like empire direct :thumbsup:
It doesnt matter about the warranty.
#25
I bought this TV for pretty much the same price as this one (ED with voucher made it £420-ish but I got a 3yr warranty for £20 extra).

I have been hugely impressed with this set. My friend recently bought a Samsung for around the same price and this really blows it away.

Spend a bit of time adjusting the settings though, the settings out of the box are 'not very good' (to put it politely) :D

Does the store have to be local?
#27
No,

I previously got JL Southhampton to match Empire Direct store in Bolton (I think) - just give the JL customer services the store number

The store price matched must have the item on display, in a physical store and in stock

If you phone your nearest JL and give them all the details they will call you back - usually in a couple of days and they confirm their offer in writing too. If you get no joy from your JL try another

Often well worth it for the 5 yr warranty

I price matched a 37inch TV - 37c3030D for £679 when it was £850 in store!

Does this set do 1:1 pixel mapping over vga or at least have one of the hdmi's with a dvi:hdmi compatable socket???

I had the wlt66 32 inch and it didnt do this so i had to either have a rubbish pic for my pc or a 1:1 mapped image only using 2/3 of the screen (1024x768)

the WLT 68 was a little better but still cant do 1360x768

unless this has been fixed with this newer set, anyone wanting a tv for pc use should look elsewhere....... asuming its equivalent to the wlt66 however, this problem aside i LOVED the wlt66 and if pc use isnt a problem then go for it.

personally if it was me i would spend a touch more and get a Sammy R88 or if built in sound quality may be important (the R88 sound really is poor) a Sony S2050. both of these do 1:1 pixel mapping (the only only over VGA however)
#30
got mine a couple of months ago for £470 through John Lewis with 5 year guarantee.

Get John Lewis store to price match empire direct for this price (or whatever it is now) so you can get the 5 year warranty as standard.

Not a bad TV!!!!
#31
This is a very good tv for the money in my opinion. I wanted a 32" LCD for less than £500 and got this from Dixons as stated for ~£440 on Friday 3 Aug. Delivered on time as arranged in good order, everything working as it should. I'm using this in the bedroom, its replaced an old CRT Toshiba and Philips PC monitor. The digital freeview works well, dvds look good and PC games are incredible (after ditching the 17" monitor I had). If you want to spend another £300 you can get a better LCD panel or if you want to save £100 you could get a worse LCD panel. But for me this is just right.
#32
Could anyone tell me whether the Toshiba 32C3030D or the Samsung R88 produces the best SD pictures? I have Sky digital and won't be upgrading to HD for a while so there's no point getting a tv that only looks good with HD sources.

From what i have read. This toshiba set offer one of the best SD picture performance and is definatly better than R88 as far as SD is concerned.
#34
I can only agree, the Tosh produces great SD pictures, I really can't recommend it any more for the price.
#35
Regarding this Toshiba, some settings that get a good picture which I found on a review website:
3D Colour Management = off
Active Backlight = off
Backlight = 95 (this also removes the lcd buzzing noise)
Contrast=100
Brightness = 50
Colour=40
Tint = 0
Sharpness = -10
Black Stretch = off
MPEG NR = low
DNR = low
Colour Temp = Warm (up to your eyes)

This worked well for me, giving flesh tones a more realistic look. Getting the right settings here makes the difference between thinking this is a good lcd tv or mediocre.

I think it's a great idea treating the above as default settings rather than the awful ones that come with it, but don't be scared to deviate from them :) The same settings won't suit all lighting environments, viewing distances and angles angles or indeed people. Be sure to find what works best for you.

that tv is 849.99 on currys

what codes you use to get it for that price?

:whistling:
#39
I bought it on the 14th and it was "web price £714" less two discount codes of £60 off £600 each which are on here in the vouchers sections bringing it down to £594 delivered...unfortunately one of those codes has now expired I think.
#40
oh just checked the currys site and the "web price" is gone! now i'm even happier! sorry though if I got your hopes up.
