Good find, it's only a matter of time before the 1080p brigade start knocking this.

You should know that the reviews were dated nearly 2 years ago, when LCD standards were a lot lower than they are today. Unless an LCD TV review was given within the last 6 months or so, I wouldn't vest much faith in it.
#5
There seems to be a few people experiencing probs with this set as well... Tempting, but I think I'd like to see one in the flesh before making any decisions!

This set is nearly 2yrs old!

I bought this set second hand very recently for £275 because it was in pristine condition and, mostly, I can't afford a brand new screen right now but still wanted an upgrade from my 28" Sony CRT (26" viewable). It is a previous model but it's performance was better than I expected given its age, especially once I got it home and properly calibrated. I expected current LCDs to have it buried for performance, but this wasn't really the case.

For £275 it was an easy choice for me but for £400 you're very close to the price of a new Samsung R88 and I think that would be a better investment, personally.

we only knock 720p > 40". But as the early poster said, this set is old so go for the Sammy.

Superb LCD. I bought this about 18 months ago for £800 online. At this time the instore price was £1199 at Curry's. Amazing how cheap it is now. I am moving to a 46" LCD when i find a good one at the right price and was thinking of selling this one. No point now, just move it to the bedroom.

I would recommend to anyone looking for a 32" screen.

I've added heat, after all of those 'BUT ITS TWO YEARS OLD ?! ' post's

The OP was pretty clear re the age of award's, So at least give something similar in price / award's to compare before any more 'Two year's old' post's ? ?

Bought this tv for £475 last November and for sd, gaming and DVD (sd/BR) it is great, but to use as a monitor for a media center for example it is a pain. Check the avforums something to do with 1:1 pixel mapping I had mine working fine or so I thought adjusted something and now the only res that works (no borders) is 1024 x 768. For a tv it is fine for a media center tv avoid. :w00t:

As I mentioned in my post, something like this would be perfect. It's a little more but definitely worth it. Quidco, too :thumbsup:

Bought this set in Oct '06 under a great offer at Currys (cost about £600) and we are very pleased with it. Looks excellent with the 360 and DVD player. Reports of buzzing problems I believe but had no problems there.

Only main criticism is the VGA support isn't particularly great, you can't do proper full-sized wide-screen. I'm sure there are other TVs that can probably do better in that department.

Also the EPG software on the Freeview isn't particular outstanding and can be a little niggling to use, but that's a minor criticism and I don't use it much anyway.

Dont buy it, its not 1080p, if you buy a tv even a 10" lcd its gotta be a 1080p, so dont get it, it needs to be 1080p i dunno why maybe because everyone says its needs to be even tho they dont know what they are on about, jumpng on the bandwaggon me thinks

1080p rules :whistling:


Voted hot , good price :)
#15
I bought the 42WLT66 and one of the HDMI sockets didnt work. Not impressed. Didnt have time to phone/moan/beg for a replacement. Not impressed.
#16
Loads of buzzing problems reported with this set and it is now old tech. Several updated versions of this set have been introduced now and i'm surprised this one is still available. Voted cold sorry. And nothing to do with 1080p either.

I assume the second "Not impressed" was aimed at your own attitude? Not sure you can blame Toshiba for you not bothering to sort out the TV, ocassional faulty products are a fact of life and you wouldn't have had any problems sorting it out.

Sorry, I know that this is has been said before, but this really is old technology now.

I bought his set for my mum and dad 16 months ago and they have been reasonably pleased with it, but I sure wouldn't buy it now, not when I can get a current model with better spec for only a little more.
#20
It was a good set in its day, but it's like any electronic device, two years is a long time and a more modern set will have better features.

However it is reasonable value if you get a working set - some have had problems.

There is a long thread for setting up here:

http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=327729&highlight=32WLT66

which may be helpful to those who do but this TV ;-)
#21
This is a good set - I bought one about 18 months ago - but it isn't a current model (it's been superceded by the 32WLT68). For an extra few pounds Digital Direct will sell you a Toshiba 32C3035, which is a much newer model and by all accounts just as good.
#22
I've had this tv for 12 months and am thoroughly satisfied with it. Fine freeview picture and good connectivity. Bought mine from JL for £699 with the 5yr warranty. It's wall mounted in the bedroom. No problems whatsoever.

Compared to the Panasonic series 10 plasma downstairs, it puts up a good pitcture performance. Sound quality isnt great, but the optional subwoofer can be had off ebay for half price and helps dynamics greatly.

At that price, an excellent second set. Voted hot.
#23
This is a set I almost bought 18 months ago. In the end I ended up going for a 42" Panasonic plasma - which I thought would be too big for my rooom but now I am wondering if a50" would be okay!
As well as the mentioned buzzing problems and problems with pixel mapping with gaming... it looks a bit dull/ugly in comarison with the newer models that were coming out at the time - in particular its replacement the WLT68.
It is an okay price but you could have got a new Tosh (3030? model) on Christmas Day from Dixons for £360 (£399 now I think but out of stock) and it may be worth comparing the two.

The buzzing problems was with the 37", the 32" had nothing but praise, however as has been said the technology is no spring chicken.

#28
I have this TV (bought it2 years ago) and it is still going strong. I was and still am very pleased with it. I am currently running a 360 and an upscaling DVD player (Toshiba) and I have had no faults with this.

I bought one of these second hand a few weeks ago and it's a great TV, although it's now an older model.
#31
is this better than the JVC on sale at Argos (also £400):

which is newer? better spec?
#32
I have had this LCD nearly 2 years now and paid £899 from [url]www.empiredirect.co.uk[/url] the reason I bought it was in its time What HI-FI magazine said this was the best 32" LCD TV out there back then still better than alot of set's out there today especially with the correct equipment on it like QED Scart & QED Hdmi which I have on my Toshiba HD-XE1 and it is S**T HOT:thumbsup:

See my previous post...
#34
does anyone know if this is an older model?
#35
Yes, it is - as has been stated several times in this topic. It's now been superceded by the 32WLT68.

Yes, it's been superseded. I think it's the last model, rather than the current one.

Why would it not still be working after 2 years of usage?

My 10 year old CRT [”fat” screen not flat screen] Toshiba TV that has moved house with us seven times since initial purchase is still functioning too.

I bought this 2 years ago for £860. How pices have fallen. Anyway, dont expect to watch footie in SD on it as motion blur is a significant problem.

Picked up Phlips 32PFL7862D/10 on Sunday from Comet for £499 (was £799 then £599):
http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/product.do?sku=414131&tab=specification

It's a 100Hz set with response times of 4ms, 550cd/m2 brightness 1200:1 contrast ratio, 8000:1 Dyanmic screen contrast (whatever these things mean - it is great thro' on-board freeview especially BBC1 & 2 and also really impressed with Transformers via a non-HD DVD player).

Reviews are a bit thin on the ground as it's only available it seems from Comet or Laskys but AVForums has a few very satisfied purchasers.

Unable to find a discount code for Comet but it has tracked thro' quidco at £17.50 (click & collect).
