Packed with Toshiba?own Active Vision LCD processing power, this 37?CD TV instantly gives you Freeview with an eight-day TV guide. This gloss black screen is also HD Ready, so you can attach the latest hi-def equipment. For a bit more info about Toshiba's Active Vision see Toshiba's description below:


Active Vision:
We constantly modify our technology and Active Vision LCD is no exception. It is now better than ever; delivering high quality screen images by enhancing the four core elements of a television picture: Colour ?PEG noise reduction and 8-BIT colour gamut processing produces screen images with much smoother colour gradation and a reduction in the ?ocking?ffect that is often noticeable with large areas of colour of a similar shade. The ?ocking?ffect is something we are all aware of and is caused by the decompression of MPEG images. Detail ?oth high definition and standard definition images are produced with increased detail compared to conventional LCD televisions. Complex up-scaling technology allows every available pixel to be utilised and intricate lines and detail are produced without jagged edges thanks to complex de-interlacing technology. Movement ?ur Real Speed Continuous Progressive technology removes motion blur and maintains the benefit offered by progressive scan over interlaced image technology. This giant leap forward in the rendering of fast moving objects is particularly attractive to sports fans and overcomes the blurring often found with conventional LCD televisions. Contrast ?ctive Vision LCD constantly monitors and adjusts the contrast levels required by the original signal. The system works in harmony with our Dynamic Contrast feature to produce the optimum contrast levels; dramatically increasing black levels in dark scenes without compromising bright white levels in lighter more colourful scenes.

Good TVs but odd to see no model number quoted?
#2
"HD ready" apparently, rather than "Full HD" (1080p). Its still a good deal but you can get a 1080p Technika from Tesco for a shade less than this price (I have it and its a cracking tv).

I'm surprised that ASDA haven't put more details on. If I were the suspcious sort I'd think they were trying to shift older tech (i.e. not 1080) by not immediately disclosing the full specs. Its lucky I'm not suspicious, I guess.
#3
I wouldn't be suprised if this is the 1080i model that I have at the mo. A good price for a great TV.
#4
Personally if I had to choose over a Technika or a Toshiba I know where my money would be going....

I just tried calling but they have no idea as its new for the next catalogue....if I get any more info i'll update here unless someone beats me too it.

Also anyone who is interested try Amazon they have the 37XV555DB for £449...That IS full HD although the 37XV505DB is a better set with high contrast ratio and only about £30 more
#5
I think it is the same on as on their web site, this is the part number for it listed.

A great price. But £18.95 delivery
#7
£400 in store, same price as the 32"!!!
#8
£425 for a 37XV556/5DG at pixmania still looks much better value imo, even with postage taking it to £440-odd.

There's quite a lot of 37" 720p TVs around at this price recently.
#9
anyone agree Toshiba LCDs designs have gone downhill significantly? I have the 37" Z series, 1080p & top of the range when I bought it, the design of the frame & stand looks so much better than these new series.

it's ones of the reasons putting me off purchaing the new Toshs, they have good spec & relatively the cheapest compared to other brands, but looks near fugly compared to the Samsungs, LGs & Sonys.
#10
Great deal mate
#11
No1_Dave, why are you thinking of changing your tosh?

No1_Dave, why are you thinking of changing your tosh?


No, absolutely not changing, I'm very happy with my 37" Z series in the living room, paid overall £800 for it in 2007, it looks much better than the current designs of the Toshs, it really was top of the range, still don't look out of place today, FullHD 1080p, 100Mhz ActiveVision, 3xHDMI 1.3 Deep Colour, 24fps with 5:5 pulldown, slim speaker with Onkyo technology etc.

I'm just looking for a 1080p 32" for my bedroom, being interested in the new LGs, but wouldn't mind purchasing another Tosh, if it wasn't for the design of the frame, stand of the current series just looks rather fugly, but the price for the spec for a Tosh is still cheaper than most brands.

It's not cracking it's appalling - I have a Technica LCD in the bedroom. Get down to the opticians now!!! Does anyone need 1080 on a 37inch TV anyway? Not unless you are sitting 5 ft away (perhaps that's why your eyesight is so bad?)

My Mum has a Tosh LCD (not this one but the model up) and it's fine for most people and a good deal for this price (HOT BTW). If you want quality get a Panasonic / Pioneer plasma or spend mega$$$ on a Sony LCD.

That graph makes no sense to me, I'm looking for a 32" or 37" tv for my new house. The lounge isn't massive and I estimate that the viewing distance will be somewhere between 15-20'. According to that graph I won't notice the difference between SD and HD Ready let alone 1080p or 1440p.
My viewing distance now is about 15' and I have a 26' Samsung panel and I can deffinetly tell the difference between SD and HD sources and the improvement over my old CRT.

I know for the size panel i'm looking for resoloution isn't a big factor but there is more to TV image quality than the amount of pixels yet that's the only thing that tends to get argued over.

What about response time, refresh rate, contast, backlighting etc etc. I've notice the cheap set never mention a response time.

LOL at the same old arguements about 1080p is not needed on 32" TVs (you're even stretching the arguements to 37"?) I can spot the difference even in 32", will be sitting to it close because it'll be used in the bedroom, 37" and above, the difference between 720p & 1080p is even more obvious, if you, and all the others who say you can't spot the difference then really need your eyesights checked.

also need to take into account peoples living rooms & bedrooms are difference sizes & shapes and not everybody can fit a 42" - 50" TV.

In the long run it still be worth while to put a tad extra and also have that feature in a HD LCD! if your gonna spend £££ may as well get the best for your money init. . .. And that tv your on about is a unbranded crap:p

Your pi**ed because you couldnt afford the toshiba haha

I admit, the scale on the chart is a bit daft but it works well if you print it out. The average UK viewing distance is about 9ft (source: BBC) so if you are viewing at 15ft that's quite a lot, a little more than I do. At that difference you will start to be able to notice a difference (if you have 20:20 vision) between 720 and 1080 on a 50 inch screen, not a 26inch one. It a physical impossibility. You will notice the difference if you get REALLY close though - which is quite good if you sit close up for playing computer games perhaps (I do).

If you really can tell the difference on your 26inch set I would seriously consider going the Guinness Book of Records 'cos you have the best flipping eyes on the planet!

Don't confuse 'notice the difference between resolutions' and 'notice the difference between a good and bad TV / input source'.

Please, don't be fooled by marketing hype or the need to justify your latest purchase: if you have a shiny new 1080 set and are viewing a BluRay through it then the results will be stunning, jut no bettern than through the same set with 720!

Dave: There is sense in your argument: If you sit close you will be able to tell the difference! I was fooled by the hype until I read some scientific evidence which told me I didn't need to spend an extra £XXX to get a 1080 set at MY viewing distance. There really is no arguing any further on this point is there?

LOL, I think you've quoted the wrong person, I've ALREADY "put a tad extra", spent £800 in 2007 got the top of the range fully featured TOSHIBA Z series back then, won't be upgrading it any time soon, may be in the future with OLED coming down in price.

and what TV did I go on about being unbranded crap? never bought an unbranded TV(or electricals for taht matter) in my life, always prefer trusted branded products.

I wasn't talking about seeing the differrence between HD ready and 1080p and I said I wasn't viewing 1080p as a priority on a new TV for me but that graph stated I shouldn't of noticed a difference between my old SD tv and my current HD 26". I'm more concerned about response time and refresh rate, most spec sheets of cheaper tellys don't show those figures because all people boast about are pixels and contrast ratio.
I'm sure I don't have the best eyes in the world but I like the picture quality on my current unit, as much as I want a bigger TV, I wouldn't want to have a poorer picture quality then I have now. My cousin has a large screen (not sure on size), when I saw it I was pretty jealeous until he turned it on!
