£279.95 with 12 month guarantee
£307.90 with 5 Year TV Guarantee

In-store price is £10 dearer, so remember to quote that the website is £279.95

The quality of the image on this Toshiba was impressive compared to the £500+ FULL HD screens next to it & the lowest price anywhere with a 5Yr Warranty made it even more of a deal

If you've missed the bargains @ Tesco & For an awesome Toshiba TV deal, check out the Toshiba 32AV615.


It may be fantastic value for money, but there's nothing cheap about the way the Toshiba 32AV615 performs. The Toshiba 32AV615 is fitted with their Active Vision processor for high performance viewing. So that it's all set for the HD revolution, the Toshiba 32AV615 is HD Ready - perfect for Sky or freesat HD plus most games consoles which now also output in HD. With its high quality screen and picture processor, the Toshiba 32AV615 offers a crisp, realistic picture with excellent contrast ratio and brightness for the price. It might not be up to LED standards, but compared to similarly priced no name brands, it's streets ahead.

In addition to above average picture quality, the sound is a cut above, too. The bass boost system prevents the TV from sounding too tinny, whilst the 20 watts power output drives the TV to reasonable levels in larger rooms. Despite this, we'd still recommend getting a separate home cinema system to get the best sound!

The Toshiba 32av615 certainly doesn't compromise when it comes to sockets. Three HDMI sockets are ample for most and this is backed up by twin SCARTs, component, S-video and a PC input. Furthermore, there's also a headphone socket for when you want to watch TV without disturbing others.

Boasting a slim, gloss black bezel, the Toshiba could easily pass for a more expensive TV. At just 91 mm deep, it's also less deep than many budget rivals. What a result!

as always remember John Lewis Price match with 5yr Guarantee included at £279 price. Just make sure you don't get a lazy sales person and you get the price match team.

True, although I couldn't see it on the JL website
#4
Not voting. My RS never have any of the offer TV's. Think the manager is taking a backhander from John Lewis so they don't have to price match. In fact unless you want a home brand product it's not even worth going in.
#5
Great price. Personally I prefer to spend a little bit more for a recognised brand.The picture quality on the Technika sets just isn't the same as Toshiba, LG, Sony, Panasonic etc the same goes for the design, but I guess you get what you pay for.

HOT HOT HOT!

Yes wanted to support my local shop as have bought hi-fi from them for many years. When they started selling TV's at the branch several years ago they just never seemed to get going. Ended up getting it from Currys for £270 when they had it on at £300 using 10% off code. Think the best option for me now would be Amazon at £289.99.

Only 1366 x 768, please avoid. Always be on the look out for 1920 x 1080 only.

We got this TV for my nan before Christmas from RS and the man who served us wouldn't match the price of the website. Said it was all separate.

Can you explain further? If a tv is 1080, does that mean it has a better picture quality?

Thought not.

I can't wait for the new term to start.
#11
Has this tv actually got better picture quality than the full hd technika one? :S

:-D

Most people still use HDTVs for SD material 90% of the time. In which case a 1080p telly will generally be worse.

I have to say, it winds me up the amount of rubbish spouted on this site about HDTVs.

Standard definition: 576 lines.
High definition: 720 lines or more.
'Full' high definition: 1080 lines.

This TV therefore is 'HD ready', and at this size 720p is perfectly fine. In fact unless you're sitting a couple of feet away from any 32" TV I doubt anyone would notice the difference between 720p and 1080p.

In any case, most people still use TVs for standard definition content (like Freeview and nearly all of the Sky channels) - what do you think goes into the rest of those lines on a HDTV if there's only 576 lines of signal? That's right, the TV basically guesses and sticks it in there. Some TVs are good at this, and some are not. But if your TV is 1080p then that's even more stuff it's got to guess, so SD can look pants even on the good ones.

IMO a 1080p TV is only worth having if:

a. The TV is 37" or greater.
b. You put full HD content into it most of the time.

It's absolutely ridiculous that so many folks come into threads like this and say the TVs are somehow of lesser quality or a poor deal because of the 720p/1080p issue. Unless there is a better or more suitable TV at a better price available elsewhere, STFU.

Rant over.

To see the difference of 1080p over 720p at 32", you must.....

a) have 20/20 vision and sit 5 feet away

or

b) have 20/15 vision (ie better) and sit 6.5 feet away.


For most of the population, who have worse eyesight and sit further away, 1080p is utterly pointless. Their eyes are incapable of seeing the extra resolution.

I conducted a double-blind test and it appears that nobody can see anything on either telly.

in simple english you are spot on.....in fact the best tv's for standard def are decent crt's, then plasmas, then led/lcd's.......my pioneer is superb though, whereas my cheaper smasung is pants when comes to anything sd or anything moving, but then it cost alot less than the pioneer

You'll be able to notice more details on bluray movies, unless you're blind.

C'mon, you're Trolling aren't you? Read the comments posted by others on this thread, you CAN'T tell the difference between the two HD levels from a 'reasonable distance' on this size screen. You certainly won't be able to notice the difference watching in your bedroom while Mum and Dad watch grown-up TV downstairs.

Big deal, you wouldnt notice on this size TV unless youre sitting in front of the TV or using it as a PC monitor

Plus for the price you cant expect that sort of spec, thats why its a hot deal. i think its a great buy

I hate arragance

Agree. Or if you were using it as a PC monitor.

hot deal! saying that I've still got a 22" CRT tv in the lounge. Maybe I'll upgrade next christmas :-D
#25
I think this is a great price for a decent LCD but i am a bit disappointed with the sales this year.
I think R/S had this TV on sale about 4 months ago for only £10 more?
#26
Hot from me, though not as hot as the Tesco deal. I bought this the week before Christmas and I'm very pleased. Was going to go for the Samsung at a tenner cheaper, but only two HDMI and less contrast. Got the 5yr warranty for an extra £29. I don't normally go for warranties, but £29 is quite cheap and also I only got this TV cos my 'less than 2 yr old' Beko broke.
#27
Voted Hot. Although we bought the next model up, the 32AV635 from Amazon for only £20 more a few weeks ago

Quackstar84..... There is a saying by the famous author Mark Twain which is appropriate here:- "It is better to have people think you a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." :whistling:
#28
Hot from me. I bought this set just under 2 years ago for £320 and it was really good value then and still is now.

I wouldn't be looking at 1080p sets for 32" and under unless you're looking for a monitor. Also, I would be wary about paying ~£300 for a 1080p 32". Just because it's 1080p it doesn't mean it's superior to a 720p set at the same price. I mean checkout the cheap argos 1080p tat, the PQ is terrible.

If you're able to distinguish the difference between the resolutions on a 32inch set, i'll eat my hat!

total rubbish ive both a 1080 and 720 no visible differance ,i wish i could state there was!
#31
As has been said, it's physically impossible for the human eye to resolve the difference sat at a normal viewing distance.

Unless you're using it as a monitor, it's always better to go for which set produces the better picture quality rather than the number of pixels it has.
#32
Bought this TV a couple of days ago (paid £289 which was the online price a couple of days ago), picture quality on both SD and HD content is fantastic.

The sound on this TV is great, featuring bass boost and virtual surround sound.

Very impressed. I have a 1080p Bush 26" and this Toshiba is superior in terms of both picture and sound. Doesn't bother me that this is a HD Ready (720p/1080i) TV as this is the SKY HD standard and I don't have a blue ray player.
#33
Got mine 2 months ago at this price, I'm no expert on tvs but I am happy

The reasoning on full HD being a waste on a screen of this size makes sense to me - but there's always someone that "knows better" but doesn't want to back that up - then disappears LOL111
#34
Just bought one of these and very pleased with it....so heat added....also got it from Richer sounds in Leeds and never had such a good deal. Was £279 on tinternet and newspaper advert, but £299 at the shop. I rang up and ordered one 4 days before collection and confirmed the lower price at that time. Collected it, no quibles still paid £279 and they even carried it to the car for me :-D...Secret with RS is order by phone first ..
#35
Got my LG 32LF7700 today... £350 with freesat and the abilty to use it as a monitor at a arm's distance (native resolution of 1920×1080) and still pull off head shots on my favourite FSP shooters (Got Killing Floor for £4 quid the other day) is a winner. Each to their own although my piece of cake is sweeter and bigger then all yours... "So there"... *Goes back to the play ground*.
#36
Oh and just to finish ya'll off;

Most LCD monitors are able to inform the PC of their native resolution using Extended display identification data (EDID); however, some LCD TVs, especially those with [COLOR="Red"]1366x768 pixels[/COLOR], [COLOR="Red"][SIZE="3"]fail[/SIZE](Epic)[/COLOR] to provide their native resolution and only provide a set of lower resolutions, resulting in a less than picture perfect output.


So if you do use this TOSHIBA REGZA 32AV615 as a monitor you'll get " less than picture perfect output" because 1366x768 is 768p where as 720p is 1280x720 so it has to down scale it not the correct native resolution.
#37
quackstar84
and bigger then all yours... "So there"... *Goes back to the play ground*.


Nah I bet mines bigger than yours.

Hot Deal
#38
Quackstar, you really are infantile. The TV is a HD ready model. The OP flagged it up as a HD ready model. It is not and has never been promoted as a full HD model so please grow up and stop comparing it to one or bemoaning the fact that it doesn't have the performance of a full HD model.
#39
Picked one up earlier with the 5 year warranty today for the bedroom. Some adjustments to brightness and especially contrast are needed once out of the box, but once it's all set up, the picture is very good for the money on freeview. Yet to play any blu rays on it yet, but so far I'm pretty chuffed.:)
#40
errm what if you have an xbox and the game packaging indicates the game is 1080 compatible...will that be the ultimate sweetspot?
so if screen is less that 1080 some downscaling is happening and we get the HD vs SD thing and the pic may be lots worse?
