Not a great review … Not a great review here:http://www.trustedreviews.com/toshiba-46ul863b_TV_reviewbut heat from me.



What a shame, I though this TV has going to be better, still heat on the price if someone had already decided they wanted this set.
cracking deal and want one but just dont have a spare monkey :(.

No cashback for technology / electricals......
Hot!! 100HZ LED 46" HD, SMART £500 - I'm upgrading from 8 year old plasma, can't be any worse a piccy regardless of reviews, and LED is the way ahead having tested them in a shop!!!
do u guys think it's good with ps3? thanx beforehand.
Nice specs, shame about the review.
Brilliant price, had I not got my Sony for the price I did this would be top of the list!
Whoa momma - great deal including the guarantee. I've just taken you over 100 degrees!
Best deal for a TV I've seen on here - I've just taken delivery of the 37" model for my bedroom and paid £399 which in itself is a steal! For another £100 to get the extra 9" wow!

iPlayer, youtube, on more features being added this is a steal!!
Lovely stuff. I've been tracking the deals on here for a while, but not many TVs in the 46" / 47" range have been coming up. This is just what I wanted.
Assuming size is not a factor, is this TV better than the recent 42" Panasonic deal (£399 @ Amazon) ?

£399 @ Amazon

No idea, haven't read any reviews on that one but its a good price as well. For me the built-in wifi, usb record etc were the winner with this spec! Also LED over Plasma

Personally, I would take this over the plasma. Plasma's are usually power hungry, bulky and suffer from drawbacks such as screen burn. LCD/LED's are the future.
Am considering this but M&S returns policy (if you're not happy with the TV rather than if it's faulty) is a full refund within 7 days. However, they charge £100 to cover collection costs.

If there was a free returns policy then I would order but bearing in mind the mixed reviews (http://www.avforums.com/reviews/Toshiba-Regza-UL863-37UL863B-32UL863B-42UL863B-46UL863B-37-inch-LED-LCD-TV-Review.html) and the cost of returning the TV if it's not satisfactory, I think I'll pass on this one.

Still a good price though

Decided to take the gamble and order one. Thanks to OP.
Its not gamble, as I say I've just received the 37" version this week and its a brilliant TV for the cost!

You're right about the higher energy use (it's the one thing that put me off Plasma, but as I usually only use my for films I wasn't so bothered).
The Panny 50" VT30 uses 193w out of the box on 2D TV (183w if calibrated) and 263w for 3D (248w if calibrated).
This compares to a 55" LCD/LED Samsung C8000's use @ 110w in 2D use (76w if calibrated) and 114w in 3D mode (oddly enough this does not change when calibrated).

The Plasma definitely uses a lot more energy but it's a small difference (close to the difference between running a single 60w light bulb whilst watching....I only ever watch 2D, I have zero interest in 3D in the home).
It's there but it's pennies a day.
And they keep on getting better about this each year.

But bulky?
My Panny G20 is about 3" deep at it's largest point, hardly bulky.

Screen burn is no longer a big deal with Plasma any more than it is with LCD/LED - anyone fool enough to leave a static highly contrasting set of images on either will get screen burn/image retention but both types of screen nowadays have no particular problem here if used like any normal viewer would.

As for the current LCD/LED TVs being the future?
Sorry but they are not.
(.......and neither is Plasma either for that matter)

OLED is the future.

(and despite the name these have nothing to do with current LCD/LED tech)

OLED promises significantly lower power use even than current LCD/LED, greater contrast than even Plasma can offer and truer colours along with a barely perceptable lag time better than either LCD/LED or Plasma can offer.

Sadly it'll be 3 - 5yrs until they come down to something affordable from their starting prices (for the 55" version now being shown in the US) of about $10,000 a time.

Since we're on the topic, I think you'll find Holographic TV is the most distant-future technology.

Maybe I should rephrase my statement on bulky, to 'comparatively bulky' considering my 46" samsung LED is probably no deeper than an 1" at any point, I would say plasma's are comparatively bulky especially when mounted onto a wall.

With regards to the extra electrical consumption, the cost is not only financial but ethical. Why should I waste 60w? I could light up every room in my whole house on energy saving light bulbs with 60w.

Also the plasma's I've personally encountered in the past seem to generate a lot of heat. Great in the winter, not so good on a summer's afternoon.





wow, HOT

Agree! Should always purchase a set with warrenty also the reviews are not entirly positive for the 46 verison. Still good price if you want to upgrade, I will give it a miss however
Good make and price, plus its from M&S (decent customer service), what's not to like

Oh come on, that is so far off nobodfy could possibly say what may be around by then.....but in the genuinely foreseeable future OLED is it.

Well I wouldn't wall-mount a TV (I hate the tendancy to place them at what is to me an unnatural height).
But 1" or 3" does it really matter so much as to be worth remarking on?

Besides it is only edge-lit LCD/LED that is that slim (and edge lighting is not that great for image quality)

I guess the answer is what you define as waste.
Plasma offers a superior image.
I think it's worth it.....although as I said I did think about it long & hard (the ethics of it do matter to me) but as I use the TV for films mainly & it is not on for hours and hours every day I thought it worth it.

I've never noticed.
But then mine doesn't buzz or make that mosquito whine some complain about either (not even on an all white screen which is when its said to be at its worst).

Mind you I have a receiver which is renouned for pumping out heat (an Onkyo), I guess its swings & roundabouts verses the heating bill!

Stick with the GT30, it may not be pretty but it has much better image quality (and that's what matters). Plus it has the option of 3D
i've ordered this been wanting something slightly bigger than my samsung le40c530 so this fits the bill perfectly
ONLY 13 LEFT!
