Found 20th Jun 2012
Stunning price for what is, essentially, the flagship TV in Toshiba's UK range at present (discounting the 4K glasses-free £7000 55ZL2) in 46 inch flavour.

Average price around the interweb is between £900 and £1200

The only downsides most reviewers have noted are :

very poor side by side 3D viewing (but Bluray 3D is spot on)
reds are a little washed out
and, er, that's it...

Annoyingly I ordered this from Very for the same price but mine isn't due to be delivered until 27 June 2012 - this one is available tomorrow !

Currys has on bundle offer for the newest model of toshiba 46tl963b with 3d bluray player and 2 pairs of active shutter glasses for 699..... The tv cost 699 on its own....got mine yesterday...

The TL series does not feature the Cevo processing engine which is what sets the WL/YL series apart

The TL series does not include built-in Wifi either

Basically, you cannot compare the two TVs - they are miles apart in terms of technology and features - I agree that is a good package price, but this deal relates to the top TV sold for £1200 at Marks and Spencer's site...

Looks like a nice TV for the money. The Panny-Fans are probably voting it cold, have some heat.

As clayts said, the TL range is below the WL range. Lesser spec'd, but good TVs all the same. However, prices shouldn't be compared to the WL models.

Still wanted 40 inch tv with freeview hd built in

No - there's a mistake on the Tosh website - the YL863 is identical in every way to the WL863 aside from the silver frame and the free specs.

Be aware, some 42 inch versions include an LG panel, which as we know causes some concern, as an IPS screen is not as well specced as the high quality panels used in the 46 and 55 inch versions, hence explaining why they have such good black levels

It was on their website amd in store but i think the offer ends today....

I have the 42" WL863, and the LG panel is still exceptional, just not as exceptional as the AUO panels (I expect, I've never seen those in the flesh).

I had the 40TL868 before that, and the WL picture knocks spots off it.

No. Check out the Toshiba Places portal on their web site. That shows you what you get, plus BBC iP and YouTube.
