£349 For 12 cinema tickets....and you want to know what the TV is like? oO

avforums.com/rev…700

that was written when the TV was 'just shy of £580' in September 2014.
Toshibas smart features are very poor imo
Looks pretty good for the price. Cinema tickets in time for Age Of Ultron too
The 42" version (42L6453DB) got a don't buy review in Which? Avoid.....Hard to use, bass-dominated sound, mediocre picture quality.

It goes on to say Colours look unnatural on Blu-ray films, while motion on fast action scenes can appear blurry and juddery. Things don't improve on Freeview TV through the internal tuner, whether it's standard-definition or HD viewing, and the Scart RGB picture is nothing to write home about. The only real positive is the viewing angle, which is nice and wide.

Better as a picture frame as not a plasma X)

Which? magazine disagree, as do those that get stung with their Vestel models.

Should I buy it?
No. We don’t name products Don’t Buys lightly, but this Toshiba deserves it. Picture quality is disappointing, sound is bass-heavy and it's difficult to use.

Your not going to do that thing where you state your (somebody elses) opinion and then attack everybody else's are you?

It's a £349 47" smart TV.... Relax
1st time that I read that sound from a flat panel tv is bass-heavy. Usually there's as good as no bass at all on these. If that's true, then Toshiba deserves some prize for solving the sound issue on flat tv's.
Great spot. I would have probably gone for this if I hadn't got the Sharp earlier in the year. Cinema tickets would have got brownie points with oh!

I have recently (after looking for a 50" tv and obviously interested in current tvs) got a trial to Which? Therefore have a vested interest in televisions, therefore have looked up reviews, therefore have posted the one for this tv which according to that is a lemon. I have posted elements of that review here....Which? do not have many 'don't buys', I am not asking anyone to agree with it, I most certainly am not buying it though.

I got a 50" smart tv instead for £50 more with a 5 year warranty, I will relax after doing my own research.

Totally appreciated your opinion mate, I obviously haven't used the TV, just read the reviews I have posted, they were a bit far from do not buy status.

Did Which? Not review the 47? also just out of interest at what price point and date was the 42 reviewed?

Like any other magazines, they only choose to review one in the series....video processing is identical across models in the range, only panel size varies....as for the price point £319.99 and a review score of 43%.

Pros
Good number of HDMI and USB ports, smart TV for apps and web browsing

Cons
Hard to use, bass-dominated sound, mediocre picture quality

I thought Which? reviews were respected..perhaps not, anyone care to comment?

I also assumed the reviews on Which? Were gospel, which confuses me to the various other reviews.

Anyway we might as well through some user reviews into the (42" model) mix

They also gave the Sharp LD266K range the same lambasting, those also get fine Argos reviews. In fact it really is awkward getting a decent balanced view (no pun intended!) of any tv I find.

Cico. I read many reviews and took a chance on the Sharp 46ld266. I got it for 289 with a 5 year warranty and am delighted with it. My budget wasn't much more than that. The picture quality is absolutely amazing. Once calibrated properly it has an awesome picture. Got the Sony 5200 blu ray player and it really shows off movies.

This Tosh TV was on my shortlist with the extra inch and the cinema offer making it a very good competitor. I agree with Buzz that there seems to be some disparity in reviews. Which "don't buy" and Expert Reviews "recommended". Although Expert Reviews actually had the 47 model to test.

For what it is, this is a great deal anyway and I heated it accordingly.

I avoided the 50" Sharp because of the review. Poor picture, processed sound, pinkish hue to picture, motion blur.

I certainly am not going any further than my trial with Which? that is for sure. It's over £10 a month subscription, and although that gives you free legal advice, besides the reviews (of which I am not sure of), money tip (of which can be found for free on MSE) and a monthly magazine it is incredibly steep.

What did you go for in the end?
So cicobuff you're basing you're opinion on this T.V by referencing a solitary review that is for a different model? Wise buying. Why not take into account the review of the actual exact model by expertreviews who rate it highly along with the user reviews on tesco who also rate it very highly (4.5 out of 5 from 22 reviews).

I price matched with Powerdirect's £399 at John Lewis (to get the 5 year warranty) the LG 50PB660V, once again though...pretty good Which? review, but some mediocre reviews mostly relating to its black levels which are meant to be poor for a plasma (known as the 50PB6600 in the US)...there again talks of calibration and tweakings and users are experiencing much better black levels....not up there with the best of plasmas but good.

My first array into the world of plasma (as it is dying) whilst awaiting OLED. I was going to plump for the well reviewed LG 49LB5500 as I don't really need Freeview HD (use freesat) or smart tv features, but the price, the 5 years warranty and the alleged picture quality of plasma was too tempting.

No, I posted the review (to be helpful) but now I am more questioning Which? magazine against the competition. You may or may not be surprised at the amount of times Which? reports have been used on HUKD in reference to products as if it is gospel...as a new trial subscriber I am not so sure it is. As stated earlier, it is not a different model (different size panel, same tv, same processor...all reviews across the board do this and choose a tv within a series)

I do however find users reviews of most tvs biased however especially laymans reviews at the likes of Argos or Tesco etc, and do prefer analysis of a tv with proper calibration.

I mean lets face it, exactly how good and accurate are consumer reviews of tvs at Argos when they are like this :

No mention of why they rated it 1/5 for connectivity, yet still say it is a great tv...with no elaboration on picture quality, black levels, motion refresh rate, sound quality etc etc
