Personally, I never trust anyone on this sort of thing. They sell them in Currys so you could probably nip in to do a bit of tyre kicking before picking it up for the lower price online

I quite Like Toshiba, my 37" LCD screen is still going strong after 5 years. I kinda wish it would break so I could buy one of these.

The specs seem decent and most 3D panels are great for 2D stuff with their high refresh rates.

HD telly with SD Freeview. Why?

Agreed .
senseless now that freeview HD is so well established

any idea of refresh rate?

ah its 200hz

haven't watched sport on it, I bought mine for £299 in the clearance section. it's pretty good, not a high end one by any means but better than my old 42" LCD philips one

All the reviews on the tesco page mention a free 5 year warranty??

No FreeviewHD?

No good .....

A lot of people have free view recorders or sky plus these days so don't see the lack of HD as an issue. I'm more interested in the picture quality for bluray/games. Price seams good considering the other specs. Would prefer a current owner's perspective though!

haven't gamed on it yet, decent quality for movies though. if you give me a couple of days I'll take some pictures of gaming/blueray. I think the only thing i've found is the colours are not quite as vibrant as they are on the likes of a sony/samsung TV but in terms of value for money I can't complain. only thing i've noticed is that on a black screen you notice some patches that are brighter than the rest, can't really see them while you're watching TV normally though.

great deal!! cheers!!

Yer, I never thought I'd be bothered with the difference between Freeview SD and HD. Until I got a TV with freeview HD. Now I wouldn't consider a TV without it!

May be time to upgrage my old 42" LCD panel, still going strong after 6 years I think

Hot

Another +1 for Tosh from me, got a 6 year old one myself still going, that was £800 mind lol

Just got this from the clearance section at Shoreham Tesco. Build quality is good, picture is very good for the price. Obviously can't compare to the more expensive panels, but for the price it's definitely better than the Celcus/Polaroid own brand TVs. If you're looking to upgrade to a bigger screen it's definitely worth it!

Few things I've noticed though:

- Had to set sky box to 720p rather than 1080i; was seeing noticeable interlacing lines on the picture
- Although Toshiba spec claims it has a 200Hz mode, this seems to be a built in thing as I have no software option to turn it on/off
- It's fine for watching fast motion footage, but certainly shows its low price
- The prebuilt colour modes are a bit odd, I found cinema just dulled the picture and sport just upped the contrast, both made the picture worse. But natural with the brightness turned up seems pretty good.
- The light on the front isn't a button... have to use the back panel or remote to turn it off

This has only a 50Hz panel and uses software to 200Hz

I have the 37" version of this and all in all it's not bad quality.my frustration lies with the sound quality - even at low volume the speakers vibrate and rattle. It's very annoying but I've been unable to stop it. Does anyone know if this is a common fault? Our other Toshiba has fab sound quality. X

Think it's quite common - same thing happens on our 40 inch of the Freeview HD version of this. I was going to get a sound bar but ended up just using a decent set of PC speakers plugged into the headphone socket! Picture quality seems fine.

Pretty sure these cheaper Toshiba TVs are made by Vestel nowadays.

We are actually the problem ... we want top quality items yet don't want to pay what it costs to get that quality ...... so, companies cut costs to give the illusion that these things are bargains.

Truth is, generlly, there are no bargains anymore ....... the names on the front don't mean much either as items are made by a mixture of chinese factories.

We want cheap, we get cheap - no good moaning that things don't perform as an item costing three times as much.

Does anyone know how to get the sky remote working with the tv?

I brought this TV from Argos, and returned it within a couple of days. My family and myself all thought it had a very dark image, and this could not be countered using settings. This is just my opinion, and others may not feel this way.

EDIT: Also a sky code does not exist yet, so you will not be able to control your TV with your sky remote.

That's how it looked when it first arrived. There's a backlight setting. Changed to medium and it was fine...

Hi,
just thought I would let people know that I ordered this tv and the label on the back does say "made in turkey". so probably Vestel. Though interestingly Vestel claim that 4 out of 5 tvs made in turkey are made by them. Who else is there making tvs in turkey?!
I've not fired the tv up yet but considering I got it brand new delivered for £303 (from coopelectrical using a voucher and cashback) I don't mind it being Vestel. My 2009 42" Toshiba is still going strong, but that was made in Slovakia.
