Good size TV.. It is also available for £346.99 at Costco but it is out of stock for over a month now....

Revel in some downtime with this 58-inch smart TV from Toshiba. Whether you’re keeping up to date on popular boxsets or lounging with the family and a movie, you can be sure of a stunning picture quality thanks to the 4K Ultra HD resolution. And, you’ll be wowed by the lifelike beauty of every scene as the Dynamic Dolby HDR delivers incredible contrast and colour. There’ll be plenty of entertainment choice too, from streaming your favourite shows via popular online services to plugging a device or console into one of the 3 HDMI ports or 2 USB ports. Plus, if you use an Alexa-compatible smart speaker, you’ll be able to change the channel with simple voice commands.

We want you to fully enjoy your new TV, so please be careful when unpacking it – pull it out of the box using the edges so that you don’t damage the screen. If you need to return your TV for any reason, we just ask that you don’t pack the plug in front of the screen as it could damage the TV in transit.

HDR that's better than no HDR but not exactly amazingly bright.

And black levels on OLED = 0 Nits and on high end QLED circa 0.0036 Nits so not the darkest blacks but OK for the price.
Great deal!! Toshiba is a good company overall, I find. Just dont watch TV enough to justify the purchase
Nice for the price..

🔥
A good budget TV. We have had one for a while. Occasionally locks up and the software is a bit buggy but the TV is good.

Can you translate that even more for people that have no idea what any of that means aka me
I went and bought a Toshiba TV, looked good, decent price, but poor build quality, screen really wobbled, sent it back, waited for black Friday and got an LG for cheaper with zero complains at all
Maybe ours was the odd one out, but didn't want to bother going for another Toshiba.

Kind of like the contrast of colours. Bright colours are not that bright and the black is more of a very dark grey than actual black. Basically not a high end TV but will do the job for most.
Understand you need at least 500 nits before HDR is effective. 1000 is what you want but wouldnt be anywhere near this cheap

Toshiba used to be an ok company. Now it's just a brand name when talking about consumer electronics (like so many that are sometimes found on shelves: Akai, JVC, Sanyo, Sansui, Sharp) to sell Chinese, or in this case Turkish, sweatshop produced consumer goods.

I’d recommend some treatment for that, Ouch - sounds painful. You can buy special shampoo on Amazon to deal with it, (Amazon also sell TVs, not sure why you mentioned that - but good luck)

It's a TV with an OK picture for the price.
Edited by: "Tony_DR" 13th Apr
These are vestel sets but for the money are ok if you spend ages fiddling with the image settings...Dolby vision looks horrible no matter what you do as you can't adjust the settings for DV material and you can't switch it off. The smart stuff is ok, although after the latest update Netflix keeps crashing and making you login again. Sound is (relatively) excellent though.
Back in the 80s toshiba were a leading brand ... sadly now they are occasionally trumped by Bush or Aiwa !!
Can someone explain a but why some 55 inch TVs are 300 and others are 1200. What exactly do we need to check for when buying one apart from just how expensive it is. I understand maybe oled>qled>uhd>simple hd
We have the 65” version of this was on offer for around €500. I wasn’t expecting amazing but 4K for that price on a 65” panel was a good enough deal for me to bite.
So for my 2cents the tv itself looks really nice it’s plain glossy black bezel (our last LG 50” tv was the champagne colour) and I honestly prefer this tv. The picture once tweaked is really good for this price range I was actually shocked. The sound is ok but we have some wireless speakers hooked up so it doesn’t effect our experience at all. The os is a little buggy we don’t really use the smart features as we have our 4K firestick and an Xbox one connected so Netflix, YouTube etc are run from there. Overall I’d bite for this tv if you were looking to update your current setup as this is a nice budget setup, it also is easy to setup and has all the connections you want (like when switching hdmi to firestick the tv remote takes control of the firestick (great if you like me have little ones that loose that little remote down the sofa) and can be switched back to control the tv with a long press of a button.
Hope this helps any questions please ask me
It's got the flattest squarest tube. The flattest squarest tube.

Thanks leonjj! How bad & slow would you say the OS is? What would you rate the OS out of ten? Thanks for any advice , thinking of getting 49 inch one from Argos
Vestel
Wireless speakers.... Anyone got any recommendations?... My TV has Bluetooth but no headphone jack.

In the same way a dacia is £6000 and a premium Mercedes is £60000.

For watching Corrie, soccer Saturday and x factor, a £300 TV will do the job as well as a £1300 TV. In all honesty once you're lost in a film, the difference between an Oled and a cheapo LCD disappears.

For people who want the best picture quality, have a £500+ sound system, find themselves that the blacks look like grey and want to be blinded at how bright their TV is, they'll be looking at the top end sets.
Not available for delivery lol, oos?

4000 Nits is what the vast majority of HDR films are mastered in, so that's what you ideally want. High end QLED can exceed 3600 Nits peak brightness.

bought this tv from ao a month or so ago,picture was awful sent back and bought the new roku hisense tv. very impressed with the hisense. took minutes for the apps to load.
Bought a Toshiba last year for the bedroom and it's not very good tbh panel is loose and OS is rubbish I wouldnt buy one again....I have an LG oled for main TV and its superb the OS is the best and very quick...there is I big price difference but if the OS on a similar priced LG is as good as my oled I wouldnt hesitate to buy the LG for a bit more money

Yet I paid £800 (YES £800) for a 32 inch LCD toshiba in 2006 when LCD first came out and I use it all the time in the other bedroom and it's been great still going strong!

Where there is a price difference such as the one you are referring to, the likelihood is you are comparing an LED backlit TV to an OLED TV. Yes they are both TVs and to make us as understandable as possible..
OLED will have deeper black colours and the consistency of the picture /colours across the panel will be far more consistent

2200 for a 42 Panasonic Viera plasma.... How things change
please don't waist your money I bought one of this from ao.com a year and half ago, suddenly I lost the picture and now I have to throw away and get new one, if you are looking for a TV get one with 5 or 6 years warranty, Toshiba is not a reliable brand.
Bought a 55" Toshiba 4K from Costco 2 years ago for £400 and it's been great. Cannot complain about the bang for buck. Toshiba don't make them though, they are Vestel sets like the majority of the non premium ones.

Sorry for late reply, it’s not that the os is slow it’s just never going to be as bug free as say a firestick or Xbox for things like Netflix or YouTube, it runs fine and I’ve not seen any major issues it just will never be in the same category.
Bought this last month from AO eBay outlet. With a damaged box £240.
I'm pleased with it.
