Advantages: Good image quality, stylish design
Disadvantages: Sound system is average
I don't usually have television, rather I stream episodes, shows and whatnot online. Therefore, I didn't have much interest in buying a television for my room. However, amazon was quite persistent in recommending me a list of good value television several times, I decided to have a look at what's available on the market. Toshiba is good brand that I trust as I own several Toshiba-branded electronic products such as laptops and older TV sets. This brand reliability combined with low prices gave me an incentive get this LCD TV for just under £280.00.
I don't really have much to say for designs made by Toshiba. This TV, like other series from Toshiba, is designed to be slim and contemporary. It doesn't take up much space and it is very easy to set it up with the help of my friend. Considering we're pretty petite, I can definitely say that this TV is quite light and easy to handle. Also, the base of the TV is pretty stable, I don't use the wall mount and instead just put it on top of my bookshelf. I haven't had problems with it being wobbly or anything like that.
The 32 inch widescreen is the perfect size for me and it has LED-backlit technology, which helps to bring out the colours. This TV is 720 p HD ready and despite not being full HD, the quality it delivers is very clear and bright. However, this can be a drawback for gamers like me who play PS3 rather than Xbox 360. Since PS3 has the capacity to go full HD, this 720 p HD ready TV can make you sigh. Nevertheless, from my experience, it still manages to deliver satisfactory gaming experiences and good images. Therefore, unless you have a full HD TV and this one side by side, there's a low chance that you'll notice the slight reduction in quality.
As for the sound system, it uses Dolby Digital Plus output and it does include the bass boost effect. It comes with two built-in speakers. As far as bulit-in speakers go, these are pretty alright. It's nothing to be advertise about but the sound system is bearable even when I'm listening to music channels. However, since I mostly listen to music from my laptop and iPod, I don't really have a problem with the average sound quality of this product.
Overall, this Toshiba 32 inch LED-backlit LCD TV delivers satisfactory performance and the quality of this product is on par with what I expect from a good brand like Toshiba. I think this is a consumer-friendly product with good reliability and durability without bleeding my purse out. The appearance is very stylish and fits well in my bedroom. Good one for Toshiba, I'd say.
Thank you for reading. :) x
