My current television is a Toshiba smart TV with 42” screen. We purchased from a Curry’s high street store because Curry’s have a large selection of televisions on display.
This TV can be wall mounted but we use a TV unit.
It has a flat screen and a slim, smart appearance.
Picture quality is very good being crisp and clear.
Colours are good and true to life.
The sound on this set can be completely muted or turned down to barely audible or turned up to a very high volume. When switched on the volume will come on at the level it was previously set on.
It can be connected to WiFi with an adaptor (not included) and then BBC iPlayer and Youtube can be viewed.
I quite often use Catch up TV.
TV on demand is available.
It has a built in Freeview tuner.
we don’t use 3D very much because it’s rarely practical to watch 3D as to do this the special purpose glasses need to be worn but I will say when viewing for short periods of time I’m impressed with 3D TV.
My elder son is the main user of 3D TV when he is watching tennis. If strawberries and cream were served then he might almost believe he was watching centre court at Wimbledon!
Our purchase included four sets of 3D glasses.
The HD feature of this television is popular with my husband and son when watching sport; televised sport lends itself well to high definition, in my opinion.
The television can be switched on and off from the remote control .as well
as from the front of the set.

When I first had this set I pushed it further back on the TV unit as it felt too close. Now I don’t have that problem and have been debating whether to purchase a larger screen television.
However, although my living room is quite large I would hate for the television to be the main feature in my home.
