100Hz is currently the upper limit for commercially available LCD HD TV’s at the moment and you could usually expect to pay upwards of £1000 for one so to find one with a good make and build for under £600 sounds too good to be true.
The Toshiba 37WLT68
straight out of the box gives a crystal clear picture and if you compare it with a Toshiba 60Hz HDTV of similar spec the difference it immediate. Blurring is less of a problem with the Toshiba 37WLT68 due to its M100 100Hz processing technology however, as with most other LCD TV’s pixilation can occur from time to time especially with background images which is a disappointment considering that it is otherwise such a high spec HD Ready TV.
The range of input output options is impressive with 3 HDMI ports, VGA, component, S-Video amongst others with the only niggle of the Toshiba 37WLT68
is the habit of reverting to 4:3 aspect when the HDMI input for the DVD player is changed.
A really annoying negative of the Toshiba 37WLT68 is the response times. The remote control sucks to be frank and changing anything or getting information up on screen will leave you twiddling your thumbs from time to time as you wonder whether or not the thing has crashed, but no, it’s just taking its sweet time. This may sound like a minor point in comparison to all the other considerations when buying a HD Ready TV but if you’re like me, I want my gadgets to respond immediately and not leave me hanging waiting for response.
This is a generic problem so if you do plump for the Toshiba 37WLT68 there’s no point returning your remote control to Toshiba for a replacement as it will not be any better.
Looks-wise I don’t see how anyone can complain about the Toshiba 37WLT68
as it is proper gorgeous and in an average sized living room it will look great on or off. Hope you enjoyed this HDTV Review
, as with all our other HDTV’S, we have it at a great price at our store
