Some customer reviews of Toshiba 40RL858B

Most helpful reviews

James, Rotherham Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Best value for money LED Backlit LCD TV on the market. Makes the Top 10 on most reviews for this price bracket. I have done my research and you'd have to pay another £350 to find a better TV. USB plays every media format, enough connectivity for all your needs. Picture and sound more than good enough and home cinema compatible. Looks the part.
Bad points:
Don't expect the world from the "Smart" functionality. BBC I Player and a few other bits work fine via ethernet only but that's it. Digital EPG is a bit clunky. Don't use the auto back light function because it's pants and movie mode is too dull. Some corner light bleeding on low quality black images.
