I Want My 32" LCD TV


The unit is adequately equipped for a TV set. In fact, we didn't find anything more complete on any of the models tested here. There are three Peritel/SCART connectors and cinch and S-Video connectors for the usual peripherals. YUV and HDMI will make it easy for owners of a Toshiba 32WL48P to move to HDTV when the time comes.

At first blush, the TV is a serious product. Toshiba knows its business and missing are the kind of foul-ups made by manufacturers coming from the PC world.

Toshiba 32WL48P: Color Rendering

Here again, proper rendering of black is impossible, and we'll have to settle for relatively poor fidelity in the dark colors.

The black level is not good on this set either, despite brightness that's lower than the competition's. I was hoping for a little better from a Toshiba set.

Spatial Uniformity

While not catastrophic, the Toshiba 32WL48P's uniformity is not the best we've seen. The values are spread over 30% of the total range - average, but frequent for a 32" model, unfortunately.
