LCD TV Set Fall Preview

Toshiba 27WL56P

The 27WL56P represents the new generation of 27" LCD TV sets from Toshiba. Not long ago we tested a 32" set by the same maker, and it didn't leave an indelible impression. But our test of the 27WL56P showed more promise.

Design And Finish

Toshiba has put a very top-of-the-line finish on their 27WL56P. The materials used are of high quality and the plastics are excellently crafted. The lines are the classic ones shared by all the brand's Stasia TVs. Again, the speakers have been moved under the LCD panel to make for a more compact volume.


The set's remote control is classic and effective. Toshiba knows their business - this is a practical, fast and no-frills remote.


The 27WL56P, to put it simply, has everything. And it's also the first TV set we've tested in this price range that has HDMI connectivity! In that department, nothing's been left out.
