    Another LCD TV I am now considering is the Toshiba 27WL56.

    Based on the official Toshiba spec it looks pretty good.

    Progressive scan
    Real digital picture processing
    Viewing angle (degrees): 170
    Sound Audio output (RMS) W: 20
    Nicam stereo
    SRS WOW


    Connections Fixed audio output
    HDMI
    Headphone
    PC compatible
    SCART: 2
    Composite video
    S-video
    RGB: 2

    Note mainly that Toshiba claim contrast is 900:1, brightness 500. 2 Scarts AND 2 RGBs, as well as Composite HDMI and composite. Looks good by those claims.

    However, on various online retailers it is only 600:1 contrast, brightness is 550. The 2 RGBs are included within the scarts?

    Sound & Vision say they contrast ratio is 800:1, 500 brightness, with the following connectors.


    1 x S-Video Connection/s
    2 x Euro Scart Connection/s
    1 x Composite Video Connection/s
    1 x Headphone Socket
    1 x HDMI Connection/s
    2 x RGB Scart Connection/s

    Does that mean the RBGs are included within the scarts? or not?

    So anyone who has actually got one, what is the correct spec? The contrast and brightness especially seems to vary, though its the same model.

    Thanks.

    I have this tv. and the manual you get with it doesn't tell you a great deal really. the main thing is there is no s video, and only 1 rgb enabled scart. would have better if tosh included component connection as there are issues with getting component signals through the vga port.

    picture quality via rgb scart for dvd and games via xbox are very good.
