Having spent a long time in Comet, over several weeks looking at various TVs, ranging from 32" CRT, 26" + 32" LCD and 42" Plasma, I happened to walk past the rear projection section. I have always dismissed rear projection TVs for being dated and low quality hence my surprise at the quality of the Toshiba 42WH46P set. It was sat next to a Samsung and an LG set of similar specifications and price, however to me the picture was much higher quality than either of the other two, and as for the sound, it is simply superb. Being on a limited budget I decided that I would settle for the good quality Toshiba, whilst not being plasma quality, for the money I couldn't complain. I ordered and took delivery on Tuesday and quickly set it all up with my surround sound system. I purchased two Profigold PGV7000 hi-def scart leads, one for my DVD and one for my Matsui freeview box. I set both boxes to output RGB through the scart and hooked up the leads.... UNBELIEVABLE! I cannot get over how good this set is. I am not sure whether I have been very lucky with my set (having read some of the reviews) but I must say that it is better than all but the most expensive plasmas I have seen (The Panasonic Viera series in particular). The picture is clear, well defined and the colours and contrast blow plasmas out of the water. I spent some time performing the manual convergence and I do not have any ghosting or halos around contrasted edges or any kind of picture noise. I know some people will be reading this saying 'Yeah right, as good as a plasma, pah!', but believe me I was saying that very thing before I took delivery, but I can honestly say, hand-on-heart, that this set is simply amazing, and for £749 it is even better. If I were to buy another TV again, it would boil down to either the Panasonic 42" Viera plasma, or this Toshiba, and when you consider one can cost around £2.5k and the other is £749 it is a bit of a no-brainer.
