With latency measured at 26ms. HD is better articulated with bolder colours, to compensate for the miserly HDR10 performance of sets at this price. The rear protrudes somewhat, whereby you can monitor the weight and type of the processing being applied via a couple of continually updating graphs. Perhaps I just didn’t make myself clear, it does feel antiquated. Plus there’s a dedicated PC port, and trying to open Netflix led to her to telling me facts about Netflix.

As with the vast majority of Toshiba’s current LCD range, the 42AV635DB wears its heart right out there on its sleeve. A close investigation of the 42AV635DB’s connections, however, again reveals little if anything that might give away the set’s wallet-friendly nature. There are four HDMIs, for instance, when some sets costing hundreds of pounds more only offer three. Plus there’s a dedicated PC port, and a USB jack that can play JPEG photos straight through on to the screen.
Panasonic’s X10 plasma series, for instance, is only HD Ready. Considering that the 42AV635DB marks Toshiba’s entry-level 42in TV, it’s quite surprising to find it still carrying a reasonably potent suite of video processing. Active Vision II have both survived the cost cutting process. Active Vision II is rather less interesting so far as I’m concerned, as it’s really just Toshiba’s name for the sort of mostly unremarkable general purpose video boosting engine found in some form or other on almost any TV these days. The amount of processing going on in the 42AV635DB is sufficient, in fact, to justify the set’s retention of Toshiba’s little Control Visualisation trick, whereby you can monitor the weight and type of the processing being applied via a couple of continually updating graphs. Neither of these graphs gets much of an explanation in the instruction manual, mind you, limiting their usefulness. But there’s still something strangely reassuring about sitting there watching a TV as cheap as the 42AV635DB clearly doing something processing-wise to the picture on a continual basis. It kind of makes you feel like you’re getting more bang for your buck!
The 42AV635DB is surprisingly flexible with its picture setup for such a bargain-bucket TV too. Ambient light functions on other TVs tend to work in isolation, without also taking into account the content of the image. I was also pleasantly surprised to find my HD Video Essentials Blu-ray set-up disc getting more use than expected courtesy of a passably flexible and useful colour management system. This lets you manipulate the hue, saturation and gain for the six main colour constituents of a video picture. Other pleasing set up discoveries are a static gamma adjustment, a sliding bar to select the balance between the black and white extremes of the colour palette, and the facility to set the starting point for the TV’s auto backlight adjustment feature. TV with ISF accreditation, not some supposedly cheap and cheerful budget model.
Perhaps inevitably with such a cheap TV, though, despite all of its calibration tools the 42AV635DB only delivers a decent rather than amazing picture performance, for the simple reason that it’s unable to rise above a couple of classic LCD problems. Models I’m thinking of that better the Toshiba in the black level department without costing substantially more would be Samsung’s LE40B550, and Panasonic’s plasma-based P42X10. It commonly follows that a TV with contrast issues also has a few colour issues, and so it proves with the 42AV635DB. 42AV635DB has some impressive plus points as well as its couple of problems mentioned previously. It reproduces moving objects surprisingly well, for instance, with only a very acceptable degree of resolution loss and smearing. In other words, the lack of 100Hz processing ended up bothering me less than expected. Colours during bright scenes, meanwhile, re-inject a decent amount of the dynamism that can go AWOL during dark scenes, and perhaps best of all, the 42AV635DB’s pictures are very crisp and sharp.
But the 42AV635DB can also produce standard definition pictures that look startlingly sharp by budget TV standards. As with almost all budget TVs, the 42AV635DB’s audio is pretty average. On the upside, vocals are reasonably open, clean and authentic, and unlike some budget rivals, its speakers don’t distort except under the most extreme provocation.
