I have had this Television for a while now, and I honestly can't remember how much I paid for it, however I would hazard a guess at around the £250 mark. I bought it to replace another Toshiba televion I had which was square and since I got Sky and DVD's etc. I wanted the widescreen.
This television lasted a week in the living room, before the square one was put back in, and the 28W27B was plopped into the bedroom. The picture quality on this TV is better than the old one without a doubt, however the sound is absolutley rubbish. There is absolutley no bass from it (which I like, as I tend to watch MTV Dance an awful lot) and when you turn the bass up in the menu, it goes totally distored and really you just dont want to listen to it. I don't know if this is a general problem with this "Virtual Dolby" thing, but give me the hassel of 5 speakers and wires trailing everywhere anyday over this piece of non-sence.
The menu system on this television, as with most Toshibas is simple, easy to use but does the job, the remote control is also a lot less complicated than the old Tosh, dosen't have as many button to press etc. Its also a nice size of TV if you want widescreen but dont want it taking up half the room.
All in all, its a good television, does what it should, but you wont need a mortgage to own. However if you like your MTV channels turned up loud, go for Dolby Pro-Logic and spend a bit of time running cables. I am extremeley dissapointed with the sound output of this TV.

Replacement Remote Control for Toshiba 28W27B (batteries included)

This Classic® remote control is a replacement which will operate ALL the functions of the ... more

original Toshiba 28W27B remote. It does not need
any form of programming - just insert batteries
and it is ready to use.The Classic® range of
remote controls has been a popular choice of the
professional TV servicing industry across Europe
for over a decade. Unlike more generic
replacements, each individual Classic® remote
control is custom-designed to operate EVERY
function of the original remote that they replace.
The case style itself has been designed for
sturdiness and reliability, whilst the buttons and
text are optimised for visibility and ease of use.
To meet the demands of the servicing industry, the
materials and components used within the remote
are carefully specified to produce a thoroughly
reliable product.Usage notes: As a replacement for
the Toshiba 28W27B remote, the position of some
buttons may be different to the original remote
control. Where one Classic® remote control
replaces a handful of original remote controls,
some with more features than others, there may be
one or two buttons which in some cases are
redundant. This remote control is an economic,
functional replacement (i.e. not a Toshiba branded
original remote control). Please view the product
image to see the part which will be supplied.
