I have owned my Toshiba 28W93B for about 6 months now and I can truly say that it is the best for the price around.
It is the cheapest widescreen TV that Toshiba make but it still has all of the usual features a great picture and more importantly great sound.
The TV is in my households’ main living room and although quite a lot bigger than our old set it does not look too imposing. It is a standard black with a 28" 16:9 widescreen screen. The picture is sharp and it has all of the widescreen modes that you want (so you can fill the screen with a standard 4:3 picture or make a 2.35:1 picture appear with no borders).
What does stand this TV above the rest is it's sound. Quality and power are delivered with a very high output of 20W RMS per channel. Just to compare the standard Sanyo 28" widescreen has 12W MPO that works out at roughly 8W RMS per channel. I would have liked to go for the Dolby Pro-Logic version but my parents did not want rear speakers and anyway the room is not the right shape for a good pro-logic set up.
Overall this TV has impressed me greatly as it looks and sounds very good. If this is Toshibas cheapest widescreen I would like to see the quality of their more expensive ranges.
In response to comments,
The Toshiba has 2 scart connections with Scart 1 being RGB compatible as well as the standard RF in. It also has a set of front Composite Video inputs on the front for connection of a games console or a video camera. Unfortunately there is not S-Video in but that is not expected on a budget TV.
As price goes I picked this TV up cheap from www.intersaver.co.uk for just under £400 as I did not want a stand. This was the only place selling the TV without a stand and I also got a free Samsung DVD511 DVD player with it as well. This was a special offer that I think has ended now but it was a great deal. I don't know too many current prices but i have seen it for under £390 at www.empiredirect.co.uk.

original Toshiba 28 W93D 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 28 W93D 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.
