The Good Low cost Built-in DVD player 720p resolution Reasonable image quality Wide range of connection options Easy to use.

The Bad Some image noise Slight pixilation at times Blacks are a little washed out.

The Bottom Line The Toshiba 26DV615Y won’t blow you away with image quality or features but it is perfect as a second television and the integrated DVD player is excellent value at this price.

Toshiba sells three models in the current DVD/Combo range. There's an AU$849 19-inch model, the AU$949 22-inch model we've reviewed and an AU$1049 26-inch model.

Toshiba 26DV615Y

A 26 inch television isn't something most people will buy to install in their living room as a main display. They are ideal as a second unit or for something to set up in a child's room to keep them occupied with a DVD or two. This unit from Toshiba marries the idea of small panel size with an integrated DVD player. While it isn't particularly revolutionary, it is successful at delivering decent image quality at an affordable price.

Design

There isnt anything especially amazing about the design of this television. It has a glossy black chassis and stand and the slot loaded DVD player sits on the left of the unit. We did like the fact that the stand was pre-installed and folded behind the unit when not in use and it has ample connection options for a television of this size. At the rear there are two HDMI ports, one Component, and a standard Composite port with S-Video. There is also a PC connection as well.
