Toshiba 42X3030D Pt 1

Colin Tang

Part one of the Toshiba 42X3030D review is up.

As some of you may already know, the X3030D marks the 1080p entry on its latest range of products. The tantalising Motion 100 Hz feature will only be available in the Z series, which is due later this year.

The X series feature 24FPS processing but details on this is sketchy at the moment. It’s a shame we can’t check its 24fps input because of the lack of 24fps devices out there. Of course I don’t also know what it does with the 24fps input, which is also another important question. mmm…where can I get a video processor? Sponsors anyone?

The 37inch panel for the X3030D states a 3500:1 contrast ratio, which should mean a different panel than the 42 inch and worse yet, poorer blacks.

Vincent and I are busting our ***** on this model because it is taking a LOT of work on the greyscale and colours. We’ll try to get this up as soon as we can.
