Like I’ve done my wife’s Nokia Asha 303. this review comes from myself which is not a professional product reviewer. I also isn’t a TV enthusiast so this review is not “deep”. I bought this TV set about months ago as replacement for my Sharp Alexander Slim II that I gave to my parent.
Brief info about Toshiba Regza PowerTV 24PS10E: this is a 24 inch LED TV; LED power saving feature that got me hard, it consume only 40W; support fullHD 1080p video, full HDMI; support multi format video, including FLV, 3GP, MP4 and MKV (a big factor that I decided to buy this one, this TV can play MKV that LG LED TV and Samsung LED TV even can’t play — I ask the salesperson to test my video on different LED TV brands and choose which one that can play it); USB playback (no need additional video player).
OK, these are the “negative” side of this product bundle:
- no wall mounting included (it’s only 24″, who need wall mounting for this kind of size; stand mounting is sufficient)
- no HDMI cable included
- yes Toshiba Regza 24PS10E can play MKV video (even if the MKV is created by the latest mkvmerge); yes it can show the embedded subtitle; yes it can show .srt/.ass external subtitle; BUT: the font subtitle is too small and we can’t change the font size; the subtitle is pure white and we can’t change it, it’s hard to see in “bright”-themed movie; Toshiba Regza 24PS10E often messed-up with subtitle if the file name is too long. NO subtitle styling, all .srt/.ass font styling will be dropped, only white subtitle!
- sound quality is not to be compared with my old Sharp Alexander Slim II (a quite let down on this one factor)
- auto “signal booster” is not as good as Sharp Alexander Slim II
- “start-up” time from standby mode to full “live” (when the TV image is shown) is quite long, about 2-3 seconds
- can’t read/play from USB 2.0 powered external hard disk. I’ve tested it with my Toshiba Canvio Basics series 500GB external hard disk. Maybe this TV can read external HD that self powered (via it’s power cord)?
- It has three-pronged power cord but not bundled with cheater plug. All of Indonesian power plug is standardized to use two-pronged power chord, so I had to go to nearby electricity store to buy my own cheater plug.
No product picture this time, too lazy to take picture of my TV.
