Toshiba 22DL833B 22-inch Widescreen HD Ready LED TV and Built-in DVD Player – 22DL833 Review. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly


We have a 40inch toshiba so a small screen for dining room toshiba was the choice. Great little tele,only drawback is you cannot affix it to the wall – probably because it incorporates a dvd machine. But hey it sits nicely on my cabinet.

Not what i expected from a new tv. The picture is good but it takes a while to come on and simple commands like the sleep function take more than a few screens to turn on. My last tv had a pre programmed shortcut button, so this seems a bit antiquated. Also, the remote won’t work unless you point it directly at the sensor.

Got this toshiba for the bedroom and have to say it fits the bill very well. Good picture quality once you adjust the initial settings, and dvd playback is also of good quality. Sound, as always with flat screen tv’s is only lo-fi, but add external speakers (pc type work well) and you will have a very entertaining set up.

Selected this tv as it fitted my criteria for reliability, service and postage. Excellent purchase for price , size and make.

Toshiba 22dl833b 22-inch widescreen hd ready led tv and built-in dvd player with freeview. I’m very pleased with this toshiba 22dl833b 22 inch widescreen tv with built in dvd and freeview. It has a good size screen and lovely clear picture. The only downside is you cannot wall mount it as there are no fixings on the back, but if you don’t want to wall mount it like me it’s a great buy and the speed of the delivery was faultless.

Have had it for a year now and it is a good set. The sound isn’t the best in a large room so we have interfaced it into our music system and that’s a big improvement.

    Toshiba 22dl833b 22-inch widescreen hd ready led tv and built-in dvd. This television arrived well on time and i am very pleased with it. Although it does not have a switch on the side or back i used a ‘switch’ set of plugs and this works absolutely fine.

    Bought this for our spare (visitors) bedroom, but not too sure about its reliability yet. We have a cheapo portable aerial connected and the signal is pretty weak anyway. So we either get no picture at all or when we do, it tends to drop out from time to time. But that is undoubtedly due to the poor aerial, rather than the tv. When we do have a picture it is very good. But i’m more concerned about the inbuilt dvd player which i often have to fiddle with for ages to get it going and even more to get it to eject the disc. I ought to return it really, but can’t be bothered, as so far i have always got to start eventually.

      The tv has an excellent picture with good colours and perfect definition. It certainly was a superb buy and good value for money. Easy to set up and enjoyable to watch.

    I bought this tv the other day on amazon lightening deals. They reduced it from 189 to 129 with free delivery. Its a little big for the kitchen but how could i not buy it. Very happy with my purchase.

    We bought this television for the kitchen and we are really pleased with it. Clear picture etc we cannot fault it in anyway. The dvd is a useful extra feature. There are also all sorts of settings to show photographs and play music from a usb flash drive. Tried them out to see if they work – which they doalso prompt delivery, well packed and easy to set up on the stand.

    This superb telly is just what i was looking for. It has freeview, built-in dvd (which plays divx), usb port (which plays divx, mp4 etc. )and mounts on a bracket with no problems. Although picture quality is not perfect altogether it’s a great tv.

        This is a good little tv it does every thing i wanted. It plays all my recorded dvd’s and the usb is very handy for playing films from memory stick. The quality of the picture is good. If there is any down side it is the sound quality,.

    This item was selected simply because it appeared to be the only model produced in that screen size with a built-in dvd player. It was available immediately from amazon, whereas it would be on back-order from the usual high-street suspects, and amazon’s price was around £50 cheaper. It was delivered – two days after ordering – with the efficiency that i now expect from amazon, exactly in the middle of the one hour time slot promised. I opened the box, plugged it in, it self-tuned and proceeded to work perfectly. It does what it says on the tin. Prior to ordering i had spottedd a couple of reviews that had criticised aspects of the sound quality or the minutiae of the image reproduction. It’s a telly, not the space shuttle. To my untutored eye it does exactly what a tv is supposed to do; the picture and sound are miles better than the tv it replaced, and i had thought that the old one was pretty good. I think this is good product and i am perfectly happy with it.
