Toshiba 46RV525R LCD HDTV Review - Intro


The Toshiba 46RVR525R is a vanilla 46-inch LCD TV. It supports 1080p natively, and an impressive screen size, but it doesn't have the features you'd commonly see on a higher-end HDTV. It does have a mode to help with 3:2 pulldown, which makes a...

The Toshiba 46RV525R is a solidly average set, and we don't mean that in a bad way. At this price we don't expect to see high-end internet and media features, or mind-blowing picture quality. The best part of this TV, is its price has dropped...

Toshiba 46RV525R LCD HDTV Reviewed


The 46-inch 46RV525R from Toshiba is a high-value LCD that is EnergyStar 3.0-compliant but uses a CCFL backlight and lacks a 120Hz refresh rate. Is it a great deal? Adrienne Maxwell explains what you get and what you give up if you go with this value...

Great TV. Bought it in 2008 and still has an excellent picture quality. I upgraded the firmware via the USB port in December 2010 and now I have no sync problems with my newer Bluray player that I bought in December 2010.

Great TV-priced right with a great picture.


Would recommend and purchase again without a second thought...minus the HD Monster cables.

Great picture compared to other brands in the price range. Not a high price, high end Samsung

The only problems I've had are with my HD connection, HD inputs at the TV quit working. Switched to my HDcomponent cables-problem solved

Could this be any worse...


I purchased this TV from in January, 2009. The picture is fantastic, but that is one of the few things that I can say that are positive. We have had issues with the TV's remote control, the TV makes a high-pitched squeal sometimes when getting a signal...

A special Game Mode ensures you get high-grade pictures from the latest games consoles.
