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 40RV525R

 

The 40-inch Toshiba 40RV525R 1080p LCD HDTV is not perfect- it has several picture and audio quality flaws- but for the price, it is hard to find a better model of this size to beat. If you are looking to save money without losing out on a bigger...

Excellent value- difficult to beat the great pricePerfect fit- Cinespeed LCD offers 40 inches of stunning 1080p pictureFlexible- features NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuners and multiple portsEntry-level- offers a nice balance of price, picture, and performance

Improvable- picture and audio quality are substandard to expensive models

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...

This TV has a 1080p resolution and will accept 24p sources via its HDMI inputs ; LCDs can be very bright, which makes them a good choice for a brightly lit viewing environment ; The 46RV525R has a solid number of video inputs and picture adjustments ;...

The 46RV525R does not include 120Hz technology to reduce motion blur and film judder ; The TV doesn't have a USB port or SD card slot that supports digital media playback, nor does it include an Ethernet port for Web connectivity ; This LCD uses a...

Toshiba's 46RV525R is a fairly stripped-down model that's best suited to someone who wants a 46-inch 1080p LCD at a good price and is not interested in higher-end features like LED backlighting and 120Hz technology.

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.

Toshiba 40RV525R 40" LCD TV

 

One of the best LCD televisions on the market. I purchased this television about 1 year ago and have not regretted this purchase at all. Picture and sound quality are absolutely top in the market.

Picture quality is top notch. No blur or drop in clarity even with the move action packed scenes. Sound is of the highest standard. Hook-ups and adjustments are a breeze

None found after 1 year

Very Nice

 

All in all very nice!

This is my first LCD TV. Picture is very crisp and sharp with HD sources. I hook a laptop up to it via an HDMI cable and basically use that as a media center...watch movies, streamed content, etc ; Great color straight from the box. Lots of menu...

The only cons I've found so far in the several months or so I've owned it is that I find the audio is pretty weak. Its not so much the 'tone', its that the amount of volume available is next to nothing. I had to add a pair of self powered speakers...

Good TV

 

This was my first TV post college, and I have to say I'm very satisfied. Its a great value buy for someone looking for something to last, but at the same time definitely not a videophile's first choice.

Great size to price ratio. Good quality at price range

There are two separate options for dynamic brightness/ contrast, neither of which work particularly well and can be hard to find in the menus to turn off

Product Specifications

As well as Full HD 1080p resolution, the RV series gets the best from HD content by using 100Hz Picture Processing which virtually eliminates motion blur often associated with fast moving sports action with its 24 frames-per-second display - so you're watching exactly what the director intended. A special Game Mode ensures you get high-grade pictures from the latest games consoles.
