Toshiba Regza 46SV670U

 

The Regza 46SV670U ($2,299.98 list) marks Toshiba's entry into the increasingly crowded pool of LED-backlit LCD HDTVs. This 46-inch model is a beauty; its edge-to-edge glass and overall sleek design will complement any décor, and, more importantly, the...

Attractive design. Excellent color quality. Crisp, detailed high- and standard-definition images. Solid average contrast ratio

Some blooming. So-so viewing-angle performance. No Web features

Toshiba's 46-inch Regza 46SV670U delivers the latest HDTV tech, a stylish design, and overall impressive picture quality. While the local-dimming LED-backlighting array produces very deep blacks, you'll have to put up with some minor blooming issues to...

Toshiba 46SV670U LED LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Toshiba 46SV670U is first LED-backlit with local dimming we've seen. Overall, we liked the color performance, but everything else left us wondering "why the hype?" Modest gains in contrast ratio weren't enough to have us drooling.

The Toshiba 46SV670U is a safe bet for its price and class range. It held up admirably, though didn't trump its competition. The Toshiba only fell apart on one test, color temperature consistency. The motion smoothness was less than ideal, but not the...

Toshiba Regza 55SV670U

 

Editors' note (March 4, 2010): The rating on this product has been lowered because of changes in the competitive marketplace, including the release of 2010 models. The review has not otherwise been modified. Click here for more information .

Costs less than most LED-based LCDs with local dimming; delivers deep black levels; relatively accurate color; extensive picture adjustments; can separate anti-blurring and dejudder functions; plenty of connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input;...

Blooming more noticeable than on other LED-based LCDs; backlight fluctuates; poor off-angle performance; glossy screen reflects ambient light; benefits of 240Hz difficult to discern.

Albeit slightly less impressive than other LED-based LCDs with local dimming, the Toshiba SV670U also costs less and still gives great blacks.

Toshiba Regza SV670 LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro

 

The king of the hill in Toshiba's 2009 lineup is the SV670, a new model that comes in 54.6 and 46-inch sizes and which includes LED backlighting and local dimming, where sections of the backlight can be dimmed to provide deeper blacks. The SV670 is due...

Despite its awkward-sounding "Regza" moniker, Toshiba's 46SV670U delivers a gorgeous high definition image after proper calibration. Plus, LCD blacks that actually look... black!

Regza? Seriously? Toshiba definitely needs to reconsider the name for their flat panel lineup, and here's why: I don't like saying the word, I don't like hearing the word, I don't like reading the word - and neither do my wife or the few friends I...
