Toshiba Regza 52XV545U

Stellar HD video detail. Excellent picture contrast and energy efficiency

Oversaturated colors. Mediocre SD upconversion

Toshiba's 46-inch Regza 46XV545U LCD HDTV delivers a superbly detailed HD picture, but its punched-up color is tough to tame.

Toshiba XV545U review: Toshiba XV545U


Reproduces a deep level of black; relatively accurate grayscale after calibration; 120Hz dejudder mode has few artifacts; numerous picture controls; plenty of connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input

Inaccurate primary color of green and cyan; subpar uniformity; proprietary upconversion circuit introduces edge enhancement; lackluster design.

Consider the midprice Toshiba 45XV545U for its decent overall picture quality, not its gimmicky standard-definition processing.

Limited capabilities Expensive

One nice touch: Press the Mute button once, and the audio drops to a whisper; press it again, and it mutes entirely--and closed captioning comes on
