Toshiba Regza 52XV545U

 

PCMag did not test the 52-inch Toshiba Regza 52XV545U HDTV. We did, however, test and review the 46-inch 46XV545U from the same series.

img.greentechlogo {margin-left:7px!important;} Compared with plasma TVs, LCDs excel at producing a bright, high-resolution picture but fall short when maintaining accurate color representation in particularly bright or dark scenes or at wide viewing...

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 46XV545U

 

Toshiba is trying to corner the market on "turns your standard-def into high-def!" hype. One recent attempt was the XD-E500 DVD player, which trumpeted funky and ultimately disappointing "XDE" video processing in attempt to lure buyers. Now there's the...

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.

Toshiba's 42-inch, 120-Hz 42XV545U HDTV delivers solid image quality, finishing second overall in our performance tests, close behind the Vizio SV420XVT. Despite its high scores, however, I had a mixed reaction to this set. Contrast in the Pirates of...

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

Toshiba 52XV545U LCD TV

 

The largest of this series is the 52-inch 52XV545U reviewed here; also available are 46- and 42-inch versions. Curiously, the previously reviewed but more-expensive 52XF550U is not in the Cinema Series, though it is very similar in most respects.

Product Specifications

Only the best get to be called Cinema Series, and the 42XV545U certainly makes the grade. This premium LCD TV features the longest list of picture quality technology enhancements yet, including SRT, AutoView, ClearFrame, ColorBurst, PixelPure 4G, DynaLight, and more. If you are looking for the sharpest, easiest, clearest, fullest, most natural, and deepest picture Toshiba has ever created, you owe it to yourself to view the 42XV545U and see what is possible.
