Toshiba 46ZV555D Review – 46-inch LCD HDTV


Toshiba 46ZV555D. With the launch of the world's first upscaling LCD Flat-panel TV, the Toshiba REGZA ZV series is attempting to revolutionize the HDTV market. The 46ZV555D is ultra thin with a sleek bezel look and has many of the high-end features...

With 1920 x 1080 native resolution, the Toshiba 46ZV555D has the highest definition signal currently available. Besides the HD Ready 1080p technology, the new 46ZV555D has a gamut of color enhancement features. Like the Active Vision M100 HD feature,...

Toshiba Regza 42ZV555D 42in LCD TV


Resolution+ makes another appearance on Toshiba's 42in 42ZV555D LCD TV. What does John make of it and the set?

Thankfully, it is. For just like Danny, I found myself very impressed by Resolution+ in general - but with one quite major caveat...

Tosh's new telly promises “near HD quality” images, no matter the source – but can it really deliver the pixel-perfect goods?

Its upscaling isn't as revolutionary as it claims, but this is still a capable TV with fine image quality and a decent price

Toshiba Regza 46ZV555DB review


We had high hopes for the Toshiba Regza 46ZV555DB's Resolution+ upscaling technology, but we just weren't that impressed with its performance when dealing with real-world material. The HD quality of this TV is great though, and sound is good enough for...

Good HD picture ; Simplicity ; Films look very good

Styling isn't as attractive as the picture-frame range ; Price is too high ; Resolution+ isn't that impressive

If you can bear to lose six inches, we love the Toshiba Regza 40ZF355D and think you should get one of those. At this price point, however, Panasonic's 1080p plasma TVs are within reach, and almost certainly a better bet if you're a movie lover

Toshiba Regza 46ZV555D 46in LCD TV


It may not have worked in a DVD player, but Resolution+'s upscaling prowess really shines in Toshiba's 46ZV555D LCD TV.

The 46ZV555D boasts terrific performance and a comprehensive feature list, which makes it feel like a real bargain - particularly when you consider that similarly-specified 46in sets from the likes of Sony and Pioneer cost a lot more. Resolution+ makes...

Toshiba 46ZV555DB


The 46ZV555DB is a typical Toshiba ? solid, likeable, and right on the money

A very solid, natural and detailed picture for the money; a not-unpleasant warmth to images

Resolution+ isn't amazing; contrast is a bit limited

Expert review by:

Toshiba 42ZV555DB


Toshiba seems to have been left behind somewhat by the latest crop of new flatscreens

Enjoyable black tones ; good with motion (eventually)

TV tuners don't convince ; so-so 1080p pictures ; unpleasant sound

Toshiba Regza 46ZV555D LCD TV


HDTV may the buzz phrase of the moment, but there really isn't that much of it about. Yes, the number of Blu-ray films is steadily increasing, but on TV, the fact that it's corralled into separate channels suggests that it's still not quite a...

Resolution+ picture processing boosts quality of standard def pictures from TV or DVD sources, and Active Vision M100 HD delivers smooth 100Hz processing. There are plenty of connection options too

Standard def pictures aren't quite as close to HD as Toshiba suggests. The processor occasionally boosts onscreen noise as well as picture detail

Expert review by:

Toshiba 42ZV555


This uses elements based on Toshiba's PC cell processing technology to deliver supposedly enhanced rescaling of standard definition pictures, so that they look sharper and more natural on the 42ZV555's full HD screen.

Unusually good standard definition pictures, solid feature count and specification, decent HD pictures too, aggressively priced

Black levels not the best, care must be taken with processing settings
