Toshiba 46 SV 685 D

 

Barely any local-dimming artefacts., High contrast ratio., Excellent motion clarity., Accurate 24p reproduction (even with 60-hertz signals)

Slight green tint., Picture looks too soft with 576i/p signals., Mediocre user-friendliness for DVB-C reception

Toshiba's local dimming technology delivers a contrast-rich, consistent image ― and all for a fair price. On the other hand, the overly soft picture from 576i/p signals is a disappointment, and DVB-C reception suffers from some awkward operation.

Toshiba 55 SV 685 D

 

Diverse picture settings., Barely any Local Dimming artefacts., High contrast ratio., Accurate 24p reproduction (even for 60i signals)

Not user-friendly enough with DVB-C channels., Slight blur with 576i/p signals., Distorted letterbox-zoom picture (too wide)., No letterbox zoom for up-scaled TV pictures

Day-to-day TV viewing is a pleasure on this Toshiba — if you’re willing to put up with the average video-processing quality for standard signals and the awkward channel management for digital cable reception. On the plus side, you get a massive screen,...

Toshiba 55SV685DB review

 

Huge LED backlit plasma TV that excels with HD, but struggles with SD

Impressive black levels ; Smooth HD images ; Strong audio

Poor onscreen menus ; Lacklustre upscaling of SD sources

Showcases LED backlighting at its best, but standard-def sources are poor on this user-unfriendly TV

Toshiba Regza 46SV685DB review

 

Toshiba's late entry to the LED TV arena is worth waiting for

Excellent contrast and detail ; Good quality audio ; Multimedia talents

Price point ; Not particularly thin or stylish

This TV offers good picture performance with some unreal contrast figures and some sweet audio but the design and price leave a lot to be desired

Toshiba Regza 46SV685D 46in LED Backlit LCD TV

 

It's pricey, but with a bit of tweaking the Toshiba 46SV685D LCD TV can deliver a scintillating LED-backlit picture.

Toshiba Regza 55SV685DB 55in LED Backlit LCD TV

 

Find out why John reckons this 55in direct LED-backlit Toshiba LCD TV is excellent.

By murdering the price of the 55SV685DB ahead of this review (though oddly some sites are still carrying it for well in excess of £3,000!), Toshiba has turned an excellent TV that nobody could afford into, well, just an excellent TV.

Toshiba Regza 46SV685DB review

 

Toshiba has cast aside its mass-market appeal and gone for full-blown luxury with its first ever LED-backlit TV. But with a price tag to match, it has a tough job on its hands to impress us. We find out how it gets on in our Toshiba Regza 46SV685DB...

Stunning contrast levels, great colours and fine detailing deliver great viewing pleasure

It costs too much, especially with no web access, occasional motion-handling issues too

A stonking example of an LED TV, but so expensive it hurts

Toshiba Regza 46SV685D LCD TV review

 

Seemingly everyone's been getting on the LED backlighting bandwagon recently and Toshiba is no exception, making its LED debut with the two models in the Regza SV series (46-inch and 55-inch).

Full HD 1080p. Impressive LED dimming system. Deep black levels. Very sharp pictures and good overall colour tone

Pricey. No internet access

Toshiba 46SV685

 

In trying to understand the 46SV685's price, it turns out that it uses the direct LED lighting system, with an impressive 128 separate, individually controlled LED arrays. Also potentially key is its 200Hz processing system, designed to enhance the...

Good motion processing, really sharp HD pictures, good standard definition pictures, good sound

Far too expensive, slight green tone to bright images, needs work to get the best from it, very limited viewing angle
