Toshiba 47ZV650U

 

The Toshiba the Toshiba 47ZV650U ($1300, as of 09/20/09) is a pleasant-looking HDTV that delivers a more than acceptable viewing experience, but its rough edges need smoothing, and it's short on extras.

Reasonably good picture ; Very good remote control

No onlne version of manual ; Difficult to use

The Toshiba 47ZV650U features solid picture quality, but it could be easier to use.

Toshiba Regza 55ZV650U

 

The 55-inch Toshiba 55ZV650U LCD HDTV delivers a detailed, big-screen viewing experience at an attractive price.

Energy-efficient. Excellent picture controls. Good value.

Lackluster dark-room contrast. Under-optimized movie picture preset.

Toshiba ZV650U review: Toshiba ZV650U

 

Relatively inexpensive for a TV with a 240Hz refresh rate effect; accurate color; can separate antiblurring and dejudder functions; extensive picture settings; solid connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input; eye-catching styling.

Produces light black levels; somewhat uneven screen uniformity; benefits of 240Hz effect difficult to discern; glossy screen reflects ambient light.

Although subpar black levels keep it from besting the LCD champs, the Toshiba ZV650U series is still one of the better values among TVs with a 240Hz effect.

The Toshiba Regza 2ZV650U ($1299 MSRP) is a 42-inch, 1080p LCD television. While not necessarily cheap, you get a fair amount for your money. The 42ZV650U is filled to the brim with options for fine-tuning your color, motion, noise reduction, and more....

The 42ZV650U is a good looking TV, all told. Rather than settling for the standard black box, the designers added a halftone dot pattern that fades to the edges. That neck looks nice and thin, huh? Well, we're sorry to report that despite appearances,...

Review: Toshiba 47ZV650U HDTV

 

Toshiba's 47ZV650U is a pleasant-looking 47-inch HDTV that delivers a more than acceptable viewing experience, but its rough edges need smoothing, and it's short on extras.

Reasonably good picture ; Very good remote control

Difficult to use ; No online version of manual

The 47ZV650U did moderately well in four out of five benchmark tests. Instead of actual movie and television content, the benchmarks use specially designed moving and still images intended to catch certain problems common in HDTVs. But this Toshiba...
