Toshiba ZV650U

 

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.

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

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.

The 55-inch Toshiba Regza 55ZV650U LCD TV ($2,399.99 list) features a detail-enhancing backlighting system that lets its 120-Hz display technology nearly match the picture clarity of the latest 240-Hz LCDs, but at a more affordable price. (Traditional...

Energy-efficient. Excellent picture controls. Good value

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

The Toshiba Regza 55ZV650U produces an impressively detailed picture, but it's not ideal for watching in dimly lit rooms.

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,...
