Test Bench: Toshiba 47LZ196 Regza 47-inch LCD HDTV

 

5 foot-lamberts before calibration and 31.0 ftL after; users may want to use a different, brighter preset (Sports or Standard) when ambient light is strong.

Vibrant, natural color

Poor handling of noisy cable programs

Though not flawless, Toshiba's 47LZ196 delivers an excellent picture that puts it in the top tier of late-generation LCDs. What's more, its innovative features, sophisticated adjustments, and thoughtful remote are in a class by themselves.

Toshiba Cinema Series Pro 47LZ196 LCD Flat Panel

 

LCD is also ahead of plasma in one key respect- while 1080p pixel density is just now appearing on some very expensive plasmas, 1080p is becoming de rigeur at upper-mid level prices and even creeping closer to the bargain prices in some cases.

Toshiba 47LZ196 can be used in living rooms and bedrooms as Home Theater projectors and because of its medium size and low price it will be a good choice.

Great picture-Bad warranty.

but if something goes wrong with the set, as mine did, Toshiba is terrible with their warranty. The 47LZ196 I purchased developed 2 dark semi-circles on the screen after 3 months. Toshiba could not repair the problem and only offered $1500 credit for a...
