The Toshiba REGZA Cinema Series 46SV670U is a very attractive HDTV. It is one
of the most advanced TVs Toshiba has ever produced. Its advanced FocaLight LED
Backlight System with Local Dimming, and stunning new Deep Lagoon Design with
Infinity Flush Front, create the perfect combination of high quality and stylish
appeal. It's dimensions are 4.4 x 45.6 x 28.5 inches and it weighs nearly
The Toshiba REGZA Cinema Series 46SV670U comes with an advanced display
technology. With a full matrix of lights across the entire screen, the LEDs can
turn into a brightly lit portion of the screen and off in dark portions.
Another key spec for LCD HDTVs is the refresh rate. Toshiba now offers ClearScan
240 with backlight scanning to close the gap with plasmas even more. Note : this
is not a true 240Hz frame rate, since it combines a 120Hz frame rate with
backlight scanning to create the effect. Toshiba used all its tech tricks to
improve picture quality, including a PixelPure 5G 14-bit processor, along with
the LED backlighting and faster frame rate. It also comes with 4 HDMI Digital
Inputs (1 Side) with InstaPort and REGZA-LINK2.
The Toshiba REGZA Cinema Series 46SV670U comes with plenty of connectivity. The back panel starts with three HDMI inputs, two component-video, one VGA-style PC (1,280 x 1,024 maximum resolution), one AV input with composite and S-Video, along with digital and analog audio outputs. The side panel sports a fourth HDMI, another AV input with composite video, USB and SD card slots. While the Toshiba lacks picture-in-picture, it does offer a media reader function that can handle digital photos and music stored on USB sticks or SD cards (the card reader only handles photos). Fans of Divx will appreciate that the USB reader can also handle videos in that format (we didn't test this feature). However there are some limitations - Blooming is more noticeable than on other LED-based LCDs; backlight fluctuates; poor off-angle performance; glossy screen reflects ambient light and benefits of 240Hz are difficult to discern.
Great Gift For
Those who are looking for a TV with excellent design and best picture quality.
