    Unless you want an inch thin LCD TV, this should be your TV of choice. I went to Sixth Avenue where they had an exceptionally large selection of LCD and Plasma TVs. This TV had the best picture quality of any LCD TV they had. I was planning on getting a Samsung 1080P 120Hz thin LED TV (could not quite swallow the price of the 240Hz) model until I read reviews of streaks in the picture quality when watching the TV in a dark room. I then moved on to the less expensive non LED Samsung 240Hz LCD TV which is still $400 more than this Toshiba. Luckily, the salesperson asked me to take a look at this TV first. This TV is back-lit LED which makes the TV thicker, but provides better picture quality than the side-lit LEDs in the thin Samsung. The 240Hz was a real bonus–especially in a TV that sells for this price. I have had the TV for a month now and could not be happier with it. I have had friends that visit comment that this TV has the best picture quality they have ever seen in any TV. This is the best 46-inch LCD TV you can buy that sells for a price that’s unbelievably low when compared to the competition. It might not be the thinnest LCD LED TV, but it does have the best quality picture in any LCD TV. It is just one awesome TV.

    Ordered this TV around the beginning of August. Amazon shipping said to expect it on the 14th. It arrived on the 12th, lucky I had just returned home because I was all set for the 14th! Anyway, The delivery guy carries it in, takes it out of the box and set it on the stand for my old Sony Bravia.(Since I didn’t put the new stand together yet. He then helps me take the old TV down to its new location in the basement rec room. (Nice of him!) We plug in the new Toshiba and I connect it to my cable HD DVR box with the new HDMI cable I also purchased from Amazon. It works! Beautifully! The sound is better than expected. The picture, especially the HD channels is great and the colors and contrast are fantastic. Everything I expected and more. The Dolby sound leveling seems to work (still checking). Our collection of wide screen DVD’s looks great. Maybe because of the Resolution+ upscaling. So check out all the features and compare the price with the only LED TV somewhat similar: Sony’s BR8 series. I think you’ll be very pleased with this new Toshiba 46SV670U (55SV670U is similar). By the way, mine was manufactured in JULY 2009!

    I’ll update this if problems develop.

    Well, it’s now October and this TV is still the best. And it’s great to be able to plug in a SD picture card and watch a slideshow or plug in an USB flash drive and play music or other media.

    I’ll update this if problems develop.

    1st, let me say this, I upgraded from the Toshiba 46XV545U 120Hz LCD T.V. (bought in April 2009, it got stolen :( “Last year’s model”). The picture on this one is noticeably better. In fact, it is awesome, BUT this TV has a couple drawbacks that people should be aware of, and I think its why it is $700 off its MSRP only a few months after it came out:

    1) Case size: If you’re expecting one of those “thin” LED backlit LCDs like Samsung’s, look elsewhere. This TV is 4-6″ thick, thicker even than the straight LCD I replaced. Also, it has about 3-1/2″ fascia around the screen itself. This is also much more than my old TV, presumably to hold the LED backlights. So, the case is bigger. This fact, combined with the design, makes it look old, like a 5 year old LCD. I much preferred my old Toshiba in terms of design.

    2) Glare. Maybe I didn’t look closely enough at the description, but my last Toshiba had a matte finish on the screen, which given my sunny living room, was a huge plus and should not be underestimated. This TV has a glossy finish on the screen, which results in lots of glare. This affects watching TV during the day big time and unless you have a dark media room, you need to be aware of this.

    3) Backlight “halo” around bright objects on dark backgrounds, flickering. UPDATE: This problem was fixed by a firmware update, so disregard. Picture great now. There is still some halo effect around bright lights on dark screen, but this is endemic to local dimming LED technology. Its basically the best they can do right now. Much better than the alternative!

    UPDATE: I have had the TV for a little over a month now 1/14/10, and I have to say I really love the picture. It is truly one of the best you can possible get in this price range. The DynaLight feature (local dimming technology for the LED backlights) make the blacks very dark once I got the firmward update from Toshiba. Highly recommend, so long as you’re aware of the size of the TV and the glare issue.

    I have begun to notice some tinny, buzz sound from the TVs internal speakers that might be what another reviewer referred to as a problem with audio coming in on HDMI after a couple of hours. All my inputs are HDMI, so this might be the issue. I usually use external speakers, so this isn’t a problem for me. I’ll check on a firmware update in a couple months. Otherwise, its a great TV, especially at today’s price!!

  4. I’m really impressed with the quality of the image of this television, especially given the price I paid. I had been looking at the Samsung LED panels, and although they were beautiful and vibrant, the increase in image quality didn’t seem commensurate to the increase in price. So, I had given up on getting an LED-backlit panel, until I discovered this Toshiba. It was just released, and I was a little nervous about getting it sight-unseen, but I decided to take the plunge, and I’m glad I did.

    The colors really pop out. The LED backlighting makes a *huge* difference for blacks. On my old 46-inch TV (a Sharp AQUOS), when watching dark movies, or standard-def stuff with black bars, the blacks would glow pretty noticeably in a dark room. Of course, this was par for the course for an LCD panel at that time, and it wasn’t the worst thing ever.

    With the proper configuration on this Toshiba panel, when viewing SD content in a dark room, the black bars fade into the darkness almost perfectly. Sometimes you can notice the selective backlighting. If there is a small bright object on a black background, it will have a slight aura from the section of backlight being on. If you connect a computer, set a black screen and move a white mouse pointer around, you can actually identify the backlighting elements. It’s more cool, than annoying. I guess because of the way the human eye works, you really don’t notice the panels/auras under normal viewing.

    The media player functionality is pretty much worthless… it wouldn’t play any of the movie files that I had on hand. Since I have an HTPC attached, it’s not much of an issue. I basically bought the TV to function as a monitor.


    *Nice solid blacks due to the dynamic backlighting

    *SD content from my Wii and DVDs displays beautifully.

    *Plenty of connections

    *Lots of complicated picture settings. I’m not a pro when it comes to calibration and viewing configuration, so my opinion is less valuable here.

    *Pretty decent sound for stock TV speakers.

    *Power-saving off mode to reduce parasitic power drain

    *Pretty low power for the size under normal operation


    *The VGA input doesn’t support HD resolution (!!) — luckily, all of my computers have DVI/HDMI output

    *Sleeping the display (when a computer is attached, eg) results in an annoying “No Video Signal” announcement bar to be displayed.

    *Sleeping the display also turns off sound (this is a minor nitpick, and soon won’t matter since I’ll have an external sound system)

    *Sometimes the image size options don’t suffice for getting the picture to fill the screen properly. I really miss the setting on the AQUOS that widened things more as you approach the side. It usually resulted in a full-screen effect for SD content. The Toshiba options are to cut off part of the screen, or have black bars. Of course, due to the LED backlighting, the black bars are not noticeable which is nice.

    I purchased this TV on Jan 2, 2010. This is a great TV and the picture is awesome. The on screen menu is okay and slightly complicated for those that are not tech savvy and there are many things in the book you really need to read.

    This TV has the newest in technology when it comes to picture quality and it could have improved on the sound quality, but most of us having TVs like this hooked up with surround sound systems. The speakers are hidden and there are preset sound outputs you can have to create standard and simulated surround sound from two speakers.

    Other than the picture, the TV has an issue with the sound. When you play a DVD disc from a regular DVD player with HDMI capabilites to this TV, the sound garbles and reverberation begins afer an hour of play. Toshiba America says I am and a group of people have this rare problem. They did not offer to fix it and they said they were working on the problem. What does that sound like to you?

    So, I purchased the newest Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-ray player and played a blu-ray movie with the sound output from the TV and the sound never garbled throughout the movie or even skipped a beat, Great!

    I then played a regular DVD disc on the blu-ray player and after an hour of play, the sound starts garbling from the TV again. Toshiba had instructed me to turn off certain features to prevent this, under the HDMI settings, you are to turn off Deep color, lip sync and instaport. If it did not resolve the issue then use RGB (red,green and Blue) cables instead of the HDMI cable and for the sound, use left/right audio patch cords.

    We as consumers or customers should not have to fiddle around with this.

    We buy these expensive TVs to utilize the newest technology, HDMI.

    The cabling is not an issue. The versions of cabling is another gimmic for manufacturers to charge you

    big money for pretty cables.

    I was going to retire the older DVD player, but instead kept it to play DVD disc with the RGB cabling and the sound connected through my stereo so I did not have to keep dealing with the garbled sound. I have over 600 DVD movies. I now have one blu-ray player with no blu-ray discs.

    So, you make the choice. Do you want to be apart of the rare group of people with this problem and how will you know if yo are getting a good set or not.
