Runco Crystal Portfolio CX-52HD LCD HDTV
The Basics: Runco recently added 52- and 57-inch models to their Crystal Portfolio LCD lineup, which is sold exclusively through custom-installation channels. This 52-inch, 1080p LCD forgoes Runco’s common two-piece design (with a monitor and outboard controller) and incorporates the connection panel and processing element into the LCD itself, along with an NTSC/ATSC tuner that makes this a true television. Features include the use of Runco’s ViViX processing to scale all sources to the panel’s 1080p resolution, a manual adjustable backlight, an Auto Backlight feature that adjusts the light output automatically based on the room’s lighting conditions, an ISF calibration mode that allows your installer to calibrate the image for daytime and nighttime viewing, advanced PIP functions and four aspect ratio options (4:3, Letterbox, Anamorphic and VirtualWide). There is no native aspect ratio mode to present 1080i/1080p images with zero overscan. ...

Philips 42PFL7432D LCD HDTV
The Basics: This 42-inch, 1080p LCD includes Philips’ popular Ambilight system, as well as Perfect Pixel HD processing and a USB port through which you can perform firmware updates and play JPEG/MP3 files. It does not offer the 120Hz technology found in the company’s higher-end 9732D Series. Philips’ Settings Assistant automatically makes adjustments to picture controls by showing you a series of split-screen images; as you select which image you prefer, the TV adjusts the picture parameters accordingly. This TV offers a decent amount of image adjustments, including direct access to white-balance controls, but it lacks an adjustable backlight, offering only a light sensor that automatically adjusts image brightness based on your room’s lighting conditions. The connection panel lacks a PC input, but includes three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24. In addition to a digital audio output (a common feature ...

JVC Procision LT-47X898 LCD HDTV
The Basics: JVC’s Procision line represents the company’s highest-end offerings in both the TV and projector markets. These products were developed for the custom-installation and high-end consumer channels, and they feature JVC’s most advanced technologies. First and foremost, in the case of this 47-inch 1080p model, is the inclusion of Clear Motion Drive II 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur. The TV also uses JVC’s 32-bit Genessa processing chip and a 10-bit panel, and features a number of advanced picture controls.  The Theater Pro II menu offers advanced color, detail, noise-reduction and gamma controls. The energy-saver control is actually an adjustable backlight. Smart Picture adjusts the image’s brightness, based on the average picture level of the content, while the Smart Sensor adjusts the image’s brightness based on your room’s lighting conditions. ...

Samsung LN-T4071F LCD HDTV
Introduction I find it amazing how far video quality has come in such a short amount of time. It seems only yesterday that I was reading and lusting over flat panel EDTVs that cost more than I made in a year to today’s endless buffet of HD sets at prices my 16-year-old brother can afford. It appears, at least for the time being, that 1080p is the Holy Grail for all things HD video. However, not wanting to rest on their laurels, manufacturers have pioneered new ways of making 1080p stronger, faster, better. Now, your 1080p display has to have 120Hz refresh rate and be able to accept a native 24p signal from today’s leading-edge HD sources. I was first introduced to 120Hz earlier this year with the Sony Bravia KDS-55A3000 rear-projection TV, which I thought was utterly fantastic. I was ...

Samsung LN-T4681F 46-inch LCD HDTV
Introduction Oh, dreaded backlight, what a bane you’ve been to manufacturers trying to perfect the evolution of the LCD as a home theater display technology. Sure, you provide the illumination required that produces an image on the screen, but you’re also responsible for LCD’s two primary drawbacks compared with other display technologies: black level and motion blur. Since LCD first crossed over from the PC to the TV screen, designers have experimented with technologies to reduce black-level and motion limitations. In-plane switching changed the orientation of the liquid crystals to block the light differently, in hopes that this would improve black level and viewing angle. The adjustable backlight lets you turn down the light’s brightness to get a better black level, while a flashing backlight can provide the break between frames that your eyes need to reduce motion blur. The hot ...
