Toshiba 46RF350U LCD HDTV
The Basics: The 46RF350U is one of the first LCDs to sport Toshiba’s Super Narrow Bezel design. As the name suggests, this design minimizes the amount of visible frame surrounding the 46-inch screen. Less than an inch of high-gloss-black frame is visible around the screen’s edges, and a thin SoundStrip 2 speaker bar runs discreetly along the bottom panel. The TV uses Toshiba’s PixelPure 3G 14-bit processing and CineSpeed 10-bit LCD panel, and it has several advanced picture controls: an adjustable backlight, direct color-temperature adjustment to the TV’s blue/green drive and a ColorMaster system that allows for precise tweaking of the primary and secondary color points. The 46RF350U has three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, and it offers automatic aspect ratio detection and numerous aspect ratio options, including a Native mode to display 1080i/1080p images with no overscan. The Upside: Reports on ...

Sony Bravia KDL-40W3000 LCD HDTV
The Basics: In terms of price, the W Series falls in the middle of Sony’s LCD lineup, yet it offers many of the same technologies and features found in the company’s higher-end XBR4 and XBR5 lines. Like its higher-end brethren, this 40-inch 1080p model includes a 10-bit processor and 10-bit display to improve color transitions and lessen the appearance of digital noise, and it offers both standard and wide color-space modes, allowing you to choose between colors that are more saturated and ones that are more accurate. This TV also has an adjustable backlight and light sensor to tailor its brightness and black levels based on your viewing environment. It uses Sony’s popular XrossMediaBar and offers both side-by-side and picture-in-picture viewing options. The most notable difference between the W Series and the higher-end lines is the lack of Motionflow 120Hz technology. The ...

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. ...

Pioneer PDP-5080HD Plasma HDTV
The Basics: This product hails from Pioneer’s excellent lineup of KURO plasma HDTVs, which includes a standard KURO brand and a higher-end Elite KURO brand. Part of the standard KURO brand and one of the less expensive models in the line, the PDP-5080HD has a 1365 x 768 resolution, as opposed to 1920 x 1080. However, in most other respects, it is a full-featured HDTV. Features include the use of Pioneer’s ASIC video processing circuitry and two compelling PureCinema film-processing modes. The Advance mode converts 24-frames-per-second film to 72 fps to reduce judder, and the Smooth mode appears to interpolate frames (like a 120Hz TV) to render even smoother motion. The TV offers a nice assortment of image adjustments, including an Optimum picture mode that uses the TV’s built-in light sensor to automatically tailor the image to your room’s lighting conditions. There’s ...

Panasonic TH-58PZ700U Plasma HDTV
The Basics: The 700U Series is a step down from Panasonic’s top 2007 line, the 750U Series, so these TVs offer fewer features, but cost less money. Unlike the similar 750U model, this 58-inch, 1080p model lacks the Pro Setting and Studio Reference mode. It has one less HDMI input than the 750U and does not offer a split-screen viewing option.   Like many new Panasonic models, this TV sports an SD card slot through which you can display photos and view AVCHD video; it’s also compatible with the GalleryPlayer system that lets you display professional photographs and works of art. The TH-58PZ700U has two HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 (but not 1080p/24). Aspect-ratio options include the ability to display 1080i/1080p images with no overscan. The anti-reflective screen helps cut down on light reflections off the plasma glass, but there are no features to ...
