Thanks for asking the DT Certification question - I have the same question myself and have not been able to locate an answer. Is there anyone who can provide one for us?
I am interested in the Toshiba Regza 52RV535U, which currently is available for only $1199 at Amazon.com. Its 42" sibling received quite a good review from http://www.hdtvsolutions.com and was well-rated in this month's/March 2009 Consumer Reports issue on The Best Televisions. However, I noticed that CNET states the Toshiba RV535u series does not have the Digital Television Certification. I want to know what that means, and whether it matters in the end.
As far as the reviews I have found are concerned, for the money the Toshiba has a superior high-def picture with only minor settings tweaking, the perfect choice for the money for someone like me who does not need all of the bells and whistles/additional features. I just want the great high-def image at the best price, and if the lack of DT Certification is of consequence, I need to know in order to make an informed purchasing decision.
Any thoughts would be sincerely appreciated.
Thanks so much,
