Toshiba SV670

The Good Costs less than most LED-based LCDs with local dimming; delivers deep black levels; relatively accurate color; extensive picture adjustments; can separate anti-blurring and dejudder functions; plenty of connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input; eye-catching design

The Bad Blooming more noticeable than on other LED-based LCDs; backlight fluctuates; poor off-angle performance; glossy screen reflects ambient light; benefits of 240Hz difficult to discern.

The Bottom Line Albeit slightly less impressive than other LED-based LCDs with local dimming, the Toshiba SV670U also costs less and still gives great blacks.

Toshiba SV670

Editors' note (March 4, 2010): The rating on this product has been lowered because of changes in the competitive marketplace, including the release of 2010 models. The review has not otherwise been modified. Click here for more information.

At the high end of the LCD TV cost spectrum sits models equipped with LED backlighting. Whether edge-lit or local dimming, these sets command a price premium and deliver somewhat better energy efficiency and markedly better black level performance than standard LCD TVs. But with black levels on par with plasma comes a price in the form of blooming, subpar off-angle performance and, in the case of the Toshiba SV670U series, an overactive backlight. On the flipside it still delivers those inky blacks, along with accurate color and solid video processing. The Toshiba SV670U can get you into the LED game for less, and for LCD-over-plasma fans who crave black levels, that's reason enough to consider one.
