Review from Home Theater Magazine

Review from Toshiba REGZA 46SV670U LCD HDTV

Home Theater Magazine Reviews If you're a video purist, you might be put off by the Toshiba's few technical shortcomings. But if you're looking for a great LCD set for a price that, while not cheap, is more affordable than most of the competition, this might just be a winner for you. It's one of the best-looking sets we've reviewed, and possibly the best ever from Toshiba. Highly recommended. Read the full review at

This TV was on my short list as soon as it was announced. It's a beautiful glossy black TV, with a subtle infused blue around the edges. The blue is only really visible in certain light, otherwise it just looks glossy black, but the TV looks beautiful either way. I don't care much for the "mole" that sticks down on the bottom left of the TV as I'm a fan of symmetry, however this is still a gorgeous TV.
The LH90 series is LG's flagship LCD this year featuring backlit "local dimming" LED's, and in my IMO it's one of the best buys on the market. Local Dimming allows for deeper blacks, that rival good plasmas, and easily beat normal non LED LCD's. The picture on the this TV is fantastic. Beginning last year and continuing this year, LG offers more picture/color adjustments then any other manufacturer. Colors are great out of the box, and your video modes include Standard, Natural, THX Cinema, Sport, Game or Vivid. In addition there are two Expert modes where you can create and save the exact picture you want. Also there is an intelligent sensor mode that automatically adjusts the picture for you based on the ambient light in the room. The OSD menus are color and icon driven and very easy to use. They are much better then what is offered by most other manufacturers. The OSD menus and pictures adjustments is one area where LG trumps all other manufacturers. I would rate Samsung second in this regard.
Connections are good and notably feature 4 HDMI ports and a USB port. You can plug in your flash drive to the USB port, and leave it there if you want. I have yet to be able to get my videos to play from the flash drive, and that is the only knock I have against the TV. Pictures and MP3s worked fine.

Wonderful set. Picture is stunning with 1080 and 720 sources and looks good even with standard def. Set-up was straight forward. There is a picture wizard that gets you reasonable initial picture settings. Black levels are truly black, and depending on your brightness setting, you can make an all-black screen look like the TV is off. Colors appear to be accurate. The sweet-spot is quite wide, but once beyond 45 degrees or so off center, the blacks and colors fade a small amount. This being said, the picture is still quite good as you approach 70-80 degrees off center, and unless you are a true videophile, you won't really notice that much. The matte screen was a selling point for me as we have a large window across from the TV and it doesn't pose any viewing problems even with the sun shining right on the TV.

We also have an LG blue-ray player and the Simplink function works great. When you turn on the blue-ray player, the TV turns on and the input switches to the player automatically. Pretty neat.

I would definitely recommend this set to my friends.

I went through 4 HDTVs before getting this one. I knew I wanted 1080p and 240 Hz. I went to a local furniture store and got the Sony 46Z5100. When i got it home, I loved it, until the sun went down. In darker rooms, the backlight shines through and creates uneven colors and bright spots in darker display scenes. I got online and found out this is a common problem with the Sony LCDs.
I took it back and the sales rep talked me into a toshiba 1080p, 240hz tv. JUNK! I hated it. It was too bright and the colors were saturated. I took it back and decided to go to BB.
When I first went into BB my eyes were drawn to this LG, but the sales guy talked me into the Samsung 850. I took the Samsung home and it kept powering off every 2 hours. I took the Samsung back to swap it out and another sales guy said, "oh yeah, we have that proble with these Samsungs."
So I went and spoke to the first BB sales guy and he told me to get the Sony 46ZX5100 again. He swore that I wouldn't have the backlight issue again. So, like and idiot, I got another Sony. Sure enough, I was getting the blotchy flashlighting effect. So I took it back and told them that I want the TV I was drawn to in the first place. Before I took the last Sony back, I kept it for a week and did research on the LG. I even took my XBOX 360 into the store and hooked it up to the store model. I loved it in the store. The 240hz, although not true 240HZ, looked just as good as the Sony. The thing I loved was the colors of the LG and the local dimming. B-E-A utiful!! Better color than the sony, the samsung, and the Toshiba combined. No joke.

The only concern I had from the reviews was the sound sync issue.

This is a great TV. It's large. It's 240Hz for smooth motion. The quality of the color is excellent when you select the THX picture setting. The menu is simple for things like channel selection, but it has the advanced picture settings when you need to do minor tweaks to the picture quality.

I was trying to decide between the Samsung 8000 series and this one. The Samsung model had network connectivity, but no Netflix connectivity. Other LG models had Netflix connectivity, but this model has no network connectivity. The Samsung had a glossy display, and the LG has a glossy border with a matte finish for the display. Due to the lighting in the room with the TV, the matte finish made more sense to reduce the reflections from the lights in the room. Both have no significant picture difference between them, and they're among the best picture quality you can currently find. The Samsung is much thinner and lighter than the LG model. Both currently have the lowest energy consumption ratings for their size, and that's because of the LED light usage in the TV. The LG model has no S-video input, but it has several HDMI inputs, which is what you really need.

The biggest difference between the two models was price. This LG TV was a few hundred dollars cheaper for the same picture quality. At least I couldn't see the difference in various TV stores.

Some other people mentioned that there were some sound sync issues, but I haven't noticed it (with and without my audio receiver). Based on other reviews, it seems like it depends on the version of the TV firmware version and the video devices you're using. You can request an update if you encounter it, but with over the air TV and the Dish Network receiver, it wasn't a problem.
