Product Details
Description
46 LCD TV offers smoother transitions between color-to-color changes, and to display subtle shade differences, Toshiba's new 10-bit LCD panel offers 64 times the levels of color reproduction than on an 8-bit panel. With full HD, there is no need to scale down a 1080 signal. With twice the pixel resolution of 720p HD models, Full HD creates the pinnacle in picture quality.

Toshiba Designed an Excellent LCD!!!
5 Star Review   By member SuperDooperCooper - Jul 15, 2008   

Strengths: * Plethora of inputs. * Excellent 10-bit panel. Gradation between colors unnoticeable. * Native mode (no cropping of pixels). * More than ample picture adjustments. * Aesthetically looks AWESOME!

Weakness: * VGA Input lacks some useful video modes, namely a few 16:9 or 16:10 resolutions --> hooking a PC up over VGA may not give you the desired res (e.g. no 1680x1024 or 1080p). Not an issue with HDMI.

I am thoroughly pleased with this Toshiba 46RF350U -- it is a top notch set. The menu system is easy and straight-forward. The picture out-of-the-box is pretty good, but with some adjustment/calibration, it is excellent. I haven't finished completely setting up/calibrating the set, mainly cause I've spent what little time I have with the TV to WATCH, instead of fiddle. But the little tweaking I have done has helped a lot. Might I suggest you pick up a copy of Digital Video Essentials or Avia on DVD/Blu-Rayand set up your set that way!! Everyone has a preference, but I like sharpness down so that edges don't appear fake or are less likely to have ringing present. Also, brightness and contrast are always jacked way up from the manufacturer; turn them down and the picture becomes much more pleasing/lifelike. All that being said, I must say I've watched the Olympic Trials, some US Open (golf), Wimbledon, and a few sitcoms, and everything looks great. DVDs look great. I haven't hooked up Blu-Ray to the set yet, but if OTA broadcasts look as good as they do, I can only imagine what a Pixar BR would look like. That will be my next purchase. Lastly, I got a great deal on this because it was last years model, and NewEgg had a special deal on it the day I bought it. So, that just sweetens the whole thing. The reason I opted for last year's model is that it has the 10-bit panel, whereas to the best of my knowledge, the new models are 8-bit. There are arguments as to whether this is really important, but I look at it this way: I was able to get the 10-bit panel for less $$ than the current 8-bit panel. Most other features are the same, so I think I made the right choice. In the words of Ferris Bueller (albeit referring to the Ferrari): "It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up." Toshiba made a winner here. I regret that HD-DVD didn't survive so I could give that a test run with this set!

Can't go wrong with the regza line
4 Star Review   By member nflan113 - Jul 5, 2008   

Strengths: Flexibility of picture modes, remote control is outstanding, picture top notch

Weakness: transition between modes quirky

I bought this TV primarily because it fits in my built-in cabinet space constructed for a "deep dish" 37 " TV. I've read the comments on color and rendering and don't see them in my set at all. Colors are tremendous and accurate. I do have a fairly small viewing room though. The Remote has been a great addition, consolidated 3 other remotes including the cable, DVD, VCR and TV into one. My wife has adapted to it as well. I recommend this set to anyone wanting to upgrade to HD digital content. And it plays my 480i DVD's for my children perfectly too.

Toshiba Regza 46RF350U
5 Star Review   By member jgeorge767 - Apr 2, 2008   

Strengths: Great Tv!!! Wonderful picture with over the air antenna or my Comcast cable box with high def (1080i). Fantastic performance and picture with a HP slimline pc with 1080p blue-ray player.

Weakness: Speakers, if you buy this, you must have a surround system.

I bought this to replace an older regza 42", and get the 1080p performance out of my Slimline. The narrow bezel allowed me to up-size to 46", and it fits like a glove in the entertainment center. No glare on screen with the lcd and almost unlimited options to adjust the picture quality. Intuitive set-up and menu, very user friendly. I would highly recommend it to friends/relatives.

Toshiba 46RF350U
5 Star Review   By member cjkjc123 - Mar 20, 2008   

Strengths: Excellent picture and sound. Bright colors, excellent contrast, deep blacks. Great with HDTV signal and HD DVD.

Weakness: None that I can see or hear.

I already have two other 1080P HD TV's, one an LCD and one a DLP. This set has the best picture of all. The narrow bezel let me fit this 46" screen into a space that some 42" LCD's would not fit. The cost of the set was low compared to other models with similar features. I have had excellent results with other Toshiba products.

This TV is BEAUTIFUL!!!
5 Star Review   By member nashmeade - Feb 4, 2008   

Strengths: AWESOME colors! No blur to speak of while watching sports or action-related video

Weakness: Remote signal isn't as strong as I would like it to be.

This was my first HDTV purchase and it was definitely worth the wait. This TV fit perfectly in entertainment center designed to fit a 42" TV. The colors are so beautiful; I don't know how I lived without this TV before! The only down side I can see is that the remote isn't as strong as it should be, but you can certainly fix this with a "All-in-One Remote." I just watched Super Bowl XLII yesterday and it was amazing! The response time was great and I never saw any blurred pixelation! I definitely recommend this TV to anyone!
