Toshiba 42SL417U LED LCD HDTV Review$899.00
The chart below can be a little misleading, unfortunately. We sample 255 input intensities across the greyscale to measure color temperature, and Toshiba 42SL417U managed to land most of those sample points in an "acceptable range." The chart below emphasizes the errors more than you might see them in real life. Hence the high score. More on how we test color temperature.
The Toshiba 42SL417U really failed us on the RGB color curve test. As you can see in the chart below, the TV would produce brightness up to a certain level and then just stay there, not displaying any more detail. We played around with the backlight, contrast, brightness, and every other setting, but we couldn't manage to get any more detail. The shadows and mid-tones look great, but the highlights are lost. More on how we test RGB curves.
The strips below are digital recreations of the response curves, compared to three similar TVs as well as ideal response curve.
