Toshiba 46XV648U LCD HDTV Review
The Toshiba 46XV648U yielded excellent performance scores in nearly every lab test, sending it to the front of the class.
The design of the Toshiba 46XV648U is, on the whole, unremarkable. The bezel is made of highly reflective black plastic, with a not terribly attractive silvery pattern along the bottom edge. The Toshiba logo at the bottom illuminates, but you can turn that off in the menu if it's too distracting.
The back of the Toshiba 46XV648U has most of the ports located along the far edge, which is good, because the stand does not swivel. The really tricky port to reach here is the cable/antenna. Hopefully, you won't have to change that very often.
From the side, you can see that the Toshiba 46XV648U is not terribly thin, but not too fat either. All the onboard controls are located on the right side, along with the side ports.
The base does not swivel, which can make it hard to service a wide room. Also, it makes it more difficult to access the back ports.
The onboard controls are all located on the right side of the Toshiba 46XV648U. The buttons are quite small, and crowded arrangement makes it difficult to make any changes without looking.
The remote control that ships with the Toshiba 46XV648U is unremarkable. Most of the buttons are placed well, and some are more frustrating. However, we're quite pleased that the remote is universally compatible with other AV devices.
In the Box
The Toshiba 46XV648U ships with a remote control, batteries, an AV cable, the stand, and the instruction manual. There are no included data cables or even a screen wipe.
