Formats

The Toshiba 46XV648U is a native 1080p television. It can, of course, display all other NTSC formats with no problem.

Viewing Angle

The Toshiba 46XV648U has a mediocre viewing angle, a common ailment of LCD displays. It lost a significant portion of its contrast ratio at approximately 48 degrees (or 24 degrees from center on either side). This is a little lower than average, even for an LCD, but only by a few degrees.

Reflectance

The Toshiba 46XV648U is pretty good at avoiding annoying glare from lights in the room. If a light is facing the screen dead-on (hopefully, a rare occurrence) it results in a huge star burst pattern. But as soon as the angle changes, the pattern disappears and the screen does a good job of deflecting light.

Video Processing

The Toshiba 46XV648U has a handful or processing features that you, the user, can turn on and off at will. We recommend that you read our impressions, then experiment on your own. Settings can and should be modified depending on the type of content you're watching.
