Conclusion

The Toshiba Regza 42ZV650U ($1299 MSRP) is a good television, but not a great television. There are many, many options for adjusting motion performance, color, noise reduction, audio performance, and more. But the core test data shows that the Toshiba 42ZV650U is only a decent performer in key areas like black levels and contrast ratio. The color performance, thankfully, is much better.

Overall, the Toshiba 42ZV650U gets the job done. It has a great selection of ports for home entertainment systems (though it lacks internet connectivity) and the power consumption is modest. It has its faults, but you'll likely be happy with it in the long run.
