Summary: While finally deserving the "Smooth" descriptor, Mitsubishi's 120Hz LT-46148 LCD TV still leaves a few picture quality issues up in the air.
Pros: Extremely compact, "all-picture" design; NetCommand feature can emulate a universal remote; relatively accurate primary colors; dejudder processing generally free of artifacts; four HDMI and three component-video inputs.
Cons: Expensive; produces a lighter shade of black; greenish tinge to grayscale that cannot be adjusted; dejudder processing kicks in and out abruptly; no PC input.
Summary: HD Noise Test A - PASS
HD Noise Test B - FAIL
For either test the noise feature was set on high since that was the only setting providing a substantial improvement worthy of the effort. It gets a PASS on the flower for reducing noise while preserving detail. It gets a FAIL on the sail boat due to a slight trailing blur of the birds that fly through.
Summary: If you are a videophile intending to ISF calibrate, looking for the best performance and accurate imaging from a display, this is not the right product for that application. As noted in the "
" follow-up piece, the response is a mixed bag of results and the product lacks the necessary controls to correct errors.
If you are looking for some good performance, accuracy is not required and you will not be ISF calibrating, then this display is worthy of your consideration.
Summary: The Mitsubishi LT-46148 delivers a bright, colorful picture and provides a capable set of image adjustment tools to keep it looking good. In a home theater setting, the integrated audio should be replaced with a separate sound system.
