Excerpt: We loved this 52-inch Toshiba’s narrow-bezel case. But its LCD panel pulsed visibly between dark and light movie scenes — a result of Toshiba’s DynaLight feature varying the set’s backlight in an attempt to increase contrast.
Pros: Decent color reproduction. Classy looking case. Blue light under the logo on the front offers three brightness levels. Seriously.
Cons: Even with separate noise reduction for MPEG vs. other digital formats, our test source looked noisy. Lots of trouble processing 24 frame-per-second HD sources.
Excerpt: At the top of Toshiba's considerable LCD lineup is the 52XF550U, a 52-incher with 1920x1080 resolution and a super-skinny bezel that puts more emphasis on the video image and lets it fit in smaller spaces than models with more cabinetry around the screen.
