Toshiba 55ZV650U Review: 55” LCD HDTV
Up for review: Toshiba 55ZV650U LCD TV. Toshiba is seeking to lead the HDTV market with the introduction of the ZV650 series. It has integrated many new technologies to make the images crisper and the sound smoother. The look has also received a makeover with the Deep Lagoon design. It gives the effect of sheer glass embodied with 3D pictures. The black bezel with invisible speakers gives a sleek look to the Toshiba 55ZV650U. The front panel looks smooth, without being spoilt by the presence of unnecessary buttons.
The ClearScan 240 is a major improvement in the Toshiba 55ZV650U. It gives the effect of 240 Hz without actually having it. What it does is that it combines the innovative backlight feature with 120Hz scan rate to give an enhanced 240 Hz feeling. Action scenes and any other pictures, which involve a fast movement of the frames, look better with this technology. A review says that judder has been done away in this HDTV. The images are sure to be more natural and clearer.

The audio has been taken care of by the Dolby Volume feature in the Toshiba 55ZV650U. This feature aims to rectify the problem of inconsistent volume. You must have noticed the sharp variation in volume when you change channels or when commercials come up. Well, this has been done away with. Now you will get a smooth sound, even if the source sound is very weak. It will boost the weak signals to give a better sound effect in the room.
There is nothing to beat the connectivity options of the Toshiba 55ZV650U. A review shows that there are 4 HDMI inputs in the HDTV. The Regza Link and the InstaPort features take care of the HDMI switching. There will be no time lost between switching from one HDMI input to another. A simple press of the remote button will do the needful. Other good connectivity features are the USB port and the SD card slot. The favorite photos can be watched on the TV screen and you can also watch videos from the camcorder.
The Toshiba 55ZV650U is sure to be a good bet for your money. The Toshiba brand name together with the great features will always keep you in good spirits.
