The automatic settings which adjust to any broadcast variances is phenominal....after taking the time to understand it's quirks I was very impressed and pleased with the quality of the picture.
A little difficult to understand when attempting to adjust settings to personal preferences....when changing inputs and settings (because of overlap of capabilities) it would clear previous settings. Once I figured it out though it worked great!

Being a long time fan of Toshiba's quality....I had been monitoring reviews on the WEB, since the XV545 series appeared on the market, to see how the current line stacked up against the competition. Frankly I'm dissappointed in some of the so called professional or ediotorial type reviews. They obviously didn't take the time to understand the plethora of adjustments available in the XV545 series. One professional reviewing group (on the 46XV545U) stated it lacked refinement for adjusting color preferances.....this statement IMHO lacked investigative skills into a thoroughly thought out and sophisticated piece of equipment!. Granted, the owners manual and on-screen menu can be confusing and to some degree frustrating....it took me a few hours to figure out that certain settings would cancel out or GRAY OUT other menu functions that I wanted to access for adjusting...but once I realized what was occuring it was relatively easy to set up my preferences.
The picture and quality of sound IMHO defintely compares with and is competative to all the other manufactures of LCD's today. I could have spent far more on some other manufacturer that may have given me more bling....but I don't believe that the picture quality could have improved significantly to warrant the extra money by my thinking. My expectations are that it will maintain Toshiba's well established reputation of long years of flawless use.....I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the newest Toshiba line of LCD's to friends and family?!
