Toshiba 46SL417U Review - Page 2
Value Rating: 8.5/10
The 46SL417 is available for $1100 and change from authorized Internet retailers. We think it offers some very compelling features and qualities for this price. There is plenty of competition in this mid-range LED-LCD TV category including the Samsung UN46D6000, the Sony KDL46EX620, and the LG 47LV5500.
Overall Rating: 7.9/10
Calibration Notes: There are a great deal of picture setting controls and options for this price level TV. The one drawback is a 2 point white balance rather than 10. We were also overall impressed with the preset Picture Modes on this TV especially the Movie 1 and Movie 2 settings which will give you a respectable picture right out of the box.
|Picture Mode:||Movie 2|
|Advanced Picture Settings:|
|Noise Reduction:||MPEG NR: Low|
