Subpar uniformity? Virtually every lcd tv on the market including the ones on his list suffer from this including a lot of the samsung and sony tvs. Its their panel in the toshiba.
The proprietary upconversion circuit he is referring to is the srt feature. He obviously didnt know how to use it. It can introduce noticeable edge enhancement when your setting is too high but in moderation it does improve 480/720 dvd picture.
Lackluster design? Why because it doesnt have toc ( which a lot of people hate), or scarlet around bezel ? It has a very nice black relatively thin bezel. Whats wrong with that? The controls are easily accessible on the side and you can actually see them to use them unlike the samsung 630 I had.
Here is something else he wrote:
"As do most LCD HDTVs available in 2008, the 46XV545U has a native resolution of 1080p. However, at this screen size it's very difficult to tell the difference between 1080p and lower resolutions. "
That is a ridiculous statement- is he blind?
So I think if you dont deduct points for what should be positives the 545 may have made it on the list.
