Toshiba SV670 Series of LED-Based HDTVs

Toshiba’s first LED-based LCDs have arrived.
Toshiba is demoing its new SV670 Series, highlighting the black-level improvements of the LED design in a head-to-head comparison with its own traditional CCFL LCD, from last year's line.
The SV670 TVs use a full-array LED backlight design, with local-dimming technology that allows for outstanding contrast and deep blacks. These models also use Toshiba’s ClearScan 240 technology, which combines a 120Hz refresh rate with a scanning backlight to produce a 240Hz effect. Resolution+ technology is also on board to improve detail with lower-resolution sources like SDTV and DVD.
On the audio side, these are the first TVs to feature Dolby Volume to help level out volume discrepancies between sources.
The SV670 Series, which includes 46- and 55-inch models, has an attractive design that combines the Infinity Flush Front anti-reflective panel with its subtle Deep Lagoon color shading and invisible speakers.
The SV670 Series is available now.
