First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

- — 16 March, 2009 15:35
The Toshiba XV560A series is at the top of the Toshiba model hierarchy, packing in Power Meta Brain and all the best of Toshiba's television technology.
Toshiba has announced three new Full HD LCD television ranges. The TVs range in size from 42in to 52in, with prices ranging from $2199 to $4299.
The XV560A range covers Toshiba’s premium LCD televisions, with Full HD 1080p resolution, 100Hz motion smoothing technology and integrated high-definition digital television tuners. The 52in Toshiba 52XV560A is the largest of the new models and retails for $4599. Toshiba’s XV550A range has identical specifications but uses a different housing with a silver-lined bezel.
The cheaper RV550A range misses out on the 100Hz motion smoothing but still has a 1080p native resolution and an integrated high-definition digital television tuner. The RV550A range includes 46in and 42in models, priced at $2749 and $2199, respectively.
All the new televisions have Toshiba’s Gaming Mode to optimise display response times, as well as Toshiba’s range of Power Meta Brain image processing features. Each TV has four HDMI ports to allow a wide range of devices to be attached simultaneously. All the models are available now.
