LCD TV Set Fall Preview

Nice Colors

Colors were fairly faithful overall. The ViewSonic N2750W did better, in fact, than the Toshiba 27WL56P - above all for lightest-colored parts of the image.

Few colors were truly perfect before calibration, but 90% of the shades were up to standard.

The black level is too high and the Toshiba 27WL56P still has the edge for contrast. However, you can boost the level of the backlighting strongly on this set, which is practical when you want to watch TV during the day, especially if your set is in a less-than-optimum location (near a window, for example).

Spatial Uniformity

Judging by the results of our most recent tests, the current crop of 27" panels seem to be very uniform. This one was no exception. All values were within a narrow 15% of the total range.

Our measurements show a left/right asymmetry, but it remained fairly imperceptible in the actual images displayed.
