Introduction

I hadn't made the switch to 1080p in my theater just yet; so, when Audioholics offered me the opportunity to review a 1080p 46" LCD display from Mitsubishi I all but offered to go pick it up myself. Fortunately they assured me they could ship it, so then I just had to wait. I'm not going to lie - when the package arrived I dropped everything and got it set up immediately. Upon opening the box, I found a very sleek looking display before I ever even hit the power. While I had this television in my system during this review, the display's clear vivid picture drew many comments from me - and anybody else in the room - including my dog (but more on that later). Its lack of ability to produce blacker than black caused it to lose detail in dark scenes; however, the picture in mid to bright scenes was incredibly sharp and really popped off the screen.
