On The Bench

The Toshiba did very well on the bench, except for noise reduction and the component video testing at 1080i. Over component the levels seemed to rise and fall continuously when viewed on the scope, therefore those test results have been omitted as they are unreliable. Checking with my reference Oppo confirmed that the scope worked correctly, but the signal level from the Toshiba seemed odd. I didn’t notice anything when watching video over component, though the vast majority of my watching was done over HDMI and component was only used for viewing bench tests. The layer change was almost imperceptible on DVDs, though the loading time for the player overall was very slow.
