When it comes to appearance, you can either go with a distinctive frame (such as Samsung's recent 'Touch of Color' sets) or one that attempts to slim down to the point of invisibility. The LT-46148 goes with the latter route, and is all the better for it; there's a mere 3/4-inch at the top and down the sides, while the bottom bulges to 3-inches thanks to the speakers. Anybody expecting similarly waif-like depth will be surprised, though: at just under 5-inches (excluding the base) the LT-46148 is far from being the thinnest HDTV. Plastics are gloss-black and seem high quality, with no noticeable flex or creak when rotating the Mitsubishi on its swivel stand. You can twist the set a full sixty degrees (30 off center in each direction).
