Summary: I just bought one of these used. It is my first HDTV (not counting watching HD TV through my computer.) As these reviews are almost all from when the TV was new, I figured I would write a review from the current perspective. First, the downsides: It only handles 1080i, not 1080p.
Summary: I have one of these televisions and after two years a convergence thingie went out on it. Looked like you were seeing everything in double-vision. Luckily I had an extended warranty on it as it would have cost 600.00 to fix it. They had it about a week.
Summary: I've had this TV for more than 2 years and it still works as well as it did on Day One. I found a stand for it at Target so it sits about 18" off the ground now, and it is like being in a movie theater. I've been very pleased with this TV and would recommend it if it were still on the market.
Would give it ZERO stars if that were an option...

Summary: We purchased this television in April 03 and loved everything about it until a year and 3 months later. As we were watching t.v. one night, all of a sudden we heard a loud pop and the screen went blue. My husband got the manual out and tried to get it working but to no avail.
Summary: I wouldn't buy another JVC product if they were the only company on Earth. I purchased my TV in Nov of 2002. It had to have a part replaced in Feb 2003! Of course, it had to go in the shop for two weeks until the part they ordered was received.
Summary: I've recently purchased this rear projection television and I'm very impressed to say the least. I've owned a Samsung 40 rear projection prior to this, which was also a very good TV, but nothing compared to this JVC bad boy.
Summary: Just got it on Saturday July 13, 2002. The picture is amazing. The only downfall is, to have that amazing picture, you have to watch DVD's. I have BEV as a satellite supplier. Most of the channels are clear, except for some, it seems the picture is too big for the channel.
Summary: ...For me, this TV is everything I want and more. Great picture? Check. Spend a little time learning how to calibrate it or buy the excellent AVIA disc from Amazon. Great sound? Check. It would sound better connected to surround sound, but it does a pretty good job in my living room?
