Excerpt: There is nothing too fancy or special about this tv, however, for a family on a budget it does the job! The price is affordable enough to be able to enjoy watching tv and movies without breaking the bank. The small screen does not do blu-ray dvds any justice...the picture quality is just so-so (but as I said - it's still a working tv so no complaints here!
Summary: We needed a new TV set for the kitchen, and a 19" one was the right size. I looked at a number of 19"-class sets at local big box stores. All of them underwhelmed me. None seemed to have the picture quality I would have expected, even at lesser prices than this JVC HDTV set. I've worked professionally in the video business for a number of years, and understood through experience that many JVC video products (especially monitors) represented solid value for money.
