waste of money, better off spending a little more for a better tv
17 September 2009
Summary: after two years the tv conked out, 2 days after my 2-year warranty expired. out of nowhere the tv didn't come on, with the remote or manually, the blue light which indicates whether the tv is on or off just flashes. edit: after emailing JVC my problem was solved with a simple solution, but my rating will remain the same.
Summary: The picture quality on this TV is amazing, but everything else about it pretty much stinks. It does what it was designed to do, but the design was BAD from the start. With the tuner: 1. No signal strength meter 2. Dolby digital via optical out stops working about every 20 minutes, and you have to change the channel back and forth to get it to work again. 3. Analog and digital channels are mixed together in numerical order.
Summary: I got my JVC LT32E479 LCD TV just before the holiday. I have two other LCD TVs which are were very easy to hook up to a receiver for theater sound because they have a switching "source" button on their remotes and the familiar "AV1" and "AV2" source inputs. The JVC has no switching source button on the remote and although there are LV1, LV2, LV3, LV4 and LV5 shown on the remote and on the diagram in the accompanying manual, getting this TV to recognize my DVD...
Summary: I got this TV as A gift for my self for Christmas. I must admit after viewing diffrent ones in the store this one beats them all. Great picture,sound, and easy controls. I would recommend this TV to anyone looking for A good HDTV.
Summary: I bought the the JVC 32" 720p LCD HDTV LT32E479 on sale for under $700. I liked it better than the Samsung or Toshiba which were highly rated. The picture is sharper and the contrast deeper than other 32" LCD TVs selling at a higher price. I have it connected to DirecTV HD. You couldn't ask for a better picture or better sound for that size TV.
