  • Summary: The size, resolution and price(at the time I bought it, ~$1,000) make it attractive. The negatives make it useless if you like Blu Ray. It does not accept 1080p/24 sources and dsiplays them as such. No extended color gamuts. No 120hz, although I will admit that it does fine without it. The blacks look purplish or burgundy - which annoyed the hell out of me. I could not watch Star Wars or 2001 a Space Oddessy because space looked burgundy and not black!

So far so good

  • Summary: i did a thorogh research before landed on this one. i do like the 120Hz Sony better, but i decided not to pay $2500 for a 40" and for my first HDTV set. JVC has not disappointed me. i am a fan of JVC, my last tube set lasted 13 years. the picture quality is superb for this new set, color is vivid, natural and smooth. i am surprised to find the price has actually gone up!! i paid $1,100 and now is $1444? wow! the sound quality is really good as well.

  • Summary: We just love this TV it went through 2 trucking companies to get here from tiger direct but was worth it. It has one bad pixel but we haven't contacted JVC about this yet but still very easy to set up great picture and great price! After reading many reviews on amazon this TV was the best for the brand we love.

  • Summary: My husband and I purchased this same TV from RC Willey and got it alot cheaper then Amazon.. (The wall mount if 1/2 price from Amazon though) The picture quality is so amazing that you really have to see it.. We do have a problem with a few of the channels not having any sound. We are trying to make contact with JVC for this issue.. We purchased a playstation 3 to use as a blue ray disk player since it was more economical for us.

Great TV!

  • Summary: This TV is amazing! The first one I got had some issues with fine detail (particularly with single-pixel-wide sharp contrast). After some investigating I determined the set was messed up and I exchanged for a new one. The problem is gone... It looks great! I am particularly impressed with the power consumption and energy saving features that come with this TV. Make sure to adjust the "energy saving mode," if you are an energy-miser like myself.
