Picture clarity is amazing, now just need more HD channels
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Purchased this TV over the internet through Amazon.com. Got it for a great price with no tax and no shipping. Ordered on a Friday night and was delivered to my house by the following Tuesday. The picture is gorgeous, especially when watching sports. Now if only Time Warner would offer more HD channels.
Excerpt: this tv is a great buy the sound system is amazing! This tv was an amazing buy. It has a great picture and I just love this new hd thing. I am happy with the size of it, it is just big enough. The remote makes it easy access to your dvd player or other hook ups. I think this was my smartest buy for this price range.
Excerpt: I have the 62 inch JVC rear projection tv. At first it was wonderful, LOVEIT! Then :( the color started to turn green takes for ever to warm up. YES I have changed the bulb a few times, This television is 2 years old and the picture began to detiriorate in less than 6 months. Nice set but not worth the $$$$$ for its quality, go with a glass flat screen.
Excerpt: I loved when I brought this home! It's not very heavy and easy to haul around if you need too. The picture is amazing on it. You can literally see everything and up close. There is no grainy or blurry vision to it and the colors are wonderful on it. The sound comes out very clearly. I love flat screen as it isn't as bulky as the ones with the backs. It's thin enough to either hang on the wall or sit on a tv stand perfectly.
Excerpt: When we first moved to our new home we had a space for the TV above the fireplace but the only TV we had was a HUGE Tube TV that weighed a TON and took up tons of space and when they tried to put it up on the shelf it was scratching the heck out of things so I insisted we get a new lighter easier to use TV. So we found this on a great deal at our local furniture mart. Setting it up was a piece of cake, putting it on the shelf was a piece of cake. We love it.
Excerpt: The 42" is just a perfect size for anybody in my opinion. It's the perfect size for most all rooms. To be honest its almost too big for my bedroom but we make it work (not complaining). The picture quality is unbelievable and astonoshing! The first time I watched a bluray movie on it i could not believe my eyes. I watched the book of Eli and It looked like Denzel was standing 15 feet in front of me.
Excerpt: About 4 months ago I bought a JVC 42" flat screen Television. The TV picture quality and sound is great! I watch a lot of football on this Television. There is also an ipod holder on the front of the television. This holder/player is very handy and again the sound quality is great. The television set is light weight, I was able to carry it to the car and in my house by myself and with no problem.
Excerpt: I was a bit hesitant to buy this tv at first due to my lack of knowledge of the JVC brand, but I must say I am glad I bought it! This flat screen is great! The colors are beautiful and it has a wonderful sound quality which is quite impressive. I am so happy I bought this product. I also have to compliment its durability and it is easy to program. The installation is also very simple. I highly recommend this product and would be more than happy to buy another!
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!
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.
