Comprehensive review here: http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2006/07/15/JVC-HD-56ZR7J-56in-HD-ILA-TV/p1

Gets a good write-up anyway, although it's over 18 months old now, so that's probably why it's much cheaper.

I'd rather get a 50" plasma and save myself £250 than have a rear projection TV dominating half the room. Each to their own though.
#3
If its screen acreage you are after this is hot.
#4
These are beasts though. Saw my brother in laws 46 dlp the other day... did take up half the room. Like csiman said... id sooner have a thin 50" plasma and save the rest of the cash on a decent wall bracket to hang it.

This telly is excellent for huge rooms, community halls or clubs.

I completely agree. It does make me laugh when the comments around size of a modern DLP are brought up - they're hardly big! My Sagem 50" sits on a cabinet which houses all my AV equipment (prob 30cm deep), it doesn't overhand, just sits perfectly and works really well for my lounge.

I think those with fear of size haven't seen a modern DLP / rear projector - they're a million miles away from the old style rear projectors with quite shallow depth. For the price and picture quality, my Sagem is second to none.

Voted Hot.
#10
Exactly, if you've room for a 56" screen then the extra few centimetres is hardly gonna be a deal breaker!
#11
not avilable to residents of n.ireland! drat and double drat ,would of voted hot otherwise
#12
Dont forget you get a poor viewing angle with rear projection TV's and aslo you need a dimly lit room to see the picture. Next time you are in the shops just notice how theses TV's are always cleverly placed into the darkest recesses of the electrical store....
#13
plasma, 10cm deep
my 50" dlp 36cm deep.

yeah, you can keep your extra £250 mate.

this is hot.

i love it when people by flat panels and then put them in the corner of room :?

dont confuse old rear projection with the new DLP technology. the viewing angle is fine. the only time you ever notice mine going a bit dark is when i am looking down on the screen.
#15
I find you get a very similar, high quality picture quality from 45 degrees either side of viewing straight on to the TV. That's not to say that you can't view it from a greater angle, but 45 degrees is ample - I really wouldn't want to be watching TV from anything wider than that.
#16
yeah, DLPs are not that great.

The fact that the only people to talk positively about them are existing owners (justifying their purchase?) speaks volumes to me.
#17
So much nonsense is spoken about DLPs by people who have never actually owned or seen the NEW type.

I have a Samsung 50 inch. I also own 3 Plasmas/LCDs and the DLP is better than them.

As for the space. The new type are very slim and unless you are mounting your Plasma/ LCD on a wall then it has to sit on a table. So its not the depth of the TV that matters but the depth of the table it sits on.

RONNIE your talking nonsense m8. As I have said I own all 3 types and my DLP is the best of them all.
#18

And the fact that you don't own one and yet are able to comment that it's not that great speaks how much to the rest of us?

LCD, plasma and RPTV (DLP, LCD or otherwise) all have their own selling points. For size and ultimate lifespan an RPTV is a good bet. LCDs are "****" when it somes to motion (though newer ones are better). Plasma is "****" when it comes to level of detail (though newer ones are better). RPTVs are "****" when it comes to the depth of the unit? Newer ones are better.

Personally, if I needed to buy a new TV I'd replace my LCD with an HD RPTV no question. I like the fact that I can spend ~£60 on a new bulb that fixes the image compared to having to buy a whole new unit when the backlight breaks or a gas cell fails or...
#19
of course only the people that talk positively about them are the owners.

they are not flat panels, the current buzz word in tvs.

they dont have screen burn or dead pixels either :whistling:

not that i mind flat panels, either plasma or lcd, but to say that this technology is no good is so wrong :x

what a monkey you are, next time you chip in with advice at least learn something about the subject.

modern DLP projection tvs do not have to be viewed in the dark, you are thinking of a a front projection system. also the quality of pictures on a good dlp projection tv will put the majority of comparable lcd or plasma tvs to shame

I was waiting for the smart ass comment...:whistling: For info, I own a 32" LCD, and a 42" Panasonic PX70 plasma, so I'd say I'm more than qualified to give a rational and fair justification against all of the technologies. My Panny is great, the DLP is equally as good, and the LCD is just poor in comparison to them both.

In terms of justifying my purchase...I really don't need to justify anything to a bunch of strangers...every time I put the TV on and enjoy the fantastic PQ is justification enough for me :thumbsup:

Having a DLP myself for the last couple of years i can say that i am more than happy with my purchase (if anything came close to the picture that i have i would have gotten rid of it by now) but

This is a great Telly, go and see one for yourself. Great technology at a great price. HD picture is superb :thumbsup:. Good job I haven't got the money as I would of bought one. As for arguing about size, How many people put their 40"+ LCD or Plasma on the wall, Thats right we use a stand that is probably bigger than this tele.
:p
#24
I worked for Currys / Dixons for 6 years and have sold lots of TVs.

DLPs are great for people who want big screens. The people on here that are talking about taking up half the room and that the viewing angles are bad are talking out of their a**e!
#25
I just gave away Sony rear-projection set.

I would never buy one again.

The projector bounces light off a mirror - in what is essentially a big air-filled box.
After a year or so, dust builds up inside the box especially on the mirror.
This causes coloured blobs to appear on the picture.
The dust bunnies inside causes shadows which block either red or green or blue. So you tend to see dark magenta, yellow or cyan patches floating over the picture.

Plasma or LCD screens have their own problems, but the rear projector (which cost £1600) was the worst purchase I ever made.
#26
my sony 50" rear projection TV is amazing - its not in a dark room (its very bright the room is), you can watch from any angle and its super slim. and in HD...LOVELY!
The new tech of rear projection is totally amazing stuff - the cinema in your front room! I didnt get this from my brothers plasma TV.

Failing that a front door and a friend capable of sharing the herculean majesty of 42 kg (10kg heavier than a 47" LCD) should do the trick.

Different technology mate, this is DLP your Sony will have been 3LCD rear projection.

But I had a Sony for almost a year and it was great.

Also on DLP's you do not get any dust build up because the fan does not allow for any dust build up.

Get your facts right and learn the difference before trying to persuade people not to purchase this fantastic tv. If anyone wants a large tv for their room and it is going to be sitting on a table then for 720p you will not get a better TV for less than a grand in this size ratio.
banned#31
The fact that owners come on here and their initial post is to defend their poor buying decision speaks volumes. Enough said :)

IMHO - order of quality LCD-DLP-Plasma-CRT (SD quality)
order of quality CRT-LCD-DLP-Plasma (HD quality)

All the mags say this too ;)

At the end of the day, this is a good TV at a great price but 1 HDMI these days is carp.
#32
christ some people obviously can't handle the truth.

may be I should say:

DLPs are great – apart from a small minority of buyers, everyone else has them wrong. The manufacturers should be making more of these to sell to all the misinformed people buying other technologies. All those of us who have gone thorough the process of evaluating the various TV technologies and decided against DLP are wrong.

But I won't. DLPs are not that good – the sales numbers don't lie.

You owners can justify your purchases all you like.

COLD.

Big LOL! Methinks you have a very valid point. If they were that good, then why is no-one buying them and they are getting reduced by 62% :thumbsup:
#34
Just wanted to add my opinion (since everyone else seems to be). There is no issue with brightness or viewing angle as some people are stating. They are not very thick either, far slimmer than any crt most ppl are replacing.
If you are not prone to the rainbow effect (when you see rainbows if you scan the screen quickly) then DLP is easily the best technology so far. Picture quality is amazing, with no ghosting or screen burn risk.
As with most things; its probably best to get a demo before you buy.

C'mon guys - half the room? this is only 44cm deep. What size are your living rooms!!

Hot Hot Hot .


For 56" TV recommended viewing distance is about 2.5 to 4 metres. If you have a small room this is going to be a strain visually. So if the depth of TV is about 0.5 (allow a bit of a gap in the back), the occupany is going to be less than 20% depth wise (0.5 m as a % of 2.5m). So area wise in a room it is going to be 5%-10%. So not too big footprint.

OK there are some constraints with the box, size , weight, bulb.. but the reduced price is intended to offset these constraints to make it a hot deal for some.

This tv doesnt have the rainbow effect as it doesnt use DLP it uses ILA

Had a lot of large tvs of all types in the past, had a cool grundig rptv that sat in a wood cabinet with a motorised screen that rose out of the cabinet on remote
Any way need less to say i have owned all the diff types of projection, lcd and finally a 50" unbranded plasma
At £830 probably the cheapest large tv i have ever bought but by god i'd take ur arm off for suggesting i swap it for anything else
ps projection telly used to blow lamps if sat on still images for too long ie games or text pages, is this still the case?
#38
44cm depth?, this things takes up more room than my old widescreen crt, infact its bigger than my custom made TV Unit. Ok its 56", but I'd want 1080p (at least! :thinking: ) at that size.....

If you are going to go projection you may as well go front projection. Thats what I have in my games room and get a 9ft wide screen and the quality is really very good (even projected onto a wall) particualrly fed a hd source. Of course its nothing like the quality of a good plasma or even lcd screen but then again it is 9ft wide !.

You can get a very good Panasonic hd front projector for the type of money being discussed here.......

The people commenting on quality are absolutely right though. I have lcd, Plasma and a projector and I can tell you quality wise Plasma is the way to go...

A 50" wall mountable panny plasma @ sub £900 is a much better option than this....50" really is very big more than big enough for most uk houses / flats. Too big for most in fact when you take into account correct viewing distances..........
