100Hz?! I couldn't see that in the online specs.

Poor contrast ratio is the only problem with this set

Because that one is only HD ready - 720 in other words. The one above is 1080P which is what it's all about now with LCD/Plasmas.

Don`t know what that guy is doing to the poor girl, but she seems to be enjoying it!! ;-)

This is my point about the contrast ratio from the review:

"The first of these, as we'd thought may be the case, is black level response. No amount of 100Hz magic can disguise the fact that during dark scenes you have to squint through a layer of grey mist at the action going on behind. Inevitably this also leaves dark scenes looking rather short of depth, and even produces the odd off-tune colour amidst the JVC's otherwise exemplary palette"

Great deal though if grey looking blacks don't bother you.

I wouldn't worry about the contrast ratio, the human eye can only detect a 750:1 contrast ratio so @ 1000:1 it's fine. High contrast ratio is a sales gimmick

Worked ok here. I've bought it. Selected collect at store (£629.99) then applied for 9 months interest free credit (£29 early settlement fee if paid within the 9 months). Called ED to ask when I would be able to collect. He said delivery only on finance but would deliver free when authorised by Barclays.
Looks a nice TV, can't see any minus points (except the blacks possibly).

Voted hot from me.
Thanks to OP. Heat and rep added.

Try caps for the EDSAVE. Just tried it with caps and it does work.

That may be but certain LCD panels handle blacks better than others, as the trusted review says it's a weak point of the panel, whether or not this is because of the contrast ratio who knows.

Still working for me.
Try calling ED sales on 0870 120 1122 maybe they can help?

Stop it! We're paying £630 for a 100hz, 1080p 42" LCD from a well known brand. Can you point me to a similar TV with 24p mode for a comparable price? If you can I'll cancel this and buy yours!
#25
No-one's saying this isn't good deal but it's worth pointing these things out, as stuff like black levels is important

That's clearly not true, because any set that's <1000:1 is instantly obvious for poor black level performance.

I agree if anyone hasn't seen a panel with poor contrast ratio they should check it out, it competely ruins movies with dark scenes (for me).

Unlike the JVC some LCD panels have "dynamic" backlights which automatically adjust when a dark scene is being shown to drastically improve the reproduction of blacks. Call it what you want but the JVC won't handle blacks aswell as other panels. It's still a great deal though, i've read posts on avforums from owners very happy with their purchase (they also probably paid more like 1K for the panel).

The Panel will blow you away it's just a shame it can't be like that 100% of the time.

Hi, Panasonic TH42PX80B has the 24p mode & isavailable for a similar price...not critcizing, just informing...
http://www.hotukdeals.com/search?action=search&keywords=th42px80B
VERY well regarded for it's excellent black levels too...
Like I said, just another option...(not even going near the 42" vs 1080p "discussion:oops: I have one, & it's...just...fantastic:thumbsup:)

Nice one OP though, does indeed look a nice set:)

Thanks but the Panasonic is plasma? The JVC is LCD.
#33
Yep, knew that Deek, was just pointing the way to another "24p" set. I personally prefer plasma for SD sources (we have a lcd & a plasma in the house) but each to their own.
#34
I think you should still be able to get free 5 year cover on this if you register online after buying (see URL)...

http://www.jvc.co.uk/ext_warranty.php

I phoned JVC up last week about a 32" model on the list and they said the offer was still on. However if this is make or break for you on whether to buy, you may wish to make your own enquiries to make sure.

As for the TV...not bad price although Panny's or Sony TV's are my particular preference.
#35
The Panny is also "only" 1080i, not 1080p. For 1080p you'd need to pay more and get the PZ model instead of the PX.

Having said that, I'd rather have the TH42PX80B, for my own needs and circumstances. For other folk I'm sure the JVC LCD TV is better.
#36
boycot jvc boycot jvc.......The JVC television factory in East Kilbride is to close in July with the loss of three hundred jobs. The Trade Union Unite says it is shocked and angered by a decision which will see the Japanese company transfer its production to Poland.
#37
Please note:-

[COLOR="Blue"]For the HDMIs can handle the 1080p format growing in importance with the arrival of HD discs. However, surprisingly this 1080p support only covers 50/60Hz, and doesn't extend to the ‘pure' 1080p/24fps format now being delivered directly from Blu-ray and HD DVD discs by one or two HD players.[/COLOR]

From Trusted reviews. 24fps is not handled by the HMDI inputs from a PS3 or alike. So in essence, this is good value, I don't dispute, but don't put it on par with any set that can handle 24fps that many purests desire. But you are talking at least £200-300 more, like the panny pz85 or sony w4000.

I'm waiting for a sony price drop, but I have to admit this got me VERY tempted. and good spot.
#38
Or the Panasonic set I indicated for the same money...24fps...

No telecine judder...just what you're after from your blue ray player or ps3:thumbsup:

It seems to have gone now.
