How the mighty have fallen. JVC used to be 1 step behind Sony & Panasonic.

Don't even know why they bother badging them as JVC in UK.

hi i bought the one which was in clearance last weekend and have to say the picture is brillant and is 1920x1280i picture quality i know it it cheap but i bought it as a temperory replacement just to do to after christmas.sound is a bit rubbish as it is low but picture is brillant so i connected a home cinema kit and that sorted the sound.

basically don't dis til you have tried and you might find yourself quite surprised.

Not everyone has the budget for a Sony or Samsung. If you have Tivo then you don't really need a smart TV. A lot of cheap smart TVs are slow and unresponsive, so rather the money goes just on the screen. This one happens to have a lovely picture quality.

I work in an electronics store and compare these JVCs to many other TVs. 100% the picture is very plain and more than likely the tv will be faulty very soon, as every JCV that I have sold has been returned (true story). Buyer beware... you get what you pay for.

Even my top of the range Panasonic had to be fixed for 2 issues within a month of buying it! I've lost coun of the number of Sony, Samsung and LG televisions which end up back in store for problems.

I agree which is why its annoying they appear to be limiting the HDMI ports. I just want a dumb screen with a good picture and lots of HDMI ports.

LG seems to be the most reliable from my experience. Samsung and Sony have the best picture, especially with this year's range. Though any decent brand with a 5 year warranty will do as well, if it is reliability you're after. Currys have some top TVs with it included, Richer Sounds have a 5 year guarantee on all their TVs also. John Lewis's 5 year guarantee is not worth the paper it's written, just Google it and you'll see. What Hifi have good reviews if you want to compare TVs.

But for under £230 and at least 40in, what do you recommend? Not everyone has the money for a Samsung tv of this spec. Obviously you can buy better for more, but it's at least £80 more and that could make alk the difference to a lot of people. Let's not forget why we're on this site in the first place

so had anyone bought this and what did they think? Does anyone suggest adding sound bar to it and if so which one that is reasonably priced? Thanks very much.

Yep, my colleague here bought one two weeks ago and he's happy as Larry. I popped round with a Lucasfilm DVD (Indiana Jones, though all the Star Wars ones have this) and used the THX calibration tool on it to adjust the image. I can honestly say that it looks great. As for the sound, you need to go out there and try some soundbars out, as they range so much on price and sound quality. I would personally recommend maybe a Sony or Samsung/LG one for around £100. Most I've heard sound very good in an average sized room. Or you could pick up an AV receiver for the real home cinema experience! I bought a Denon amp and Yamaha speakers for under £90 second hand - they sound amazing!
