5 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: Shipping was very fast. Got it 3 days before estimated date. Picture is very crisp and clear. Over the air HD channels look terrific. I bought this because of the fast response time. XBOX 360 looks so good. The TV looks really nice.

Cons: Remote is big and ugly. Attracts a lot of dust for some reason.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very good reception. I have standard cable and I am able to get many more stations with this tv. I can get all local channels in HD, Digital and standard format. Quick and easy setup.

Cons: The remote control works fine but looks cheap
Newegg AIT delivery could have better informed me on the actual delivery date. AIT delivered the tv 4 days earlier than their web site stated the delivery date. I was glad for this but unprepared.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, missing key functionality

Pros: Clear picture, 1080p, nice size for price. Remote can easily control common amps. QAM tuner picks up a lot of extra channels from my standard cable, and if the data's there, it labels them automatically.

Cons: HDMI audio from either port will not play through optical out. Does seem to attract dust (what shiny black thing doesn't?). Another HDMI or a DVI port would be nice, but only if you're using it on a computer. Auto tuner settings picked up a lot of "blank channels".

Other Thoughts: It took me a bit to figure out why my PS3 wasn't going through my sound system speakers ... well, according to the manual, "You cannot output sound from your Optical Output connection if the audio source is from your HDMI device." Luckily I've discovered that my amp/receiver has two optical inputs, as well as a coaxial input that will do 5.1 (so I can run audio that way from the PS3 and the soon to be installed digital cable, and maybe even the TV itself if I find a reason). However, I'm severely disappointed in this factoid - it shouldn't be hard for the HDMI audio to be converted and routed through the optical ...

Complaints about the remote aren't 100% valid in my opinion; while it is very big, the only issue with the layout I had is that a couple of buttons were reversed (it just felt like "back" (which is on the right side) and "menu" (on the left) should be reversed. And I guess the "sub channel" selector is farther away from the number pad than it should be.

5 out of 5 eggsBest 42" for the money

Pros: Excellent Picture quality and vivid color. I have owned this TV for 4 months and have always had a fantastic picture. One HDMI input is connected to a 1080P up-scaling DVD which produces really great movies to watch and the other HDMI input is connected to an ATI3870 video card in my PC which is absolutely unbelievable game play at 1080P.
The cable connects directly into the RCA jack straight from the wall. The built in QAM tuner allows me to watch all the unscrambled stations including the High Def ones without using a cable box. They look extremely good.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsLove My TV

Pros: I did not purchase from New Egg, but I have not had any issues like the person above me. It is a great price and a very sleek looking finish. Great picture and no red skin or purple hair.

Cons: Only two HDMI ports, no VGA or DVI, ugly remote with odd layout.

Other Thoughts: I have had this TV for 4 months now with no problems yet, I have my PS3 and U-Verse digital cable hooked up HDMI and it has a great picture. I would definitely recommend this television, it is the right price and has a nice picture.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Bad....

Pros: Size, price, style, features. JVC brand 'used' to be my #1.

Cons: TV has a red or purple push(as they say) in the blacks. On black hair, it looks purplish instead of just black. White skin looks red - not the natural kind, an clearly defective type. There is also some blotches on the screen. You REALLY see it in night scences. It is on the left and reight sides of the screens. I think it is the LCD screen used in the set. The picture also has a habit of changing tones. If you watch, a light of kind of dark scene will change shades right before your eyes! All of this added up to "I can't take it anymore!"

Other Thoughts: I guess when I bought this I saw the low price and wondered why this was lower priced than it's lower model? Now I know. However, JVC and I have come to an end. I was a STRONG promoter of JVC and I even got many people turned onto JVC as that TV to buy. After this AND their "if you can't buy it, buy it some places else" customer service - I will buy from another brand! No more co-signs from me! Toshiba (2008 models) here I come!
