Great value for fine quality viewing DVDs

 

As a DVD player, the JVC XV-S502 works just fine and has all the features and quality you would expect. The remote control, however, is less intuitive and more complex than we would like.

A fine DVD player with lots of features. Good value.

Ultra-slow JPEG image formation. Remote complex, unfriendly. Annoying JVC-logo when CDs played through TV.

Great Progressive DVD Player

 

I have this unit hooked up via component video to a Toshiba TV, and the image quality is fantastic. This unit has very good scaling when bringing a movie from anamorphic wide screen down to letterbox display - shimmers and moire are virtually absent....

Plays DVD, VCD, SVCD, MP3, JPEG Disk. Optional Progressive output.

The "looks" of the unit are underwhelming, and the menu system could use some work.

Consumer review by:

High end picture quality - entry-level price

 

Let's face it, these days the difference between high end and low end electronics increasingly comes down to features, not picture or sound quality. A good example of this trend is the JVC S502SL DVD player. While it lacks the features and sturdy...

Very good picture quality ; Progressive scan capability ; user configurable video adjustment

Locks up occaisionally on multi-layered disks and some mp3s ; slow to load jpegs ; mediocre remote

I FINALLY got rid of my Samsung for this!

 

Perhaps you remember me as having all sorts of issues with my Samsung DVD-709 player. Well, recently I replaced it with this JVC model. I originally bought one without the box and it ended up pixelizing any movie I played so I returned it to get one in...

All the features I wanted at a great price!

None yet as I can see

Consumer review by:

Neat dvd player with potential

 

I have done some researching on a dvd player that I can be happy with, can do a lot of functions and be upgradable to a component t.v. and the JVC XV-S502SL is the one. For starters the slim design makes it possible for you to place the player...

Versatile dvd player. slim design.

None

Consumer review by:

Plays every type of SVCD

 

This unit is great.

Plays VCD, S-VCD, DVD, CD, MP3

the CD tray feels little flimsy and cheap.

Consumer review by:

great video player

 

The real strength for this player is the quality of video it gives, whether in progressive scan or not. In progressive scan, if the famous chroma bug is there, it is not all that apparent. I have also yet to have any technical problems with the player,...

plays CD, CDRW, MP3 CD'sis a progressive scan player

Does not play DVD audio, SACD, HDCD.Poor audio decoders

Consumer review by:

What a great DVD Player

 

I did quite a lot of research on DVDs, looked at the Sonys, the Toshibas, and a few of the high end ones.

Very versatile, almost every format, slim, amazing picture, feature packed

Randomness of MP3s and jpeg playback

Consumer review by:

JVC XV-S502 DVD Player

 

Price, picture and sound quality, features, compatibility (SVCD, XVCD, MP3...), connectivity

Looks cheap, poor MP3 interface, no MP3 program or random play, no MP3 fast scan

Consumer review by:

NICE DVD PLAYER.

 

I JUST PURCHASED A BIG SCREEN TV AND WANTED TO GET A PROGRESSIVE SCAN DVD PLAYER TO USE THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE BIG SCREEN. SINCE I PURCHASED A JVC TV I FIGURED THAT I WOULD LOOK INTO A JVC DVD PLAYER. THIS DVD PLAYER WAS MODERATELY PRICED COMPARED...

STYLISH, PROGRESSIVE SCAN, LARGE RANGE ZOOM FUNCTION, MULTIPLE MEDIA PLAYBACK.

3D PHONIC SOUND HONESTLY I CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE.
