JVC LT-42DV1BJ review

 

JVC's LT-42DV1BJ is a super-slim full HD whopper with novel handclap technology

Decent colour palette ; Inventive features ; Gorgeous design

Poor black level response ; Wobbly motion handling

A curious mix of unusual features, bold styling and generally mediocre performance

JVC LT-42DV1 42in LCD TV

 

The slim, relatively 'green' JVC LT-42DV1 performs well and can even be switched on by clapping your hands!

The 42DV1 also improves considerably in design terms over the 42DS9. For while I was initially suckered in by the 42DS9's then-groundbreaking slimness, on reflection its finish felt a touch plasticky for comfort. The 42DV1's bodywork feels more robust,...

JVC LT-42DV1BJ review

 

This might be a bit of a looker and have an affordable price, but in reality there's little to get excited about here

Styling is decent ; price is competitive ; punchy whites and vibrant colours

Blacks appear grey, only Freeview, when others give you Freeview HD ; motion can be a problem

Despite the price and the looks, there’s very little for us to get excited about here

JVC LT-42DV1BJ review

 

Unique styling doesn't make up for the average picture quality, and the EPG isn't as user-friendly as other TVs.

JVC LT-37DV1BJ review

 

With its LT-37DV1BJ, JVC has produced a classy-looking LCD with an exhaustive spec, yet sadly it just doesn't shine

Classy two-tone design ; exhaustive spec ; a good overall picture

but not good enough to justify the extra outlay ; fiddly stand doesn’t inspire much confidence

There’s not much wrong with this TV, but not enough right to represent value in this class

JVC LT-47DV1BJ review

 

It might fail to excite us as much as some other premium sets, but the JVC LT-47DV1BJ is a sterling all-rounder

Premium build and smart, unique styling ; subtle, realistic colours ; excellent detail ; very clean standard-def pictures

Imperfect contrast regardless of setup ; could do with greater punch ; motion judder

JVC isn’t at the very top of the pile yet, but based on this evidence it’s definitely on the way up

JVC LT-42DV1 review

 

JVC's second-generation Super Slim LCD TV introduces a new contrast-boosting backlight, improved design, and, um, handclap control

The 42DV1 is a very likeable TV, but struggles to match the best for black level performance

JVC LT-47DV1BJ

 

This LCD television from JVC integrates modern styling with high performance functionality. It has a 47 inch screen which supports full HD 1080p resolution, so Blu-Ray and high definition channels look excellent. A freeview digital decoder is built in...

JVC LT-42DV1

 

Covering these in order, the 42DV1's slimness finds it less than 30mm deep for the majority of its rear end, giving it a really futuristic look from most angles - even though the screen's depth rises to a less jaw-dropping 69mm for a central section...

Plus points Great slender design, good pictures for the most part, powerful sound, plenty of features

Black levels decent rather than great, viewing angle limited, sound can distort
