JVC LT-42DV1 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

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

 

JVC's LT-42DV1BJ has a refreshingly idiosyncratic design that looks like it was lifted from the set of a 70's sci-fi movie. The rear and sides of the case are finished in an off-white matt plastic, while the bezel has a leather-effect black plastic...

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

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

Expert review by:

JVC LT-47DV1BJ

 

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

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

Expert review by:

JVC LT-37DV1BJ

 

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

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

JVC LT-42DV1BJ

 

Despite the price and the looks, there's very little for us 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

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
