Universally Compatible, Unlike Some other Brands.


Some other brands of DVD players will give you problems when highly copyrighted or highly detailed DVDs come out, this fortunately isn't one of them. My father has had this player for 2 years and it has stood the test of time in terms of features and...

Strobe feature, layout of remote control

XV-511BK, A "Sound" Purchase


It seemed I was in the dark ages when all of my friends and family were bragging about their dvd players and I still had not even priced any. Although there are certain brands of electronic equipment that I have had problems with I decided to start...

No "Time-remaining" feature and small delicate remote.

Great for the Money.


This DVD player has a Zoom Feature. ZOOM. Go out a buy a $900 Sony dvd player, see if you get a zoom. Not likely. This is one of the only dvd players I have ever come across with a zoom feature. What good is being able to zoom in on the picture you...

Great Features, good price, good performance

Bulky package, slow controls

Loaded with features for great price!


If your like me, you want a DVD player that has lots of features. One that looks cool and is easy to use. That pretty much describes the XV-501-bk from JVC. Dont think that the 511bk is better. It is not. the 501 has actually more features, but...

Tons of features, cool looking, great sound and picture quality.

Doesn't come with optical output cable.
