Expert review by : Will Greenwald (



JVC's Emerald series of HDTVs with Roku deliver decent performance and connected features at a reasonable price.

Inexpensive. Includes Roku Streaming Stick. Solid contrast and warm picture.

Roku Streaming Stick leaves only two HDMI ports free for other devices. Uneven color accuracy. Shadow details can look occasionally washed out.

Power and Conclusion Under normal viewing conditions, the EM55FTR consumes 100 watts. The screen doesn't have any notable power saving features. It falls squarely in the middle of the road for power use, comparable to the Vizio E550i-B2's 103 watts....

The EM55FTR ain't your father's JVC HDTV. For one thing, JVC TVs are no longer manufactured by JVC, which licensed the brand to Taiwanese TV manufacturer AmTRAN and its U.S. subsidiary, AmTRAN Video Corporation, based in Irvine, California. Don't...

If you've ever uttered the words "I just want a good-performing TV without having to pay for all the bells and whistles that I don't care about," then the new JVC EM55FTR is right up your alley. No, it's not a perfect TV, but it's really quite good for...

The new licensees of the JVC brand (AmTran, Taiwan) have produced a compelling price sensitive model in the Emerald series LED TVs. This aggressively priced TV features some nice basics that will appeal to those needing a budget priced TV.

While this is not a high end TV, it does contain two 15W speakers that produce decent if not a bit hollowed out sound. The slightly deeper cabinet of course provides a bit more room for these inbuilt speakers

Issues right out of the box.


You get what you pay for. During the set-up, it did a channel scan, which took a good 10-15 minutes to complete. After it was finished, the whole scanning screen remained lightly burned into the screen. Hard to judge the picture, since it's obscured...

Something told me not to buy this TV. It looked fine but after I plugged it in the screen had a vertical 6in "green" line in the center of the screen!! Also, more than 1/4 of the screen was "blacked out" and it wouldn't scan for channels. Of course it...

TV is junk out of the box.


I knew beforehand that buying a refurbished TV was a risk, however I never expected it to have a problem the first time I turned it on. The screen is blurry, the menu bar got burned into the screen during set-up, there are two horizontal lines going...
