I purchased this set at Costco a couple of months ago, after reading numerous reviews of every popular 47" set. I almost purchased the competing Vizio instead, but read that they are manufactured by the same company anyway. The JVC was a little less expensive. I believe I paid about $500 for it.

At first I was disappointed by the image, which seemed over-saturated, almost like a 'posterized' filter in Photoshop. Turning the Color intensity down didn't do the trick. I was about to take it back to Costco when I discovered a web page that had the settings for best picture on it. Someone had done a professional calibration analysis and posted the settings. Thanks to some generous soul, I dialed them in, using the various menus on screen, and voila! The image went from a circus look to having fantastic skin tones, and tremendous realism. I hooked up the sound to my stereo system and amazing Mirage M-1 speakers, and wow. It sounds great and looks amazing. I don't remember the site url with the settings, but you can find it by Googling.

I haven't used my video projector system since I got the JVC. Poor thing. Abandoned. The clarity of the JVC trumps the size (9 feet wide) of the projection setup (Sanyo Z2 projector), at least for a while. Half the time, at least, I'm watching Netflix and YouTube streaming over my iPad, plugged into the JVC set with a composite video in, and it still looks fantastic. Hardly HD, but still a great image, and the iPad makes an excellent hand-held controlller. Since the JVC is not a 'smart' TV, you have to use something with it that has smarts.

I'm a stickler for accurate aspect ratio, and can't stand going into a restaurant where they have a wide screen displaying 4:3 material in 16:9 with people's heads stretched horizontally.

Sorry Amazon but I bought mine at Costco for $499+tax. I was a little skeptical initially because I could find few reviews on the Internet when I found this model at Costco. Even CNET didn't review this product. Don't know why, but boy am I pleased to take a chance to buy this TV!

I believe many of you are concerned about two things: (1) This TV's refresh rate is only 60Hz; and (2) This is an LCD TV, not either plasma or LED-lit. I can tell you with confidence that these things mean really nothing to your eyes! JVC's BlackCrystal technology is awesome. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, the factory default should be changed for better picture. Once it's done, you will be surprised how beautiful it looks! Watching Blu-ray movies is a jaw-dropping experience.

HDTVs are no longer money cows for manufacturers, and JVC had to cease their domestic productions in Japan and Asia several years back. Too bad for them as well as for us consumers as their technologies are still topnotch even in today's standard, and they shouldn't go to the landfill for many decades to come! This is especially true for someone like myself who don't care about 3D just yet. Viewing angle is also great. I have no problem watching the screen from various angles. My JLC47BC3002 sits in my bright living room with roof windows and I can enjoy watching TV day and night with no problem.

Two things that could've been better: (1) When the TV is turned on, a huge "JVC" logo appears as if it is a PC not a TV. A little annoying and this behavior seems unchangeable. (2) The TV comes with only two HDMI jacks. Right now, this is not an issue to me as I only connect a FiOS DVR, a Panasonic Blu-Ray player, and a PC (I use the SVGA port for PC).

The plan was to buy a Samsung but Black Friday I saw the JVC for $399 so I took a punt. The color is vibrant, fairly accurate and did not need adjustment although I immediately turned off both types of noise reduction as they reduce picture quality. Contrast is much better than our 8 year old Hitachi RPHDTV; text is clear and easy to read and we noticed details in Rango that we missed the first time. Game mode on my Onkyo receiver did however produce intense motion blur on Xbox 360 games but turning it off fixed the problem and I noticed no video lag whatsoever. I have always been very sensitive to 60hz refresh rates on CRTs but I have no issue with 60hz on an LCD, I know there are people who worry about it as I did. There is some delay when changing channels, about 2.5 seconds which might bother me more if I was a channel surfer but 99% of my viewing is off the DVR. The JVC has HDMI v. 1.3 and supposedly supports CEC but my Onkyo is a v. 1.4 and CEC will not work. Not the latest and greatest television but I didn't need all the bells and whistles (internet, apps, 3D) and for what I paid it is a fantastic bargain.

Subtracted one star for the channel change delay although it doesn't bother me much, it will bother some people.

UPDATE: I tried the calibration settings from televisioninfo.com and they do look better on broadcast channels but look terrible on cable channels like Discovery, Food, etc. Overall the settings desaturate and yellow the image, whites come out almost sepia toned. I saved the settings under custom and will do a little tweaking to make it less yellow. CEC, the ability for one HDMI component to control another, does work somewhat. The TV remote will power down the Onkyo receiver but that is of minimal value.
