I was pleased with the ease of setup.

Anyway, I recently purchased an HDTV, and I had been using my older DVD player by connecting it through the S-VIDEO, and it looked very bad on the HDTV.

We took it into a service center and were informed that the player can't be replaced, it has to be fixed.

I was pleased with the ease of setup. It interfaced well with my 42 inch Panasonic Plasma TV as there was no issues. The room where I use the surround system is relatively small hence I had no issue with the 40 watt system. I do agree that the speaker wires to the front speakers are too short considering the woofer is off to the side. The selection for surround sound options works well for me as does the adjustment of levels. I think the 40 watt system is good value.

Had a limited budget. Rolling Stone magazine, gave this home theatre in a box; a solid review. A low cost system with HDMI. 1000 watts, 5 disc cd/dvd player and SMALL. Sounds great and I've ran it HARD. MOVIES, SPORTS and MUSIC. CLEAR cranked all the way up, and its LOUD.

Could use some more input channels, but there are ways around that and it wasnt hard. Highly recommend! I scored it for 250 DELIVERED!!!

I don't have a lot of experience with these so I did alot of research to find that this system had a lot of the features I wanted for a good price. After purchasing and installing, I've got no major beefs with the product. The sound is good, but the video "up-conversion" performed by the dvd player isn't impressive on my Hdtv. I haven't used a burned dvd w/ adhesive label so I can't comment regarding that bug, yet. I'll report back if anything goes awry.

We have 5 DVD players in my home, one of them is similar to this one (came with the speakers), whereas the others were just a DVD player. The DVD player I had that already came with the speakers was a few years older, but it was a Sony, and the sound was incredible.

Anyway, I recently purchased an HDTV, and I had been using my older DVD player by connecting it through the S-VIDEO, and it looked very bad on the HDTV. TOTALLY crappy, in fact. Then I got this JVC TH-C40 player and I immediately noticed that it handled the DVD's much better on an HDTV. Then, I decided to use the HDMI port, and WOW what a difference. The movies look crystal clear, and they look better than when you watch them on HD movie channels. The sound is great, and it has DTS which is a must for sound lovers (most good movies come with DTS sound), and it has settings that none of my other DVD players have, such as the DVD player being set to 720p Progressive (which is what I have, so it makes the movies look better), or interlaced (if you had a standard TV and not an HDTV). But the main reason I am writing this review is because of how great the movies LOOKED due to the DVD player's wonderful upscaling ability. Movies look MUCH better through my DVD upscaling than they do on an HD movie channel.

Maybe I get impressed with things easily, sue me. I'm just very happy with this product, and it has made my movie-viewing experience much better. Now when friends come over and watch a DVD on my HDTV, they are actually IMPRESSED with the picture quality.
