  • Great value for fine quality viewing DVDs

    May 20, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: A fine DVD player with lots of features. Good value.
    Cons: Ultra-slow JPEG image formation. Remote complex, unfriendly. Annoying JVC-logo when CDs played through TV.

    Summary: As a DVD player, the JVC XV-S502 works just fine and has all the features and quality you would expect. The remote control, however, is less intuitive and more complex than we would like. The reason we chose the JVC XV-S502 (over competing ... read more

  • Great Progressive DVD Player

    Jan 28, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Plays DVD, VCD, SVCD, MP3, JPEG Disk. Optional Progressive output.
    Cons: The "looks" of the unit are underwhelming, and the menu system could use some work.

    Summary: I have this unit hooked up via component video to a Toshiba TV, and the image quality is fantastic. This unit has very good scaling when bringing a movie from anamorphic wide screen down to letterbox display - shimmers and moire are virtually absent. ... read more

  • High end picture quality - entry-level price

    Jan 27, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very good picture quality; Progressive scan capability; user configurable video adjustment
    Cons: Locks up occaisionally on multi-layered disks and some mp3s; slow to load jpegs; mediocre remote

    Summary: Let's face it, these days the difference between high end and low end electronics increasingly comes down to features, not picture or sound quality. A good example of this trend is the JVC S502SL DVD player. While it lacks the features and sturdy ... read more

  • I FINALLY got rid of my Samsung for this!

    Nov 23, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: All the features I wanted at a great price!
    Cons: None yet as I can see

    Summary: Perhaps you remember me as having all sorts of issues with my Samsung DVD-709 player. Well, recently I replaced it with this JVC model. I originally bought one without the box and it ended up pixelizing any movie I played so I returned it to get one in ... read more

  • Neat dvd player with potential

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Versatile dvd player. slim design.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I have done some researching on a dvd player that I can be happy with, can do a lot of functions and be upgradable to a component t.v. and the JVC XV-S502SL is the one. For starters the slim design makes it possible for you to place the player anywhere ... read more

  • Plays every type of SVCD

    Sep 16, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plays VCD, S-VCD, DVD, CD, MP3
    Cons: the CD tray feels little flimsy and cheap.

    Summary: This unit is great. It plays all the S-vcds I made using tmpgenc encoder and dvd movie factory from ulead. the only caveat is that on the tmpgenc, make sure you reduce the CBR down to 2450, at the full 2520, the video tends to jerk and skip ... read more

  • great video player

    Sep 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: plays CD, CDRW, MP3 CD's is a progressive scan player
    Cons: Does not play DVD audio, SACD, HDCD. Poor audio decoders

    Summary: The real strength for this player is the quality of video it gives, whether in progressive scan or not. In progressive scan, if the famous chroma bug is there, it is not all that apparent. I have also yet to have any technical problems with the player, ... read more

    Pros: Very versatile, almost every format, slim, amazing picture, feature packed
    Cons: Randomness of MP3s and jpeg playback

    Summary: I did quite a lot of research on DVDs, looked at the Sonys, the Toshibas, and a few of the high end ones. I ended up getting a 600BK (epinions doesnt have this as an option, there are only a few features difference) (Dolby Audio, Better ... read more

    Pros: STYLISH, PROGRESSIVE SCAN, LARGE RANGE ZOOM FUNCTION, MULTIPLE MEDIA PLAYBACK.
    Cons: 3D PHONIC SOUND HONESTLY I CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE.

    Summary: I JUST PURCHASED A BIG SCREEN TV AND WANTED TO GET A PROGRESSIVE SCAN DVD PLAYER TO USE THE FULL POTENTIAL OF THE BIG SCREEN. SINCE I PURCHASED A JVC TV I FIGURED THAT I WOULD LOOK INTO A JVC DVD PLAYER. THIS DVD PLAYER WAS MODERATELY PRICED COMPARED TO ... read more

    Pros: Digital Direct Progressive Scan, Reading of Discs, Component Video
    Cons: Big Remote

    Summary: I upgraded from an cheap, ancient DVD Player: the Apex AD-1000. I bought the JVC because I bought a projection TV at the same time, which I read are best with progressive scanning DVD Players. The best part of this DVD Player is all the media ... read more

    Pros: Thinner, with the same quality.
    Cons: As of yet, I don't have any.

    Summary: If you are like me, you have a lot of components in your home entertainment center. Sometimes it seems like there just isn't enough room. Personally, I don't mind stacking my DVD player on top of my CD player or VCR...they all don't need thier own ... read more
