    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good Looking, Bright Picture, Excellence Sound, Lots Of Inputs, Great Price
    Cons: Basic Remote, Deep Cabinet, Can't Set Anything On Top

    Summary: Honestly, I did not do a lot of studying up before buying the JVC AV56WP74 RePro I'Art HDTV. I purchased it within 20 minutes of seeing it due to the nice sale price and size of the screen. I did, however, have a week to study up on rear projection TV's ... read more

    Pros: Great Picture
    Cons: Defective Convergence part.

    Summary: I purchased my big screen the day on a day after Thanksgiving day special at Best Buy. I normally think the extended warranties are a rip off, why do they push them so much, right? Well in this case I wish I would have purchased it. Before owning the ... read more

    Pros: The picture quality (Progressive DVD) is exceptional.
    Cons: I haven't found any, however I don't really use all the features on this TV.

    Summary: I've had my unit since June 2003 and so far I am very happy with it. I was considering a Sony 57" 16x9 at the time, but was not quite convinced it was worth the $2300. I found the JVC unit at Best Buy by accident and was very impressed with the picture ... read more

    Pros: Nice while it lasted

    Summary: We've had our 56" less than 4 years and wham! the red convergence is totally out screwed up. We messed with the manual convergence for a couple of hours and it's still very bad. No troubleshooting help at the JVC site or in the product manual. We live in ... read more

    Pros: Good picture when it works.
    Cons: Not worth it no matter how good the picture if it breaks.

    Summary: I have had this TV for about 3 years. I do not know if they still sell them but I have a convergence problem with green and red out of wack. A $400 plus repair. I have checked the internet and others have had the same problem. How many are not writing ... read more

    Pros: Big! Nice picture!
    Cons: Wish it wasn't broken!

    Summary: We've had this tv for 18 months now and the picture began "shadowing" red and green. Followed the users guide to set manual convergence, but unable to do so. I called a JVC authorized repair center who advised me that it needed to be repaired, ... read more

    Pros: Sharp picture;value;ease of setup and x-box super friendly
    Cons: standard problems that all projo's have; size, off center viewing problems, etc.

    Summary: This is a great unit for the money. The sound is not bad for the cabinet size and auto-convergence settings work really good. I use this for mainly my DVD's and the X-Box. When you combine the digital inputs with the X-Box hi-def kit, it is an awesome ... read more

    Pros: None. My old Toshiba big screen TV was a lot better
    Cons: The screen is very hard to see if viewed from either corners.

    Summary: While watching, the screen went dark (no picture) all of a sudden. Then it produced some popping noises just like someone was hitting it from inside with a hammer. After one week, several phone call attempts to JVC for warranty repair produced no result. ... read more

    Pros: Large Bang for the Buck. DVI Input. Great Picture.
    Cons: Deep Cabinet. Lighted remote is a joke.
