Standard Definition on this set is a bit compromised, but the HD picture quality is very good. The power output, at only 20 Watts is rather low for a set of this size. This JVC set (HD56G786) weighs less than a hundred pounds, which is surprising given its large stature. This High-Definition set is rather slow changing between channels. If there were one thing to improve, this would be a good candidate. Set up was easy and intuitive. This JVC has two 1394 ports which is good preparation for the future. Manufacturers seem to be gravitating towards this standard to connect hardware. Truthfully, the worst HDTV is better than the best standard TV picture. Digital television and especially HDTV is such an improvement. For those in the market for a large HDTV, the JVC was not completely razor-sharp, but the huge screen makes up for some of those shortcomings. From reality shows to sports and news, there is more HDTV content everyday. And more consumers are adopting HDTV all of the time. JVC, a leading worldwide corporation, has long been a leader in consumer electronics. This 56-inch LCoS model in a side-by-side comparison with an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) model held its own very well. The set features 4th generation Digital Image Scaling Technology (D.I.S.T.), Sleep Timer, World Clock, Input Naming, Advanced Hyper Surround Sound with Front Firing Speakers and much more. If you are thinking of a 720p set and want to go large, this may be the set for you. It is one of the most affordable, large sets on the market. While this model can‚Äôt compete in clarity and other features with a 1080p LCoS model, the price will lure many consumers in for a closer look.
