JVC LT-47X788 Review – 47” LCD HDTV

Up for review: JVC LT-47X788.  The JVC LT-47X788 is 47 inch LCD HDTV from JVC’s 788 series. The models of the series gain popular attention for their faster response time, high contrast ratio and wider viewing angle. Review of the JVC LT-47X788 reveals about the relatively inexpensive model that has captured the attention of the HDTV buyers with its solid HD video processing and attractive styles.

The JVC LT-47X788 has native resolution of 1,920×1080. The 1080p allows enough pixels, enabling the TV to completely resolve the details of 1080i and 1080p sources. The model is featured with four picture presets such as Dynamic, Standard, Theater, and Game. Each kind of picture preset is fully customizable. For instance, the theater mode is the best option to get optimum picture quality for darkroom viewing. However, the downside of the model is that the HDMI inputs don’t have independent input memories. This means, if you have set a particular picture preset for 1 HDMI input, it automatically gets applied to other HDMI input as well. One of the most noteworthy features of the model is the USB port in the back that allows the users directly connect the LCD HDTV to digital camera or USB stick.
