    Comments about JVC 55" Class LED HDTV:

    Ordered this TV in Dec 2014. Opened the TV in March 2015. To the big dismay, the monitor was all cracked. Had been three months, and thought it was a loss. Called JVC support, but it was not helpful at all. They said that the warranty doesn't cover that, even though the booklet said that JVC should be contacted for damaged package. With almost no hope, called PC Richard representative. To my big surprise, they immediately agreed to send the replacement at no cost. I got the replacement in a week, and just installed it today. Works like a charm. Being in Washington DC area, I had never heard of PC Richard!!!! Now, you have an ardent follower in me. My friends know about you, thanks to your prompt service and willingness to do the right thing/going above and beyond for the customer. Am moving to a new house, and would be visiting your site a lot for more products!!!!

      Comments about JVC 55" Class LED HDTV:

      The TV was delivered exactly as expected and was very easy to install. The ROKU stick works great. The picture quality is equivalent to my Sony Bravia which cost double the price, and the sound quality is better than the Sony. I am very pleased with the TV. The main issues are the remote control which is not back lit, and it is a little thicker than most on the market now. Overall it is a great value and great quality.

      Comments about JVC 55" Class LED HDTV:

      Very good for the price. For my untrained eyes, I doubt I could tell the difference between this and higher end sets; I'm just not the videophile type.

      I have no complaints whatsover about the set. I also tried the Disney WoW calibration with a Blu-ray player, but the white balancing slides were all the same. After calbrating the best I could, I decided one of the default settings was better than I could calibrate. Even after calibrating, the various values I set were mere single digits off the default setting I'm using.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Quick delivery, but miscommunication on the delivery date. I didn't realize I had to call to schedule delivery to my residence; I thought they would call me. I eventually called and drove to pick up set myself.

        Beautiful picture quality and fantastic sound. The Roku included gives us any option for viewing movies we could ever want. Love this T.V..

        Service and delivery comments:

        We live in a rural area and there was confusion with the freight company over where we were located and whether they would make the drive to our home or transfer it to yet another carrier adding two more days to the delivery time. I convinced them to make the drive as it had already been 7 days since ordering. They made the 100 mile drive and it was delivered before Christmas as we wanted.

          The unit had a decent picture. I'm sure there are better but for the price its good. The streaming stick is a nice bonus. The remote is marginal and is not backlit.

                I did a lot of research on this TV and others in this class range. I'm very happy with my purchase. The picture is crisp and clear. The colors are vibrant. There is little to no glare. ROKU streaming works great when it "works" locked up on me several times. I also notice the ROKU streaming stick gets very hot, maybe it's over heating? I haven't gotten around to call ROKU support yet I'll write a follow up if it gives me the option.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was quick they also called to setup a convenient time for drop off. Product arrived in excellent condition no damage to the box.

                    Not quite a "smart tv" but it is exactly what I was looking for. No complicated programming or software updates, pretty much plug and play. And roku is a perfect complement. If you want a TV with a great picture and sound then you can't go wrong with this smart enough TV.
