JVC LT-32J300 LCD HDTV Review
The JVC LT-32J300 is a pretty vanilla set. Other than the USB port, there isn't a lot to draw users in.
Tour & Design
The JVC LT-32J300's screen is surrounded by a glossy black beze. Underneath that is a speaker grill that has a plastic bit running through its center, horizontally. In the middle of the speaker is the power indicator.
The back of the TV has its ports on the right side of its plateau. The back of the TV is also where you'll find the mounting points.
The left side of the TV has the on-set controls and a USB port for viewing pictures. The right side is boring and has no features.
The stand is glossy, black, and plastic. Unfortunately, it doesn't swivel or rotate. The mounting points are on the back of the device.
The controls are on the left side of the TV. They are, in order, input, menu, channels, volume, and power.
The LT-32J300's remote is what the standard JVC remote would look like if it went on a hunger strike. Some changes from the previous model include a repositioning of the channel and volume buttons, a different d-pad, and a few button swaps. The new remote's layout is more similar to the average TV remote nowadays. One thing that definitely changed for the worse are the V-buttons along the top. On the prior remote, these buttons were labeled as inputs, with descriptions below them. On this one, they're just V1 through V5.
In the Box *(5.0)*
The LT-32J300 ships with manuals, a remote, and batteries for said remote. We thought setup was simple, but other JVC models come with the stand pre-attached.
The JVC LT-42P300 isn't the cutest or most stylish television we've reviewed, but it also isn't ugly. There's an interesting design to the speakers, where plastic shelf bifurcates them, but we're not sure it adds much to aesthetic value. The TV does have a glossy black bezel, which we aren't fans of. The TV also has a glowing blue power indicator. If this annoys you, you can turn it off in the Setting tab on the main menu.
