Welcome to a review of the JVC LT-42EM73 42 inch 1080p 60Hz LED-LCD HDTV. Looking for a large screen TV that has plenty of features, high definition resolution and a low price tag? This model by JVC, although not a Smart TV, has the most important features necessary to enjoy TV viewing with excellent performance. This large screen TV has a very slim design, with clean lines, and is easily placed on a stand or mounted on the wall. With wide viewing angles, you can watch TV from almost any vantage point in the room. Equipped with 2 HDMI ports and 1 USB port, there are plenty of options for connecting external equipment. A VGA port is available for connection to a PC for those wanting to use the large screen as a monitor. There is also a headphone output to listen to the TV or music without disturbing others.

The part number for the remote control is RM-C1240.

With 1080p high definition resolution and a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, you will enjoy stunning picture quality with clarity, vibrant colors and enhanced contrast ratio. For game playing, 120 Hz is generally preferred to reduce motion blur but you’ll find that this model, with 60 Hz and a 6.5 response time, is adequate for playing games. This model has 2 built-in speakers, each with 8 watts capacity. Although perfectly suitable for TV watching, to achieve surround sound like a movie theater, most users will connect a soundbar or receiver to enhance the sound and deliver more clean, crisp sound with more depth and clarity. Users interested in environmental issues will be pleased to note that this model is certified energy efficient. The biggest drawback for users appears to be that the DirectTV remote cannot be used nor is there any code to make it useable. Otherwise, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this model, a purchase you will be happy you made.

• Inexpensive
• High definition resolution
