    At marginally under £500, JVC’s LC-32DA8BJ looks very good value on paper. It’s HD Ready, of course (we wouldn’t review it if it wasn’t), with a native 1366 x 768 pixel count; its connections include twin HDMIs and a component video input to meet your HD needs

    Today's rear-pro TVs are an interesting high-performance alternative to flatpanels, and this set certainly wins design points. It looks as slim as a 65in rear-pro set ever could, with a tiny 1cm wide bezel and surprisingly shallow 29.5cm depth. The 65DS8 employs JVC's own DILA projection technology, delivering a Full HD resolution and claimed contrast ratio of 10,000:1.

    This rear-projection behemoth sports a staggering 65in screen, which, you have to say, makes its £3,200 price tag look very affordable compared to flat TVs of similar dimensions. While it’s definitely not as slender as an LCD or plasma, the JVC HD 65DS8 is by far the slimmest rear-pro set yet, measuring just 29.5cm. You can even hang it on a wall.

    You don't have to look hard to spot the 42DA8BJ's main claim to fame. It's a 42in LCD TV that costs just £1,000. But is it really as great value as it appears? It's nothing special to look at, certainly.

    Having often struggled to keep pace with the endless price-slashing antics of its rivals, JVC has finally got down and dirty with the budget boys with the LT-37DG8: a 37in LCD TV costing a mere £900

    Every new generation of flatscreen TVs brings with it some new must-have gizmo. And for the current generation, that gizmo is 100Hz.Originally used in cathode ray tube TVs to tackle flickering images, 100Hz doubles the refresh rate of PAL signals.

    The latest fad in the flat TV world at the moment is undoubtedly 100Hz - and with good reason. For the process of doubling the usual PAL scanning frequency has been proven to ingeniously avoid LCD technology's infamous problems with resolution loss over moving objects.

    This is JVC's first Full HD LCD TV and aims to catch the attention of those who demand the top spec. The screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 only tells part of the story, however - this TV actually can't accept a 1080p signal

    If we've grumbled at the price of JVC LCD TVs in the past, we're eating our words at the sight of the manufacturer's entry to this group test: the LT-32DA8BJ weighs in at a slender £700, which is exceptionally good value.

    The 37DG8 is one of JVC's less exciting options. Its resolution is a standard 1,366 x 768 and there's no 100Hz. It doesn't even have the highest level of JVC's DynaPix picture processing engine...

    With a slightly over-designed look that's at odds with the sleek, black look that's become so popular, the LT-26DA8BJ is not the best looking of the LCDs out there.

    JVC has put a lot of store behind its D-ILA technology rear-pros, butit still knows a thing or to about LCD flatpanels. How does this £1,00042in model rate against the competition?

    We've had a go at JVC before for seldom being competitive on the price of its LCD TVs, but its £700 LT-32DA8BJ properly puts to put that issue to bed. The price gets you a reasonably well-built TV too - though not a particularly attractive one

    We've had cause to criticise JVC in the past for not managing to be competitive with its LCD pricing. But the Japanese manufacturer's new 32in model seems to put such criticisms to bed in no uncertain terms by being yours for the meagre sum of £700

    First impressions of JVC's LT-26DAB8BJ, aren't especially great. It looks rather clunky in its build, and the fascia design is too fussy for our tastes with its bitty combination of different colours and finishes

    Your search for a TV to put in the bedroom is over: you can't go wrong with this superb set from JVC. The LT-26DX7's 26in screen size is ideal for the bedroom and its gorgeous looks are guaranteed to give the room a hint of hi-tech style

    Even though the HD-Ready JVC HD-56ZR7J lacks the svelte looks of a style-statement flatscreen TV, it stills cooks up an aesthetic storm - not bad going for a rear-pro TV. Things look good on the inside, too.

    JVC's LT-26DX7BJ starts badly by being very expensive. This places an immediate burden on it to deliver something more than its rivals - a burden it carries well, thanks to a truly impressive set of features.

    Taking in the incredibly svelte and stylish JVC LT-32DX7, you'd be forgiven for thinking that its speakers had been jettisoned in favour of a design masterclass. But that's just not the case. This TV packs in more than surprising sound, though.

    First impressions of the JVC LT-32DS75 aren't great. For even though it costs a fair whack, its finish is less than impressive - a vision in flimsy plastic. Connections fail to set our pulse racing too: there's just one HDMI rather than two.

    With LCD TV prices taking a nose dive, it's still satisfying to see big name brands dipping their toes around the £1,000 mark, like this 32-inch offering from JVC.

    In contrast to its small range of plasma sets, JVC really has embraced LCD technology, and boasts an extensive line-up of screens. But engineers must have realised the lack of anything big in the range and to correct this inbalance...

    Costing nearly twice as much as many budget sets the JVC's LT-32DX7 clearly needs to be something pretty special. Just as well, then that its design is both striking and technically interesting.
