Conclusion
{{article.attachments['jvc-lt-32j300-intro.jpg']}}The JVC LT-32J300 is a pretty vanilla set. Other than the USB port, there isn't a lot to draw users in. While the set wasn't terrible overall, it did have some quality issues. The RGB responses had issues towards their higher intensities, and the TV itself has a dynamic backlight that can't be turned off. There were a few areas where the LT-32J300 had an average performance, but overall it didn't impress us for it's price. If you can find it on sale for more than $100 off, it'd make a nice entry-level budget option, but we'd probably recommend the Panasonic TC-32LZ85 or Samsung LN32A450 over it.

Versus Panasonic TC-37LZ85

In this match-up, the LT-32J300 manages to underperform the TC-37LZ85 in just about every category except for greyscale gamma. Since it's slightly better overall and costs less, we'd recommend the TC-37LZ85 over the LT32J300.

Versus Samsung LN32A450

On this comparison, the JVC is again pretty outmatched. The Samsung is not only slightly better overall, but it doesn't have that annoying dynamic backlighting issue.

Versus JVC LT-32P679

It's JVC against JVC in this fratricidal match-up. On this one, the LT32J300 comes out on top, however. It slightly outpaced the LT-32P679 the whole way and didn't have the greyscale gamma issue either. Though it's a better set, however, it is slightly more expensive.
