Tour & Design

**Front**

From the front the JVC LT-42J300 looks very similar to the JVC's other HDTVs. There is a glossy black bezel surrounding the 42-inch display. Beneath the bezel are the two speakers. Unlike JVC's iPod compatible HDTVs, however, you won't find an iPod dock in between the speakers, although you do still get a nice blue glowy thing there.

On the front there is no iPod dock towards the bottom

**Back**

We weren't able to take a shot of the JVC LT-42J300's back, but you will find all of the ports there.

**Sides**

The right side of the JVC LT-42J300 is featurless, but on the left side of the HDTV you will find the on-TV controls and the USB port near the bottom.

On the left are the controls

**Stand/Mount**

The JVC LT-42J300's stand looks just like every other JVC stand we've seen. That means it's wide enough to give a stable base, has a glossy black finish and, unfortunately, doesn't swivel.

The stand has been slightly redesigned to reduce the profile

**Aesthetics**

The JVC LT-42J300's isn't an ugly HDTV, but it's not particularly attractive either. It's the kind of TV that willl fade into your decor, and that's exactly what many people want out of their HDTV.
