JVC LT-32J300 LCD HDTV Review

32 in.

The JVC LT-32J300 is a pretty vanilla set. Other than the USB port, there isn't a lot to draw users in.

Ergonomics & Durability*(5.25)*


The JVC LT-32J300's remote is a bit thinner than the typical JVC remote. While it's definitely an improvement, it's still not great. Like other JVC offerings, the remote is well balanced, but since the remote is long and thin, shifing your grip means you'll lose this balance. Also, since it's long and thin, no two button groupings are within easy access of each other, causing users to shift their grip often.

Button Layout & Use*(6.5)*


Although shaped a bit differently from the standard JVC fare, the JVC LT-32J300's remote contains the same basic layout. The thinner design allows easier lateral access to buttons, but since the remote is tall, you'll have to shift your grip to reach different button groupings.

Our other issue are the V buttons, which change inputs. The first few toggle between HDMI inputs, which the last few change between composite, component and such. We wish the buttons would have been labeled as such.

The remote will work as long as it's pointed in the general direction of the TV, so at leat you won't require pinpoint precision.

Programming & Flexibility*(6.0)*


One nice aspect about this remote is you can use it as a universal remote. The manual contains a good set of instructions on how to set this up, including a bunch of codes for other manufacturer's devices.
