JVC LT-46DZ7 Reviewed

JVC LT-46DZ7The JVC LT-46DZ7 from JVC’s DZ/Z series is a 46-inch LCD HDTV which supports 720p, 1080i all the way up to 1080p offering a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Interestingly enough, the HD inputs on this set do not support 1080p, but rather take the 1080i signal and convert the signal to 1080p, this will be fine for 90% of people, but for HD enthusiasts it might not be. Inputs include 2x HDMI, component, VGA PC input, 2x Scart, also featured is an internal digital tuner with a CI slot for adding subscription channels.
TrustedReviews have taken a look at the JVC LT-46DZ7 and say, DIST works supremely well, standard definition looks much sharper than it does normally on a full HD TV, and crucially the extra detailing is added without seemingly adding significant amounts of noise or other yucky side effects. The noise reduction routines do their work well too, provided you don’t set them too high.

JVC’s 46DZ7 full HD debut gets so many things right that we have no doubt the brand will one day – probably fairly soon – turn in a truly outstanding full HD TV. But for now there are just enough concerns about a couple of common LCD flaws to leave the 46DZ7 as a good TV rather than a great one.
