Saw a great deal on this tv at Best Buy that ends tonight. I haven't been able to find any reviews of it and thought I'd check and see if anyone here has any pros/cons of it? I would be playing my Xbox 360 a lot on it and I am worried about lag that I hear some LCDs will give you. The set contrast ratio is 800/1. That seems a little low compared to others, how much does that affect picture quality? Thanks in advance for any quick responces since I need to decide tonight to get in on the deal.

I have tried to get some opinions on this model as well all day today since I can not see it locally with no luck. I decided to just go ahead and order it because it seemed like a really good and JVC LCDs seem to get positive reviews even though they are not as popular as the other brands. Hopefully this model will follow suite otherwise it will go back to BB. good luck.

Sorry, I don't own a 667 but an earlier model (LT-40FH96). I've had my JVC for nine months. I LOVE it!!! If the overall quality of the 667 is even close to the FH96, you would not regret a purchase.

Thanks a lot. Can you comment at all on the possible lag issues with playing video games on it?

I don't play games on my set, sorry. I do watch a lot of football and baseball. I have not noticed any lag in the games or watching the scrolling text. My set, as do the newer models, has a 8ms response time.

blstanle, please post impressions of your JVC when you get it. I missed out on the deal.
Nmlobo, thanks for the input.

Well, I got cold feet after ordering blindly and decided to cancel the order. I think I am going to hold out for a plasma.
