The only JVC product I've ever owned is a 27" CRT TV. I bought it back in 2002. When I first got it, I loved it. The picture was very good and the TV sounded excellent. A couple of years later, it seemed that the picture degraded some. Details started to become lost in dark scenes. Now, you can't really watch a movie with a lot of dark scenes, such as The Crow, because you can barely see what's going on. Then for some reason, about 15 minutes after you turn it on, it makes a very loud humming/ buzzing sound for 20 minutes. Then the sound goes away. I still have the TV in the spare bedroom.
