I am on the market for a direct view TV. I really would like to go with an HDTV ready, since it's only me and my wife and I don't plan to buy another TV for the next 5 years. So I need a future-proof TV. That's why I'm considering the JVC with DVI/HDCP.
I read a lot of discussion about people wondering if they should buy an HDTV now or wait for a DVI/HDCP model. And nobody mention this JVC model! So, I'm wondering if it's just that people don't know that there's a DVI model available right now or if the set is just a bad one.
Since this is the only direct view HDTV with DVI/HDCP available at the moment (at least, that I know of), I was expecting a lot of discussion about this set, but it's just not happening. And I already searched *************** and google.groups.
Is there anybody here that have seen it at a shop or at home? How does it perform compared to Sony XBR and Panny TAU? Picture quality? Geometry problems?
Just some details on my situation. I just moved from another country and I currently don't have any TV. I'm using a friend's 20" set that I have to return the next month. So, just wait for new DVI models to come up is not an option. I could buy a crappy TV for now and buy an HDTV at the end of the year, but I'd rather not, since this crappy TV will be useless after I buy the HDTV set.
