I'm deciding between the JVC i'art 48 inch and Mits 46 inch widescreen. My budget is to not go over $2000. Between the 2 tvs which is better for watching digital cable and dvds? Which gives better true picture and more enjoyment? Currently I have JVC 27 inch tv. heh heh....time to upgrade to widescreen now.

i just recieved my mit 46809 this friday and it is really good. there was obvious signs of red push, but after a little avia action, all is well. i've watched harry potter, and x men on it so far and the picture quality is excellent. also watched the kings vs. lakers game on it and i felt like i was in the stadium watching it. i would recomment this set.

The AVIA will help you calibrate your TV at a novice level, adjust brightness levels, contrast etc at the best level you can get without needing an ISF tech or start to learn about how to self calibrate the TV.


You can get it for around 35 dollars at amazon.com or other places.

I have had the 46809 since Oct '01 and I am very happy. I agree that with some proffessional tweaking it will be even better. I have used the Avia and Video Essentials DVD to do some tweaks. I like the Video Essentials a little more.

Also you should get the 46 at a good price because the '03 models are coming out and from what I have read the picture will not be any better, but they are more expensive. The additional expense is that the platinum line now have a built in HD tuner. But given some unkowns around copy protection and whether DVI and Firewire will be the final interconnect I wait on those sets and get a STB in about a year.

I have a JVC and was looking at the Mits 46". I decided on the JVC for several reasons. First, the Mits needs a stand. This set is very low without one. So, unless you already own a piece of furniture, there will be a extra expense of the stand. Second, the price of the Mits (around here anyway) was higher. The best price I have seen locally is 2K. I have seen it on the internet as low as 1700, but you have to add shipping on top of that. And I would much rather buy something like a RPTV locally for obvious reasons. Third, the JVC seems to be a little more up to date than the Mits as far as connections go. Not to mention 2" bigger. ;) I think both sets are capable of great images if fed a HD signal and basically calibrated with the afore mentioned DVDs.
