4-0 out of 5 stars good for the $$$
This camera does a GREAT JOB for the price. It has all kinds of great features and effects. The only negative I can think of is that it makes a slight noise when zooming in and out.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent choice for first time video camera buyers.
This is the first video camera I've purchased, and I'm completely satisfied with it after several months of use. I've found it to be affordable (important initial consideration), lightweight(important if you're brave enough to let the kids record), simple to use(important if you let grandma borrow it to record the other grandkids), and the recordings to be top-notched. These basic features and an excellent brand-name should make any new purchaser feel confident with this camera as his/her initial choice. One caution, the camera's package includes everything you need but a blank VHS-C tape (something experience camera users are aware of, but novices are not, hence the 4 stars, not the 5).

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the price BUT...
We love this new camera because it is the same features we had in our old camera.. We wanted a new one that had the flip out screen and for the price it cant be beat... BUT we cant believe they took away the personal title generator where you could type your own title in instead of using the 7 or 8 presets they have... It was a must ~ now we will have to learn to do without.. Still a great buy for those not willing or ready to go to digital and still wanting the top features...

Amazon.com Product Description

Designed with commercial and hospitality applications in mind (bars, restaurants, schools, fitness centers, etc.), JVC's 20-inch AV-20F475 stereo television packs a one-two punch of stylishness and affordability that will likely endear it to individual consumers as well. It's loaded with innovative theater-oriented features like black-level expansion and a Real Flat CRT with an Invar shadow mask to render detailed, high-contrast images with no geometric distortion. The set's stereo speakers are powered by a generous 7.5 watts each.

The AV-20F475's 3-line digital comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt). A shadow mask is a thin sheet of perforated metal behind the screen that restricts electron flow, each hole in the sheet corresponding to a single pixel. An Invar mask uses an alloy that's especially resistant to the high temperatures generated by the electron beam, allowing in a brighter, clearer picture. An Apacon circuit further enhances low-level details for greater picture sharpness.

With 16:9 raster compression mode, you can watch anamorphic DVDs in their true 16:9 format--the TV uses all scan lines for the picture within the letter box area so that anamorphic widescreen DVDs display in their proper resolution.

The AV-20F475 receives not only stereo broadcasts, but Second Audio Programming (or SAP), too, and you always have Hyper Surround to simulate surround sound from any two speakers. BBE High-Definition Audio improves speech intelligibility and restores the dynamic range of compressed musical passages.

Top-of-the-line component-video inputs accept video from compatible DVD players and satellite systems, while S-video and standard RCA composite-video inputs accommodate most other video sources. The set offers a total of 3 audio/video inputs, one of which is built into the front panel so you can hook up a VCR, camcorder, or gaming console. A rear-panel RF input accommodates older VCRs, cable boxes, and antennas. Want to listen through your stereo system? Use the set's stereo, fixed-level analog-audio outputs.

A multifunction timer turns the TV on and off for you when you're not home or works as an alarm clock or program reminder; a sleep timer saves energy by turning off the set after you've nodded off. Other features include an interactive plug-in menu, half-tone onscreen display, channel guard, and V-Chip parental controls, closed captioning with text display, XDS (Extended Data Service) auto clock set with ID display, and a full-function, universal remote with DVD control ability.

Amazon.com Product Description

The JVC GR-DVL510U is a true workhorse of a camcorder. A number of great features usually found in higher-end electronics are packed into this small, easy-to-carry device. The 680,000-pixel CCD of the GR-DVL510U also captures digital stills in many modes--such as full screen, frame, pin-up, negative, or multipicture--onto tape, or the included 8 MB MMC card. The DVL510U is compatible with both MultiMedia or SD memory cards.

The GR-DVL510U also comes with a variety of multimedia interfacing capabilities, making transferring DV recordings or digital photos to a computer fast and simple. In addition to the standard IEEE 1394 DV interface, there is also a USB port for quick transfers to PC. With the included software and cable you can easily bring your photos into your computer for editing or e-mailing.

Being in a low-light environment is no problem for the GR-DVL510U. In addition to the integrated auto light there is also a special night shooting function that enhances low-light sensitivity so you can still capture clear images at night in full color.

Also included are an AC power adapter/charger, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, remote control, CD-ROM software for photo editing, shoulder strap, and RS232C PC/AT compatible cables. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera
I did a lot of research before buying. It is the best value in this class. Don't expect great snap shot quality from this camera and others in the same class. You need progressive scan and at least 1 mega pixel CCD for a good quality picture. That would put you into a totally different price range. Manufacturers advertise mega pixel camcorders pretty loudly and they are currently above $1200. The video quality is great (almost DVD) and low light sensitivity is good. I don't use special effect while filming so I can't comment. It does not record analog video. Manual says it records the DV but I have not tried it. Overall it is great for indoor/outdoor everyday filming even with my picky taste.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great video camera only
This is a great "video camera" and a not so good digital still camera. If you are purchasing this "video camera" to use to shoot video then I will recommend this camera, but if you want a great digital still camera then purchas a separate digital still camera. The vast majority of "video cameras" are best used for video and not digital still photography. So once again buy this "video camera" for video and buy a digital still camera for digital photography.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Video/Poor Still Photos
My husband gave me this camera for Christmas because he knew I really wanted a digital camera and I had expressed some interest in a camcorder as well...He figured this would do double-duty very well. I played with it all day Christmas day taking video and stills and was loving it. The video was awesome...very easy to use and of decent quality. Battery drained very quickly, but most do, so that wasn't a big deal. Close-up shots looked really good. The HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT came when I downloaded the still shots to my computer. They were of poor quality at best...colors not true and blurry even though all were taken at the highest resolution possible. I am returning the camera and exchanging it. I'm NOW told that most just don't have enough pixels to produce a good photo...Live and Learn! Good Luck...

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good for the price
Its been 4 days since I bought this camera and I was able to get going in about 15 minutes (after charge ofcourse). I would have given this 5 stars if not for the quality of still pictures. But the still pictures are blurr even in the best of conditions. But I have a very good still camera, so I am not complaining...too much...
Every thing else is pretty good for the price...Since I am a first time owner, I am very happy with my decision.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use
This camcorder far exceeded my expectations and is very easy and simple to use. The Mini-DV media is by far the highest quality and JVC offers Sony-like quality at an affordable price. The remote control feature makes playback very convenient. The media card allows for a quick transfer of digital still shots to your PC and ultimately to the WEB. The video allows for 1/60 second editing (firewire is recommended for this) as well as a variety of frame transitioning options. Very lightweight and easy to use. After many different purchases over the last 10 years, JVC has not let me down. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

When it comes to VHS picture quality, you can't do much better than JVC's S-VHS HR-S3912U. The deck offers hi-fi, four-head performance with S-VHS ET (Expansion Technology), which lets you record broad-bandwidth Super VHS signals on affordable standard-VHS tapes. The player/recorder comes with front audio/video jacks for easy hookup with camcorders, video games, or an extra VCR. One-year, eight-event express programming and a full-function remote simplify scheduling and operation, while a handy child lock keeps "unauthorized" viewers from watching or taping specific channels and time slots.

Other features include Active Video Calibration (which automatically judges head condition and tape quality to maximize the potential of the tape being used) and VCR Plus+ with cable-box control (which lets you program on the fly by entering the PlusCode numbers found in most TV listings). A JVC Cable Eye controller jack automatically switches channels on your cable box or satellite receiver for ready taping or viewing from the HR-S3912U, but you'll need to request the Cable Eye module from JVC (free of charge) to use this feature.

You can choose from four picture-technology settings: "Auto/Normal" enables the Active Video Calibration System; "Soft" reduces image coarseness when viewing overplayed tapes; "Edit" minimizes degradation during editing (recording and playback); and "Sharp" gives you clearer, sharper-edged pictures.

When used in concert, JVC A/V Compu Link components like the HR-S3912U will power up and switch to the correct input anytime you play a DVD, videotape, CD, cassette, or even when you simply want to watch television. When you're done, you can power down the whole system with a single button.

1-0 out of 5 stars don't bother
How difficult can it be to make a VCR that connects to a cable box, is easy to program and produces a good, clear picture? Well, pretty difficult judging by this particular VCR. We hooked it up according to the manufacturer's instructions for attaching the VCR to our cable box but this was a total disaster. We then unhooked everything and tried again with the same results. First of all, it's not possible to record one program while watching another. Secondly, the procedure by which you enter information for setting a time for the VCR to record is simply awful. You can't just enter the times, you have to space down hour by hour, and then minute by minute and it's very easy to go past the time you want. Even worse, however, is the fact that you can't type in the channel you want, say channel 550, you have to space through all channels up to channel 550. Not that this matters, however, as the VCR apparently can only record about 20 channels (most between 2-20 along with 40, 42 and a few others). It was impossible to select any other channels. Bleah, we sent the VCR back to Amazon. You may have entirely different results is you're not using a cable box but even then you're left with the clumsy interface.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
Last year when we reconfigured our a/v system, I replaced an old Sony VCR that was on its last legs. At the time I bought the Sony, it was a pretty high-end deal - as I recall, I had paid more than $400 for it.

I had decided I wanted something with S-video inputs coming in from the cable box and S-video outputs to the TV. Locally, I could find only one machine, a Panasonic. I paid $200 for it, and boy was it a piece of junk. The first one, the S-video output didn't work. I returned it to the store and got another. All of the input and output jacks were attached flimsily; it felt like they were about to break anytime anything was attached. The usuer manual was incomprehensible. The menu system was convoluted. Most of all, the picture quality was terrible. On most tape rentals (we have a really great quirky rental place here - all VHS, no DVDs, believe it or not), there was always a distorted area at the top of the picture. About half of the tapes watched refused to track properly, even with constant manual adjustments. And black and white pictures (most of our rentals are of old movies) showed a lot of wierd artifacts in the boundaries between black and white areas.

As long as I was pulling everything apart this year to add an HDTV cable box, I decided to replace the Panasonic, and with some trepidation ordered this machine from Amazon. I couldn't find any reviews of the specific model, but from reviews of other machines it seemed as if ALL VCRs are now cheaply made afterthoughts.

I've been very pleasantly surprised. The unit is made of plastic, and the buttons on the machine itself feel pretty cheap and minimal. But the input and output jacks are well seated, no wiggle room for the cables. The manual is relatively understandable. (It took me a bit to figure out I had to separately configure both which and what type inputs and outputs I was using, but it wasn't that big a deal.) The menu system is vastly simpler than the Panasonic's. And best of all is the picture quality. No problems playing any of the rental tapes that gave the Panasonic such heartburn. Manual tracking adjustments from the remote are a bit clumsy, a two-button process. But this unit's automatic video calibration seems to set the tracking fine, so far no need for manual adjustments. And the sharpness and clarity of the picture are great. It's still VHS, not DVD or HDTV, but it's a quantum step up from what we've been suffering over the past year.

We don't tape much, so I can't yet speak to recording ease or quality.

Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware.
If you're looking to buy a DVD player with an exceptionally clear picture and your TV isn't a JVC, stay well away from this product. After buying this DVD player, I read in the manual that says, "There are some progressive TV and High-Definition TV sets that are not fully compatible with the player, resulting in the unnatural picture when playing back a DVD VIDEO disc in the Progressive scanning mode."

They aren't kidding. In fact, they probably aren't being very truthful about this, because I've tried this DVD player on 5 different HDTV sets from different companies including Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, and my RCA - all produced the same results, with a poor quality picture rife with heavy compression, artifacting, and motion blurs. Switching over from 480p to 480i with the component inputs makes a minimal difference in terms of the artifacting, but the picture becomes so grainy that it makes watching DVDs impossible. The quality is worse than cable. I've read through the manual about 10 times, I've fidgeted with every menu and setting on the DVD player and the TV, but was unable to get a decent picture.

I just tried a Sony DVD player which doesn't even have progressive scan, and using just s-video inputs, the picture quality is vastly superior. ... Read more

The JVC GR-SXM730U offers the convenience of VHS-C in a sleek, lightweight design. It is equipped with a 3-inch high-resolution color viewfinder for more realistic visuals while shooting, and has a built-in light that improves the picture in low-light shooting conditions.

SVHS ET allows you to record with that same high-resolution using any VHS-C tape. For full compatibility with any VHS video player you can record in standard VHS mode.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything I Wanted and More
When I decided to start shopping for a camcorder, not even fully intent on buying one yet, I ran across this particular one early on and, somewhat to my surprise, never found another one that offered as much as this one did. When I think of videorecorders and video cameras, I first think of Sony, but Sony didn't really offer a product with all of the features I found in this JVC camcorder. When I began my search, it didn't take long for me to decide that I wanted a VHS-C camcorder: I wanted to play my videos in a VCR, and I could not really afford a digital camcorder, anyway. Next, I decided I wanted a color LCD screen that was at least three inches. While zoom capability wasn't really that important to me, it also did play a factor in my decision-making process. Finally, if possible, I wanted something that could also serve as a digital camera.

This camcorder has all I wanted and more. In terms of recording modes, it offers S-VHS, S-VHS ET, and VHS. I'm not a photographic expert, but the S-VHS video playback of my tapes was much sharper and clearer than I expected; as far as I am concerned, digital video could not look much better than this and certainly offers no advantages for me to justify the extra expense. I should say that the camcorder is very light and comfortable in my hand no matter how much time I spend recording. As for the LCD screen, it is very nice. The colors, especially depending on the angle from which you are viewing it, often seem too bright, but the picture on the tape itself is perfect. One thing this model does not offer is a color viewfinder, but I don't plan on using the viewfinder much at all anyway. The black and white image on the viewfinder is very good, but using the viewfinder only serves to make you stumble around with your eyes pointed down. With the LCD screen, you can remain a part of the action as you record rather than come off as "some guy with a stupid camcorder" terrorizing your family and friends. The display rotates 270 degrees, as well, so you can record from almost any angle. One important feature of this camcorder is digital stabilization; it's hard to walk around and maintain a steady shot, and this features helps keep the jerky movements to a minimum. When it comes to zooming in, this camera really outdoes most of the competition, offering 400x . While anything at the maximum zoom is naturally going to be pretty grainy, the video quality is excellent until you get close to that maximum. Recording in darkness is also not a problem for this camcorder; besides having its own light source, it also comes with a "Night Alive" feature that increases light sensitivity and allows you to get color video in dark environments.

This is a dual camcorder, serving as a digital camera as well as a video recorder. Certainly, the quality of digital photos is not quite as good as true digital cameras offer, but they look really good to me. With 2 MB of flash memory, it can hold up to 30 digital images at one time. Other cameras offer a higher capacity for digital photos, but this is enough for me. The video capabilites come first in my mind, and the digital picture feature is just icing on the cake. The software that comes with this product is really good (at least for an amateur like myself), and I had no trouble hooking the cable up to my COM 2 port and downloading images.

There are a myriad of other features, many of which I am still just exploring. There are many combinations of screen fades/wipes and special effects. You can film your video as an old, black and white movie, really annoy your friends by stretching the width of the picture and making them look fat, add a strobe effect to jazz up the action, add a fog element for that touch of fantasy, or--my favorite--use video echo to make everything look ghostly and weird. There are more features than I can discuss here in this review.

Returning to simpler matters, I must say that the documentation that comes with this product is excellent. While it does take some time to figure out all of the many things the camcorder can do, there is no problem getting the thing up and recording almost right out of the box. On a final note, I must add that the sound quality is also very good. Since there is no way to use an external microphone with this product, I worried that I would have a hard time hearing people's conversations on tape. This is not a problem. Not only does it pick up the sounds you want to hear, it also picks up a lot of ambient sound as well. All in all, this JVC product offered me everything I really wanted in a camcorder, and I am more than happy with it. Now all I need is something interesting to record. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Set yourself up to enjoy just about any current media format with JVC's versatile HR-XVC25U combination DVD player and VCR. With MP3/WMA and JPEG image CD playback and hi-fi VHS performance, the unit is built to satisfy your music and home-theater needs. The HR-XVC25U plays not only DVD and multiple CD formats, but DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD-R, CD-R, CD-RW, VCD, and SVCD as well.

For the DVD player, top-of-the-line component-video outputs help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television. Now you can also enjoy cutting-edge DVDs alongside an existing library of videocassettes. The unit even offers an RF output for use with older TVs that lack composite-video inputs. With S-VHS quasi playback, you'll be able to watch (in regular VHS resolution) tapes recorded in Super-VHS, normally only compatible with more expensive S-VHS machines. Advanced programming can be set for one months and eight events, and Commercial Skip search quickly skims over 30-second increments during playback to put your program back in front of you more quickly.

19 micron heads deliver the clearest possible picture when recording or viewing in EP (extended-play) mode. Auto Repeat (VHS: unlimited) and repeat playback (DVD: A-B) makes this unit a perfect choice for trade shows and conventions. Other VCR features include child lock (prevents unintended viewings), index search, skip search, auto clock setting, auto timer setting, and auto tracking.

Two sets of left/right analog-audio outputs (one for each component) channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

2-0 out of 5 stars DVD door broken from start
Purchased this unit refurbished online, which I won't do again. Doubt any repair had gone on at all. From the start the DVD door would not open with the remote or the button on the unit. You could hear the motor trying, the machine just showed ERR across the front of the screen. Called JVC, they talked me through a reprogram, which of course did nothing, then suggested I take it in for repair! Yeah, right. While moving the unit around I could hear something rattling, so I unscrewed the side and shook it out, a broken chunk of plastic and a plastic dial, I would imagine the DVD door opening mechanism. Good thing it had been refurbished, eh? On the plus side, the VCR side worked fine, good picture and sound. Did not try recording. The remote was nice, thorough yet easy to use, and worked great with the TV. I was considering trying the unit again until reading all these reviews. Those of you that got well functioning units, it sounds like you got lucky. I'm looking elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this dvd/vcr despite what everyone says
I recently got this JVC dvd/vcr and I've had nothing but pleasure from it. I've had no problems. It's played all the dvds I have (admittedly I don't have any Disneys), and I love the features. It's nice and compact, saves me lots of wiring. It works well with my little TV antenna and does a great job recording tapes. The remote works with my Toshiba flat screen tv. It has a great zoom feature. It also remembers where you were on a dvd when you turn it off, so when you turn it back on it starts playing at the right spot. It's also progressive scan, so when I get an hdtv compatible set it will play at the higher resolutions, something that my older panasonic dvd player won't do, even though it also has component cable capability. All in all, I have to give it 5 stars. For the price (especially if you buy it during one of the "offers" in Electronics, like I did) it's a pretty good deal.

1-0 out of 5 stars I wish the negative reviews were there when I purchase this
I bought this oversized paper weight in September thinking I got a great deal for a Christmas gift. The unit stayed in the box until December. We cracked it open just before Christmas. The hook up sucks and is pretty confusing for those not literate with electronics. The DVD player which is the main reason I bought this, only worked for 30 days. Here I joined a damn DVD club and ordered a truck load of kid videos for my daughter. The wonderful warranty only covers labor for 30 days. Well since I didn't take it out of the box until I past that date I was out of warranty. The repair center wanted $70.00 for labor, which is more than 1/2 the cost of the machine. Because it freezes all the time we only use the VCR, which I already had, now I have an extra VCR. Whoopie. I hate JVC and will never buy their stuff. My next machine is comming from ebay for under a $100.00. Or from Sears and I will get the extended labor warranty because it's obvious you need it these days. Quality is just not important to manufacturers anymore. What a shame.

1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage, simply garbage!
I've had this unit for about 4 months now. I bought it so I could play some DVDs that I was burning on my computer. I still need a VCR for the off chance I might watch a video but I don't watch videos enough to buy a seperate VCR. This seemed like the perfect solution.
What a pile of crap. Freezes up ALL the time. CAN'T play DVDs that I burn. My little portable DVD player does! This hunk of junk has been nothing but problems. It is too late to take back so I will just toss it in the trash and get a better model.
About 200 bucks right into the garbage! Thanks JVC!

Amazon.com Product Description

The first-ever digital VHS recorder with an integrated HDTV receiver, JVC's HM-DT100 performs two functions in one, receiving lifelike high-definition video signals on an HD-compatible TV and then recording up to four hours of the signals for crisp, rich playback. The unit connects to HD-ready TVs and hi-res projection systems through its High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), which eliminates picture degradation by transferring information by digital means exclusively (no digital-to-analog or analog-to-digital conversion). For systems without HDMI inputs, the recorder connects via its iLink (ideal for digital camcorders), component-video, S-video, or composite outputs, which combine to give viewers a multitude of audio and video options. The device also features a 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS audio output that broadcasts high-quality audio soundtracks in multichannel surround sound.

Fortunately for users who still enjoy standard digital and analog programming, the HM-DT100 records those signals as well, including converting analog signals to digital recordings via the CODEC processor. Viewers with large videotape collections can ditch their old VCRs, as the unit is compatible with the traditional VHS format, while also playing far more modern D-Theater content. Recording lengths depend on the cassette type and content source, with top-end D-VHS cassettes offering up to four hours of HD recording and up to 35 hours of analog recording. Other compatible cassettes include S-VHS (doesn't record HD content), S-VHS ET, and Hi-Fi VHS (for multichannel analog sources). The system's multibrand remote control (with glowing keys) controls the VCR, TV, and cable box.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good product for the price.
This is my third JVC S-VHS VCR. Along with the other two it`s used everyday to record shows for weekend viewing. Using the S-VHS ET mode with Maxell HI-FI tapes, the picture and sound are excellent, even with repeated over recordings on the same tape. The only thing keeping me from giving it five stars is the lack of a panel display counter(as on previous models), and it`s HORRIBLE time keeping capabilities (time needs adjusting every month).

1-0 out of 5 stars VCR Died after 4 months - used twice
If you do buy this (or any JVC), make sure you use it a lot in the first month, so it'll still be under warranty if it dies. After that, maybe you'll be fine. Also, and this is probably true of all JVC VCR's, I found it very difficult to use, and I'm very gadget literate.

Funny thing is, I bought this just to transfer approx 10 tapes onto DVD (feeding VCR output into computer), and then probably wouldn't need it anymore. I used it twice, and then couldn't even get the VCR to turn on. Unfortunately, this was after 3 months of business travel, so warranty expired - out of luck. When I called JVC, they said I could take it to a service center for an hourly labor - yeah right!

I noticed the fuse inside was blown, but every time I replaced it, it would just blow again. I never liked JVC for other devices, but thought they might make good VCR's. Now I will never buy anything from them period.

4-0 out of 5 stars Digital Quality in analog
I read a lot of bad reviews on s-vhs machines. I think people who buy these (& return them) miss the point. If you're gonna use 6 for 10 dollar tapes, or worn, well used tapes over & over again on the slowest speed, don't buy a super-vhs machine, use a 200-250 line resolution cheap VCR. If you want DVD quality, over 400 lines resolution video, use good tapes, & the high speed. With a good tape, the slow speed looks better than ordinary vhs though. The machines will also record & play ordinary vhs in the best quality available.

Also, if you have a cheap, or small TV you won't notice much difference... buy a cheap VCR. If you have a high quality TV or widescreen (me-2 Wegas & a DLP projector) These machines are the most economical way to record DVD quality programming. Beware you get what you pay for, the cheapest s-vhs machines will not be as good as a more expensive one. If you got a Wega, something like it or widescreen, invest a little more on the VCR & tapes.

I find there is 1 fundimental flaw with all s-vhs machines though. They seem to need a "breaking in" period where they won't record a nice pic in the EP speed in s-vhs. You have to use the machine in SP or ordinary VHS when using EP until the heads wear a little. The pic is better after after the heads wear down a little in EP s-vhs.

As an electronics sevice tech, & a videophile, I'll never go back to ordinary VHS.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK quality at a good price.
I purchased 2 of these units after having excellent service with former JVC VCR`s. The picture and sound quality is excellent using the ET-SVHS mode with standard tapes. With the [low] price though,many features are missing. In order to view the counter you must use the on screen display,there is no counter incorporated into the clock. The counter will also not operate if you have the superimpose feature turned off,a very annoying feature that floods the screen with all kinds of info. VCR+ is also missing on this unit,and if you turn off the unit after programming,it won`t record if you forget to press the timer button(expected on a VCR from 1985,not 2002). For people who tape many TV shows to watch at a later date,I`d suggest spending the extra [money]for the HRS390 model,which has retained the clock display counter,and VCR+. If you only watch movies on an irregular basis,then this model will suit you fine. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

JVC's top-of-the-line FS-SD1000 executive microsystem contains a unique satellite-subwoofer pairing built on a radical speaker design for an expanded sound field and improved sound definition--the kind of sound that exceeds what you'd expect from the unit's size and shape. Housed inside cylindrical, pole-shaped aluminum enclosures are extremely slim speakers, which provide an extended high-frequency response and rich ambience. The pole shape reduces standing-wave generation for a smooth response, and reduced diffraction improves radiation efficiency.

The pole-shaped speakers make use of innovative materials and include high-performance magnets for more audio impact. The FS-SD1000 also boasts a 60-watt powered subwoofer for deep bass. The sub uses a 6.28-inch woofer, an edgewise-wound eight-layer voice coil, and volume control with phase switch.

Among the FS-SD1000's other attractions are CD-R/CD-RW playback, a motor-driven sliding CD door with CD illumination, an optical digital-audio output, 20-track programming, and a digital tuner with 15 AM and 30 FM presets. ... Read more

bougt it yesterday, easly assembly, great sound in small package. a must have for any one

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT System for a College Dorm !
I purchased this "all in one" system for my daughter's college dorm room. It plays CDs, receives AM/FM stations and has an auxiliary jack for her XM Satellite radio receiver. Compact, looks "kewl" with its see through cd turntable, and delivers enough sound to wake the dead.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Cure for Insomnia, Invisible Sound, and Over-Sleeping
Pros: Very compact, low-profile, with an excellent full range of sound, Sleek, Stylish, and Surprisingly Effective

Cons: Only one device input; no balance control; unidirectional speakers; Fragile; Pricey

The Bottom Line
An excellent bedroom CD sound system that has the potential to transform your sleep habits. Compact and Stylish, this mini-system produces a quality of sound above and beyond that of any competitor its' size.

I'm almost afraid to refer to this product as invisible, as one of the things that enticed me to purchase it was its' amazingly unique style. You may have first seen this stereo alongside the bed of Tom Cruise in "Vanilla Sky." The sound you heard in the theater is comparable to what I get at home out of the JVC FS-SD1000. Expensive? Yes. But worth every penny.

Taking up almost no space; the speakers are only a little over an inch in diameter, they appear more like modern works of art than useful utilities. When I turn it on, people frequently ask me where the sound is coming from, and they scarcely believe their eyes.

The large, yet also stylish, subwoofer creates deep bass tones that resonate throughout the area, while the minimalist speakers carry the higher tones to a real full and rich sound that is rare in flat speakers.

The body itself holds one CD, through a glass cover, that slides back and forth before rising up to allow access; all to the glimmering of a bright, flashing blue light. If you are not careful, it is possible to jam the cover and lose your investment. But for those who take care of their electronics, the subtlety of the movement is quite intriguing.

Easy to convert into a home theater system, and loud enough to fill a 2000 square foot house, this system has almost no flaws. It manages to play CD-R and CD-RW but does not have the capacity to play MP3CD. This is a minor flaw, but if it gets to you, purchase a cheap little MP3 player and plug it into the back. The remote is small and simple, but the translucent white plastic matches the system nicely, even though it will likely clash with the rest of your remotes.

Overall, it is a beautiful system with true and crisp sound. You have all the volume you need without losing all of your desk space. It may be fragile, but those who purchase expensive mini-systems such as these tend to take good care of them.

Impressive to both the eye and ear, the FS-SD 1000 is a great choice for those who want crisp, clean sound; and those who want to save room or just plain look cool.

4-0 out of 5 stars big sound, small system.
I've owned this system for two weeks now and so far it works fine. I wanted a system with a quality sound CD player in the smallest package I could get without giving up that quality. The sound is great. It sounds much better than the small shelf systems at the department store I tested. The difference isn't slight but clearly noticeable. The subwoofer is excellent. The volume is more than sufficient for a small or large room. The whole system appears solid and well built. The sound is very good and I'm glad I bought it, but how it sounds compared to other executive microsystems I don't know. The system is fairly simple to use and set up. One flaw was the radio. No stations came in on my system until I hooked up the external AM antenna. After that the reception was excellent. The FM I don't know since I haven't hooked it up. I don't use the FM stations in my area. If it works like the AM antenna it will be fine and clear. My AM antenna is set indoors and works well. Overall in sound for this size I give it a 9 of a rating from 1 to 10. The price is reasonable.

4-0 out of 5 stars High Quality Sound
The odd looking cylindrical speakers are visually appealing and create amazingly clean and rich sound when used in combination with the sub woofer. If you consider the price, the sound is really amazing.

I have only a few very minor complaints. The CD player/Amp/Receiver unit looks really slick and has very few buttons. This comes at the expense of being unable to easily adjust things like treble (need the remote for this). Actually, an equalizer would be nice addition to this as would a multi CD changer.

All things considered, this is a great unit. They clearly sacrificed extra bells and whistles to concentrate on the sound, which is what matters the most. ... Read more

JVC's Digital Direct Progressive Scan Output, quantified as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, providing higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. High-quality component-video outputs help minimize line scan and digital artifacts on compatible televisions, while composite- and S-video outputs assure compatibility with nearly any set.

A high-resolution onscreen graphical user interface (GUI) allows Windows-like interactive operation with tool bars superimposed onto the TV screen for simple point-and-click operation. Other convenience features include 1.5x playback with sound, 13-step high-quality zoom, and Screen Fill, which zooms in on a DVD image to eliminate letterbox "bars" on the TV screen. JVC's versatile VFP (Video Fine Processor) allows seven parameters of advanced picture adjustment, including gamma, brightness, contrast, color, tint, sharpness, and "Y delay." In addition to two factory presets (normal and cinema) there are two user-selectable memories.

A single set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each coaxial and optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.
