I am pleased with my purchase of the 42" JVC LCD TV. I put it in my bedroom on the wall over a fireplace. It comes with its own base stand for sitting it on a flat surface. However, I feel that, it could be easily knocked over as it is so large and thin. So, if you have small children or pets, consider where you can locate it so that it is not susceptible to being accidentally bumped into.Or wall- mount it. (To wall mount, you must order a wall mount separately--200mm x 200mm--) Although soon after ordering The JVC online, I noticed some smart TVs in the same size in a slightly higher price-range, but this JVC has a huge number of features that would make it comparable to a smart TV such as: PC mode, flash drive and USB ports, so I'm OK with that. The one advantage I saw with the smart-TVs was that most had a 120HZ refresh rate and this TV has a 60HZ refresh rate. This should only be an issue if you are heavily into fast motion uses. i.e., gaming and some sports.
The remote control is overwhelming for me. I will have to study it to get full understanding of all of this TV's functions, but I am not a techie. All said, I can watch the TV and do all that I want to do after just a short orientation to the remote.
In summary, the picture is clear and the color vibrant. I am totally satisfied. It is a handsome set, and has good sound quality although I haven't used all of the sound choice options yet. I do recommend this TV as a good value.
