Although I'm having my set swapped out this week because of a geometry problem that I've not been able to cure through the service menus, I'd recommend the current JVC DIST sets without hesitation.
The picture is gobsmacking on DVD and good quality DTV input - like any TV, crappy low-bitrate channels don't look good.
Like any other quality TV, you will need to spend some time getting it set up. Thankfully the 3 picture modes are user-customisable - I'm currently using slightly different settings for DVD via component than I amfor my Xbox, DTT box & VCR via SCART.
I have that TV and in general I'm very happy with it.
Like any other CRT it has its + and its - points. Depending on what you watch most it can be a fantastic choice or a so-so one.
If you mainly watch DVD or have a HCPC go get it right now as its one of the very best (if not the best), but if you watch lots of broadcast, analogue or digital, I'd check it personally first, it is not kind on low quality sources and other tellys may give you better results.
If you have further questions don't hesitate to ask.
