      If you walk into any of the major high street electrical retailers than more often than not the first thing that will strike you is the plethora of television sets now available. If you went back a few years the television sets would often be of a similar size and offer similar if not identical features to one-another. The growing enthusiasm for digital television, as well as the growing DVD market has seen a dramatic increase in the number of widescreen televisions that are now available too. Indeed, in many retailers the number of widescreen sets can often out number the more traditional ‘square shape’ or 4:3 aspect ratio television sets. I had previously owned a Daewoo 21” television – the type of traditional shaped (or non-widescreen) television set that I had always been used to. After five or six years of sterling service however the television was starting to pack in. I had decided that enough was enough and it was finally time to get myself that widescreen set I had always promised myself! But why choose a widescreen set I hear you ask? Many of our television programmes are now shown in widescreen (or 16:9) format – similar to what you might see in a cinema. DVD movies are also predominantly shown in a widescreen format too. When played through a widescreen set, the picture is formatted correctly to fit inside the television screen – no more black borders (in most cases) will be visible and the picture will no longer seem so squashed. I’m a big DVD fan, so a Widescreen set seemed the obvious choice to me. Having a budget of around £500 I decided to take a trip into town and have a look at what was on offer for this price range. I already decided about the kind of features I was after: Plenty of Scart sockets on the back to allow connection of other equipment (e.g. DVD Player, Video etc.) A decent sized screen Clear picture Easy to use re
      mote control. With this in mind I had a look at the JVC model. This television set comes with a 28” display – a monster compared to my previous 21” television. It also comes with a flat screen. The screen is designed to reduce the amount of glare you may experience on the television – things such as light bouncing off the screen can often be distracting on a sunny day, but the flat screen design really does eliminate this to quite an extent. The most important thing of course on a television is the picture quality – a lot of this will depend on the input going to the television of course, but when used in conjunction with my DVD player and Sky Digibox the picture is about as perfect as you could hope for. Colours come across as clear and sharp – especially flesh-tones that can often be a problem for many televisions of this size. What about connections? Well for a start there are three scart connections on the back of the set, along with a series of composite inputs on the front (handy for connecting a camcorder to the television for example. The remote that is supplied with the set is nice and simple to use too – the buttons and their purpose are clearly defined and allow for navigation through the various set-up options with ease. What about those set-up options? It can be quite daunting at first, there really are a load of picture options to choose from. I have my television set to ‘Auto’ mode – this means that it adjust the size of the displayed screen depending on the signal being sent to it via the DVD player or the Sky box , you can if you wish however force the set to fill the screen with the whole picture, or alternatively squash it down to give a 4:3 picture (as seen on traditional sets) So far so good – the unit is very easy to set up thanks to the ‘automatic install’ system and the picture is superb – are there
      any downsides to this set? Well yes sadly, there is. The sound from the speakers inside the set isn’t the greatest I have to say. Sounding tinny and lacklustre I found it very disappointing. Luckily however I have a amplifier that I use instead. That coupled with the television really does enhance the whole ‘home-cinema’ feel. At £500 there are plenty of other models to choose from, but the JVC does a great job for me – and many independent reviews in magazines back my thoughts up. In my opinion if you are after a new set you could do a lot worse than consid
