  • The JVC DLA-HD250 Drops D-ILA Projectors To A Lower Pricepoint

    CEDIA, the tradeshow for AV nerds, is currently rocking in Atlanta and JVC took the stage to announce its newest D-ILA projector. Generally, anything that touts D-ILA carries a high price tag.

  • Testing out the JVC Everio GZ-HM1SU (in the middle of Jamaica)

    Did you know that I’ve had the JVC Everio GZ-HM1SU in my possession for about a month now? Kinda hard to know that seeing as though I’ve never written about it. We’re going to fix that right now. And while we’re at it, let’s kill two birds with one stone. A friend of mine invited me to Jamaica last week—he’s some sort of big shot down there, it… Read More

  • This new JVC "crystal" camcorder is for women only

    It’s not the first “women-only” camcorder out there, but JVC’s Everio GZ-HM350 (announced [JP] today) has surely the best specs.

  • The HD JVC Everio GZ-HM550 lets smartphones control functions via Bluetooth

    The JVC GZ-HM550 brings a new set of standards to the table. It isn’t the 1920 x 1080 recording or 9 MP stills. Nor is it the 32GB internal flash memory with an SD/SDHC card slot playing backup or even the Konica Minolta HD lens. Nope, it’s the novel Bluetooth function that might make a full size camcorder relevant again in a smartphone world. Read More

  • Review: JVC GZ-HM340 compact HD camcorder

    Short version: An excellent camcorder with few faults except one big, fat, glaring one: it only records in 1080i. What year is this again? Read More

  • The JVC GZ-HM340 camcorder offers HD recording for only $499

    High-definition camcorders are constantly falling in price and we like it. The new JVC GZ-HM340 carries a $499 MSRP but yet offers a lot of what we look for in an HD cam. The model sports image stabilization on a 20x Konica Minolta HD zoom lens, along with storing the video to either a SD/SDHC card or its internal 16GB flash memory. But what, there’s more! Read More

  • HA-FX700: JVC's wooden (and pricey) earphones

    About a year ago, JVC started selling headphones with wooden housing in Japan, claiming the superior sound quality they bring justify the high price ($730).

  • The JVC XS-SR3 iPod speaker dock plays audio via a series of tubes

    JVC is still at the iPod speaker dock game but at least its latest offering bucks the norm and is actually different. Bonus points for that. The XS-SR3 features tubular speakers that are supposed to help simulate surround sound. The dock also holds the iDevice either vertically or horizontally, just like the B&W Zeppelin Mini I reviewed previously. But unlike that iPod speaker dock, this… Read More

  • JVC has two more sound bars from you to pick from: TH-BA3 and TH-BS7

    Didn’t Nickelodeon used to give away JVC boomboxes and whatnot on its game shows back in the day? (I’m primarily talking to twenty-somethings here, yes.) Imagine you were a contestant on Double Dare, and you manage to find the flag inside the big nose filled with goo, and you win this, the TH-BA3. It’s a sound bar, which are a heck of a lot easier to incorporate into a… Read More

  • 270g: JVC announces world's lightest and smallest HDD camcorder

    JVC Japan announced three new interesting camcorders just last week, but the fresh Everio model the company unveiled today in Tokyo is actually even cooler.

  • VHS lives: JVC announces VHS/DVD/Blu-ray recorder for Japan

    It seems VHS will never die, and this is generally welcome, as a lot of good movies aren’t still available on optical discs. In summer 2008, Panasonic released a VHS/Blu-ray combo, followed by Sharp’s Aquos BD-HDV22 that was pretty much the same thing. And today, over one year later, JVC anounced the DR-BH250 [JP], which is a VHS recorder, Blu-Ray Recorder and 250GB HDD rolled… Read More
