Bottom Line:   
Good deal for progressive scan and mp3 player I THOUGHT! After slightly over a year of use, takes about 1 minute to read a BRAND NEW cd, after 5 - 10 minutes of play that cd turns into LOUD buzzing as if dvd player is frying. Will not even attempt to play a dvd, just says NO DISC as soon as it is loaded. The player has been in one spot and never moved, never even touched except to hit play buttons.

Bottom Line:   
I have had this for over a year now, and it is my first DVD player. I am somewhat pleased with it, not ecststatic, tho. I don't have an HDTV so the progressive scan feature means nuthin, but it was a criteria to purchase due to near future upgrade.
Few things: The picture and sound quality are superb. I have looked at the same DVDs with other players: Sony, specifically, DVP NS 300V and some other Sony models and this is much better.
But, sometimes it gets a little 'confused' when going to and from film and menu: cursor appears on frozen movie still, no cursor appears, screen saver appears with cursor... which ain't good!
And finally it doesn't read CDs all taht well it's like 50/50 on the CD reading I haev to say. I have a separate CD player, my trusty Marantz.

Bottom Line:   
I feel the color and looks are nice. The features for the price are a deal in getting progressive scan feature. If you have an A/V receiver with Dolby and DTS, the Dolby signal pass thru is all you need. JVC made the right choices in features for a resonably priced progressive scan capable DVD. If you understand this is not top of the line progressive scan DVD with Dolby and discrete 6 channel output for the dollars you are saving, you can appreceiate the unit for what it is. DVD playback has been excellant to me, but this is a bedroom second DVD player and not using the progressive scan feature yet.

Bottom Line:   
Wow. I can't believe I got a progressive scan, JVC brand player for $169.00. I recently purchased a Zenith 36 inch HDTV monitor and was ready to upgrade to progressive scan. It looks great on the few DVDs that I have tested. It also automatically senses the type of progressive mode to default to.

It also plays everything, but this is not a real big attraction for me as I only listen to mp3s on my laptop or on portable hardware.

I think the gold is cool-looking to and the on-screen menu is fairly intuitive.r
