    I have been reading up as much I can to educate myself and came across this tv for a decent price.

    Opinions on this set positive and negative would be helpful.

    Size of tv is not a major issue(not screen size) and spending 5K and up isnt really appealing to me.

    Only you can determine if the set is worth that kind of money. There's no way in hell I'd ever spend so much money on a TV. I have a front projector and it's fantastic. You can get a HD projector for less than half that amount, and have at least a 100" screen. We watch all DVD's on it and occasional HDTV. For BS shows we watch a 32" set. You'd be shocked at the image quality you can get with a projector for about $1,000.

    I've seen those sets and they do have quite a good picture with a good source. My gripe with JVC is their less than stellar warranty service. I'd suggest going on the web site, looking up their authorized warranty service providers and then giving those technicians a call and ask if they will service the set in your home should anything go wrong. Also, it would be worth asking if they have had good or bad experiences repairing (and/or getting parts) these units.

    I will be watching both movies and tv. I will be watching football on sundays and like my room open and bright in the daytime, a projector is out for that reason. I have had a 60 inch for the past 6 years, and like the big screen. The 70 inch jvc can be had for 4k delivered, I was just looking for general comments about these particular jvc's before I get serious about a new tv in the next few months. I dont think I can even get to look at one of these in my area as i dont think anyone is carrying the 70 inch.

    I am not sure i would want to use the smaller version of this tv as a basis on which to judge the picture.

    the jvc dila's have really nice pictures. very very smooth image, with really nice colors.

    my only concern is the lack of lcos sets on the market. i just don't feel the technology has been perfected yet (i hear they're a nightmare to manufacture), so i'm worried that they won't be around long-term.

    again, the sets that make it are nice, but i just don't feel comfortable with the technology ... not yet.
