TV design presentation JVC LT-55C870

Sober but in line with current trends. JVC has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The design of the JVC LT-55C870 is largely inspired by the other models in the U850 series.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
The LT-55C870 is simply flat.
With a size of 55 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

LT-55C870 from JVC – The screen

The JVC has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new model, JVC confirms one of its technological choices. Although of lower quality, an Edge LED Edge-LED is used for this TV.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. Which is already above the average resolution of the range.
With a screen size of 55 inches, this LT-55C870 is positioned in the segment of large models. Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, the television’s fluidity is at the top of its range.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Ultra HD 4K quality picture .
Thus, the JVC LT-55C870 allows you to watch everyday movies and videos without necessarily wanting it to be a home theater level. It’s a decent mid-range.

LT-55C870 from JVC – The sound

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers.
