Reasonably Priced

One JVC LT-32C655 reviewer considered that this TV was good value for money. Polaris Borealis said “OK for the price”.


Audio

Acceptable Noise Level

One customer said in their reviews that the product was quiet. Polaris Borealis said on Amazon this month “It's still a little quiet” in their JVC LT-32C655 review.


Smart TV

Poor Smart TV Features

One person who bought the product wrote that it was not good for watching on demand TV. Polaris Borealis wrote in their review this year “Smart functions are basically limited to Netflix, iPlayer and YouTube”.

Poor Connectivity

One JVC LT-32C655 reviewer said in their reviews that it was not wifi compatible. In October Polaris Borealis rated the product 60 out of 100 and wrote in their review of the JVC LT-32C655 on Amazon “Needs a Chromecast to work well, although this may not work without extender hdmi cables based on the WiFi dongle limitation”.

Supports Smart TV

The LT-32C655 supports Smart TV, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions that have been around for more than two years do not support Smart TV.

Design

Not Robust

One JVC LT-32C655 reviewer who bought the JVC LT-32C655 reckoned that it was not well made. Polaris Borealis wrote on Amazon “I hope the dvd player works well, although packaging comes with warnings about how fragile it is” in their review of the JVC LT-32C655.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The JVC LT-32C655 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec TVs that are a similar age to this television also do not have a built-in camera.

Energy

Running Costs Are Average

This JVC television has an energy efficiency classification of A. Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the LT-32C655 is £66, which is typical compared to the other 582 TVs that have been available for more than two years.


Weight & Dimensions

Good Size

One person reckoned that this TV was a good weight. Polaris Borealis wrote on Amazon “Very light in weight, would be easy to wall-mount if it wasn't for the main connections coming straight out on the back of the unit” but despite that they only scored it 3 stars.

Very Thick

Across all the TVs of a similar spec and age to this TV the depths range from 4.3mm to 100mm. When compared to other televisions of this type and age that we have checked the depth of, the LT-32C655's depth of 97 millimeters is one of the thickest.

We compared this TV to all the other 97mm thick TVs and we think because of its better review score, the JVC LT-32C650 (£179.95) is also worth considering.

If you would consider a TV with a thicker depth then you might want to look at the Changhong EF22H888 (£170.04) (85.5mm and higher rated), or the Seiki SE32HY01 (£179.99) (86mm and higher rated).

Not 3D

The JVC LT-32C655 is not 3D. Most of the other small display diagonal televisions that have been available for more than two years are also not 3D.

TVs which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the C24115, or the C24EFF (£246.94) both from Cello or the Toshiba 32W3455 (£149).

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

supports Wi-Fi

The LT-32C655 supports Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other TVs of a similar type and age to this television which do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs which support Wi-Fi and we think because of their better review scores, the Samsung T32E390 (£179.99), the Seiki SE32HO03 (£179.99), and the JVC LT-32C650 (£179.95) are also worth considering.
