Not compatible with Google play JVC LT-50N7115A
Tv pic is great,
Size and design are great, but I'm gonna jump to negatives, as it's why I'm here ...
JVC advertisers this TV as a smart TV and is apparently compatible with Google Play. This WAS true years ago however JVC stopped releasing updates for this models software, which In turn means many google play apps are no longer compatible or updated.
The apps pre-installed is what your stuck with, and due to lack of updates they don't run smoothly.
The apps are also for countries outside of Australian services that we can't even access or ...

Way beyond expectations
I did plenty of research before buying. And most of the people complaining are either talking about a different model or don’t really understand how to use it. screen has good blacks as expected for QLED at $499AUD can’t go wrong. Android 9 easy navigation, tv streaming apps, netflix, stan, prime just works so well. Have Plex and Kodi installed and have added Apps to allow Alexa to work. Have smart phone apps for remote. Just really happy with it. Sound is a bit naff. Use an amp or a bar.

Purchased in July 2016 at The Good Guys Online store for $1,000.00.
Bought from big W over a year ago. When using Xbox and exiting an app the screen goes permanently black and turning it off and then on again doesn't fix it. You have to pull the power cord out for it to work properly again. That is annoying weak for a tv made in this day and age. They are not what they used to be. I'd just get a cheaper brand because the expensive ones are not as good anymore and not worth the money. LG still has pixel problems after owning one for 6 years which is on par with a tcl, so go figure. It's true that everything is not as good anymore, not only just TVs.

Great picture but no usable audio outputs
this set has a beautiful picture, vibrant colour. The internal speakers are poor and tinny even with bass all the way up and treble adjusted.
The 3x HDMI ports and 1x RCA A/V allows for plenty of connections & works fine on Chromecast and popular STBs. There's only a digital coax out which I couldn't get working with my AVR and no RCA audio out, and no fibre digital output. In fact, my 7 year old Panasonic 42" LCD runs circles around this TV in connection provision and internal sound. The menu is good, but FTA station info is very small.

Good TV but has been false advertised
JVC advertises this TV as a smart TV with Netflix and Youtube, but when you try and watch them after 20 minutes of watching something either the picture freezes and the dialogue continues or the volume stops working completely and the image continues. When i called JVC about this problem, they said that you need an external media streaming device connected through the HDMI port in order to watch media streaming apps. Which in my opinion makes this no longer a smart TV its just an ordinary TV which is able to connect to WIFI. before i actually m...ade my TV a "smart TV" (connecting it to WIFI) i had my XBOX 1S connected to it and was watching Netflix like that - some how from just doing that it was using on average 2000GB a day sometimes more. So overall as a TV its a very good a TV, but would probably benefit a bit more from better sound/sound bar, but as a SMART TV its useless and JVC false advertises it.

You can connect a mouse
I see one review complains about the remote but remotes are similar with all tvs I have Sony55 smart tv as well as a JVC 55 and using the remote is similar. With the JVC i connected a wireless mouse and it works fine and is easy when using netflix to select options. I didn't find the Sony as easy.
This is a good TV with a remote control that is absolute rubbish. If you're using it as a "smart TV" then the remote control is totally inadequate and makes the simplest of tasks an total nightmare. With so many buttons on the remote control, you would think that they would provide some to do the job properly when trying to select things on screen. The four directional keys are so clunky, they belong in the 1960s
For the price , Excellent T.v
It was very cheap , i have the 48 inch version. I am very happy with it though , the picture is amazing for a cheaper T.v and the sound is quite good too. looks quite nice has lots of imputs and outputs. I would recommend to anyone and apparently i'm fussy so they tell me .
Great price and picture for a big 55" TV with 4k
Purchased this 55" TV from Big W. I have to admit I am very surprised at how good this $650 TV is. After reading several negative reviews on the other cheaper TVs, I decided on JVC because at least I have heard of this brand. The TV setup was fine. The best function of the TV is how good it connects to my Yamaha sound bar. This connection is via a HDMI cable and it works perfectly and much better than my LG smartTV (which used an optical cable). There is no fiddling around and the TV remote automatically controls the volume. It is very clever. ...The picture is perfect on shows that are using 4k or similar, but obviously not clear on older shows, budget commercials and lower quality tv shows. The only weird thing about the TV is the huge square light at the bottom left hand corner. "Green" light when on and "red" light when off. It is HUGE, tacky and unattractive. It looks like a part from the 1970's. JVC, what were you thinking? I might cover it up with black electricity tape. PS: The model I purchased does not have smart tv.
Never had an issue with this TV. Everyone complaining about the fuzzy picture has no idea how 4K works. The tv is designed to show programs in 4k HD, so when you are watching free to air SD the picture will be fuzzy.
Xbox and PS games look amazing on it as do the HD Foxtel channels. Well worth the money in my opinion. For a cheap tv, I am impressed.
Questions & Answers
Tv is great, except for when it lags out. The sound will keep playing but the picture pauses for 10-20 seconds then jumps ahead. Pretty annoying having to skip back everytime you watch a movie.
im debating whether to buy a jvc 55” this model (LT-55N547A)
alot of people have complained about the poor sound system. could that be fixed with a separate sound bar?
and more have wrote about complications happening while using the actual tv channels and apps on it. if i were to use this tv only for my playstation to get plugged in and used, would i still have this problem?
JVC (japan victor company) are not what they used to be. The license was acquired by Shenzhen MTC, a Chinese TV company. I would avoid at all costs if i were you. I know people who have bought Polaroid and TCL TV's that are superior, i had a TCL previously that was very good for the money and picture quality was better...I bought a JVC because i thought they were a good Japanese brand and because it was a bit more expensive and usually the more you pay the better the product, but with JVC that is not the case anymore. To put it bluntly they are crap. Most of the time when i exit a game or an app on on my xbox the screen goes black and i have to pull the power cord out to totally reset the power on the TV because turning it off with the remote doesnt fix it. Problems like that shouldnt exist for a TV in 2020 or with a TV period. I have never had a problem like that before and for that problem to be with a JVC just proves how crap and poorly made they are these days, i would avoid. The brands that i personally recommend are LG or Samsung. South Korean technology does not go backwards and i have been to South Korea and experienced how technologically advanced they are, makes Australia look like the dark ages.
I have a jvc 55''curve tv but lost the user guide .I want to know how to use its hardware keys at its back especially the select/enter key. whenever I switch it on it starts with a small screen but want to learn how to enlarge it without remote control?
