    JVC Everio GS-TD1 review

    By 18 May 2011

    Until now, Panasonic has been a lonely champion for homemade 3D, offering a range of camcorders compatible with its VW-CLT1 3D accessory lens. We looked at the brand’s HDC-SD900 recently and were suitably impressed, although like all the 3D capable...

    JVC GS-TD1 hands-on

    By 23 February 2011

    JVC launched what it calls the world's first consumer camcorder with full HD 3D at CES 2011, although Sony actually pipped it to the post and announced its HDR-TD10E first. However, JVC's 3D device is due to hit UK shops before Sony's so, in a way, ...

    JVC GZ-HM960 hands-on

    By 23 February 2011

    Hot on the heels of its full HD GS-TD1 camcorder, announced at CES 2011, JVC also introduced the GZ-HM960 - a more affordable model that can convert 2D footage to 3D. We were lucky enough to get our hands on JVC's latest gadget at the company's UK HQ....

    JVC GS-TD1 3D camcorder eyes-on

    By 7 January 2011

    When JVC launched their GS-TD1 3D camcorder claiming it as a world first, they obviously forgot to check what Sony were up to. We hunted the new model to have a look and found it lurking in a dark corner on their booth at CES 2011. Like the Sony HDR-TD10E...

    JVC Picsio GC-WP10 review

    By 2 November 2010

    JVC recently introduced the waterproof Picsio GC-WP10 alongside the decidedly non-water-friendly GC-FM2. We've already taken an in-depth look at the latter, so we thought it was about time that we got the underwater model in for a test as well. While...

    JVC Picsio GC-FM2 review

    By 21 October 2010

    Nearly every electronics manufacturer currently seems to be in a rush to release a flash memory storage HD video camcorder at near pocket money prices. They look near identical too, held vertically in the palm and used for filming like you would your...

    JVC Picsio GC-FM1 camcorder review

    By 9 March 2010

    Looking like an accessory from a P Diddy video - before the recession prompted an abrupt halt to the flouting of bling - JVC's oddly named Picsio is outwardly set to stun with its glitzy pearl-like finish that is more night club than camera club. It's...

    JVC HA-KD10 TinyPhones headphones review

    By 11 January 2010

    Some might question whether there should be a market for headphones aimed at the very young. The JVC TinyPhones are not recommended for anyone under 3 years, but some would say that 3 is still very young to be plugging in ignoring the rest of the world....

    JVC TH-R3 Home cinema system review

    By 25 October 2005

    JVC’s latest home cinema offering is the first, rather strangely, to include an RGB Scart. This attractive system has that vital input, which means that digibox users will be able to record their favourite programmes in all their RGB glory. This is...

    JVC XA-MP101W MP3 Player review

    By 29 September 2005

    With the MP3 market expanding faster than you can say boo to a ghost, more and more manufacturers are trying to get in on the action. Does JVC, the latest contender, have what it takes to beat the competition? Pocket-lint grabbed some headphones to find...

    JVC DR-MX1SEK Combi review

    By 10 May 2005

    Combination DVD and VHS players may seem a little 1980s, but don't let the yuppie passion for questionable combination products dissuade you entirely. Sure, when one half claps out, you might be left wishing you had separate units, but find a well made...

    JVC GRPD1EK Mini DV Cam review

    By 28 March 2005

    JVC, having produced one of the first ever mini consumer DV cameras, may have become a relative stranger to the DV camcorder market but is hoping that its new model the JVC GRPD1EK will put it back in the frame. Pitched between the domestic and professional...

    JVC Everio Digital Media camera review

    By 14 March 2005

    The concept of the digital media recording camera is a not a new one, although previously these have gone under a variety of names. In essence, “camera” does exactly what it says, and records direct onto a digital media format rather onto a tape....

    JVC MP-XV841 Mobile Mini note PC review

    By 13 December 2004

    After slogging down the high street, laden with presents for the angry masses, it’s nice to know that JVC are thinking of ever more impressive ways to lighten the load, in your laptop bag. Smaller than one of Santa’s little helpers, and more fun packed...
