XV-BP11 supports 1080p/24 playback of Blu-ray discs
I'm not really sure why JVC felt the need to release the XV-BP11 when the original XV-BP1 has more functionality and an MSRP that's only $30 more. Yes, this model can deliver the higher-quality video and audio that are the crux of the Blu-ray format; however, there are plenty of other budget models that offer more features for the same price as the XV-BP11. If your heart is set on a JVC Blu-ray model, go with the XV-BP1 instead.
This thing will play almost any DVD I throw at it. I actually bought this to play VHS tapes that I have though. I have not tried to record anything with it yet. It does very well with compressed DVD avi files. It produces a cleaner picture that my Panasonic Player. I recommend it and this seller !!!!
Limited format support. clunky VCR performance
The unit as received seems decent. operating the VCR reveals a lot to be wanting. the accepting and reading of the tape is not stellar fast, nor is it mechanically smooth or relatively quiet. Remote is avg. the biggest disappointment is in the inputs and the DVD format support. No coax input. just mere disc component YBR output and some share VCR/DVD composite outputs.
playing a disc like video VCD or the likes will not be recognized, after what appears to be forever media-read process.
Lots of issues
IMPORTANT...if you buy this item and you ship it to use in Canada forget about the warranty (1 year parts and labour)!!!
Interface is not easy to use with multiple steps to get to some of the important functions etc...very important, missing to show the minutes of the titles you want to dub or the total you selected.
I dubbed on one Blu-Ray and after that cannot do it anymore...think I need to repair it already after 6 months (used only few times for dubbing on DVD-R).
Easy to navigate
JVC's new deck packs a ton of professional features at an affordable price. The SR-HD1500 would make a great addition to production houses, schools, houses of worship or any business that requires quick dubs of Blu-ray or DVD content. For those who plan to cross over into the Blu-ray world, this deck is ideal. Duplication is simple, the menu layout is straight-forward, the deck is versatile. You won't find a deck at a similar price with this many bells and whistles on the market right now.
