"kd-avx77 display goes bad after taking great care of it"1.0 starson by BartenderTim
Pros: It has a full range of dynamic colors and backgrounds that you can do yourself. The dvd player was also a nice touch.
Cons: All the pros about this go out the window when the display goes bad after 18 months. My kd-avx77 display is broken, which means no telling what buttons you push because THE WHOLE SCREEN IS TOUCH!!!!
Summary: My display went black 2 days ago without any warning. It worked Saturday just fine, and then Sunday, it was never to be seen again. I was hesitant about buying anything JVC to begin with, but I was drawn in by the full touch screen display. It is beautiful when it works, however I wondered if it was durable. As this was a brand new unit, nobody had really bought it and tested this. I went for it and wasted $500 on this black box that sits in my dash now. The JVC representative told me he can't look up anything but a manual that I received with my head unit. He instead gives me a number to a service center in my area. To get them to look at it, I have to remove my stereo for atleast 3 weeks while they attend to it. For $500 you would think that some responsibility would be had by the company producing this "top of the line" head unit. When I say I took care of this unit, I TOOK CARE OF IT. It's the second most expensive thing in my car. Maybe taking the face plate off too much was the problem. It never had water on it, never dropped, never hit hard on accident, never mishandled in any way. The screen still has no scratches on it. I should have bought a $200 Pioneer with some real buttons and I probably wouldn't have any problems today. For those of you looking to make an impression inside your car with this unit, look elsewhere. I'm sure there are more durable and good looking units out there for the money. I could have used the extra $300 for something that was worth the money.
