Is this JVC useful as an HDV monitor

Can this monitor be used in-studio to accurately assess color and other picture qualities shot in HDV (I'm using the A1)?

the problem is this monitor is 4:3 ratio and only 10 inches.
it means if you display a 16:9 ratio picture, you will get a really small picture.
that would not hurt if the monitor was really hires, but unfortunately, its specs are only 300 lines.
and if the price is ok (less than 700$) , you get only composite video as input (HD is at minimum component), and if you look at the price of the optional SDI card, (1600$) , the optional component card must be expensive too.
so, the answer is, no this monitor is useless for HDV.

Since i got 3 of them, i am probably not an objective advisor.
for the price, this is a great screen, big picture , many inputs.
for video, i would say it is like all LCD screen, low to average quality (i mean it is really difficult to find an LCD screen you could accept as reference display)
As field monitor i would choose something smaller or bigger (like a 32" LCD TV) depends the use you have for it. Personally, i prefer small device for portability.
For instance, i would prefer to use a laptop with some capture software to display a decent picture (there is more control from windows than from the setup of the screen), while giving some freedom (can operate on battery) and features (monitornig,capturing, measuring feature like DVRack can give, teleprompter etc....)

i do not know the price, but something like this would be very nice
