Sad but true

Diane G., Newegg
4 June 2010
  • Summary: bottom line, not a good purchase until they engineer better reception. My husband is an electrical engineer and he said return it.
  • Pros: compact and rechargeable, works nicely with cable. Newegg was very quick to ship and has excellent communications.
  • Cons: We are returning the unit because the internal antenna with the extension mounted at the top of the unit is useless. Going through the auto scan it picked up no stations/signals. We tried both inside and out of our home in a suburb of a decent size city. The antenna that has a magnetic mount pick...

A Must for Your Emergency Kit

Dawn H., Newegg
26 May 2010
  • Summary: If you don't have a backup generator, this is a must during a storm or a brownout.
  • Pros: Ease of operation. Purchased for a good price. Color and audio are fine. Worked well during the last power outages. Digital station reception very good.
  • Cons: Does not offer regular battery alternative as a power source. An optional AA external battery pack would be a plus. No carrying case.

You get what you pay for...

Scott W., Newegg
24 May 2010
  • Summary: I finally decided to replace an old Radio Shack handheld TV that I used during storms (I live in "Tornado Alley") It seemed to take forever to get some digital handheld TVs on the market. I'd say skip this one. It's bigger than I thought it would be, and tuning is a pain.
  • Pros: Super cheap price. Simple operation.
  • Cons: Bad reception, even with external ant. Low resolution screen. Non replacable batteries. Low run time on included batteries. No manual tuning. Big, too big for real handheld.

So good I bought two!

Anonymous, Newegg
8 April 2010
  • Summary: I keep one in the kitchen and the second one is in my 4x4 and used for camping and fishing trips. Both units have the same clear picture and are built well. They came with all the accessories I could need.
  • Pros: I was impressed with it's picture, which was clear and crisp, and it's small size after seeing one in use at a gun show last Fall. I finally found one a few weeks later, but paid nearly twice as much as the one I bought on a Shell Shocker deal here at NuevoHuevo. Auto-tune found all the OTA chann...
  • Cons: No cons except the possibility the teeny-tiny remote might get misplaced easily. The remote actually fits in the watch pocket of my Levi's!

Poor Reception

Steven O., Newegg
13 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this for my father for a Christmas present in 2008, when all the channels switched to digital, when his old analog version would not longer be useful. At that time there were only one or two digitial tv's on the market. I paid $180 back then for this. Glad to see the price has came down.
  • Pros: Light weight, and has a clear picture on channels that it does get.
  • Cons: This tv does not get good reception at all. I could only get one or two channels . Tried everything to get better reception, but it just does not work.

Quad duty

Greg J., Newegg
12 March 2010
  • Summary: Bought this for both a security camera monitor and emergency TV when needed (hurricane season) but it also works well as an external monitor for my camcorder. I was worried that with all day use the battery would overcharge and get hot but it only charges from the wall plug when the TV is off.
  • Pros: Even when plugged in it does not charge battery while the TV is turned on.
  • Cons: Newegg's price went way down after my purchase. No carry case included. Manual and documentation unclear on battery charging procedures. For optimum battery life this is critical information. BEFORE USING for the first time plug it in and leave it OFF for at least 8 hours for proper charge.
