Summary: Don't buy this TV for power outages because the tuner is so insensitive. I live 23 miles from an antenna farm with good signal strength. I could get no stations with the set antenna and nothing with a PowerHD 100 amplified antenna PowerQ POWERHD-100 Indoor Portable Pop-Up Digital HDTV Antenna - Get FREE TV Broadcasts! . Using an amplified attic antenna, I could only get half of the stations that I could pick up with a new HD TV or a converter box.
Summary: This review is not complete and nor is it fair as I could not get a signal in the woods where I live. Maybe it would work in a metro area or a developed suburb but not in my neck of the woods. Unfortunately I had to return this well-priced portable because no one could help me figure out why I could not get a signal. End of story!
Summary: I bought this for my mom who lives in the Florida panhandle. She might need it for hurricanes and such. It would not pick up ANYTHING with it's own antenna. Being a rural area it was expected to have limited number of channels that it could pick up, but it couldn't even pick up anything for a TV transmitter that is only 9.2 miles away! However, taking with me back to Birmingham it picks up multiple channels there.
Summary: For a person relatively competent with electronic devices, I'm amazed that this one is a puzzler. Haven't figured out how to make it work yet. Have gotten some shadowy images is all. May have something to do with available reception. Dunno. Make sure you've got someone to fiddle with it with you before you buy. There's other ways to see really small-screen TV. I put it back in its box. I'll try it again sometime.
Summary: A great 7" LCD that works fine with cable, but poor antenna reception (to be expected). I use it as an external LCD monitor for video recording with an HD camcorder and it's terrific in this role because it provides a 16:9 aspect ratio screen for HD (High Def) recorders, but it can also work with SD (Standard Def) too. If you want to spend $350 or more for for an external LCD video monitor go ahead, but for less than $80 this little gem is a steal!
Pros: Clear Picture, Easily Portable, Good Sound, Great Value
Summary: Shipping was quick and assembly easy picture very good. we had old bulky portable tv, this gives me more space! Now that I have more space thinking of gettinf bigger one and put this one close to treadmill!!!
