Summary: I have been pleased with this television and feel that it was a great purchase for the price. The picture is very crisp. As other reviewers have noted, the volume isn't great. I hooked this TV up to my old surround sound system and it works great. So the volume hasn't been an issue, but I can see where it could be a problem without the system, especially if you have a lot of background noise to overcome.
Summary: I wanted one with speakers on front as I'm not planning on using any additional audio - it works great and the picture is sharp and clean. Portable just means the stand folds, but it's light and easy to move for sure.
Summary: we bought this TV a month ago and we love it. its quality is awesome, and i love the design. sound is a bit weak and we need to increase the volume to top 75% area when there is a little noise.
Summary: i was looking for a small good looking flat screen tv to replace the one i had for 8 years. this was perfect. great picture quality (tho i don't have hdtv so would have to defer to those who do on that). good looking and simple design. simple installation, 10 minutes and i was watching happily. quick delivery even with standard shipping. for the price i was looking for, i couldn't be more satisfied.
