    Not much more than a small box

    This television has very limited usefulness. I think it might be useful for a car/camper environment where the only thing you would do is watch broadcast television in a tent under 12-volt power. As a household small television, it is far less useful. It does not receive any source besides HD broadcast. There is no way to connect to cable television signal. And the remote is nearly useless i nthat it is tiny, fragile, and has only rudimentary functionality. The manual is one of the worst I have ever seen and is written in pseudo-english. Pluses: 12-Volt power, a very nice portable HD antenna and HD tuner that receives a good signal. Minuses: Remote is useless and fragile, Does not support Cable TV signal, Horrible manual, tiny screen (smaller than described).

    Very nice small TV

    An excellent small TV. The picture is quite clear and large enough to see across a small room. The remote has nice features and the initial set up is easy. The telescoping antenna initially attached is inadequate but a much more substantial one with a long cord was included. The better antenna looks a little unsightly as the cord is attached coming out of the top ot the TV but it does a great job. You would think the manufacturer who makes boom boxes could have done a little better with the sound quality but it is not too bad. Overall, the TV's appearance is very nice and, as a whole, the TV is better than I expected...

    Not cable-ready

    Since I could neither receive over the air (OTA) channels through the antenna that came with the set nor attach it to our cable coax, I never had a chance to see how the picture and sound quality would have been. The fact that it is not cable ready should clearly have been disclosed in the BB product description. Don't buy this TV unless you live in an area where the OTA signals are VERY strong and even then I'd have doubts -- I live in a major metro area so should have been able to receive an OTA signal (and can receive them on other sets with rabbit ears).

    Ltd. Channels

    Wanted a digital OTA portable for hurricanes/power outages, but this one required an awkward long-lined antenna for amplification of signal. Didn't have much luck in the greater Houston area; could only get espanol/religious channels--wanted local networks that would have weather. Telescoping/screw-on antenna did nothing for picking up any channels here. Also, no battery operation, which I thought it had. Returned it, but would have kept if better signal in my area/battery option.

    My trucker boyfriend is very satisfied with this little tv. It does have 2 antenna, one is worthless, the other is the charm. He gets channels everywhere he goes, some places more than others. The bigger the city/area, of course, the most channels he gets. Another thing he was very pleased with was the cigarette lighter adapter, for power, which I didnt think it came with....so that saved money too, not having to buy a power inverter.

    great for kitchen

    I wanted small tv for kitchen to watch while cooking. Love that speakers are on front and face you, sound is great. Reception was great with provided antenna and picture size is perfect. Size doesn't interfere with counter space and didn't have to attach it to anything. It can also go with in the car even though don't need it to, nice feature. Have had it about a month and can't find anything bad to say about it. Price was reasonable.

    This TV is pretty cool. When I first got it I put one of the antennas on and did a channel scan but only got two or three channels. Then I put the other antenna on it and did a channel scan and I got channels I didn't even know existed. I don't know if it's just in my area or not but one of the antennas is better than the other. Overall it's a great TV. I bought this TV for my dad, he really likes it so far so if he's happy I'm happy

    Purchased TV in last 2 weeks. Order was received within a few days. This TV is great for small area. At first disappointed because telescoping antenna which came with TV did not work. Had no picture, no sound. But tried other antenna which is for use in car and picture is clear and sharp and sound is good. I have been using it for past week and a half. So far, no problems.

    I purchase this product as a gift for my sister, however, because it is so small, I wanted to check it out to make sure that she would be happy with it. The picture and sound is great, but I was unable to get all of the basic channels for my area. I can either get UHF channels and not the VHF or vice versa. Works well with DVD player or video games.

    This TV was real simple to set up. It took just a few min. and I was watching over air TV. I really wish it came with more video inputs, but wasn't needed for this purchase. I say anyone looking for a small TV to watch over the air morning news in the bathroom while your getting ready for work, this is a great TV for you.

    I wish it would have worked out, but here in L.A. I need also channels 7-13. I tried over and over and even with a Lasonic tech on the line but no dice. Since that didn't serve my purpose, I returned it to Best Buy for full refund. They were very good about that.

    This TV was to replace a small analog TV in a doenstairs bathroom. No channels were found with the screw on antenna provided with the TV. I had to attach a large set of digital rabbit ears to get any channels, and i don't get them all.

    You can scan all day and not get a clear channel. I bought the TV so that I had a method to watch the weather in the case of a hurricane. But the quality of this TV is very poor.
