Nice sharp widescreen picture and multi power choices

 

Great for over the air broadcast reception of HD programming and with versatility with RCA cables and earphone miniplug output lets the user take advantage of computer based sound systems or earbuds/headphones.

Easy to program with suplied remote. Aux antenna supplied works realy good. Picture quality in 16x9 format is sharp and color is good. Built-in rechargable battery, car charger cable make this easily portable. The supplied RCA cables are invaluable

Supplied remotes buttons require some effort(pressure)to work. Needs a tote bag for portability

Consumer review by:

Poor performance, very very strong signal required

 

Useless as an emergency TV unless you are in a very strong signal area and only need 1 to 2 hours of viewing.

Sleek design, simple controls, good image when you can get a station, light weight, easy to use

Much poorer sensitivity than any other TV I have ever tested.Unless you are in a very strong signal area, don't buy it. Also, it uses an internal battery with very short viewing time of 2 hours or less. If you want a TV for emergency look elsewhere

A Must for Your Emergency Kit

 

If you don't have a backup generator, this is a must during a storm or a brownout.

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

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...

 

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,...

Super cheap price ; Simple operation

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!

 

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. I was so pleased with my first unit that when...

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...

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

 

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...

Light weight, and has a clear picture on channels that it does get

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

Consumer review by:

Quad duty

 

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...

Even when plugged in it does not charge battery while the TV is turned on

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...

Consumer review by:

Never worked

 

None

Even when I hooked it up to my cable, it was only able to get a few cable stations. Was not even able to get one channel even with the external antenna
