I purchased this TV /DVD player as a Christmas present and was shocked to find that the T.V. did not pick up one channel with the antenna provided. I got a booster antenna at Radio Shack for $12 and was able to get 22 air channels. The DVD works well and the colors are very nice. I'm not too sure how well it will work when we get out next hurricane or how long the battery will last, but this is why I purchased this item.

Philips PET729/37 - 7 Inch LCD Portable TV / DVD Player

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for a friend and I always like to set things up to make sure the item is working before I give it to the party in question.

Setup was a breeze, very intuitive. I hooked it up to the cable system and it found every channel, it only took about 5 minutes and I was watching a very sharp picture on the 7" screen. Sound was good also, I think she will be thrilled with it. I got this as a lightening deal, but I think it is worth the full retail price.

I bought this tv/dvd player as a treat for myself, after saving up loose coins all year. I first purchased another brand (the Envizen), but the dvd player had problems, and it took a lot of effort to get any tv stations, so I returned it. But this Philips is wonderful. Without any effort at all, I received 10 local stations, easily and clearly. I lucked out and bought this product before the price went up, so I feel like I really got a great bargain. This is a great choice if you want both a dvd player and tv (especially if you have a power outage and are trying to keep up with the news...like during a blizzard such as I'm in the middle of now!).

Wow! what a deal. I purchased this for myself for Christmas of 09. It arrived quickly. The picture is very clear and the sound is loud enough for me. I pick up all the digital channels, even some I can't receive on my cable tv. The only thin complainant I have is that you can't control the on and off and the sound from the remote. But I still give it a five stars rating. Also it really sounds great when you hook up some small media speakers to it. If you can, get one that has a sub woofer. Pop some popcorn and enjoy.

For my emergency Box,I bought a small portable handheld TV that used AA batteries (hard to find, they usually use rechargable ones, which would be useless after a couple of hours with the power out). The screen was too small to actually use regularly, and the attached antennae was too fragile and fiddly. Fine for the Emergency box, but that was about it. So I went looking for something more watchable, more practical for everyday use.

I plowed thru the Amazon site, weighing the cost and reviews, and this one seemed the natural choice.

This Phillips DVD/TV is a gem. I'm getting 83 stations, and that's more than my large Panasonic gets. The little Rabbit-Ears (in this case, itty-bitty Bunny Ears) antennae is solid, magnet based (great idea!) and works like a champ. It has a 4' cord, so it can be positioned pretty much where you like.

The picture is very good and the sound is fine. I would have preferred a bigger remote with easier to use buttons and labels...but it is handy, intuitive and very well designed. The remote is 2" x 6" x 1/2"...tiny, black and misplaceable. A design improvement might be to have a recessed area underneath the unit that could store the remote.

If you are looking for a 7" TV or a DVD player, you might as well pop for the double function of this unit...apparently those other cheaper little TV's aren't gathering too much good feedback. This one has great feedback, so this is your recommended choice.
I've had this one for a week now, and I love it so far. I'll amend this review if I find other things of interest to potenetial buyers.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
All in all, this is an okay item. Having read previous reviews, I followed to the letter the bit about scanning for stations prior to trying to watch station. I used the antenna provided, and came up with most of the stations, except for our local ABC station. I'm in Los Angeles and have line of sight to Mt. Wilson, so not getting ABC was a shocker. I got 64 stations in all. I read about the antenna booster thing, and did not know what that was. Went to Frye's and they sold me an amplified antenna (which I am taking back). I got 76 channels with that, and ABC came in. I'm going to try the booster antenna question at Radio Shack as per one gentleman's review, and see if that will be better than carrying around this thing from Frye's.
My concern with the antenna as provided, is that I plan to use this when traveling and will need to rescan for different cities. I would like to be able to get the full range of broadcast stations, ensuring I have access to the major networks as I travel. Not getting ABC in the LA area is what drove this concern.
As for the TV/DVD itself--once the channels are found, the provided antenna works well. Signal gets noisy/loss when you move the player itself, which is a surprise since you would think the signal would be dependent on antenna placement more than the TV itself.
I have two major disappointments, which make me wonder if I should return the unit. After looking at other TV/DVD combo options available, I think I will keep this one and compensate, unless I decide to get only a TV unit (sans DVD player for which I can use my laptop):
1. The screen angle is not very forgiving. Being LCD, you have to look pretty much dead on.
