If, like me, you live in a medium-fringe TV area, and you are going to be using the supplied (or other external) antenna, one of the first things to do when you receive this cute little TV is to connect it to the best antenna available to do your auto-scan. That's easy because it has a standard antenna connector, and necessary because this TV will_not_tune to any channel not previously found by auto-scan. Manual tuning just selects a channel previously auto-scanned. At my location, the attached rabbit-ear antenna is virtually useless. But with my large, amplified home antenna connected, I easily picked up all the digital stations I usually get, plus one more, and with no problems from the many big trees around my home. So the tuner is very sensitive and not very subject to multipath interference. With the supplied external antenna connected, I eventually managed to get all the stations received using the big antenna, which was a nice surprise, although it took some fiddling with antenna position (Two inches can make all the difference). The digital TV picture provided is very good, with very nice color, resolution and contrast.

I didn't expect great sound, since the speakers are tiny (about 1 inch diameter, on the front). It's certainly not high fidelity, but it is intelligible at least. The sound from earphones is somewhat better.

Other surprises include no volume and no power on/off switch on the credit-card sized remote (No big deal. Gotta be almost within reach to see the picture details anyway). And the internal battery cannot be charged on the car adapter -- It's charged only when the TV is connected to AC power.

I had a 5" black and white in my kitchen and knew with the digital conversion, I would need something else. I ordered this based on the 2 reviews out there at the time and I am so pleased with this TV. I live in Houston so there are almost 40 channels available between the digital and the analog, I get channels on this that I don't even get on my standard cable! initially I had trouble with some of the digital stations, I kept moving the TV around trying to pick up the signal (my problem was that I want the TV to sit under my cabinets and I guess that was interfering with the antenna picking up clear signals). I was getting frustrated and then remembered the other antenna it comes with. I unplugged the internal connection and plugged this extra antenna in and placed it on my window sill and all the channels came in perfectly without having to adjust anything. The cord on the extra stand up antenna is long enough to put it rather far from the TV which is very convenient because you can move it around to find the best reception. The picture is clear as a whistle and the sound is very good, not muffled or fuzzy at all. The wide screen is another bonus, most of the digital HD channels are in wide screen mode so it works out well. This is a no brainer to set up and I am so glad I took the plunge and bought it!

Update: I have not had to use this yet in a power outage but have occasionally unplugged it and brought it to the table to watch during dinner when I wanted to see a show I was in the middle of. The 1 1/2 hr. battery now barely works for 1/2 hr. and I have not used it often. I really bought this to use in my kitchen but also just as importantly, to work during another hurricane after having a small black and white that took batteries and worked beautifully last time I needed it.

Axion AXN-8701 7-Inch Widescreen Portable Handheld TV with Built-In Tuner (Black)

This hand held television has clear reception. For what it is, it is very good. The only draw back is that the battery is rechargeable for 100 minutes. A hundred minutes will not go far enough after you lose power from a storm.

This will not be a good choice during hurricane season when you really need a television that takes replaceable batteries that can be changed when they become weak.

I got this for my kitchen so I can watch the news while cleaning up after dinner. This TV is perfect for that sort of task. It picked up about 2/3 of the channels that my big tv gets with the built in antenna on autotune. With the external antenna it receives all but one (one of those channels way up in the 100's with the big haired religious preachers). I don't mind that it missed that one. It's clear enough to read the annoying scrolling messages that the stations like to run along the bottom of the screen.

The internal antenna and external both connect with a coax. Don't be stupid like I was and try to attach the external directly to the TV. A nice 90 degree adapter is included so that you can easily switch between the two antennas by just pulling one off and replacing it with the other. I did not see that part right away because I am one of those people who never reads directions.

The remote is one of those tiny credit card things. It does not have a volume control (but does have mute). You adjust the volume with a dial on the side of the TV. It is loud enough to be heard over a running dishwasher. The old Coby this replaces did not have volume on the TV and I found that annoying since when I could not find the remote I could not adjust it.

If you can not get the TV to let you adjust the time zone and daylight savings time you need to switch it to a digital channel. Also, only on digital channels does the "guide" button, (which tells you about what is on) work.

Works well for what I want to use it for. I would not want to watch, say a PBS special, on it because of the size, but it is perfect for a portable TV.
