Sony's FDL-250T Watchman portable LCD television comes with a 2.5-inch active-matrix TFT (thin-film resistor) screen that provides clear, color images and a range of viewable angles. When folded, the device measures a mere 3.6 by 4.3 by 2.8 inches (W x H x D), and weighs about a pound with its 3 AA batteries (not included). It sports a flashy silver finish and a folding design.
The television is equipped with Sony's Straptenna neck strap that lets you wear the TV around your neck. The 51-inch strap also doubles as the unit's antenna, though you may also hook up an optional antenna cable for even better reception if desired. A built-in speaker delivers sound, while a monaural headphone jack lets you plug in a pair of headphones (not included) for private listening.
Additionally, the FDL-250T may be connected to external video components, such as a camcorder or a portable DVD player for convenient viewing on the road (though not, of course, while driving). When connecting an external device such as a camcorder, use a 3-ring minijack (.125-inch) audio/video connector such as those supplied with most camcorders. The Watchman offers a DC power input for use only with a Sony AC-E45HG AC adapter (not included).
Poor broadcast reception may occur when viewing the TV behind a mountain or a tall building, inside a train or car, in places subject to strong interference (as near a high-tension wire, a neon sign, or a radio station), below air-traffic routes, in underground shopping centers, tunnels, or in solid buildings.

I first got an idea of buying one of these portable tvs when I had to go to my three-year-old sister's gymnastic birthday party. I found myself sitting in the waiting room, bored to death, with dead batteries in my gameboy advance. Then another unfortunate guy came in and turned on a small casio portable tv. I walked over and checked out his little gadget, and was surprised at how good the picture was for the olympic USA vs. Canada hockey match. He noticed me looking over his shoulder, and asked me if I wanted to borrow it while he ran over to the bakery to grab himself something to eat. I said sure and found myself actually enjoying my time at the party.
I immediately started pestering my dad to take me to circuit city to let me buy my own portable tv, and used every last penny in leftover Christmas/birthday money. I was originally planning on buying a sony stereo system, but this seemed more like a neccessity than loud music.
I chose this sony model (I'm such a loyal sony fan) and took it home. When I popped in the batteries and flipped the switch to on, I was immediately stunned! The first thing I saw was Star Wars, on channel 11, and the picture and sound quality was perfect. I couldn't even tell the difference between it and a regular tv (okay, I admit it wasn't completely like our living room television). I scrolled through and found fourteen channels already available including NBC, CBS, WB11, Fox, ABC, etc. Plus the ability to upgrade to more channels! Wow. What a perfect item when going to Disney World and having nothing to entertain yourself while waiting in two hour long lines. Plus the little flip up visor is a big plus by blocking out unwanted sunlight and making it more of a theatre like experience.
Buy yourself this little tv and have some fun with it. ust don't show it to your friends. They'll get to jealous and not like you as much.
It is quiet portable ( though you cannot carry it in your pocket) . I have watched hours of programs including the WTC events/news and am very satisfied with the product.
Sony should contemplate on coming up with a design which is more portable. Including a FM/AM radio and a belt strap would make this product an indefeatable monster.
