Axion AXN-8701 7in LCD TV

Axion AXN8701 Counter Top Kitchen TV

Even though the Axion AXN-8701 bills itself as a battery operated portable TV it makes a great kitchen TV as well. A small fold out stand in the back allows you to place it on any convenient flat surface, and at 1 inch deep, it does not take up much space.

This little TV has a bright 7-inch LCD widescreen display, built-in ATSC/NTSC tuner that can handle both analog and digital channels and a supplied external antenna to tune in distant stations. One nice touch: the cord length on the external antenna is sufficient to place it away from the TV for optimum reception.

To get the most channels try running an auto-scan in different locations. Simply move the antenna and then re-scan. You'll pick up additional channels each time, adding to the final total. It is not possible to individually tune in a station.

There are A/V input connections for external audio/video sources, built-in twin speaker system and a headphone jack. The rechargeable Lithium-Polymer battery will give you about 100 minutes of use and there is also a AC power adapter as well as a car adapter. Note: You cannot charge the battery using the car adapter.

The included credit-card sized remote control does not offer an on/off button or a volume control, but you can mute the sound.

If you're looking for a small, sleek, mobile TV that can pull in the latest digital stations with either an antenna or cable connection, the Axion AXN-8701 is a solid pick.
