Local Channels Not Alailable
from Arlington Heights, IL
About Me Practical
Comments about Hammacher Schlemmer Black 7" Portable HDTV And DVD Player:
I bought this small digital TV to replace a 2 inch TV that's not digital. I live in a suburb outside Chicago (25 miles) and found out that I can't get the local channels for CBS, NBC, WLS, WGN, PBS, etc. I was told by ABT and the company that makes this TV that the digital signals are now not strong enough to receive the transmission. I was able to get other cities for some of the basic channels, but even these break up at times and get the 'no signal' mesage. There were some other features that appeared nice (radio, voice recorder, but don't waste your money if you want to get the local channels with watching this TV. You'll just get the 'no signal', with even using the outside antenna provided.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

a solid dvd player
although i purchased this product from my amex points its a solid player....the screen is very clear even in the sun...the sound is very loud which is good when there's road noise in the car....the only short coming is the tv reception....i know it depends where you live but even in the new york city area it was difficult to get stations to come in clearly if at all...also, the straps for the bag only allow it to hand behind a single seat for one person to view the screen...the bag straps should be longer or configurable to hang it in between the front seats so more people can view the dvd player
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
