A flat-TV alternative to the old combo box

We're not talking about a high-end convergence phenom like the $10,000 " Q ," by the way, but something more like a TV/DVD/VCR combo that can be found behind the counter at Walgreens. But with TVs getting thinner all the time , the design and manufacturing may get increasingly tricky.

There is, however, an alternative. The "Razor Home Entertainment Theater" is a combo unit that can be mounted below a flat panel on the wall and play DVDs, CDs, and MP3s piped through its own built-in speakers. There's just one problem, as Red Ferret points out: This thing is ugly.
