With the transition to digital TV now complete in the U.S., all those compact portable TVs that were toted to sporting events or kept around for emergencies when the power went off became obsolete--turn them on now, and you'll get nothing but snow. Stepping in to the void is a new breed of portable DTVs, most of which currently aren't made by name-brand manufacturers, including the Eviant's T7 7-inch Portable TV.
The T7, which online costs slightly more than $100, comes in a variety of colors, including black, white, and red, and all of them have a glossy finish that gives the TV an elegant look at the expense of attracting fingerprints. You can watch the TV by either holding it in your hand--or rather both hands since it weighs 1.5 pounds--or you can prop it up on a flat surface using the built-in kickstand that supports the unit nicely (there's also a pair of keyhole slots if you want to mount it on a wall). The translucent shield that covers the display is reflective and creates some glare issues if you have the TV at the wrong angle--but at least the screen is protected.
