Review 41 for Sylvania 7" Portable LCD TV, SRT702A

Great concept but

Out of the box, item is well made and easy to use. The menu is easy to follow, very intuitive. However, the auto channel load is very slow. I live about 7 miles line of sight to the Sears (Willis) Tower and found that the tv did not recognize digital signals on the low VHF channels 2 and 5 with the supplied monopole antenna. The antenna was very directional sensitive meaning that if I moved the TV I lost the channel and came up with the dreaded "no signal" message on a black screen. A nice toy, great for small space applications but a good antenna is a MUST!

Sylvania 7" TV, SRT702A

The sensitivity with the supplied antenna is quite poor. There was an improvement when an external ant. was added; but still is disappointing. Further comments relate to the TV with the external ant hooked up.
I found that I could not draw in the close local stations (standard channels), but the digital alternates were decent. The picture is great, the sound is marginal, and the instructions were very incomplete and poorly translated from the original language.
I purchased the TV for use during hurricanes (Florida), but will not be able to judge that use until I there is an electricity outage (hopefully, never).
I purchased online--I recommend looking at the unit in a store and seeing if it will work as you wish.

With storm season approaching we wanted a portable tv in case of a power failure. This did that and more.
It picks up local chanels and when connected to cable it will pick up the basic cable chanels.
It meets expectations, especially for the low price.

Not too bad!

My first purchase of a portable was this TV. Great price. Many features that I liked. It worked well on my out door antenna with two signal boosters in line to boost the signal. Scanned the channels and found around 28 . Excellent picture quality, many good features, the only drawback I found with this TV is the tuner would not pick up the audio portion of the broadcast signal on half of the channels. My best channel with a 65% signal level had no sound, while a channel with only a 10% signal with a degraded picture came in with great audio. I think maybe the AGC was set to high at the factory?

TV is poor on receiving digital channels!

I was extremely disappointed with this product because it was advertised as a tv capable of receiving digital broadcasting channels. I literally held the tv out of my third floor window and it could only receive 1 channel which broadcast in spanish. The product excels in having features that allow it to hook up with other electronic items, eg. dvd player, ipod, etc., however do not purchase this item if you are expecting to watch television programs.

Purchased two of them. One for a gift and one for me. The instructions made no sense and I am a pretty technical person. After an hour of trial and error I could not get it set up to receive more than one channel. If you move the TV more than a few feet you need to re-calibrate. Cannot be used in a moving vehicle. Only worked well if I connected to my cable system, but who wants a portable TV connected to a cable? Good picture quality but very difficult to use. I returned it to the local store.

This TV gets NO reception in my area unless it is hooked up to external antenna. This defeats the purpose of a portable TV. If you are more than 10 miles from transmission tower the antenna supplied with the TV is useless.

I BOUGHT THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY WIFE. IT WORKS FINE WHEN ATTACHED TO CABLE, HOWEVER RECEPTION IS NOT GOOD WHEN ATTACHING TO A RABBIT EAR TYPE ANTENNA. I COULD GET MAYBE 10 STATIONS AND ONLY 3 OR 4 OF THEM WERE THE MAJORS. WHEN I USED THE ATTACHED ANTENNA, I COULD GET 1 OR 2 STATIONS, AT MOST AND OCCASIONALLY. I'M IN THE WHITE PLAINS, NY AREA AND ALTHOUGH I DON'T LIVE AT THE BASE OF A TRANSMISSION TOWER, THIS WAS UNACCEPTABLE TO ME.

I live about 40 mi from the TV stations. Even connected to an external TV antenna, this TV could only get 4 channels reliably. My 9-yr old TV gets 13 channels using that same antenna. I bought it to monitor the weather during power outages, but it won't get the stations that have the good weather coverage. The picture is great and it has some nice features, but the 4 channels won't hack it.

Neat little TV with lots of accessories. It picks up weak signals well with a sharp picture. VERY poor sound quality with no sound at all on WKET 46.1, but sound on 46.2, 46.3. and 46.4.

I was unable to get any station with just the attached antenna. If hooked up to a roof antenna it gets a good picture. However, it is of no use as a portable where we live in VA. It might work OK in an urban area.
I am returning the product for a refund.

This TV got very poor reception and did not receive all the channels it was supposed to get. It is also extremely sensitive to movement. The channels that did come in would break up very easiliy if the TV was moved.

I was really excited about getting a tv I could watch @ work. I was highly disappointed when it only picked up 5 channels, none of which was channel 9. The antenna that comes with the tv is an analog antenna. So I went and purchased a digital antenna in hopes that more channels would come in, and they did, but not channels 7 and 9. I returned both products to the store.

The product was reasonably priced and felt well constructed. However, with a hi-def antenna it gets no reception whatsoever. The purpose of purchase was reception for news coverage in a storm when cable/electricity is out. I need to return.
Have been very satisfied with Sylvania in the past.
