Image for Best small LCD TV - Samsung LN19A450

Heres a quick summary of this model:

The 19-inch Samsung LN19A450 (in white as the LN19A451) is small, but the image is first-rate. Sized well for a bedroom, office or kitchen counter, the hidden speakers contribute to the small LCD TV's sleek look, but the "thin" sound they produce is the main complaint that a few express. If you want an even more striking design, the Samsung LN19A650 (*est. $375) brings the distinctive Touch of Color (ToC) bezel of Samsung's well-regarded Series 6 sets to a 19-inch screen size, but lacks the other high-end features found in the big-screen (40 inches and up) members of this series.

Well-thought out LCD TV, with good details. Nicer styling (to my taste) than the very similar 350 series and with sturdier control buttons on the side--'tho not an issue because a remote is included. The TV includes HD circuitry, so if a station like CBS or ABC is broadcasting in HD, you'll see it in HD without having to do anything special. Good sound (better than some other TVs I auditioned where the sound was soft/recessed) and high-contrast picture (also better than some other 19" TVs I looked at). Only complaint is the power cord doesn't plug into the back of the TV tightly enough and can come loose easily. Easy set up: you can connect a cable, VCR and DVD player simultaneously (I haven't tried the DVD connection yet but it looks like there are enough inputs) so you don't need adapters, etc. Some other 19-inch TVs are less expensive but for convenience, style, sound/picture quality and value I really don't think you can beat this.
