I have a Casio portable hand-held TV - unfortunately not with us so I
can't tell you the model number. I bought it for my mother whose
sight deteriorated in her last weeks to the point where she couldn't
see very clearly at all, and she found it useful. I used it for a
long time in the van before we bought the Thomson TV and had no
problems with it at all; the reception was good if you twiddled a bit
with the aerial, and the quality of the picture wasn't bad.
However....these things ~are~ 'hand-held', and therefore it makes it
difficult for more than one person to use it - unless you are sitting
straight in front of the screen the picture isn't very well defined -
it goes almost into a negative picture (like a photo neg). When
Himself came with me and we ~both~ wanted to watch the same programme
we had to cuddle up very close indeed!! ;-))
The sound - as in most small devices - is tinny, and I used it only
to watch the programmes I really would have missed if I hadn't seen
them, so to speak! You can use an earphone with them.
Pluses? You can run it of the 12v socket for aaaaages with minimal
drain on the battery. Minuses - apart from the above - use normal
batteries and it will cost you a fortune....
A black and white tv licence is £38.50.
