Best Portable Television Based on Popularity - HDTV has a 9-inch screen

The Philips PT902/37 9" Portable Digital HDTV with FM Tuner is currently the most popular portable TV on Amazon. More than 50 customers have reviewed it, giving it a 4 out of 5-star rating for features such as the image quality. One Amazon reviewer said, "Great picture quality. It takes a bit of time to figure out how to program the channels but besides that, the TV is worth its cost. The TV does not require a converter box to tune the local air channels. It is a great small portable TV for the kitchen use or for taking with you to places. The FM radio feature and cable TV capabilities are a plus as well."

This 7-inch TV gets good ratings from customers, with more than 120 reviews giving it an average of 3.6 out of 5 stars. It weighs less than one pound (.88 pounds without the stand) and comes with a detachable antenna, remote control, stand and other accessories that make it easy to use and convenient to tote around.
