If you need a television for a space that's restricted in size -- a dorm room or the kitchen in a small apartment, for example -- you are in luck. There is a whole host of high-quality digital receivers available that will keep out of your way, but still allow you to catch up on what's going on in the world.
Like this Coby 10" Under-Cabinet Combination TV ($154). Hang this little TV under a kitchen cabinet or dorm room book shelf and you have digital reception while saving valuable space. You get a 10" screen, digital tuner, plus a DVD/CD player and an AM/FM radio. The operating parameters are displayed on the screen and the stereo speakers -- while small at just 3" -- provide nice separation. If the TV doesn't keep you sufficiently occupied, use the video and audio input jacks for games or tunes.
If you have a conveniently located tabletop, check out this Samsung 19" LED Television ($238); the screen has an integrated digital tuner and HDMI input for games, 720p resolution for a crisp viewing experience, proprietary SRS speakers that offer up full-bodied sound, and a port for a USB device so you can access your media files, controlling all with the included remote. This TV would be ideal for a kid's room.
Moving up to a (relatively) larger size, for a small space, this Phillips 22" LCD Television ($179). Progressive scanning HD resolution, Surround Sound for the audio end of things, and PC and HDMI inputs for your computer, DVD and Blu-ray players, and various game consoles. The TV is Energy Star-rated and features a tilt stand for optimal viewing, a remote (with included batteries) and a one year (limited) warranty.
