Energy Guide The Coby TFTV1525 15" High Definition Television provides great features in a small, inexpensive package. Its 1366 x 768 native resolution translates to 720p in high definition but its TFT LCD display can also handle 1080i and 1080p signals. And those signals will remain in pristine digital form from source to set thanks to the 1525's HDMI all digital input.

The 1525 has NTSC, (conventional) ATSC, (digital) and QAM (analog and digital cable) tuners. So it's ready for just about anything. (Having both NTSC and ATSC tuners is particularly convenient for our Canadian friends, who won't be going all digital until August 31, 2011. You can enjoy conventional NTSC TV now and ATSC when the big switch comes without having to buy a new set.) The set's Parental Controls also work with both the US and Canadian systems, which differ slightly.

When you're tuning in those digital OTA (over the air) signals the Digital Signal Intensity Display you can call up via the remote control will come in handy. And you can label channels. You'll be able to channel surf easier with labels "TNT" or "BET" rather than just numbers. And speaking of surfing you can designate some channels as your favorites and scan them first.

Every set does closed captioning these days but only a handful, including the 1525, can display all four CC and four text channels from programming that provides them. CC was designed, of course, for the hard of hearing but it also comes in handy for those learning English as a second language or when you're viewing in noisy environments.

And if you like to drift off to sleep you can set the sleep timer to turn off the set in from five minutes to four hours.

      This small TV is in my guest room. It is very good looking, takes up very little space on the dresser and adds to the decor. The picture I receive is sharp and clear. I couldn't ask for anything better. And the price was terrific.

      Perfect size

      This TV is perfect for a kitchn counter. It is a bit tinny sounding, picture is OK, turning on and off with remote takes a few tries, very surprising.

      I am very happy over all as it was hard to find one that would fit and it looks good.

        Picture kept fading from light to dark. Maybe it was just defective.

        I thought it was our television service and called them and they sent a technician out to check the hook ups, etc. He said everything was working correctly, but the picture did not change at all on the Coby.

            Installed this model in the kitchen with an inexpensive wall mount bracket to replace an under the cabinet model that was half the screen size and twice the price. Good looking picture running off digital cable input.

                i only rate it two stars because of the weak base and mounting options. However you can buy some maffer clamps and a simple screw pin and you're all set to mount onto any stand.

                        This monitor is being used on a workbench thanks to its many inputs and small size. It works well for this. It is getting to be hard to find simple small monitors. This is a second unit, the first was DOA, and the new unit came with a significant 'M' shaped scratch on the screen. It was under the factory wrapping.

                        Not great, not terrible. The screen is quite glossy and the angle of view is narrow, but the picture is clear and crisp and the input options are sufficient. Overall it is a fine TV for the price, but not what I wanted in the end. Depends on your intended use I suppose. I was looking to display some detailed artwork on the vertical, so the angle of view was the deal breaker for me. If you are looking for a basic TV for the kitchen or kids, this would probably do the trick.

                              I wanted a small screen for my office and so far this 15 inch screen has met my expectations. However, even after adjusting the sound, there was a little too much treble for my taste.

                              You have to have a fairly direct view of the screen for the picture to look its best.

                              Overall - for the office it is great.

                                    This TV is perfect for a kitchn counter. It is a bit tinny sounding, picture is OK, turning on and off with remote takes a few tries, very surprising.

                                    I am very happy over all as it was hard to find one that would fit and it looks good.

                                        This small TV is in my guest room. It is very good looking, takes up very little space on the dresser and adds to the decor. The picture I receive is sharp and clear. I couldn't ask for anything better. And the price was terrific.

                                        Main reason for purchase was the fact that it offered a S-Video connection for watching my Old S-VHS Tapes...most Modern Flat Screens don't.

                                          I'd give this a 5-star rating if it sold for $20 less and a 6-star rating if it sold for 40 less than I paid. It works as advertised. The picture quality is very good but not breathtaking. We buy these as replacements for the old 13" and 14" CRT TVs that our 160+ in-house account representatives use at their desks for monitoring financial news programming. These units are very easy to set up.
