7-Inch ATSC Portable TV for $109.99

I know many readers have expressed an interest in a low cost portable ATSC receiver. I saw an announcement this week for one offered by “QualiR” at

The 7-inch “ATSC Digital TV for USA” has a list price on the Web site of $109.99 for two units, with quantity discounts available. It indicated 125 units were in stock.

Limited information is available on the device. While it appears to have a 16:9 screen, the resolution is only 480x234 pixels. It requires 12 VDC at 800 mA or less.

There are a lot of missing pages on the QualiR Web site, but if any readers decide to order this receiver, let me know how it performs. If you are brave, open it up and see what chips are used. Send photos! I hope it works better than the first generation Insignia 7inch hand-held DTV!.
