Advantages: Neat and small.. ideal for un-intrusive viewing
Disadvantages: Channels can't be stored and you have to search for you channel each time you switch on
The Casio 1800 is a lovely little grey cased tv with a screen measuring 2.5 inches (diagonally). It's ideally suited to the kitchen, where worktop space can be limited but would also sit happily next to your pc, in an older child's bedroom etc.
To tune channels, you have a left and right scanning button and an aerial which can be extended and rotated. The aerial will easily fit, extended, under wall cupboards.
The drawbacks of this tv relate to tuning. There is no way of storing channels, so you need to tune left and right each time you switch it on. Also, it always returns to it's default tuned channel, so you cannot switch on and automatically see the channel you last watched.
The Casio can run on battery power but only for about 30 minutes. This is a handy feature, even if it's only used to watch the last few minutes of a major sporting event, whilst you're out in the car. Otherwise, a multi purpose adapter will fit this tv.. no need to by a specific power supply.
