Ideal little TV for kitchens or bedrooms

Advantages: Small and compact, good picture, good sound, easy to set up and use
Disadvantages: Nothing for me
This is the TV we have in our kitchen as we wanted something small and compact. This has a 19 inch screen size, a thin frame and the flat screen is quite thin, making it take up only a small space on the counter. I was not sure about the brand LG as I once had a mobile phone from them which I found poor quality and only lasted a matter of months, but I have been happy with the TV and have really had no complaints about it.
=== Viewing quality ===
It is an LCD TV and personally my untrained eye can't really detect much difference between the picture quality of this and an LED TV, although I have been told that LED TVs are generally preferred these days and our main TV is LED. The picture looks sharp, with the colours looking fairly bold and not washed out or weak in any way.
The sound is also fine. My dad uses this TV to watch a lot of music programmes such as live jazz while he is cooking and he feels the sound quality is good enough for this. I usually just use this TV more for watching the news or some general early evening TV like the Pointless gameshow, so I am not as picky about the quality of the sound as it doesn't matter as much for my shows, but I also find it good, clear, can go quite loud, and meets my expectations. Apparently it has "invisible speakers" which "enhance the audio by increasing the 'sweet spot' to give a wider and richer sound field".
The TV can be used for HD, although sometimes we have experienced some problems with the HD channels and have to switch between BBC one and BBC one HD to see which is giving us a better picture at any given time. It can occasionally break up and look a bit fuzzy. I'm not sure but I think this problem is due to the Virgin box rather than the TV itself.
=== Connections ===
It has one HDMI port which can be used to connect a Virgin or Sky box etc or a blue ray player. It also has a scart port which you can use to connect a DVD player.
It has built in digital freeview so no box is needed if you just want to watch the free channels on this.
There is a power button on the TV and the controls on the remote are really self explanatory. It is an easy TV to set up and use.
=== Cost ===
This TV is available for £219.99 from Amazon.
=== Overall ===
It is a good little TV for rooms like the kitchen where you don't need a big screen. We are happy with it and my parents also bought one for my grandma for her kitchen, so they have recommended it.
Summary: Decent little TV
