Looking for a neat holiday gift that's sure to please but EASY on the pocketbook? CVS has the Craig 7" TV with DVD model CTV 1703 in stores for $99.99 - some weeks on sale for $79.99 and if you're lucky (and you hold a red CVS courtesy card) your register tape might spit out a "$30.00 off any Craig TV" coupon. That happened to me! Actually, it was on sale for $79.99 and I got the thirty bucks off... total: $49.99 + $4 sales tax!
It's pretty easy to set up. Comes with remote control, antenna, AV in/out jacks, earphones, car charger and in-home power source. The hard part: digital TV reception. It's all about location and antenna placement. There are places in my house where I barely get one channel and other places where I get fifteen! My main concern about the TV feature is simply being able to watch local news in the early morning. When I'm at my desk, I have a mini-movie theater that enables me to watch as I work online... "ultimate digital multitasking???"
I stuck "specs" in the title of this post hoping to catch other folks who might be wondering about this little unit. It plays DVDs, Video CDs, audio CDs as well as files on SD/MMC/MS memory card - there is also a USB port!
The Craig can play .avi files that have been burned onto cds as data files! It reads WMA, mp3 and jpegs too!
You can adjust picture ratio, closed captioning, etc.
Have a look at the owner's manual in Adobe [PDF].
Any questions? If so leave them in the comments (look for the link below) and I will give you the technical answer you seek and/or my opinion, or maybe both! NOW YOU CAN USE FACEBOOK COMMENTS TOO!
