Made by Chinese Manufacturer ChangHong these cute portable TVs also
feature a DVD Player built in that is disguised as either the Penguin's
beak or the Panda's stick of bamboo.
There have been several Chinese manufacturers bring
in TV sets to the Australian market of late which has really brought the
prices down to sometimes half of what a name brand set would cost. We
have tested a few of the new wave of Chinese sets and were quite
surprised by the picture quality of a few of them. While nearly all of
the Chinese TV sets we tested lacked somewhat in the sound department as
well as having a very plasticy cabinet, some had great picture quality
which is would make these sets great if you intended to use them with an
The Penguin TV
The Penguin and Panda sets would be great for the kids room
and they have some good features, like the ability to play
mp3s as well as burnt disks. The sets are stereo but lack a
stereo tuner so the kids will just have to settle to only
being able to watching their DVDs, or XBox via the AV
inputs, in stereo. Audio outputs are supplied as well as a
coax digital output from the DVD Player.
We were unable to establish when the Penguin and Panda TVs are
going on sale or their price. I think I will wait until
someone releases a Hello Kitty model.

considered the inventor of

far different from the sets that first became popular. his
