    I'm looking for a TV for my bedroom. I want something pretty small to fit in the furniture I already have. It looks like I'm limited to at 13" TV (unless there is a 15-16" TV floating around!). Right now at the top of my list are:
    Toshiba 14AF41
    Philips Somba 13"
    Right now I'm leaning towards the Toshiba... it's the only small TV I've found with Svid/Component inputs (although you probably can't tell a difference on a TV that small!). Anyone have any suggestions on a good small Bedroom unit? Right now I'm going to hook up my old Toshiba Sd3006 to it... and my DirecTV fed from the Coax output on my DirecTV receiver. I would like to have a stereo output so I can hook it up to a stereo receiver. Any other suggestions (hopefully around the $200 price range?). Anyone with small TV experience that can give me some advice?

    Jin, I was in Best Buy tonight and just happened to be looking at the small tvs for no reason really (my wife was interested in a small 5 inch LCD that attached itself to the underside of a cabinet and could be pulled down for viewing). In the 13-14 inch range, the Toshiba seemed to the best. The Sonys were nice but, I think, $100 more. The only thing I didn't like about the 14AF41 is it's lack of the BBE enhanced sound that the rest of the flat tube AF line has. Of course, if you're listening to everything through your stereo receiver, this isn't really a concern. Other than that, it looked nice and has enough inputs for a 14 inch tv.
    Is that Phillips set the one with the alarm clock? It looked nice but I don't think it meets the needs you mentioned. It doesn't have a audio out and it has no Svideo or component inputs.
