An upgrade to Axion’s popular portable: Axion AXN-8905 9-inch LCD TV. This 9″ inch portable television by Axion is built utilizing the company’s popular 7 inch platform! We noticed it performed similarly to its smaller cousin the Axion AXN- 8701. There are only a few substantial differences worth noting in this review. First is battery life: This 9-inch LCD will run 120 minutes on a fully charged battery verses 100 minutes with the smaller set. We tested the battery under normal viewing conditions on a couple of occasions and it lasted more than 3 hours during each test. Screen size is also larger by two inches diagonally and utilizes a wide screen active matrix TFT screen and has audio/video inputs to hook up just about anything, including a handy car AC adapter for use on the road. Using the USB port and the 3-in-1 (SD/MS/MMC) card reader also gives users the ability to use it as a digital frame or as a portable music device.

Like it smaller counterpart, the Axion AXN-8905 works best if it is initially set up to a strong antenna (old fashion bunny ears won’t do the trick!) and allow the LCD to find channels utilizing the initial auto scan. If you fail do this, the ability to find channels manually will be limited to those found during the auto scan (regardless of over-the-air signal strength) and you will wonder why you purchased this TV. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of channels (about 40!) we got over the air with this little set. The Axion LCD has also provided a small kickstand that allows the viewer to watch hands free. Although the display is not a high definition (HD) set, it does a great job of displaying standard and HD programming.

Also, the Axion AXN-9505 only works with digital inputs (i.e. over the air, satellite, or digital ready cable) because it is only equipped with an ATSC tuner. This small LCD is not equipped with a DVD player either, so if you are looking for a portable television with a built-in DVD player we suggest looking elsewhere. Our reviewers agreed that the sound quality and volume was sufficient for its small size. Don’t expect great things out of the small twin speakers. We therefore suggest using earphones for enhanced sound quality.

We already reviewed the extended life battery. If its two to three hour charge isn’t enough for your needs, it is equipped with a AC power cord and can also be connected to a car adapter.

All thing considered, this is one of the best portable digital LCD televisions on the market today. Although it retails at $189.00, we’ve seen it online as little as $90.00. This is one of the better portable LCDs we’ve tested, our reviewer think its definitely worth the price.

    despite the improvement in technology, CRT still beats LCD when it comes to contrast ratio.

    Great picture and sound. Finding the right place for the antenna has been difficult. Apparently, the metal objects interfere with the reception, including the corners of the walls.
