Bottom Line:   
I bought this 13" set for my kitchen, maybe a year ago. It replaced a 13" Zenith mono and replaced it well! I have it hooked up to cable using a signal splitter from the cable. Picture quality is good, perhaps not quite as good as my old Sony 13" Trinitron, but certainly acceptable.

Connections are via front and back panel and are easy to make. I've used a VCR with the set - no problem. The remote is good; however, I am not crazy about the placement of the much-used Previous Channel button - it's up near the upper lefthand corner of the remote. This is a minor complaint, to be sure.

The sound is nothing to cheer about, it's about what you'd expect from a set this size. However, I went out through the headphone jack into a set of PC Works speakers(about $40 from Cambridge Soundworks or hifi.com)that include a small subwoofer. The difference is quite noticeable and well worth the price of the speakers.

You won't find many 13" stereo TVs anyway, and this one is a pretty good deal if you need an extra set and want stereo, or if you just have very limited space. Be sure to consider external speakers, though!

Bottom Line:   
I bought this unit for office use and occasional recreational use with DVD's. I liked the set's styling, the picture was good and the sound also good, for a small set. It is hard to get a stereo set in this size range, especially one with two video inputs. While these are only RCA inputs, I doubt that you would notice much difference with S or component inputs.
Only quibble was that there was a picture tilt obvious when letterbox dvd's were played. In fact I took the first set back and had it replaced. The second set appears much better in this regard but may still be out a couple of degrees. Since tilt is hard to see with full screen, check it out with a letter box source.
