I purchased this and it could be used for a monitor or a TV and I decided to use it for a TV and the picture is pretty good, unfortunately my cable does not provide me with HD so I have to watch everything wide screened and it ended up being decent and grainy at some times. But for the power cable if you can't get it to work with just a click you have to hold the TV and pusht he power inside hard since it doesn't fully go in. I was using my TV with the power adapter half out for about 6 months until it stopped working and i figured out that you ahve to push it really hard to pop it in.. The TV is very nice looking and it has good sound it is also very space saving. I would recommend this to other people as a monitor or a TV since it is one of the better portable small TV's out there for a decent price. If you were to buy this I suggest you buy it when it is on sale rather than when it is full price as this goes on sale.
