TVs, monitors, mobile phones – the average screen size in all these devices is gradually increasing. And this is logical, because it is much more convenient to consume content on a large display. However, a huge diagonal in TVs will not always be a good choice. For example, in the kitchen it is better to take a small device that takes up a minimum of space, but performs the necessary functions.

In reviews, the model is called successful, praised for the purity and contrast of the display, the ability to replace a PC monitor and support for the most common audio and video formats. For the kitchen, it is considered the best choice. They pay attention only to the instability of the complete legs and a rather weak sound – the desired level of power and volume can be provided by connecting speakers.
When every inch counts in the kitchen, and there is nowhere to build even 20 inches, the ultra-compact TV panel H-LED19R401BS2 comes to the rescue. Its dimensions are 442 × 236.6 × 52.6 mm, weight 2.3 kg, it is very difficult to find a smaller TV. An IPS matrix with a contrast ratio of 1000: 1, a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel response speed of 5 ms transmits the picture in full, and the sound is provided by 2 speakers of 2 W each with a Dolby Digital decoding system.
Against the background of competitors, the model compares favorably with the efficiency of energy consumption. In the operating mode, power consumption does not exceed 18 W, in the “sleep” mode – 0.4 W. Convenient when it is important to save on utility bills. According to users, the TV is worthwhile, watching movies and programs on it is a pleasure. True, the viewing angle is quite small (140 °), and the flash drive loads slowly, but in all other respects the device is one of the best.
With this TV, there is no doubt that it will catch all digital channels, even with the simplest antenna. It is likely that an amplifier will be needed in a remote region, but there are no complaints about the sensitivity of the built-in tuner near settlements. In addition to all other advantages, the model is also omnivorous in terms of reading various video formats. According to reviews, for several years of operation there was not a single case that she did not read some data from a flash drive.
Budget option – to give what you need. It is also lightweight and can be transported by public transport. The control panel is conveniently located – on the side, and not behind, like in analogues. Standard disadvantages for this diagonal are weak sound and outdated design. It is desirable that in the updated version, the engineers reduce the thickness of the device, it obviously has extra centimeters. And the sound problem can be solved on your own by finding audio speakers to your liking.

Asano 20LH1010T 19.5″ (2019)
A juicy, bright screen is the first thing that catches your eye when testing the Asano 20LH1010T TV. Its diagonal is small, it is only 50 cm, so the optimal resolution of HD 1280×720 is selected for it. The LED backlight is responsible for the brightness and clarity of the picture, and the sound system with two 3 W speakers and a corresponding decoder is responsible for the Dolby Digital sound. The model is fresh, introduced in 2019, and therefore endowed with modern features and equipped with a wide interface.

Harper 20R575T TV
Almost every online platform about this model left the largest number of reviews. Budget, high-quality, with a bright screen and clear sound – these are the main reasons for its popularity. The TV set is assembled in Belarus, at the legendary Gorizont plant, and buyers expect a long period of trouble-free service. As it should be 20 inches, the panel does not take up much space and does not require a massive base – its weight is completely comic, only 1.7 kg, and can be installed on the refrigerator.

Erisson 20LES85T2 19.5″
Erisson 20LES85T2 19.5″
A common problem with TVs up to 20 inches is flat, uninteresting speaker sound. The Erisson brand, even in the budget segment, to which the 20LES85T2 model belongs, tried to satisfy customers with good stereo sound due to two 2×6 W loudspeakers with increased power. The equalizer function allows you to selectively adjust the amplitude of the audio signal and thereby achieve the desired effect.
The device has been produced since 2018, and its design, by today’s standards, is already considered to be middle-aged. The same TFT TN matrix, for example, receives a lot of criticism for poor viewing angles, but it is she who needs to be thanked for her short response time (5 ms). As you know, the smaller it is, the better – a clearer image, fewer artifacts, easier impact on the eyes. In addition, the pre-installed program settings help to improve the picture – “Cinema”, “Sports”, “Game”, in total 8 special modes.
