In my opinion, the Toshiba 19LV505 is a great TV for a small space. The combination unit makes maximizes the space especially in places such as RVs and dorm rooms. It certainly isn’t perfect, but for the size and the price it is a great buy.

The Toshiba 19LV505 has a 16:10 aspect ratio with TFT active matrix display technology that really gives this set a great quality. I find the 720p make the colors are really quite pure and the entire picture is sharp and well defined. It is really one of the best 19″ HDTVs on the market when it comes to picture quality.

The DVD player itself is just as good as others bought separately with the added benefit of having one remote control that run both units easily. I find the added DviX technology is a nice touch with this unit and makes it ideal for small spaces. The actual set up is virtually effortless with its menu system that is pretty self-explanitory.

Where this TV falls short I find, is in the audio. The audio itself is clear, but it is quite limited. This makes it great for RVs and other small spaces. I found that in an environment with a lot of noise like the kitchen or in larger bedrooms, the TV is really hard to hear even when the set is turned all the way up. If you plan on hooking up a stereo or speaker system, this problem won’t come into play. The other small issues is that there is no screen saver with the DVD and the remote lights up that drains the AAA batteries. Overall, however, a great little unit.
