Akai’s L8 series LCD television range

Most of the interest in flat panel televisions concentrates on large screens for the living room, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to watch in the home’s more compact spaces.

Akai’s L8 series LCD televisions range include 19, 22 and 42 inch (48, 56 and 106 cm) models, each with inbuilt high definition TV tuners, HDMI, S-Video, and composite video connections, and a USB port that enables them to double as an XL-sized photo frame. The 42 inch offers full HD resolution, while the smaller models integrate a DVD player and three-in-one card reader.

Pricing starts at $600 for the L819DDVD, with the L822DDVD costing $700 and the L842DDFD, $1,700.
