NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute announces The Best Portable Pocket Digital Television after it outperformed all other models in tests for reception, ease of use, and durability.

"For 28 years, the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute has performed comparison tests to determine which products are The Best of their kind," explained Sheri Camarata, Manager of Product Research for the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute.

The portable televisions were tested from the 21st floor of an urban high-rise, inside a suburban, brick ranch house, and in a corporate office. The Best model displayed an average of 34 channels, 47% more channels than any other television, and its percentage of stations with crystal clear reception was 57% higher than its closest competitor.

Built for ease of portability, The Best model is only 4 3/4" long and its durable construction helps it withstand the rigors of travel.

"The Best Portable Pocket Digital Television did not incur any damage after repeated drops from 3 1/2' high, unlike other models that suffered damage to their battery compartment or housing," explained Ms. Camarata.

The Best Portable Pocket Digital Television's superior features include 480 x 272 resolution that produces crisp images and sharp motion devoid of streaking or blurring and a generous 60 degree viewing angle that allows adjacent viewers to watch programs easily.

The Best Portable Pocket Digital Television is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $199.95. For more information about this product, please visit www.hammacher.com/78845 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com
