"Whether you are a businessperson who wants an easy way to record some TV shows to your laptop to watch on an airplane, a student who wants to add a TV to your bedroom or dorm room without the hassle and expense of buying a separate TV, or just someone who wants to watch some TV while surfing the net and record a few shows for the kids, the PX-TV100U is for you. Not only did we include all the features people would want, we did it at an affordable price and without monthly service fees."
