Shiny black 46in tellies look silly on a kitchen worktop, while humping one into the bedroom requires a small crane and a team of haulage experts. Sounds like you need a portable flatscreen – not one of those 14in CRT monstrosities found in caravans and kids' bedrooms, but the Bravia B4000 series.
Now in less eye-squinting 20, 23 and 26in guises, they're the perfect size for a second telly – or a main one, if you can touch all four walls of the living room from your couch. With a built-in handle, they're also worthy of the name 'portable'.
White and 'mocha' flavours help them blend in around the house, and there's been no skimping on the features. HD-readiness, virtual surround sound and Sony's visually pleasing Bravia Engine are all on board, plus Freeview to banish the need for a set-top box.
There are also two HDMI slots for your movie and console needs, and you can even give your green halo an extra buff: they draw a miniscule 0.7W in standby. If only Max and Paddy had found one before they nicked that plasma.
