The 8 Best LCD TV/DVD Player Combos to Buy in 2017

Still love watching DVDs? Don't worry, we've got you covered

With the streaming media movement growing every day, one might think the DVD has seen its heyday. Fortunately, the news isn’t that bleak and we shouldn’t bury the DVD just yet. While Blockbuster might be out of business, the DVD is still going strong and DVD players have dropped in price significantly. And one overlooked TV model is the combination of the DVD and television in one package. Whether it’s for convenience or the need for one less shelf item, the TV/DVD combination can be a great addition to your home.

With a 24” screen, the SuperSonic 1080p LED widescreen HDTV offers a fantastic price-to-feature ratio. While SuperSonic makes this unit in a multitude of other screen sizes, the 1920 x 1080-pixel, 24-inch display is their largest TV/DVD LED combination. The addition of HDMI and USB input allow you to boost the television’s capabilities beyond the DVD player with add-ons like Roku, Chromecast or Amazon’s Firestick. Additionally, the inclusion of a PC input provides the option of utilizing the SuperSonic as a computer monitor. As an added bonus, the unit is also SD card ready, so you can plug-and-play and enjoy your favorite music or view photos on the 24-inch display.

Beyond noise reduction and noise interference reduction technology, a 120Hz refresh rate and a bevy of standard features such as sleep timer and multi-language support help the SuperSonic stay in line with today’s top televisions. It shines with the side-loading DVD player that can play standard DVDs, CDs, and CD-RW/RW-formatted discs. Unfortunately, the SuperSonic, like most other TV/DVD combinations, will not play a Blu-ray DVD.

RCA’s slim, DVD-ready LED HDTV is another standout option on this list, and it's backed by a name that’s been a part of the television industry for decades. Offering full 1080p HD resolution, the 24-inch display provides a crisp and clear image that is well worth the budget price tag. Unsurprisingly, the RCA offers a host of connectivity features, including integrated USB and HDMI ports for utilizing third-party streaming options. Unfortunately, you won’t get the full slew of “smart” options (this isn’t a smart TV), but the integration of the DVD player will make owners all but forget about Netflix.

The side-loading DVD television allows viewing all your favorite shows and movies, as well as playing CD/R and CD/RW. At 7.3 pounds, the RCA is relatively light and slim for a built-in DVD player television combination, and if you're looking to enhance your TV experience you can hook up external speakers via a coaxial cable.

Right off the bat, you’ll notice the Sceptre 32-inch 720p LED HDTV separates itself from the TV/DVD combination pack with its all white design. A single remote allows you to control functionality for both the TV and side-loading, built-in DVD player. Additionally, the PC input allows the Sceptre to function as a large monitor. With its swivel base, the 12-pound television can rotate up to 20 degrees in either direction to provide the best view of its crystal-clear LED display. The rear of the TV also allows for mounting on a wall with a separately purchased wall mount.

The TV also features MEMC 120 (motion estimation and motion compensation), which helps the 60Hz display function crisply during action-packed sequences. Three HDMI inputs and a lone USB input allow for connecting third-party streaming devices or Sceptre’s MHL (mobile high-definition link), which connects via USB to an MHL-enabled smartphone or tablet to transfer movies, TV shows and music for viewing on the screen.

The sleek, side-loading DVD/TV combination from Axess comes in 24-inch and 32-inch varieties, and both include a 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution and 16:9 ratio for great TV viewing. The Axess includes built-in analog and digital tuners to catch favorite programs, as well as an HDMI port to connect any compatible media device such as Chromecast or Apple TV. Additionally, a 12V car cord adapter is available for powering the Axess while on the road, whether you're in an RV or tailgating at your favorite team’s Sunday game. The built-in AC3 decoder allows for full compatibility with Dolby sound for theater-like quality. Alongside its side-loading DVD player capable of playing all forms of DVD, including CD/R and CD/RW, there is additional support for SD cards for viewing images and pictures. A USB port is also available in support of third-party connectivity options.

Versatile, sleek and connection-heavy, the Proscan 24-inch LED HD TV is a great choice for anyone looking to buy a two-in-one TV/DVD combination. The included digital ATSC tuner provides over-the-air broadcasts in standout quality with channel control coming via the included remote. The remote offers control of both the television and the DVD player. Additionally, the Proscan is wall mountable via a separately purchased wall mounting kit, but also includes a stand for placement on an entertainment center, dresser, etc.

The side-loading DVD player offers playback for traditional DVDs, but not Blu-ray. However, you will find playback capability for CD/R and CD/RW. Beyond the DVD, there’s an included HDMI port, as well as VGA, audio/video in and a headphone jack for up close and personal DVD viewing. The 24-inch size is perfect for a dorm room, kitchen or small kid’s room where watching DVDs doesn’t allow for a huge television unit.

Despite having just a 24-inch screen, Artica’s TV/DVD combination packs quite a few features, plus 1080p display quality. The LED flat-panel offers a side-loading DVD player that includes CD/RW, CD/R, and CDs with both images and music loaded. Like most modern TVs, the Artica offers the now defacto inputs such as HDMI and USB. In addition, the Artica supports a VGA PC monitor input for utilizing the Artica as a monitor with your laptop or as an additional monitor for your desktop computer. Like most releases in this category, the included remote control can control both the television and DVD player.

While the included remote may not be unique, support for a coaxial antenna input and earphone jack make for unusual additions to this list. Inputs aside, at 8.1 pounds, the 24-inch display is adaptable to smaller areas like a child’s bedroom with a wall-mountable design that allows for easy hanging anywhere with a separately purchased mount. However, one caveat noted from early Amazon reviews has been unusually low volume, so you might have to pump it up a bit to hear the television.

The 28-inch Magnavox TV/DVD combination is a standout choice for shoppers looking to grab a television/DVD combination that hits the sweet spot in size for small rooms. The 28-inch display offers 720p LED quality with extreme contrast and deep black colors offering vivid picture detail. Supporting the higher-caliber picture quality is an energy efficient design with Magnavox claiming this television consumes less energy than a normal TV of the same screen size. If energy efficiency isn’t enough to win you over, the inclusion of front-facing Dolby digital speakers just might since they offer clean, undistorted sound. Additionally, Magnavox included their “Clear Pix” engine to help reduce motion blur during particularly fast-moving action scenes both on television and via the included DVD player.

As the lone top-loading DVD player on this list, there’s full capability for playing all DVDs except Blu-ray. Watching a DVD requires nothing more than sitting back and controlling everything from start and stop to fast forward via the included remote, which also controls the television. At 11.2 pounds, the Magnavox is slightly on the heavier side for its size but still manages to offer inputs like USB and HDMI.

At just 19 inches in size, the NAXA TV/DVD combination is a wonderfully small option that’s perfect for a small room or even a kitchen counter. The size and setup of the NAXA make it great for the road where it would fit nicely in a truck or camper and offer plenty of entertainment on-the-go. Small stature aside, the NAXA is full of inputs, including HDMI and USB for third-party plugins, as well as an SD card for loading pictures and video from a camera or computer. As a side-loading DVD player, the NAXA has the regular feature set, including CD/R and CD/RW playback, but lacks Blu-ray capability. The smaller size does require some finagling to find the right viewing angle, but it’s a small price to pay for a TV/DVD combination that’s RV- friendly. Its size might be perfect for road-warriors but homeowners will find wall mounting easy with a separately purchased wall mounting bracket.
