Perhaps I will need to do an exhaustive search of 16:9 ratio PC monitors that accept an HDMI input that are small (I'm having a hard time finding small ones unlike the old days where small computer monitors weren't unusual at all) and the stand can be taken off so I can lay it flat on/in my console style A/V stand.
Were you ever able to find anything? Here's another somewhat costly option I stumbled upon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJcyNXkTbrk

And back on topic, I managed to get an open box Sony sx1000 from Best Buy. When you have many appointments to schlep kids to soccer and karate classes, you soon even get fed up trying to run errands during that time. Instead I carry this player with me and just sit in my car catching up on my library of movies. And with the 5 hour battery, I don't stressed by just watching one movie and fearing I'll lose power.
