Joy & I are in the process of upgrading our telvsion to a 22" flat screen. The TEAC brand is appealing. What are your thoughts on which is better - 12 V or 240V run off the inverter. Is there one that combines the two? Which is the better format - LCD - LED - Plazma? Your imput would be appreciated re the above or any other relevant information.

We have a TEAC 22" LCD cost less than $300 from Harvey Norman, combined with the Pioneer stereo deck that it uses to put sound through the van's speakers it consumes 6 amps [shown by the load on solar reg] It is 12v and the plug from the old TV fitted the TEAC, we do not use an invertor.

LED type apparently use less power, how much i do not know.

We had no problems tuning in Digital channels using the old set top box and old TV but since the TEAC we had to purchase a Wingard Wingman to receive digital commecrial TV and even then it sometimes will not tune in. We also have an Oyster Sat so no big problem,

Picture quality is excellent, it's approx 7 months old now and no problems.

Hi there Stephen & Deb,

Fit what in particular?

I didn't fit the Oyster Sat, that was done by SIM. I did fit the wingman, it was very simple.

Hi Greg,

Have just fitted a 18.5" Teac LED TV. Have ditched the power supply (extra weight that we don't need) Cut the lead where it comes out of the power supply & connected it directly to the 12v BT supply. This model only draws a little over 2 amps.
Works well. We take the TV of its mount & lay it on the bed for dirt roads, so I hope it lasts like the previous Samsung TV (6 years) now a monitor for my laptop at home.
