    Nothing at all worth worrying about. You might check how many watts it takes though.

    Dependent upon specific model a number of TV's are powered by an adapter that converts 230v AC to 12v DC. Our Medion is.

    If this is the case for the Finlux model you're thinking about you could, potentially, just power it directly from the motorhome 12v supply (via fused 12v socket) if you have a concern over inverter use?

    Finlux usually do a 12v version so may be worth waiting for that if out of stock.

    From a Finlux review forum --- it seems you get what you pay for

    they are what they are and that is cheap tv's

    i certainly wouldn't compare them to samsung, sony or panasonic who are high end brands

    they are a mid level brand offering low end prices as they sell direct to the customer (no middle man).

    if your looking for a cheap tv then yeah get a finlux, if your looking for a good tv however then i would look at the names i mentioned above.

    Have a look here -- http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?&_...A0.H1.X24" samsung tv.TRS0&_nkw=samsung 24 tv

    I have a Finlux (22" 12v). Picture is pretty good, service is excellent. I had a problem with the HDMI / SCART ports, they came and collected it and returned repaired within a week.

    also have a Finlux 22" ..

    As far as I'm concerned it's good enough for a motorhome...

    It's HD ready but it only has SD Freeview tuner.. match it with an HD satellite decoder and the picture is excellent

    it also benefits from only using 22 watts ... less than 2 amps
