Quoted Graff:We got one of these with DVD player and it is supposed to record however we wont be using that feature

Thats a coincidence Graff, thats exactly the model we chose, but purchased from DiddyDigital, their other outlet.

Dont forget the USB socket can be used for playing films, videos etc!

Good little set , only uses 20 Watts. Tinny sound only prob.

I have the MEOS and the Tesco one and I find the viewing angles better on the Tesco 15.6 with DVD which will also run on stabilised 12volt

Hi, the sound is not a problem as plenty loud enough for us, in fact I keep turning it down as Kath is a little deaf and likes high volume.

Not a problem for us as we are looking at it pretty much straight on.
I have never tried a side view so cannot comment on it.

Don't understand about all this voltage surge and need for stabiliser. Been running TVs for 15 years with no problem, mind you I have a pilot like check list before I move off and my son who's an electrical engineer connects everything up for me, so maybe I'm living in ignorance. Rock on.

We've had two of these in 10 months. They were both very good......................... until they failed
Now waiting for the third one

Never let anything mechanical know you are in a hurry

We got ours in the early Spring time and have had no problems at all.
Just speaking as we find and very happy with it.

If you worryabout voltage surges etc and the damage that can happen why not use an inverter, this will allow you to use the 240v stepdown transformer that came with the unit and giving you 12volt stabilised power, you can also use the inverter for your laptop etc. The efficiency of these units are now much better, approx +/- 90 percent and the cost is very minimal.

Hey ignorance is bliss, have now checked if I'm safe and my (frustrated) son tells me all my 12volt outlets are controlled by a voltage regulator as is my electrical installation in the house. Thanks for alerting me and who says 'the kitten never brings anything to the cat'
