Which LCD TV for MH?

Am thinking about replacing the overhead TV in my rig with a LCD/Digital model. Anyone have any suggestions as to a make that can withstand the bouncing and jarring associated with life on the road?

I settled on Toshiba for front TV and Samsung for bedroom TV based on value - features, specs, reliability and price.

Just about every brand of TV has been installed in a RV.

I don't believe any brand has proven better of worse than the others as far being suitable.

I just replaced all my TV's with Vizios. I bought two 22" which are 1080 p for 264 and I bought a re-furbished 32" for the front. I am loving them with the Slimline.

Craig H,

I have this Sony and the picture is nothing short of spectacular. I also have a Vizio at home but this Sony is fabulous.

Good luck on your choice----

I had a Jensen installed. The Jensen is made for variations in temperatures, humidity and vibration. They coat there circuit boards and have components that have wider temperature ranges than household TVs that have a very nice operating range.

I would consider the Jensens

Actually, our Sanyo was made (assembled?) in Mexico. It is working well in our motorhome. OK for the money but it's $120 less now than we paid two years ago and there are better choices for what we paid.
