You might try 'em on 12.. My Samsung is 14 and works well on 12 though I do not run it that way (do not have a 12 volt cord for it).

Many times the first part you hit is a 5 volt regulator.. It runs cooler with lower voltages.

Comments and suggestions as to TV's. As always cost is a factor.
It is becoming more and more difficult to find any reasonably priced 12VDC powered TV larger than 19".
Last Dec I added a small, (300 watt), MSW inverter up near the TV which powers both my new 120VAC 32" Vizio LED TV and my 120VAC DirecTV receiver, (and/or my DVD player), simultaneously...(no need to run the less efficient 2000 watt on board inverter).
Our bedroom TV is now the 5 year old 12VDC powered 19" Polaroid brand LED which I relocated from the living room.

We bought an 18 inch JVC DVD combo from CW and we really like it. It wasn't cheap (about $270) but it's better than the insignia 120v TV that we had in there before.

Well part of my buying now was wanting to get this project out and done. The TV's were $229 + Washington tax so for light 32" 8# WOW and knowing I can get the 12 to 19volt like a lot of laptops run I did the purchase.

The 32 inch insignia TVs at Best Buy are 12 volt and where approximately $180. Might be worth checking out for anyone that's looking. I believe they weight 7-9 lbs without there base. My 28 inch was about 7lb

I have an Insignia from Best Buy. It's 28" 12volt and U.S. Quite light. Decent picture. I Have a 39" at home and it works quite well
