Hi I was wondering if any one has tried these in their Van's? They are cheap I know, but I was never going to put in a TV in but at this price I'm considering it.

Hi Reef

I'll give you my humble opinion on stuff like this.

1. you will pretty much get what you pay for - so don't buy this and expect Sony quality.
2. electronics these days is fairly reliable in terms of failures, and I personally would probably take the risk and buy this if I did not want to spend a lot of money to use something once in a while.
3. unless it is DOA, consider it a throw away item and do your dough if something goes wrong as it will not be worth the aggarvation and cost trying to fix it or get it fixed under any warranty it has (which will probably be return to somehere in the East) unless you live where the warranty is handled. But at that price you are not losing much if you get some use out f it.
4. some of these "cheapies" like some of the mobile phone "cheapies" can have some performance issues but you have to be prepared to put up with that.
5. be aware that while it has a HD tuner, you will need to be in a digital reception area or have a satellite kit to get TV. And you will need some form of external antenna unless in a really strong reception area.
6. You will probably find a number of these units all come out of the same factory wth different brand names on them and they wll generally serve you well for a considerable period of time.

In all honesty I have had better reliability out of some cheap foreign stuff than Aus or US made stuff of more recent times.

Good morning all
We purchased a Neoni digital TV for our van about 2 years ago. We run it on 12 volt all of the time and it has been great,
Whereas we had major problems with the KNOWN brand that was supplied new with our van 4 years ago which only ran on 240 volt.
Regards

I bought the neon lcd t.v for the van, but found it unsuitable due to the glossy sceen causing reflections, making it hard to see the picture.
If possible go for a t.v with a matt finish screen, it is much easier to view. Well that's my opinion, for what it is worth.

Should have said, I ended up giving the neon away and purchased a soniq with matt screen from J.B's.
From memory I think it was a similar price to the OO online price
