I bought one last spring and it hangs on the forward bulkhead of the main solon. It hardly pulls any power. Three hours of watching and there was very little drain on two group 27 batteries. The nice thing is the space it saves too. There perfect for boats. They''re not cheap though! You''ll like it!

Thanks! Just hoping the salt spray doesn''t hurt the screen. I plan to mount as far forward as possible. They are getting less expensive by the day. A good 17" (which is the same size as a 19" tube screen) that can do picture in picture and double as a computer screen is around $700.

Plasma screens are a nice additon to any vessel but don''t take your boat into international waters, the Bush administration considers these "weapons of mast destruction"

Do they make these for DC or are you using an inverter?

All of the LCD TV''s are generally 12 volt units that run off of a power converter that steps down 110 to 12 volt. I plugged by TV directly into the boat 12 volt system. I do not think that any real Plasma TV can be used on a boat since (to my knowledge) they are all 110 units and very finicky on cycling. I have a Sony Plasma in my house that will flicker on occasion if the power cycles at less than 60. I would never put Plasma on a boat

Mine is the SHARP AQUOS LC-15C3U. It also has the step down transformer to 12VDC. I contacted Sharp and asked if it could be hoohed up direct to the 12V system, and they DID NOT recommend it. So, I use a 250watt invertor and it works just fine. I hoist an antena up the mast and the reception is pretty good.
