I'd be interested to hear what you end up with.
Interesting. I'd like to hear about which TVs you have looked at and do you have a preference?

Here are a couple of links to my local retailers. I find that many retailers use the same format in their websites and if you use the compare feature you can easily see the differences. Energy consumption is near the bottom. It looks like I was incorrect with the cheaper TVs being higher watts, on further looking it appears rather random. Probably a good idea to double check the specs on the brand website (if they're listed).

Compare Results - Best Buy Canada

Compare Results - Future Shop

As far as preference goes I rely heavily on reviews and specs. I'm leaning towards LG. I'm fully digital so I need a TV that will play MKV, MP4 and AVI files directly. I have a wallet sized hard drive and can store over a hundred quality movies plus most of my music collection. Way more efficient than carying DVDs and CDs. Not to mention not needing a player of any sort. Once I get an e-reader my storage needs will be even less.

This is all also very handy when you have the "boler" of condominiums.

Is this the LG you are interested in? HDTV | LG 19LE5300, Full HD 1080P, LED LCD TV | LG Electronics Canada

It seems one can play movies through the USB port on this model? High list price!

I was looking at this AC/DC Majestic that takes a Flash Drive and probably does what you want. $300US Majestic 15.6 LED TV 12V w/USB - ATSC Version f/USA

I really want a TV that has a head phone jack and both these models have one. They're becoming scarce on the smaller TVs.

I just ordered several more of these as I see they are down to $100.00 now

Viore 13" LCD HDTV, 720p - Walmart.com

I have several of these and have installed several more and they are an almost ideal TV for our tiny trailers as long as 13" will be enough for you?
They have a Digital HDMI input,VGA,Component Video and Don.......a Headphone Jack!
It runs on 12vdc and comes with the cord to do so.

This is not the best TV around by any means but for the price is a good deal.

Thanks for that Ed. I have a 13" Sharp now I'd like to upgrade from....to maybe a 19" at the largest....and would like LED. You probably read the post above about the 2 sets I listed....and yes, I know they're pricey. Any thoughts there?

And what about the Philips Philips 19" LED HDTV (19PFL4505) : 19" & Below LED TVs - Future Shop as it seems to have what I want. Need an inverter though and DVD player.....cost goes up.

Just found a site that included the other top under cabinet TV models (Top 10 Under Cabinet TV Reviews & Ratings 2013) as alternative choices.
