It's just one of those standard "under the counter" models from Best Buy. The Screen flips up into the unit when not in use. It's kinds pricy at $200 but well worth it.

Damn! That is a really neat little unit. I just checked Best Buy and the US branches are all sold out and the Canadian branches don't even list it. Oh Wo is me!

$200 seems a VERY good price for all that. I have used Phillips webcams, very good quality. Hopefully they follow suit with these.

Is it strictly 120v?

Unfortunately yes, but you could always install an inverter.

I have seen these units on the market with various retail stores for quite some time. You'll find one. Google it.

Home Depot is where we got ours but I do not use it in the Trillium as you'll see in May when you venture south. I can/have also wired mine into our new P.C. ...just in case the urge hits us!
I prefer to carry (in the closet where many load a micro) a 13in color Akai TV/DVD player combo. I have the trailer wired for cable and phoneline service (as my old internet connection was dial up phone line and totally portable)

Ok! Thanks for the heads upDoug.
BTW I don't think we are going to make it down for your gathering. Our farm sale is finalized and we have to be out by May 13th or may be before. We made a quick trip to Armstrong 3 weeks ago, made an offer on a house and it got scooped from under us. As soon as we got back home my wife had a full hip replacement. I am head care giver for awhile. Technicly we are now homeless! I am trying to get stuff packed also. Once we get a new home I hope to have time to go to some of the meets.
I found that there are at least 4 or 5 other makes of these type of uints.

For those of you that have access to a Sams Club or Costco, they both had them for a while. I believe one was a Phillips and not sure what the other one was. Maybe an Audio Vox. The 7" was around $250. At one time, one of them had a larger one (a 10" ?) but it was around $350. Still, not all that bad.

Now I know why I held off installing a stereo in the trailer, I was waiting for this combination unit. I want one! I want one!

Thanks for the heads up.

Same here ken, I was thinking of installing the AM/FM/Sterio player but when I priced them out here they were $385 Can. Those units are a much better value for your dollar.
Man, I will be gald when we can get out of this town, we pay through the nose for everthing!

The data sheet for the Philips model says it wants 12v input. Hmmm. There might be the possibility of making up a 12v plug. Can't find where it says how many amps it wants, however. Still, it looks like a nice unit.

I wonder if there is a way to secure the screen during travel so it won't shake all over the place, possibly loosening it.

Steve;
I wanted my Sharp LCDTV to use 12v directly to avoid inverter losses and the buzzy waveforms from the converter. It did not come with a 12v cable, just a brick. I checked with Sharp and they confirmed that 12v and up to 14v or so would work fine.
The problem was to make up a cable, which I did, but not before searching high and low for the correct little plug going into the TV. Found it at Radio Shock eventually, but it seems there are several variations on the same theme and the plugs look almost the same. By the way, I have junked the cigarette-lighter type 12v outlets (horrors) for some Speakon plugs.
