LED televisions

I just bought one for my home, and was surprised at the low energy usage. Personally, I don't keep a tv in the camper (want the kids outside playing). But I was wondering if anyone has looked at LED tv's as an option for an RV?

I have a 22" LED in both front and rear bedroom of my RV and a 24" mounted in my cargo bay. I also plan on replacing the 32" RCA LCD that came from the factory with a 40" Samsung LED closer to the holidays (when they are on their lowest price of the year sale.)
We have several LED's in our home and HD satelite service at our camper and spend quite a bit of time wathcing tv while we're there.

We have a LED tv in the bunkhouse for rainy days. It is so light and non substantial, it felt like a dummy demo vs a real working unit when we got it out of the box. Hooked to dh's old skool ps2 it's great for either a game night or a family DVD.
Eta, it has also come in handy to keep the kids safely occupied when either dh or I needed to do something that wasn't a kid friendly activity like heavy duty yard work at our seasonal site.

We bought an inexpensive 19" LED TV last year for our TT and it is great. They use little energy and are very light weight. TV's are good to have for those rainy days and local news and weather.

The best thing is the light weight. Screen size per weight is also nice.

Got this one from Westinghouse. It's going into the rear bunk area and will be mounted to the wall with an extendable bracket. I have also bought a second bracket to allow it to disconnect easily so it can be mounted in the basement if we so desire.

I like the idea about the LED's especially in the camper. I think that it's bound to be a little more rugged than the CFL counterparts. Not sure if it's any lighter, but it is pretty light.
