Not only has Samsung repeatedly topped the charts with its sales these past few years, we've recently found out that they've also made great strides in producing greener and more efficient sets. Case in point is their latest "Red Touch of Color" line of televisions, where their 55-inch LCD HDTV model manages to consume a mere 150 watts of power (comparable to normal 32-inch televisions of today). Hopefully this helps encourage other TV makers to follow suit by adding a touch of "green" to their electronics as well.
Samsung was recently rated an excellent 7/10 on the Greenpeace scale, quite impressive compared to many other electronic manufacturers out there *cough Nintendo*.
Specs wise, it is right up there with the other high definition sets: 120Hz, 1080p resolution, a 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 4 HDMI ports and even an ethernet connection for weather and RSS feeds. But what really differentiates this set from that wall of screens that hits you when you walk into your local big box is the subtle red fade around the edge. A nice touch indeed, but unforunately that's the only color they've decided to add to these television sets.
Grab them for $480-$2580 at Amazon.
