Philips Goes Green With "Best Of CES" ECO TV
Each year CNET gives out its "Best Of CES" awards and this year's best TV of the show was the Philips ECO FlatTV (the 42PFL5603D). You might wonder how Philips pulled it off. After all, Philips isn't exactly the premier name in high-def televisions, and Panasonic's 150 inch behemoth as well as Sony and Samsung's OLED displays were a little more eye-catching. But "green" is in.
The Philips ECO TV, part of the company's Green Flagship product line, has been independently certified as being up to 10% more efficient than other LCD's its size. At 42 inches, with 1080p resolution, the ECO TV saves energy by regulating the use of its backlight. It has a built-in sensor that actually measures the rooms ambient lighting, adjusting the amount of light emitted from the backlight, not only saving energy but resulting in a better picture on the screen. Definitely the best of/for both worlds!
Expect the ECO TV to hit shelves in March for $1399.
