Did anyone else see about Vizio launching their ECO TV? Looks interesting. If I can be eco-smart and have a good tv, I can always use a new excuse to buy another tv. Interested to see how the lower power output effects the processing, etc.

(can't post links yet, but it was on Engadget HD)

Not sure, but one has to wonder if it's not just marketing hype since most new sets have power save mode that you can enable or disable.

Here's the picture of it, I don't like it, I like the the black frame better: http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/11/08/vizios-500-32-inch-ecohd-lcd-tv-gets-pictured/
It's only 500 bucks, but it must be 720p.

Yeah the white is too much. Guess they are trying to capture the Apple crowd?

As you say, looks sort of like an ipod version of a flatscreen, but Vizio just released the Java too, so maybe they are trying to expand their "look". Hell, it worked for Apple, so I don't blame them. Nice idea though.

Anyone know when this is going to be available?! I was going to buy one for my sister who was interested and I went to three different places that sell Vizio's and couldn't find it anywhere. Maybe, I'll just go ahead and get her one of the 37" 1080p's but she was all psyched over the "Eco" part and the white bezel so was hoping to find this one.

I figured at least over Black Friday it would have been around..
