They say brown is the new black. Or maybe it’s red this season? No matter. You can choose whichever hue strikes your fancy—at least when it comes to your TV—thanks to a new color match service offered by NuVision.
Available on both standard and mirrored versions of NuVision’s FX collection of LED LCD TVs (40-, 46-and 55-inch), the service lets you pick out a color for the TV bezel that will complement your room décor. Hot pink, sky blue, mustard yellow … the options are endless.
And actually, speaking of hot pink, we’ve seen this color before from NuVision, in that case for the very worthy cause of breast cancer awareness.
You simply send NuVision a paint sample, fabric swatch or identify a Pantone color, and they’ll make a bezel to match. It takes 14 days to make the bezel, and you’ll pay an extra $1,499 on top of the price of the TV ($5,999 for the regular 55-inch LCD TV; $7,499 for a 55-inch display that doubles as a mirror), but it may be worth it to have a display that doesn’t detract from the room design.
The 55-inch mirror TV (55FX5LSM) is one on NuVision’s latest additions. It functions as a mirror when it’s turned off, giving you another decorative option.
Available in June, it has all of the performance features of the other FX TVs, including 120Hz processing; 1080p high-def imaging; digital switching deep black (DSDB) which adjusts the LCD backlight according to the images being displayed; and frame forward motion which give the LCD panel extremely fast response times for clear fast motion sports and action movies. All of the LED TVs in the line are also extremely energy efficient, consuming less power than most other TVs.
