If Bender and his shiny metal butt ever decided to buy a new HDTV, this full chrome set from Sceptre would be what he would get. The frame, stand, and surfaces of the TV are all clad in shiny chrome. The upside is that you can always see who is walking up behind you. The downside is any sunlight hitting the thing might set your eyebrows on fire like a magnifying glass to an ant.

Underneath that shiny chrome surface sits a pretty darn good HDTV/PC display. The set has a 16:9 aspect ratio and supports full 1080p video. When used as a PC display the screen supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 and measures 24-inches. It can show 16.7 million colors and has a 4000:1 contrast ratio.

Brightness for the screen is 300 cd/m2 and it has 3W speakers built-in and sports S/PDIF output along with USB 2.0 input. Connectivity includes a pair of HDMI ports, composite, component, DVI, and VGA. HDCP is supported for Blu-ray playback as well. The chrome TV is available on Newegg and at retail locations like Target and Sears for $399. If you don't like the product, you can bite my shiny metal butt.
