If you’re in the market for a new TV that is cheap and green, Sceptre has a new product that fits the bill. The TV is called the X409BV-FHD and falls into the 40-inch category, but has a 38.5-inch viewable image. The set is compliant with the stringent Energy Star 5.3 guidelines so it costs only about $14 a year to run. The TV also has other important features to go along with the energy efficiency.
The set features Auto Dynamic Contrast Enhancement to provide better details in dim locations and low-light conditions on-screen. The set has three HDMI ports and a single USB port. The aspect ratio 16:9 widescreen and it has a 60 Hz frame rate. The frame rate is low by today’s standards where 120 Hz is often the norm.
The contrast ratio is 5000:1 and the set supports full HD resolution. The panel response time is 8.5 ms and the TV has three common integrated tuners. The TV has integrated simulated surround sound and the neck and base is detachable so the TV can be wall-mounted. Shoppers can pick the set up a Target, Walmart, Sears, and other retail and online locations for $399.99.
