CES: A green TV snags Best in Show

My colleagues over at our sister site, CNET, announced their Best of CES winners, with Philips new Eco TV snagging the top prize. Expected to hit retail outlets in March, the 42-inch, 1080p set will list at $1,399, and as the name suggests, incorporates a variety of energy-conserving features, including dimming the backlight during darker scenes (which David Katzmaier points out, provides the dual benefit of improving black-level performance).

Though I worry a bit about companies trying to slap the green label on everything they sell, Philips is walking the walk here -- an in-booth demo showed the set's power consumption to be roughly 75 watts - a bit higher than an incandescent bulb (and significantly lower than the average LCD, and even lower still than power-hogging plasma sets).
