With the intention to appeal customers who, depressed from bad economy news, are conservative towards purchasing a new big-screen TV, U.S. retailers are offering inexpensive secondary TVs in increasing numbers. Quite well equipped, the little ones offset their lack of screen area with extra features. There are 23-inch models with Full HD resolution and LED backlight, sometimes even with an integrated DVD player.
California-based vendor Sceptre also presents a new 23-inch TV for the kitchen and children's rooms. Specialty of the edge-type LED model FHD-E24BV: As a representative of the Galaxy 24 series it features six different housing options, including a metallic blue-gray colouring called gun metal.

Despite the martially titled shade, neither is the price of the Sceptre TV a declaration of war, nor will its features provoke warfare. 400 USD for a Full-HD TV with TN panel, thatís not a bargain. Also, PC connection, HDMI inputs and a USB port, as well as the modest power consumption of maximum 34 watts, will not draw buyers from the woodwork.
Though it is not a disadvantage in the bedroom or bathroom, the LED-enabled slim design of the FHD-E24BV is not a purchase criterion at the end of the day. But maybe the alleged street price of 230 USD is. Sure, there is always a cheaper price in the pre-holiday season price war. But maybe watching economy news on a pink or pearl white TV it makes them seem less depressing.
