Loewe goes green screen

The Art SL from Loewe claims to be its greenest TV to date. Boasting an "Eco Mode", it gives users the ability to manage how energy efficient their TV is. With an "automatic light dimming" feature, the television uses 20% less electricity that the premium mode and it possesses a low standby mode of 0.7 watts. The TV also features an "integrated power switch" which allows the device to be completely disconnected from the mains power supply, thus reducing the standby consumption to zero.

      To justify the hefty price tag, it also has an integrated Freeview-compatible tuner and 250GB hard disk recorder, alond with 2 x 40w speakers.

     Satisfying on all counts, the Art SL is as stylish as it is green. With a strikingly slim exterior combined with fantastic picture and audio quality, the Loewe ART SL makes watching television a real art.

This eco-friendly multi-functional alarm clock is powered
by a clever water replaceable powered battery. With a
digital display mode, the clock has a range of functions
that include the time (obviously), alarm, temperature and

numerous benefits of these over traditional batteries.
