For $1,500 NuVision will create any colored bezel you want
Mirrored televisions are a bit of a niche market. They're made for those rooms where it's more about the look than the function, or for people who are a little less enthusiastic about showing off their TVs. When not in use, the sets take on mirror-like properties, disguising themselves as mere decor.
The frame can be a bit of a giveaway though. If you've got a room designed around a certain color theme, the 55" black framed mirror on the wall may look a little out of place. Sure, black goes with everything, but that doesn't mean it's always the best choice.
To solve the problem, NuVision is offering custom colors for your new 55" FX5 television. It's only available for the one model right now, and at an upcharge of $1,499. It's a pretty slick setup though.
If you've got a particular Pantone color you want, or if you've got a paint sample or fabric swatch, NuVision can match it. Send it in, order the TV, and 14 days later you've got a brand new set with a custom bezel.
Is it worth $1,500? That depends on you. It'd be nice to see other companies manufacturing finishes other than glossy black though.
