Hitachi Releases a White Flat Screen LCD TV; Signals Trend in White in Electronics

Would You Buy a White TV?

I might need a new TV. Yesterday Apartment Therapy highlighted this gorgeous Hitachi LCD ultraslim flat-panel television. Not only do I have a crush on the white frame, but also I'm excited for this trend in electronics. The iPhone 3G, the MacBook, now TVs . . . what's next?

I believe the trend can be attributed to Apple — the iPod remained clothed in its iconic white for a few years (I once read in Domino that Apple wouldn't surrender its formula for the specific shade of white).

We were accustomed to that yucky beige for years, and then everything seemed to trend black, and now we're finally seeing more clean, colorless white. You know how I feel about it; how do you?

Love white electronics although at the moment my flat screen is black however that was a gift so I'm not going to b****,lol. Given the option I would choose either white or silver.

I love love LOVE white electronics. I had a while cell phone a few years back and I loved it more because of its color than anything else. If this is becoming a trend, then I'm all for it. Every time I like something (laptop, cellphone) my first thought is if it comes in white. They usually don't, so I settle for silver. Not a fan of black electronics at all.

The white TV itself is pretty, but it's so much harder to make it match te rest of your decor nicely than a black or silver TV.

Cool post! i have all white furniture and electronics in my home, and it sounds so bland at first, but when guests see it, it looks much bolder in person! good job, geek!

I wouldn't get a white TV. The colors on TV pop out more when placed next to a shiny black frame. I'm all about performance and picture quality rather than the color of my gadgets.

No way. If I didn't have to buy one then I wouldn't. I like black a lot better.

"Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black." - Henry Ford I'm pretty tired of that school of electronic design. :) I'm going more and more for white electronics, rather than beige, grey, and black... function still trumps design, though. I'd totally go for a white TV.

I love white electronics, although I prefer it for my computers and decor rather than my television.

I only go for the industry leader, thats Pioneer, and they have SHIRO (Japanese-White) version of the best TV in the market -KURO. So, Shiro-Kuro would be my dream come true :)
