Polaroid flat-screen TVs are available on Amazon. They range in size from 19'' to 50'', with standard features such as HDMI input and LED backlighting. Polaroid TVs are labeled energy efficient, claiming to save an average of $6 annually versus other flat screen TVs. The TVs are also significantly lighter than the average flat screen, with the 18.5 inch model weighing only 6lb.

Polaroid received a lot of criticism for their failure to provide helpful and effective customer support.
