HDTV Power Consumption Charted For Your Pleasure

Illustration for article titled HDTV Power Consumption Charted For Your Pleasure

CNET's hired an intern to type up power consumption stats for loads of their recently reviewed TVs into a large table, which conveniently enough is now sortable. If you're in the market for a new HDTV, head over to their big-ass chart to see who the winner is in overall annual cost (Envision), cost per square inch (Samsung) and cheapest over 60 inches (Sony). Even if you're not going to buy a TV now, you can still take away the fact that running an HDTV will cost you—on average—somewhere between $50-ish to $150-ish. [CNET]

DISCUSSION

I have a 32" HDTV CRT set that uses around 100 watts of power when on. I guess this is one more reason to not buy a new TV. The other reason is that I don't have any money anyway. But, the main reason I am not buying is due to power use. Yeah .. That's it.
