Electricity use 60 inch LCD vs 35 inch CRT?


I have heard that LCD televisions don't pull/burn nearly the juice that a CRT type TV does, is this true?

I have a Toshiba 35" CRT type TV and am thinking about getting a new Sony in the 60" range, I was wondering what the cost difference would be in electricity?

Every electrical appliance will state on it how many watts it uses. Compare your CRT tv with the models you're considering for a replacement.

I sort of doubt you can justify that kind of upgrade by telling your wife that it'll save you money though. :p Even a power-hog of a TV only uses about $25 worth of electricity in a whole year!

Here's a link that might help. It compares the power consumption of a bunch of new sets.

A Sony 60" LCD flat panel uses 190 watts. Not bad actually!

You should think also about the heat the CRT generates.
LCD are much cooler at this.


So, go for LCD.
