If you are considering a new television, you are probably wondering whether to get an LCD or plasma set. You may have personal reasons for choosing one over the other, but in terms of energy consumption LCD uses less electricity than a plasma. An average plasma uses 338 watts compared with 176 watts for the average LCD. Of course, size does matter when it comes to power consumption-the larger the television, the more it costs financially and environmentally. CNET Reviews has a power consumption comparison chart to help you decided between brands and styles at http://reviews.cnet.com/green-tech/tv-consumption-chart/?tag=contentMain;contentAux.
