Energy consumption TVs and monitors
Compare TV and monitor power consumption

FlatpanelsHD has developed an interactive applet that enables you to compare power consumption on all the flat panel TVs and monitors tested here at FlatpanelsHD.

Compare energy consumption

The list is updated monthly in order to include all current TVs and monitors that have been measured by our team of testers. So check back in regularly to find new additions to the list or bookmark this article in your browser.
You can find all our reviews here.

Calculate your energy costs

We have updated the applet with a new feature recently that lets you calculate your annual TV or monitor energy costs.

By default, the kWh price is set to 2.2 and daily consumption to 4 hours which is average in many countries today. You can adjust the kWh price and daily usage at the bottom.



You need the latest flash-plugin to view this example. Download here

We have included a normalization value of the power specifications in terms of"power consumption / area" which makes it easier to compare data on different sizes.

How we measure

Every time we test TVs or monitors we include an energy consumption measurement based on the same test scenes. We take several measurements and calculate an average value afterwards.

Out-of-box measurement is done without changing the picture setting options ion the menus.

Measurement in calibrated mode is the energy consumption with our calibrated settings.

Stand-by measurement is the energy consumption in stand-by mode when the TV or monitor is turned off by the remote control.
