Arguably the most refined plasma TV, the Panasonic TC-PZT60, consumed over 359 watts when professionally calibrated. Earlier models were upwards of 400 watts.150 watt incandescent bulb eats 150 watts. Same in LED form....18-25 watts.
Well, Sadly, we lost one of the 42" Pioneer Elites this week.My 60" Kuro I sold to friends and is running fine and my Bedroom TV is the 42" Kuro version and has been running fine.
No need to replace that till I need another TV somewhere.
