Re: LCD TVs: LEDs vs CFL
I've read recently that the plasma manufacturers have gotten serious about power consumption because of the bad name they had in that regard, and are now dong much better in that area. Time for the rest of them to do the same, especially the LED units should be able to do much better, especially when the brightness is reduced. For starters, dim the LEDs instead of driving them wide open and blocking the light with the LCD when we select a dimmer screen. Reminds me of where I once worked. In winter they turned up the electric heat to the max, then controlled the temperature with the AC and wondered why the power bill was so high. DUH!
