    Anybody any ideas?
    Thanks
     
  2. LEDs are the way forward. However an LED tv is still an LCD screen backlit by LEDs whereas an LCD tv is an LCD screen backlit by florescent tubes.
    LEDs are thinner lighter and more sexy. In a few years LCD tvs will go the way of Plasma tvs.

    I worked it out for a couple of TVs last year and it was six of one half etc Considering the increased price, depth, efficiency, blah blah, I went by picture and bought a plasma.

    So the calculation would be
    140
    x7
    /1000
    x9.492
    =
    9.30216p per day
    So a TV that operates at 70w would cost 4.65108p per day
    This would give a yearly saving of £16,98
    Thanks for the advice.
     
  5. To digress slightly, I'm looking to get a new TV (we still have an old CRT type; I'm clueless about the latest technologies), so I'd be grateful if anyone could advise, LED/LCD, 50Hz/100Hz, which brands to avoid etc.
