No joke there. I was stunned / disgusted at how much power the '90's fridge used. The problem is that fridges tend to last a long time and there is no obvious sign that they waste a lot of power.

Well, a new fridge beat an older fridge. I should check back in a year to see if the 2010 fridge maintains this level of efficiency.

I've now got a mid '90's vintage 27" CRT Television plugged into the Kill-A-Watt. I'm curious to see how much power the old TV is eating.
