Default VIZIO D43-D2 D-Series 43" 1080p 120Hz

After reading a lot of good reviews, I found this for a good price at Walmart.
Anyways, the Energy guide label at the Walmart site is for a larger TV: 55" or 59" @75.4kWh..

This 43" set only uses 51.8 kWh per year..
Based on 12 cents per KWH and 5 hours per day, cost is $6 per year.
Based on our usage and rate, I'm going to guess 12 to 15 bucks a year..

This is going to be a lot better than the old 42" Plasma TV that used over 400w on average..
The Den Mini-split used about 400w on average over the last 18 hours (7.2 kWh). (OD Temperature chart below).

Yeah, I don't need to be running a TV that uses as much power as a M/S.!.
We will save a few bucks on power, but going from ED to HD is really nice.
I can read the fine print on this new TV.. 1080i is okay!

In case you've never heard of EDTV..
