Panasonic Viera TC-P65VT50 3D Smart Plasma HDTV Review$3,699.00
- Power Consumption
Panasonic has clearly implemented some energy saving technology into the overall functions of the P65VT50. Looking at the chart below reveals that, on average, using this TV 4-6 hours a day will cost you roughly $20/year. That's not bad at all--compare it to the flagship LCDs we pulled for comparison, or to Panasonic's U50 plasma, a low-end TV that costs more to power per year than the P65VT50. Don't let the X-axis on the chart below fool you, the VT50 only costs three or four dollars more, per year, than Samsung's ES8000.
