Samsung UN55ES8000 LED LCD HDTV Review$3,749.00
- Power Consumption
As you can see from the chart below, the UN55ES8000 is a little more expensive per year than LG's mid-range 47LM6700, but will cost less to operate annually than the other two comps. The C7000 is from back in 2009, which is a good example of the steps Samsung has taken to allow their TVs to continue to "do more" while costing less; it's a good sign. Plasmas tend to consume more power per year than LCDs, and the chart below illustrates that point.
The average user who gives this TV about 4-6 hours of use a day will end up spending roughly $18-20 per year powering it. Compared to the energy consumption of an Xbox 360 or a PS3, this is pretty cheap.
