Toshiba 42SL417U LED LCD HDTV Review$899.00
- Power Consumption
The Toshiba 42SL417U arrives with an Energy Star sticker right on the front and it certainly deserves it. At the minimum recommended backlight setting it would cost only $12.69, approximately. Even at maximum backlight it's only $17.28 per year.
That compares very favorably to last year's Toshiba 46XV648U and the Samsung LN46D550, both LCDs like the Toshiba 42SL417U. The Panasonic TC-P42X3 is a plasma, which typically require more power, though the X3 was particularly power efficient.
