    I thought I posted that, it was 125W (pretty steady as I recall) for the LCD, and 425-450 for the plasma, it bounced around a bit based on program material.

    Yah mine is between 390-400.

    Just to help people, using your LCD 125W and my Plasma 400W if electricity cost $0.11 a kiloWattHour:

    If both are run 24 hours a day for a 31 day month: LCD $10.23 - Plasma $32.74

    You're forgetting the A/C load in the summer to get rid of that 1500 BTU of heat from the plasma. :D

    My power averages around 15.5 cents/kwhr, so it costs me more.

    Nope. Even without A/C vents in my basement it's way too cold. The plasma is down here so it works out perfect. Two birds with one stone.
