JVC LT-32J300 LCD HDTV Review

32 in.

The JVC LT-32J300 is a pretty vanilla set. Other than the USB port, there isn't a lot to draw users in.

Power Consumption*(9.11)*


For our power consumption test, we plug the TV into a wattage meter and record the power draw at various time intervals. We check consumption when the backlight is at its minimum, maximum, and when the screen is displaying 200 candelas per square meter, or cd/m2. Our cost per year measurement assumes on the TV is on five hours a day, which is the national (US) average.

With no backlight on, the TV will only cost you $11.20/year; at 200 /m2, the TV will run you $17.84/year; at full backlight, the TV's yearly rate goes up to $27.66/year. This isn't expensive, probably due to the TV's smallish screen.

One thing to note: the TV will also draw power even when it's turned off. This will add about $0.37 to your total yearly cost.

Setting Average Watts Cost per Year
Backlight: 0 55.47 $11.20
Backlight: 42 89.43 $17.84
Backlight: 100 139.77 $27.66
Television off 0.5 $0.37
