The LG 32LH20's power consumption was very low, as you might expect from such a small HDTV. Calibrating the screen to a peak brightness of 200 cd/m2 we found the 32LH20 used an average of 60.9 watts of power in our test. Below you can see the results with the backlight turned all the way up and all the way down, as well as our estimates for annual operational cost.
