Power Consumption

As an LED-edgelit television, the Sharp LC-40LE810UN ought to draw less power than one that uses CCFL tubes as a backlight. It does, in fact, stack up, costing a mere $15.49 to power yearly (assuming a 5-hour day). Some LED-lit TVs don't live up to the energy-saving claim, but this Sharp does.

Below, we've compiled a chart of comparable TVs and their yearly upkeep costs. The main factor in determining their energy needs is generally the size of the screen, since a larger screen means more lighting. The comparison models range from 37 to 42 inches, and their cost of maintenance steps up accordingly. However, the Sharp LC-40LE810UN is the cheapest of all of them, including a smaller LG.
