Power Consumption*(8.31)*


For a large TV, the Bravia KDL-52XBR9 doesn't suck down a lot of juice; at our standard setting (where we measure the screen brightness to be 200 cd/m2), we found that this display would cost about $33.76 a year to run for an average of 5 hours a day. That's a pretty good figure, especially when compared with some others, such as the slightly bigger Vizio VF550XVT that would cost over $50 a year. But watch out for the backlight level; if you crank the backlight up to maximum to get the maximum brighness level, the cost rises to $58.71 a year.

Setting Average Watts Cost per Year
Backlight 2 172 $33.76
Backlight Maximum 300 $58.71
Backlight Minimum 133 $26.09
