Vizio VO47L LCD HDTV Review
The VO47L manages something of a tightrope act; keeping the price down, while still producing decent quality.
At a cost of $37.40 per year for power the Vizio VO47L's power consumption is just above average. We test power consumption by setting the screen's brightness to 200 cd/m2, a level that is good for watching in dark or lit conditions. We play back a standard sequence and get an average power use of six minutes. As with all LCDs how high you set the backlight will have a significant impact on your power consumption. You can see below that setting it to maximum pushes your annual cost up to $60.67. This assumes watching five hours of television a day and uses the average national cost for electricity. For this reason we recommend that you keep LCD displays at the lowest backlight setting you find comfortable.
