Because now and then I wind up in a discussion about power consumption of random electronics I decided to measure the power needs of some random appliances around the house. These are the results:
|On / Powered||Standby / Sleep|
|19” CRT monitor||85W||0W|
|17” CRT monitor||37W||1W|
|@Home Digital Cable Decoder||6W||6W|
|CRT TV 59cm (23”)||60W||6W|
|LCD TV 26” (66cm)||112W||1W|
Please note that these are just an indication, a similar device you own might have different power needs but this gives you an idea at least. Also the TV’s I measured are relatively old (CRT, 15 years, the LCD 7 years) and modern LCD TV’s use less power but are bigger (so the Watts per inch are lower but the total power usage is larger).
