And speaking of power: older CRTs vs. LCD is also a no-contest issue.

Reality does not always match theory. Last October I replaced my 22 year old
'26"' Mitsubishi CRT TV with a same screen height 31.5" Vizio LCD 1080p HDTV.
I metered both in in-use state for several hours. The LCD uses almost exactly
50% more than the CRT, while the actual exposed screen area is only about 41%
more.
