  • Plasma TVs may be banned.

    Most plasma television sets are in danger of being banned from sale in Australia if a proposed energy-efficiency rating system is adopted.
    A report commissioned by the Federal Government says there is a growing demand for plasma and LCD televisions, which use more power than traditional TV sets.
    It says energy rating labels are needed to tell consumers about the performance of the TVs.
    But under a proposed six-star rating system, most current plasma TVs do not meet the requirements and could be removed from sale.
    The report also suggests "minimum energy performance standards" be introduced which would eliminate the worst performing TVs.
    It would mean all current plasma TVs and many LCDs could be removed from sale by 2011
    clicky for story

    What a crock of shit. Concentrate on energy efficency for industry.

    LOL

    I think they may have their facts mixed up. LCDs are far more efficient than traditional CRT televisions.
    If you can... you MUST!

                    Just incase you ever had doubts as to why one may require such a PSU.

                      Yeah my mate has a 900w PSU in his machine (Q6600 and 8800 GT-something top of the range).

                      Suddenly my 550w feels small

                      I don't understand where this stuff has come from tho? Banning big tv's cause they use too much power? Why not ban large air-con units as well

                      OH YOUR AIRCON IS TOO COLD AND USES TOO MUCH POWER, BETTER USE A SMALLER MODEL!

                        Dr Mr Carpenter,

                        Before deciding for me what television I am allowed to purchase, please consider alternative power sources for your desal plant phalic extension.
