Pioneer, Hitachi and Panasonic Plasmas are now Energy Star Certified


There was a time when the term plasma TVs meant expensive and power hungry electronic, but those days are fading. Three of the largest players in the plasma world now have Energy Star Certified models which is a big feat. This means that a 42-inch PDP cannot consume more than 208 watts while on and less than a watt in standby mode. LCD were once the champion of tree-hugging hippies, but they shouldn’t have to  suffer with the lower quality picture now that plasmas have the Energy Star Certification.
