How much per month would you say it costs to run it?
How many hours per day is yours on?

  • No clue how much it costs to run it and I would say our TV is on probably 15 hours a day

  • not sure about the cost to run it, but ours is on MAYBE 3hrs a weekday, 5-6 hrs a day on weekends, since dh is home...our electric isn't that high though. we bought ours in '10, not sure if it's that year though...

  • Mine is in the masterbedroom. So we do not use it everyday. Cost to run, don't know.

  • Our electric bill actually went down when we got ours and it's on for about two hours a day. Maybe three or four on weekends.

  • I ran an online watts per hour calculator and the model in question would cost $1.07 per day with an average of 15 hours per day usage
    The argument was over whether or not plasma costs more to use than an LCD
