Toshiba introduced a TV that uses no standby power. It incorporates an Eco-Chip that stores enough power to respond to the remote and still provide an "instant-on" experience while using no standby "Vampire" power.
Toshiba's Regza 32BE3 television, which will debut mid-December, includes a so-called "Eco Chip" that prevents the 32-inch HDTV from drawing any AC power after you mash off the power button on its remote.
Toshiba says its 32-inch Regza uses only 45kWh of power per year, 27 percent less than its 32-inch predecessor, the Regza 32A2, primarily thanks to its LED backlighting. LED-backlit LCDs are the most efficient TVs available today. Plasma screens, by comparison, use two to three times more power than an LCD to deliver an image of equal brightness.
