Energy-hungry television sets will soon be banned across California in a landmark move by state legislators to reduce energy consumption.

The state will be the first in the US to impose a mandatory energy curb on TVs, an often-overlooked power drain.

This is ultimately a good thing. It saves people money. Too bad people will still find a way to complain. :)

Plasma TVs are insane on the power bill, nobody that has one has a right to complain about how much they have to pay for it.

I remember playing SFA3 on a plasma and I can't say enough it was a hell of a fun experience. Sad to see them on the way out as I have no money at this point to afford it. Hope LED takes off.
