actually you can't categorize differing methods quite that simply. you hadn't even mentioned plasma as most assume plasma is an energy hog, but i saw one with 3d, 600hz refresh, and at 42in that consumed under 100w as well as lcd types that are considerably smaller that are over 150w..

CFL/LCD actually, in general, consume the most power... Plasma and the old picture tube type consume less...

Are you sure this is correct?
My old 32 inches Sony WEGA ( tube) draws around 156 watts, while a new 46 inches Sony EX 710 (LED) consumes around 117.

Yeah, but that's LED.
My 42" Panasonic (LCD with EEFL backlight) uses around 200 watts. Now that I'm looking it up, I do find quite a few plasmas of that size or bigger which use less. Mind you, most of the older ones use significantly more.
