If its 210w when its in standby mode I wouldnt buy it. but it could be because they are 32-55" monitors but it just doesnt seem right. they could be hiding the fact that it eats a lot of power in standby mode because they havent really made it clear enough when they say "as low as 210w"

my NEC EA231WMi eats 2watts on standby (according to specs)

It's highly unlikely that a TV takes 210w in standby (off). It would never sell.

it means 210W when in use, on standard settings.

they're covering their asses because the power consumption may be higher if you turn the brightness/contrast up, or in other regions (240v vs 110v mains power)

Yeah my Toshiba takes 180w according to energy star but i have never seen it past 90w. Although you do have to hit the power button or it will keep taking 90w.

Depends on your lighting if there is a window behind you and all.

I read all these news posts about monitors but never see something that meets my criteria for an upgrade. IPS or anything that will get it above 16 bit, LED backlit, 5ms response at least (I've seen this in newer IPS), 120 Hz just for the heck of it... hdmi and dvi plugs, and decent styling. I'd buy something like that in 1080p for $400 in a 21inch. I'd pay $500 if they upped the res but kept the 16:9 aspect. I think manufacturers would find that if instead of shaving off every cent they focused more on just making something perfect they might get better sales, maybe improve their whole brand recognition by being considered the place to go to for the best of the best. That applies to just about any tech product.
