From these figures, apart from helping the environment, considerable cash savings on electricity costs would be made by users changing to TFT Monitors. Would any members care to make some calculations on the actual annual £'s saved based x hours use???
Thanks for that, worked out that the cost for the CRT Monitor at 5 hours per day = £1.138 per month.
Working on a pro-rata basis a TFT @ say 40 watt cost would be £0.330 per month.
Therefore the TFT would save per annum £13.656 minus £3.96 = £9.69 per annum. Not as much saving as I anticipated. But for large users with many monitors running long hours then it would be considerable. It would also make the working area much cooler.
Continuing to use a CRT monitor rather than buying a new TFT which has to be constructed then shipped from Korea/wherever would be far more environmentally friendly by a huge amount. However looking at the fuel the shuttle now being filled with maked me wonder if it's worth bothering.
They always forget that factor, It works for Cars also. Keeping a old banger running is better for the environment than making a new one, and it's still as to cover the same miles as the old one would have to do that was replaced, at only a bit less fuel saved
