Very High Running Costs

This mid-size TV has an energy efficiency classification of C. The 32LK450 has an average running cost of £132 over 5 years based on average energy prices, which is in the most expensive 20% of all 714 mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UE46ES8000, or the UN46ES8000 both from Samsung or the Philips 48PFS8109 is also worth considering.
