Who use that switch anyway :) newest TVs have a very little if at all energy consumption if on standby :)

Little, but still some.

It certainly would not be a deal breaker.

This makes no sense. Why would it not come with an on/off button? That should be the first thing any manufacturer writes down on a piece of paper when making a TV.

But most don't now. They only come with stand-by buttons. At least read the article.

I did. No matter how little power it uses, it's still more than none.

techie2369d ago

Yep... but there used to on off switches that would actually turn the damn thing off. They just don't exist anymore
