That includes all of its major television models sold in Japan, which earned a five-star rating in the country’s Energy-Saving Rating Program. Almost off personal computers there met the government’s energy efficiency requirements.

All Sony BRAVIA liquid crystal display (LCD) televisions sold in Europe consume less than 1-watt in standby mode, with most models consuming less than .3 watts. All DVD players use less than .1 watts in standby mode.
