Power Consumption: AppleTV vs. GoogleTV

leave a comment »

A simple experiment – plugged in the new AppleTV and two GoogleTV devices – Sony Blu-Ray Player & Logitech Revue one at a time in the Kill A Watt EZ. I measured the watts consumed while running a video application like YouTube and Netflix. Here are the results:

With Google TV:

Sony Blu-ray Player:    13.5 to 14.0 Watts, around 17 Watts when playing a DVD

Logitech Revue:           12.8 to 13.0 Watts, while playing Netflix or YouTube videos

AppleTV:                       1.7 to 2.0 Watts

Attaching pictures created from videos (as opposed to taking with my Canon 20D), slightly blurry, will update them soon.
