Power Consumption: AppleTV vs. GoogleTV
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.
