Televisions last updated: July 2017

Criteria

Televisions are divided into four sub-categories, by screen size:

  • Less than 32 inches
  • 32-39 inches
  • 40-49 inches
  • 50-59 inches

In order to be featured on Topten, televisions must comply with Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1062/2010 with regard to energy labelling of televisions, and comply with the following criteria:

  • Screen size up to 49 inches: have an Energy Efficiency Index of 0.16 ≤ EEI< 0.23 (corresponding to the A+ label class) and an on-mode power consumption no greater than 70W (corresponding to an A-class 40inch set)
  • Screen size above 50 inches: have an Energy Efficiency Index ranking of 0.16 ≤ EEI< 0.23 (corresponding to the A+ label class), an on-mode power consumption no greater than 90W and a screen size no greater than 59 inches.

Glossary

Annual energy consumption: energy consumption per year in kWh, based on manufacturers’ declarations.

Automatic brightness control: whether the television adjusts its brightness automatically according to ambient light levels.

Energy Efficiency Index: the basis for the determination of the energy efficiency class: the lower the value, the more efficient the television.

Energy label: the energy efficiency class according to the EU energy label. At present four different labelling systems are in use for televisions: see the Product Guide for Televisions for further information.

HD Ready: TVs that have a resolution of 1280 x 720 or 1366 x 728 pixels.

Full HD: TVs that have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

4K/Ultra-High Definition: TVs that have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.

Power in use: power in “on” mode in watts, according to IEC 62087:2011.

Resolution: the maximum resolution of the screen in pixels.

Screen size: the diagonal size of the display in inches.

Similar models: models from the same manufacturer of the same size and with similar specification.

Smart TV: whether the product has an internet connection and applications for browsing the internet and streaming content.

Standby power: power in “standby” mode in watts, according to IEC 62087:2011.
