That's not true of the newer plasmas, LCDs have also increased in power usage in many cases due to adding other functionality. My new LG plasma and a Sony LCD are within 10W of each other under load according to my Killawatt device. The newer plasmas are much thinner now too and have more attractive bezel designs, if you saw my LG from the side you could easily confuse it for an LCD. I think it weighs roughly 50 pounds though so that removes a lot of female shoppers from the equation. It's a middle market plasma at best so I wasn't expecting much but it blows our other TVs out of the water in terms of picture quality.
