A co-worker lent me a plug-in power meter and I spent an evening measuring stuff...
|100Mbit switch|| ||5W/11VA|
|WY-60 terminal|| ||25W/44VA|
|Sun Sparcstation LX|| ||37W/63VA|
|14" CRT monitor|| ||60W/100VA|
|17" TFT monitor||2W/7VA||39W/66VA|
|PC: Athlon 1.5GHz||4W/11VA||110W/170VA|
|electric "tube" heater|| ||220W/220VA|
I was slightly surprised to see that the TV/hi-fi/etc in the living room consume 34W in total when they're not actually doing anything.
