Shodan you say your LCD uses less energy than Gib's plasma which you agree has better picture quality. According to that chart Toss3 posted you are saving about $98.39 a year going with a tv that you agree has worse picture quality. That's about $8.20 a month you are saving. I would have went for the tv with the better picture quality if I could have afforded it.
Well if you pay the electric bill yourself you should care, especially if you are a student. I learned to shut off the lights after me pretty quickly after I moved out.. But that doesn't really matter in this case as a calibrated plasma(or even one running in eco mode)uses almost the same amount of electricity as an equally sized lcd(which you notice if you compare the pz800 and pz85).
