Nice choice. While I prefer Samsung, that set you bought is equivalent to the 5-Series. It seems to have gotten solid reviews at AVSForums, and it aesthetically pleasing. You'll enjoy it

But they use too much electricity versus the Sammy lcd's sizewise,which turned me off on it.

Yes they have a higher peak draw, but remember this:

With an LCD, the backlight is always on and therefore it draws the same amount of power all the time. With a plasma, the power draw varies with what's being displayed. Darker images-less draw, bright images-more draw. Average out the draw on a plasma, and it's only a tad higher than an LCD (assuming you don't have it set to torch mode).
Here's a very good list comparing the power consumption of many lcd and plasma screens(note that all of the TVs were tested with the default settings):

Who give's a rats ass how much energy they use? It's all about picture quality.
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).
