The Energy Efficiency of Samsung Televisions

In January 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Samsung for allegedly misrepresenting the energy efficiency of its televisions. Specifically, the complaint claims that Samsung televisions have ENERGYGUIDE labels and the ENERGY STAR® logo indicating that the televisions meet ENERGY STAR® program standards for energy efficiency when, in reality, the televisions are programmed to disable energy-saving features when consumers adjust the default picture settings. In addition, the complaint claims that Samsung tailored energy-saving features to reduce energy usage during testing and not in real world conditions. (Coghlan et al v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-715, S. D. NY.)
