Power Consumption Testing
Now we come to probably one of the most important sections of our testing and that is power consumption!
Using the power tester you can see in the picture above, we measured power coming from the wall - it is measuring the full system, everything inside the box.
We used prime95 to fully load the CPU processor cores and a score was recorded after five minutes of loading. We recorded the highest wattage level hit. An idle wattage level was recorded after staying idle on the desktop for five minutes.
Not only is the ViewSonic VOT132 small, but it is also green! As you can see by the numbers above, ViewSonic excels here and offers the best power wattage numbers in all areas. At the lowest point, we noted the system using only 16.9 watts of power!
As far as heat and noise goes, there are good things to note here, too. The system runs whisper quiet as you saw on the video and is hardly audible. As far as heat goes, the system gets a little warm on both sides of the unit near where the CPU and chipset is located, but not hot. There is a little heat generated on one side of the unit where the HDD is located, but it was really only luke warm. We didn't experience any stability issues whilst testing the VOT132.
Boot Time Testing
We measured using a stopwatch and timed from the point we turned the system on until the very first point the desktop was reached and fully loaded.
Same type of story here again as we saw on the last few pages. The ViewSonic VOT132 isn't a speedster.
