NEC Goes for the Gold (Rating) with Eco-Friendly E231W LED Monitor
"NEC is committed to continuing its strong leadership role within the industry by contributing to a greener environment with an eco-friendly display in the quickly-growing 23-inch category," said Lynn Gu, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "The Multisync E231W uses an LED-backlit panel to increase energy savings by up to 40 percent in comparison to conventional CCFL-backlit LCD monitors. This is especially beneficial for our business customers in this economic downturn."
Essentially a larger version of the 22-inch E222W, the E231W sports a Full HD (1920x1280) 16:9 widescreen LED panel; 25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio; 4-way ergonomic stand with 110mm height adjustment, tilt, swivel, and pivot; ECO Mode and ambient light sensor; Intelligent Power Management (IPM) system and off timer; 5 preset modes (standard, text, movie, game, photo); and a multi-direction OSD NaViKey.
For you green types, the E231W boasts a number of environmentally friendly badges, including EPEAT Gold, Energy Star 5.0, and TCO 5.0 compliance, as well as a carbon footprint meter.
The MultiSync E231W will ship later this month for around $300.
