Desktop monitor saves energy, dollars

NEC Display Solutions of America announced today its first LED-backlit desktop monitor, the 22-inch MultiSync EA222WMe, which provides the same amount of brightness as other panel types while using 20 percent less power.

Compared to previous generation NEC LCDs, the EA222WMe consumes up to 52 percent less power, radiates up to 61 percent less heat, weighs up to 25 percent less and uses up to 15 percent less packaging. The monitor and cables in this eco-friendly display are free of mercury, halogen and arsenic. Additionally, the monitor is compliant with ENERGY STAR 5.0, TCO 5.0 and EPEAT Gold.

Users will have the ability to track their carbon savings with the display’s resettable carbon footprint meter, a unique tool that calculates the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. New to NEC’s MultiSync EA Series is the resettable cost meter, which indicates the user’s electricity cost savings via the On Screen Display.
