Dell eco friendly monitors
Dell has quietly launched several new eco-friendly monitors, including the P2210, E190S and E170S. The P2210 22-inch display supports resolutions up to 1680 by 1050 pixels, with a variety of viewing-angle adjustments. Users can connect to a computer via VGA, DVI-D with HDCP, or DisplayPort connections. The device also provides four USB 2.0 connectors to work as a hub. The company claims to have utilized halogen-reduced materials to minimize environmental impact, while the monitor also meets EPEAT Gold and Energy Star standards.
The 19-inch E190S offers a maximum resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels, with an 800:1 contrast ratio and 250 cd/m2 brightness. Only VGA connection is supported, although the monitor could be used for both business and home use. The device meets Energy Star and EPEAT Gold standards, while integrating halogen-free laminates and using a chassis composed of 25-percent post-consumer recycled plastics.
The E170S features the same eco-friendly design of the E190S, but in a more compact 17-inch size. The monitor supports 1280 by 1024 pixel resolution and provides a VGA port.
The P2210 is now available for $240, while the E190S and E170S carry prices of $130 and $110, respectively.
