NEC intros green 23-inch E231 display
NEC has unveiled a new mid-range display aimed at pros, the 23-inch MultiSync E231W. It's said to be up to 40 percent more efficient than CCFL backlit monitors as it uses LED backlighting. It outputs at a native 1080p and the display has a 25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
Users can track the carbon footprint thanks to a built-in meter. An Eco Mode is integrated, with a light sensor detecting levels of ambient light and changing screen brightness accordingly. An off-timer and five video modes for text, movie, game, photo or standard viewing are also built-in. Input centers on full-size DisplayPort, but DVI and VGA are also options.
The MultiSync E231W ships later this month and carries an official price of $299.
