NEC intros EX231W LCD with DisplayPort

NEC has quietly put out a new 23-inch LCD, the MultiSync EX231W, that it promises will use technology to gain its green credentials. The design has both an ambient light sensor to automatically lower brightness but also has a motion sensor to check for inactivity and go dark when the user is away. LED backlighting and a manual override in Eco Mode cut back on the power even while active.

The 1080p screen is also relatively rare in having DisplayPort alongside DVI and VGA. It's built to be multi-monitor ready with an 0.57-inch thick bezel and touch-sensitive controls for brightness and scrolling in the front of the design rather than the sides; users can pivot the display 90 degrees for a portrait view. Using LED lighting gives it a 25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (1,000:1 static) and 250cd/m2 brightness.

US buyers will get the EX231W in November for $339.
