Monitor includes Eco-mode, carbon footprint meter
NEC has lined up a new monitor for the budget inclined. The AS192WM is a 19-inch AccuSync LED backlit display that offers a 33-percent reduction in power consumption, partly due to removing the Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp backlighting that its predecessor used. The Energy Star 6.0 compliance, EPEAT Silver rating, Eco-mode and carbon footprint meter tools also help it save power and be more environmentally friendly.
The 16:10 widescreen display has a native resolution of 1440 by 900, and has connectors for both VGA and DVI-D video feeds. Integrated 1-Watt stereo speakers and a headphone jack helps users save desk space by eliminating stand-alone speakers.
Available later this month, the AS192WM will go on sale for $150.
