On the off chance you are looking to save a few bucks here and there on your power bill, LG has announced the Flatron W2252TE—a display that they claim is the "world's most energy efficient." Apparently, the monitor uses 45% (or around 40W) less power than traditional models. Interestingly enough, the 22-inch Flatron manages to score a 1680 x 1050 resolution, 2ms response time, 170 degree viewing angle, 250cd/m2 brightness and a surprising 10,000:1 contrast ratio despite the drop in power consumption. A price point has yet to be determined, but the monitor is slated for a UK release this August. [Pocket-lint]

DISCUSSION

I am surprised at the lack of interest in such a product. Energy efficiency is the future, any company to invest in EE technology now will solidify its place in the upcoming marketplace. Not too mention... Karma... financial karma that is.
