HP has announced two new monitors in their LE series of power-saving PC monitors. The models named LE1901w and LE2201w are 19 and 22 inches large.
The two new models focus on the greener and eco-friendly philosophy, according to HP. Power consumption in use is low compared to today's standard and the 22-inch model consumes only 30 W. The 19-inch model consumes 22 W. Stand-by energy consumption is 2W, though.
According to HP the secret behind the reduced power consumption is a new type of backlight. HP did not mention if it’s a LED backlight or not.
Specifications: resolution of 1680x1050 (22") and 1440x900 (19"), 5 ms response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness and 160/160 viewing angles. Both monitors feature TN panels as the viewing angles also suggests.
Both screens are available now and HP hopes to appeal to companies that want"green offices". LE2201w costs 145 UK pounds ex VAT. Read more at www.hp.com
