Philips Announces the 241P4LRY 'ErgoSensor' Monitor

Philips has now introduced the 24-inch Brilliance 241P4LRY, its very first monitor to feature the ErgoSensor technology which not only saves power but also helps the user have a healthier experience. To cut power draw (by up to 80%), the ErgoSensor will turn off the monitor when no one is in front of it, while to ensure better ergonomics it will advise the user on neck posture, optimal viewing distance and will suggest breaks at regular intervals.

The 241P4LRY features WLED backlighting, a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a 5 ms response time, 250 cd/m2 maximum brightness, a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 (20,000,000:1 SmartContrast), D-Sub, DVI and DisplayPort connectivity, four USB 2.0 ports, two 1.5 W speakers, and a stand enabling height, swivel, tilt and rotation adjustment.

Philips claims the 241P4LRY will hit stores early next month, bearing a price tag of 339 Euro.

Damn...technology is getting way to smart. This crap would get annoying! I hope there is an option to turn off this "feature".

I really like the ideas they want to implement. I would love to have my monitor remind me on a set basis to go for a break. I hope that makes it to the cheaper models as well.

You would think that's the keyboard's job. "Get off of me and go to bed!" after it detects drool on itself.

the whole turning the monitor off while no one is in front of it has been done by other manufacturers. The Ergosensor however is a first and it sounds pretty useful but most people would probably ignore that and set their monitor up the way they want it to
