    Lenovo today announced that nine ThinkVision monitors are now EPEAT Gold qualified, making Lenovo the only computer manufacturer to offer such a distinction. EPEAT, or “Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool,” is one of the most highly sought environmental designations in the tech industry. EPEAT’s “Gold” designation means that the manufacturer has risen to the organization’s highest plateau of environmentally responsible efforts, achieving 23 "must have" criteria involving eliminating environmentally harmful material, product longevity, energy conservation, performance and more; and 75 percent of various optional criteria such as having batteries that are free of lead and low levels of mercury in light sources. The new Lenovo monitors designated EPEAT Gold qualified are: ThinkVision L151, L171, L171P, L194 Wide, L190X, L220X Wide, L174 and L197 Wide. Additionally, the ThinkVision L174 and L197 Wide introduced new technology to reduce power consumption. Lenovo engineers were able to accomplish this by reducing the number of bulbs used in the system from four to two, while adding new brightness enhancement films to ensure greater operating performance. The L174 is priced at $239.99 while the L197 Wide is priced at $259.99. Both monitors will be available on a rolling schedule April 18th through May 9th, depending on the country.

    Well, that's pretty awesome, but my primary concern is, what are the viewing specs and panel type. Being EPEAT Gold certified means little if they are crap products.
