    Considering my monitor is only using 18.9w at the plug, I don't see how these are greener than what I already have. :3

    @Gzero: how do you count your monitor's power consumption?

    wall meters are good.


    The back of your monitor will list its max consumption, for example my 24" is awesome and claims 45W - but since i turned the brightness down from default, it only uses 32-33W

    Nice result Mussels.
    I reckon the marketing department have nothing new to sell these screens so slapping that they are green and eco friendly was the best they could come up with in accordance with today's issues.

    So you save what a few watts if you buy into this crap, but you lose more money than you spend on the electric to power it. Tip in the manufacturing cost of the new monitor, the disposal cost of your old monitor(if you throw it out rather than sell/pass it on). Doesn't sound so green and eco friendly now lol.

    My samsung 204b only takes 20w ( my settings and 40w default ). Maybe this one takes less than they say once you have it setup to how you like it.

    they always list maximum - that would be at highest brightness and contrast


    Since they list 21W, it likely uses somewhere around 15W at default settings
