I-O Data rolled out the AD221PEB, a 21.5-inch monitor that's ready for PoE (power over Ethernet), letting you use a common plug for network connectivity, and enough power to meet its under-60 Watt draw.

The AD221PEB, as a monitor, offers a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, it uses a TFT LCD panel with viewing angles of 160°/170°. Other vitals include 5 ms response time, 250 cd/m² maximum brightness, and dynamic mega-contrast. Measuring 507 mm x 178 mm x 390 mm (WxDxH), the display weighs about 3.5 kg.
