Japanese display maker iiyama introduced a new 21.5-inch LED-illuminated desktop monitor that boasts of an impressive 53.5 percent energy savings compared to similarly-sized CCFL-illuminated monitors. LED-illuminated monitors typically offer 30-40 percent energy savings. The ProLite E2278HD from iiyama was announced for the Japanese market earlier today, which will start selling in early-August, priced at 13,800 JPY (US $176).

The iiyama ProLite E2278HD packs a TN-film LCD panel that's LED-illuminated. It features 1920 x 1080 pixels native resolution, 5M:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 250 cd/m² maximum brightness, and 5 ms response time. Display inputs include DVI (HDCP-capable) and D-Sub (VGA). Measuring 514.5 mm x 177.5 mm x 369.5 mm (W x D x H), it weighs about 2.7 kg. Its stand allows basic tilting.

That's nice to see, but they're not the first manufacturer to do this; Acer has had a similar monitor with similar specs for at least 1 year, as have the other monitor manufacturers. In fact, I'm using the Acer right now, 21.2W max power draw. The Iyama is 20W max according to its specs. Probably the same LCD panel manufacturer (LG? Samsung?)

Hopefully monitors like this will be the norm, sooner rather than later.
