How many times have you walked by a room full of computers that has all its screens blazing away without any students? All too often I suspect, but NEC’s EA231WMi wide-screen monitor has a button for getting the display into power-saving Eco Mode and adjusts its brightness based on the lighting level in the room. Its ambient light sensor quickly detects the lighting level and adjusts the monitor accordingly and has a carbon footprint indicator for tracking how much power it uses and saves. On top of traditional VGA and DVI connections, the EA231WMi can work with DisplayPort technology and has a 4-port USB hub built in. The display will sell for $379 when it becomes available later this month and comes with a three year warranty.
