Viewsonic has announced that it will transition from the use of CCFL displays over to the more ecologically progressive and higher quality LED displays. Every new monitor that the company launches will use LED technology and this not only means that they will consume a lot less energy, many featuring quite incredible additional energy saving options, but it also means that the monitors will offer considerably higher resolution and much better picture quality than their predecessors.
The flagship monitor, the release of which coincides with the announcement, is the VX2450WM which offers a massive 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio as well as full 1080p HD performance. The monitor not only provides incredible picture definition and quality but is manufactured using a mercury free process, is Energy Star 5.0 compliant, and is fully recyclable. The eco-mode option is also a great addition, and reduces operating power by 50%.
Far from being the only new model released, the VX2450WM is joined by two affordable models, the VA1931W-LED and the VA2231W-LED – these are being targeted specifically at schools and businesses and offer similar green credentials while of course using LED technology to make them even more attractive. They’re also joining the ever expanding line of companies to leap on to the 3D bandwagon by releasing what will be their first 3D monitor – the V3D241WM-LED. It will be fully compliant with ATI 3D and iZ3D standards and include a set of active shutter glasses so users can benefit straight out of the box.
To produce monitors and computer equipment using greener products is always a benefit, especially if it saves the user money as is the case with ViewSonic LED monitors. To do that and enjoy the added side effect of increasing picture quality and clarity is a great move.
