NEC Display Solutions of America (hmmm, when did a monitor become a "solution"?) has added the Windows 7-ready, 17-inch MultiSync LCD175M to its line-up of monitors that feature ECO Mode.

ECO Mode allows you keep track of how certain power and usage setting will affect the carbon emissions that are being diverted by using the monitor. It also lets you toggle between two different energy saving modes. The company figures that this latest model uses up to 42 percent less electricity than others that came before it. It also contains less mercury.

The product complies with Energy Star 5.0, EPEAT Gold and the TCO 5.0 certifications.

Because I know you're not going to buy this thing "just because," a couple of important feature notes for the LCD175M include a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time, 1280x1024 high-definition resolution and height-adjust and tilt capabilities. Here's the full press release in case I missed some of the details. The list price is $179.
