Display vendor NEC Display Solutions is playing to ship its first LED-backlit desktop monitor by the end of December, promising to cut power consumption roughly in half compared with some of its previous LCD-based products.

The MultiSync EA222WMe is a 22-inch model that is compliant with the Energy Star 5.0 and EPEAT Gold specifications, and uses NEC's EcoMode management software (which lets you reset brightness and track energy costs). It radiates up to 61 percent less heat and uses 15 percent less packaging than other display models in NEC's product line. It has also eliminated mercury, halogen and arsenic from the components.

As you might expect, this display has the usual goodies: 16:10 widescreen, 1680 x 1050 native resolution and support for VGA, DVI, USB and DisplayPort inputs. It integrates multimedia speakers. Here's a link to the complete list of features.

The anticipated street price for MultiSync EA222WMe is $339, and it carries a three-year parts and labor limited warranty.
