If your company has reason to update any of your monitors in the near future, NEC Display Solutions has introduced a new model that provides not just its "Eco Mode" option, which lets you adjust your display for energy consumption metrics, but also an on-screen carbon counter that shows what impact those tweaks might have on your electricity usage and carbon emissions.
NEC actually introduced the concept of Eco Mode at least as early as the turn of the century (how weird does that sound?) in some of its projectors, and it's in the process of extending it out to its display lines.
The NEC MultiSync EA 261WM model (which is a 26-inch model) will automatically default to Eco Mode when you turn it on, but it gives you the choice to switch it on or off. Using this option reduces brightness by up to 60 percent, letting you manage power accordingly. Here's some more technical specifics on the product, which is Silver-certified under the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool guidelines and costs slightly less than $700.
