Computer manufacturer Viewsonic is one we’ve noted several times before as having a focus on products which integrate green features in them. The company is now back on our radar again with the recent unveiling of a new line of LCD displays which are ergonomic, widescreen and sporting eco-friendly ideas.
The Viewsonic VG28 series consists of four models – the 20″ VG2028wm and 24″ (23.5″ viewable) VG2428wm, priced around $249 and $369 respectively and available now, as well as the 22″ (21.5″ viewable) VG2228wm and 27″ VG2728wm that will be available in July for around $299 and $579 respectively. These are business focused displays, but can be equally useful at home given nice add-ins like HD resolution (1080), HDMI input and an integrated 4-port USB hub.
On the green side of things, these new Viewsonic displays have your usual array of third party labels, including Energy Star 5.0 and EPEAT, to show that the manufacturer has at least given some thought to better energy efficiency and minimizing toxic chemicals. The computer monitors are also equipped with a special Eco mode that reduces power consumption and extends the display’s backlight.
“The VG28 displays offer flexibility and comfort along with certified energy savings,” said Sean Gunduz, senior product marketing manager, ViewSonic, in a statement. “Ergonomic design and eco-friendly features are increasingly important for those looking to maximize space and minimize waste, and the VG28 series has been designed with an energy-efficient, high-quality office and classroom set-up in mind.”
