Cost-conscious, Green Display for SMB Users

NEC Display Solutions of America just announced the 17-inch AS171 to the AccuSync Series, replacing the popular ASLCD73VX-BK display. Joining the recently introduced 19-inch AS191, AS191WM and 22-inch AS221WM, this standard-aspect ratio display is designed for small-to-medium-sized businesses and continues to promote environmental consciousness, a standard in the AccuSync Series.

The energy-efficient 17-inch AS171 display consumes 21 percent less power than its predecessor. It shares the certifications of its AccuSync siblings, an EPEAT™ Silver rating, and ENERGY STAR 5.0 and TCO 5.0 compliance, giving users confidence that these displays are environmentally preferable purchases. The monitor’s 2-step ECO Mode™ technology allows users to maneuver between two energy-savings modes, while its ergonomic tilt function brings users flexibility and enhanced comfort.

“The 17-inch AS171 display brings variety and value to AccuSync Series users,” said Lynn Gu, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. “We continuously see a strong demand for the 17-inch standard aspect ratio from enterprise and small-to-medium business sectors, and our goal with this display is to offer improved green technology, energy efficiency and eco-friendly features.”

A partial list of the AS171 features includes:

  • 1280 x 1024 native resolution
  • VGA and DVI connectivity
  • 900:1 contrast ratio
  • 5-ms fast response time
