  • LG's planet-saving W2252TE LCD tested

    Thought I would pass this quick news piece on.

    It is for LG's new low power using LCD.

    I was thinking it would look that great, but they say it does. Good news, and it saves on your power bill, and probably the heat it gives off too.:icon11:

      Had the impression that the Fujitsu drew 0 wattage when turned on and in use...oh well.

      Drawing a little power in standby is fine. Forking over a premium for that monitor means it'll take me many years of power savings before that monitor begins to become worth it.

        Anybody know where I can get a gasoline powered monitor? My carbon footprint isn't big enough! I currently have my computer hooked up to it's own generator! This way I don't have to worry about power surges!

          I am actually interested in this because I hope it trickles out to all monitors and other devices so that the cost is the same. If you add up all the people in your city's "vampire" energy waste (energy used by things when they are turned off) it is quite a sizable ammount of power lost.

          How many people for instance know that your cell phone charger uses power even if you don't have your phone plugged in. Just plugging the cord in the wall uses power.

            I do. Again, it's not much power (unless it's a really big o' transformer unit).

            I'm sure that tech will trickle down to other hardware as people become more and more energy-minded.

            Better yet, I would love to see OLED screens replace LCDs completely. They draw a tiny fraction of the amount of power LCDs do and can be made ultra thin and very flexible. :)

              Don't OLEDs degrade much faster though? I have an OLED-screened MP3 player, and it wasn't a week before the little image that appears while charging dimmed those illuminated pixels by a noticable amount.

                I don't know. I don't think so if they can make flexible displays with it. PC World magazine had an article on it a few years back and from there, it spurred my interest in this "new" technology.

                I can't seem to find the article right now, but Engadget had a article about how Sony displayed their first OLED "TV" display at a conference earlier this year. From the side, it's almost invisible since it has no perceivable thickness. The colors looked amazing as did the contrast on the display.

                There's also another company that is working on a "flexible" PDA-like display/device. I don't recall the company name. (I might have also read about it on Engadget...not sure.)

                  I'm waiting for the paper thin OLED monitor so I can hang it on the wall like a poster! Sweetness!

                    Sony didn't mention any figures, but I don't think it'll be cheap. My guess is $10,000 is probably a good starting figure. Even the, that might be a low starting price where Sony is concerned.

                    Edit:

                    AHA!

                    I think I found the article (or might be a updated one): http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/08/s...nch-oled-hdtv/

                    That should get some eyeballs rolling. ;)

                    Definitely a new article on it. Still can't find the Sony conference demo I read about (sometime last year?).



                    Not the greatest specs. But look at what it can do in 10-bit depth color.




                    Now that does look pretty amazing to my eyes. :)

                          It'll be a while before OLED's are practical, I'd give it a few years before they are worth buying... at all.

                          Sony has their OLED for $2500 although it was shown on sale (I doubt for very long) at that sam's club.

                          Damnit Blizzard, fix ZvT already >.<

                            You're able to see 30-bit color in a 24-bit JPEG? That's pretty amazing on its own.
