Dell‘s E228WFP consumes 44.6W. Acer‘s AL2251W gobbles up 50W. That’s according to smart planet. And according to them, LG‘s W2252TE makes these two 22″ LCD monitors look like filthy pigs when it comes to energy consumption. The W2252TE sips electricity at just a 19.4W clip. I previously blogged that the W2252TE consumed 40W. Not so. Chop off 50%. That’s less than half of what the E228WFP woofs down. But what to do with the packaging!
The packaging is plastic that is unrecyclable and non-biodegradable. Not good when you are targeting an audience who are very green conscious. The cardboard? Not recycled.
Is it worth ditching your current LCD monitor for a new one like the W2252TE? Probably not. It would be best to ride out your LCD monitor until it dies. Consuming less by not buying a new LCD monitor is probably the best way to save energy since it takes a lot to manufacture a new LCD monitor, package it, distribute it and get it to your door.
