Samsung SyncMaster 70 Goes Green

Samsung Goes Green With New SyncMaster 70 MonitorSamsung has just given us a glimpse at its new green monitor. There is not a lot of information out yet, but what we do know is that the SyncMaster 70 Series consumes 33 percent less energy than any other Samsung and that's enough to make AL Gore proud.

A typical desktop computer uses about 65 to 250 watts. With most devices you can look at the label to see how much energy they use, but that doesn't work so well with computers. As far as monitors go they use any where from 35 to 80 watts. So saving 33 percent is something worth looking into.

The Syncmaster gives you a choice of 20 or 23 inch display screens and it sports a 50000:1 contrast ration, 2ms response time. There is no word when it will be available to purchase and the screen resolution is still a mystery. But the big question is the price. We'll just have to wait and see how much money along with electricity we can save.
