Expert review by : John Breeden II (

An eco-friendly LCD that doesn't cheat on performance


NEC's 22-inch EA223WM-BK LCD combines good performance with the lowest power use of any monitor the lab has tested.

Consumes very little energy, no persistence issues with fast-moving images

Eco modes set LCD a little too dimly, a bit expensive for a 22-inch panel

Crisp clear image. Height adjustable with ease. Out of the box plug in and go. Built in sound if you want it and USB connections too. Excellent!

None that I have found.
