Gateway and Acer tout eco-friendly monitors

Gateway has unveiled its 16:10 ratio MW19 and MW19V LCD monitors designed for professional office use.

The 19in monitors come with a dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1, allowing buyers to view heavy data files or computer-aided design applications with precision and sharply defined lines, the firm claimed.

The displays have a 5ms response time, and come with a number of ports, including VGA, DVI and HDCP, to ensure connectivity to a wide range of devices.

All Gateway displays feature a two-lamp system which consumes up to 50 percent less power, and are PVC and BFR free, according to the vendor. The monitors will be released on 1 August. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, Acer has released its S1 monitor range, two of which are the thinnest flat screens on the market at 13mm, according to the vendor. The range comprises the 18in S191HQL, 20in S201HL, 21in S221HQL and 23in S231HL.

The monitors, available now, have a contrast ratio of 12,000,000:1 and 5ms response times, Acer said, while the 'EcoDisplays' are compliant with EnergyStar 5.0 and the latest ISO 9241-307 standard.

The displays offer low power consumption, are made from environmentally friendly materials, and are PVC and BFR free.

Acer's eColor Management technology enables the panels to adapt to different light conditions, and allows users to fine-tune the display settings. Adaptive Contrast Management adjusts the contrast ratio to achieve ultra-sharp images, Acer added.

The firm's eDisplay Management provides advanced colour calibration and display management options, and each personalised setting can be stored and recalled for different applications and light conditions.
