LG's planet-saving W2252TE LCD tested


Here's the fact: LG's claims of significant power savings with the W2252TE 22-inch LCD are no lie. As it turns out, the monitor sips even less juice than LG claimed, a mere 19.4 watts -- less than half of its Dell and Acer counterparts. The folks at SmartPlanet also found the display to perform "above average," and pack all the relevant features you'd expect on a modern LCD. LG doesn't win any green points for its completely traditional plastic and non-recycled cardboard packaging, and since there's no word on price yet, we're just going to have to assume the W2252TE will carry a price premium relative to its power saving prowess, but maybe that's just us being pessimistic. It should be hitting shelves next month.
