[QUOTE=mciahel;2523604] Spec says 500 mA @5V = 2.5 W.
Apologies, I’ve been working with too many 2.5" portable HDD’s with extra power USB power connectors.
So to be USB powered … this monitor requires AT LEAST 3x USB connections, and possibly more?
It’s a good thing motherboards come with upto 14x USB2 ports, eh?
And it seems a bit of stretch that … if you can power a PC … you can’t buy a $2 double adapter to supply the monitor … or spend $10 you get a Y cable.
I have a 3yr old 20" dell monitor rated at 34W (Average) sitting beside me … so getting an 18.5" down to 7.5W (minimum) is really just a bit of natural progression, given that LED’s now get about 4-6x the light compared to 2yrs ago, when they started installing them, and can now be used in lieu of cold cathode fluorescents.
I’m actually not particularly impressed.
Seems like a gimmick.
