Sleek New Displays Save Energy, Provide Exceptional Wide-screen Performance
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial and residential LCD, plasma, and projector displays, announced today the addition of three new wide-screen desktop displays to the popular AccuSync line, targeted to small- to medium-sized businesses, direct marketers, home office workers, system builders, and retail channels.

The 19-inch ASLCD194WXM and the 22-inch ASLCD224WXM displays replace the previous generation wide products, while the 17-inch ASLCD174WXM is a new addition to this category.  Each is a multimedia product, and the displays are enhanced with a new, sleek, thin design.  All models are touch-integration compatible.

"The new AccuSync wide-screen products continue to deliver the quality of the NEC brand while remaining price competitive," said Andrew Anderson, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions.  "The three displays feature NEC's exclusive ECO ModeTM, an easily selectable, power-reducing setting, which reduces brightness and cuts energy costs by 30 percent."

  • Exceptional wide-screen performance
