Near the bottom of the page...power consumption of 2W? I heard these things are supposed to be efficient, but...that's crazy.

Maybe when it's on standby... 2.0 doesn't sound right at all, especially when they claim it's only 40% better than standard monitors.

2 watts for an LCD with LED backlight that is selectively lit doesn;t sound too out of line. Remember that's just for the LCD and backlight. It doesn;t include any of the other circuitry associated with the display.

That's 40% is better than a typical LED backlight. Unfortunately LED backlights are the exception rather than the rule as most LCD displays are still backlit using CCFLs
