Installation
Making use of USB (Universal Serial Bus)
Bus) is an innovation in connecting your different
desktop peripherals conveniently to your computer. By using the USB,
you will be able to connect your mouse, keyboard, printer, and other
peripherals to your monitor instead of having to connect them to your
computer. This will give you greater flexibility in setting up your system.
USB (Universal Serial
USB allows you to connect chain up to 120 devices on a single USB port,
and you can "hot" plug (attach them while the computer is running) or
unplug them while maintaining Plug and Plug auto detection and
configuration. This monitor has an integrated self-powered USB hub,
allowing up to 4 other USB devices to be attached it.

This
equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy
and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception (which can be determined by turning the equipment on and off),
the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by using one or
more of the following measures:

responsible for compliance could void the user's (or your) authority to
operate the equipment. Only peripherals (digital input/output devices,
terminals, printers, etc.) certified to comply with the Class B limits may be
attached to this monitor. Operation with non-certified peripherals is likely
to result in interference to radio and TV reception.

product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme which
provides for an international environmental and quality labelling of personal
computers. The labelling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the
TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska
Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation),
Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy Administration)
This
and SEMKO AB.
The
requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment,
ergonomics, usability, reduction of electric and magnetic fields, energy
consumption and electrical safety.
Why do we have

In many countries, environmental labelling has become an established
method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the

consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the

electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g.
acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to
save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running
continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy.

Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colour-generating
layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous
system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement
states that batteries, the colour-generating layers of display screens and
the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
