post #4721 of 25893
Really this just builds on a project i have been working on recently to convert my entire house lighting to 12v LEDs to save a massive amount on my electric bill. I went from close to 300 dollars a month to 38 dollars a month(average over 6months since conversion). This just seems like another logical step in that direction.

Any thoughts? smile.gif

Sorry for being noob, but why would running your monitor through a computer PSU lower the operating cost?

I have been thinking the same thing, i have 3 monitors and having 3 seperate bricks bothers me.

I just need to find out a compatible power plugs for the monitors, and wiring the rest should be easy enough.

Its just simple 12v. I will either use molex from my pc, or a modded xbox 360 power supply.

The same reason just screwing in an LED cluster into a house E27 outlet is not as good as running a new 12v wiring and controller setup. It is about a efficient circuit all the way through.

Does anyone know if the stock AC adapter is that inefficient? Seems like it would be worthwhile to measure the difference.

Kind of a random question, but the monitor shipped with Fedex, and I live in New York. If the package arrived in Memphis, TN an hour ago, is the monitor coming today (the 25th) or tomorrow? Just need to know in case I have to ask someone to sign for the monitor since I'm working.

Anyone consider this http://www.2560x1440monitor.com/ as a better alternative to buying on ebay? Are these the actual companies selling the monitors or is it just some random guy that made a website and re-sells them?

Wow congrats, that is a huge savings. It will probably take time to offset the price of the led bulbs, but certainly better for the environment
