NEC AtermWR8150N

NEC have released 2 new wireless network routers that have been designed to have 30% less power consumption compared to existing routers. The AtermWR8150N Series routers feature an ECO button, which when pushed will switch off all LEDs except the power indicator light. Supposedly switching off the LEDs saves 30% less energy.

There’s no additional information on what the eco mode does, and I question whether just turning some LEDs off will actually save that much energy. It’s a shame that they haven’t included features to power-down the wireless networking at certain times too. To me, it feels like they’ve just added marketing spin to this product.
