Sweden's TCO Development lists 141 TCO Certified Edge displays as of April 2015. This presents a slight increase over our account nine months ago. "Every TCO Certified Edge product meets all the requirements in TCO Certified for its product category and at least one of the additional TCO Certified Edge criteria..." TCO Certified Edge display vendors with the most models are Lenovo, NEC, Phillips, and Hewlett-Packard. Fujitsu recently joined the list with a single model.
TCO also lists 90 models certified under TCO Certified Projectors 1. This is an increase of ~17%. Models are all from NEC and Acer, both of which increase certified offerings There appear to be no TCO 'Edge' products in this class. EPEAT does not register projectors.
