Conclusion: The NEC AS221WM is a capable budget monitor that will help businesses cut costs across the board. It offers reasonably good colour and greyscale performance and won't stress your electric bill, but it could use additional features, such as an HDMI port, an ergonomic stand, or a few USB ports. A 1,920 x 1,200-pixel resolution would have been nice as well. Published under license from Ziff Davis, Inc., New York, All rights reserved.
