User Review

John E., Newegg
17 June 2011
  • Pros: Works great after buying a new cable.
  • Cons: I encountered the same problem mentioned by some other reviews, namely that when using the D-sub cable that comes with the monitor, the picture quality is sometimes poor. There were some slightly blurry areas that seemed to move around, which was a little distracting. I bought an $8 HDMI to DVI-D...

Excellent Monitor

Leonard R., Newegg

  • Summary: It is hard to get non-widescreen monitors. Buy one while you still can.
  • Pros: Crisp and clear. Not a trace of flicker at 1280 X 1024 Perfect aspect ratio for computer programming.
  • Cons: Not the greatest viewing angle, but that's a limitation of the technology. Certainly good enough for close work.

Analog input is awful

Matthew S., Newegg
28 October 2010
  • Summary: It's always good to trial a monitor using test images. Google for "monitor test images" to get a good site.
  • Pros: Looks just fine using the DVI input.
  • Cons: If you plan to use this monitor's analog (DSUB) input, think again. I bought mine at another well known Internet retailer and fortunately they had a return policy which allowed me to get my money back, because this monitor's clock sync is really messed up on the DSUB connector and it's pretty hea...

Great monitor

William F., Newegg
28 September 2010
  • Pros: I got 3 of these to replace 3 Dell 19" monitors. One of my Dells had burned out, and the other two were not as sharp and it was starting to bother me. I got one of them in today (the other 2 come in tomorrow) and I'm amazed. The picture quality is incredible and it can be very bright - so I left ...
  • Cons: The stand could use height adjustment but I plan on mounting these on a triple/quad mount later anyhow. I didn't buy this for the stand, anyhow.

Excellent Monitor

Evan P., Newegg
7 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought one. When the people in our office seen it they asked for one just like it. We are now at three. They continue to serve use without issues.
  • Pros: The image is crisp and easy on the eyes. For office type work this monitor excels in part because it is not a wide screen format. More useable space for most operations. I appreciate the quality of this product. Over time and with lots of use the picture quality remains excellant.
  • Cons: None

Great monitor that won't dissapoint

Edward O., Newegg
17 April 2010
  • Summary: THis monitor was more pricey than others I've compared, but you will not be disappointed with the vivid colors, range of brightness/contrast settings, and customization of the AS191. Plus its a low power monitor that can save a few dollars in electricity.
  • Pros: Great colors, fast response, lots of adjustability. I bought this to replace a 19" Dell that crapped out on me recently and the difference is like night and day. The background lighting on NEC was far superior, had more vivid colors and the range of adjustments blew the Dell out of the water. I'm...
  • Cons: The only complaint I have is that no DVI cable was included. At nearly $200, I think NEC could include a cable without sacrificing features.
