Pros: I bought this in 2009 and am writing this review now in 2013. This monitor still works, has no artifacts or corruption, and displays things beautifully. Admittedly, I took very good care of it (didn't sneeze into it, or bump it on the desk).
Cons: I have nothing bad to say about this monitor.
Summary: When I first set up the monitors out of the box the brightness was at a 98 setting on both. After cranking it down the monitors display text and graphics both excellent. NO DEAD PIXELS!
Pros: I love the fact these are not wide screen monitors, for writing code I did not want wide screen monitors as I like more a vertical viewport. These fit the bill nicely. I purchased two for a dual monitor set up and have not been disappointed. I also chose these because it has both VGA and DVI inpu...
Summary: I bought a Nvidia GTX 295 (huge mistake) along with this monitor. Reds and yellows bled and looked horrible but I found out it was a color "enhancement" feature Nvidia has. I wonder what kind of damage that did to my monitor :-\
Pros: This monitor does exactly what it's supposed to, flawlessly. Picture is phenominal, no dead pixels, tilting angle is great
Pros: Monitor is clear and has good contract ratio. Very bright had to cut it down quite a bit with the controls. It's not a widescreen and doesn't have that annoying high gloss coating seen on a lot of new LCDs.
Cons: Really needs to sit higher off its base. It's a fix position no height adjustment.
Summary: I made the switch from a 6-year-old CRT monitor that was showing its age. It was like removing vaseline-coated sunglasses. My only regret was that I waited so long. Kudos to NEC for a fine monitor.
Pros: Sharp image, excellent brightness and contrast, zero dead/stuck pixels.
Summary: This monitor has good graphics perfomance as brightness/contrast/speed and quite a big dot pitch 0.294 mm (it makes viewing easier for my tired eyes), but it has annoying high pitch hum at ALL brightness levels below 95% and very limited leg adjustment.
