Summary: I come from using a NEC Pro CRT monitor. This monitor pales in comparison. The lack of uniformity of the lighting of the screen is just appalling. No adjustment seems to be able to get the colors rich without making them muddy at the same time. It always looks a little foggy compared to the CRT.
Pros: Good ergonomics
Cons: Poor quality light dispersal across the monitor. No adjustment seems to help.
Summary: Really a shame - the monitor looked very good otherwise. For the price and NEC's reputation I was expecting a premium product and they definitely didn't deliver where the panel was concerned. Very sloppy assembly.
Pros: Looks very well made. Good brightness, color and image quality.
Cons: Very bad backlight bleeding. There was strong bleeding all along the right side with one point looking like the panel and been pinched by the frame. Also edge bleed along the bottom and lower left side.
