Good screen but buyer beware of the seller.

Robert G. Kaplan, Amazon

  • Summary: The reason the price was so good was because it was actually an older version which didn't have the newer connections. i had to buy an adapter to use this screen.The seller should have made this clear. The screen itself is very good though.

Great for text

Alexander W., Newegg

  • Pros: I use this as a secondary monitor for my IDE text editor for web development; HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, etc... since the monitor is so tall when turned vertically. This is extremely helpful since I can see more at once without scrolling up and down constantly. The monitor's adjustments for pivot, swive...
  • Cons: I think the colors are a little off. Ive never been able to get it to look quite right but overall it looks nice for text.... maybe not for editing graphics, video, or photos though.

Excellent Monitor. I have two of them.

  • Summary: I have two of these monitors hooked up to a new laptop. I would really like to have one large (square style) monitor around 32 inches but the price for such an animal is just crazy, so two widescreens was the affordable alternative.

  • Excerpt: I dreaded setting this monitor up by myself (hey, I'm a woman!), but it was a piece of cake. Can't believe how beautiful the screen resolution is. It will be perfect for webcasts and watching movies. The price plus free shipping cannot be beat by my local stores.

EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE

  • Excerpt: The screen is clear, bright and color is excellent. The only negative is finding directions for buttons - had to go to the NEC website and sort through all kinds product sales info, etc. But when we found it and printed it, the rest was easy.

NEC Quality

Joe, the Value Seeker, B&H Photo
8 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought a NEC Multisync EA231WMi monitor two years ago to replace a 22" Sharp monitor, which vibrates and makes annoying humming noise. The NEC monitor is heavier and well built with good picture and colors for general everyday use.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors

Very Poor Menu Interface

Jamison D., Newegg
11 December 2011
  • Pros: The monitor swivels and pivots as advertised.
  • Cons: This monitor is EXTREMELY difficult to program. After two week I am still unable to keep the monitor from entering into the ECO Modes and losing the backlight. When you turn the monitor off, it resets to factory default settings.
