Summary: This is certainly a good monitor. I've been using it everyday now since 2010. I photo edit on it--the gamma adjustment went very well. I watch videos on it. I even play Xbox 360 games on it, which it is definitely not intended for, though does well enough. It is built very well and I suspect it will last me a good number of years. Things I am not fond of: The lack of an HDMI input.
Summary: This monitor has met my expectations. As a casual photo editor, I have been satisfied with the colors with no adjustment. I set up the gamma in my graphics driver, and was good to go. I did not find the screen controls difficult to learn or use, with one exception, which has not been mentioned here, and which was not noted in the downloadable user manual: assume you've already turned off the eco-mode and auto-brightness.
Summary: I have owned the monitor for almost a month now and so far I am pleased. I am an amateur photographer and use the monitor with both a PC running XP and a new laptop running Windows 7. I used Huey Pro to calibrate the monitor, and as yet have not printed any photos because my printer an HP 9180 needs a couple cartridges, so I can not compare screen to print quality and color yet.
A nice step up from cheaper consumer-grade monitors

Summary: PROS: The display is sharp, bright, and contrasty; the monitor's body is styled very minimally and feels solid sitting on the desk. The extra horizontal real estate of a 16:9 display is great. It offers a high degree of user customization (you can even set the brightness of the power button LED).
Summary: Monitor is well built. Sturdy stand, decent controls. The pivot knob is a nice touch but it is a moving part that if and when it fails will cripple the user's ability to adjust color, contrast etc. Contrast range is disappointing. I have a Gateway PVA monitor with deep, rich colors due to great contrast adjustment and range. This NEC seems limited in its contrast display.
Summary: After reading this review, head on over to [...] hear you will find way more info about this monitor. PROS: 1. No dead pixels. I hate these little buggers! 2. Picture is crisp and beautiful. Text is crisp and blu-rays look great. DVD...well, look like DVD's. 3. The stand and housing are PERFECT. No reflective, shiny business going on here. A very sturdy and manly build. 4. Brightness adjustability is good. I dont have a problem when reading books or emails.
Excerpt: Аналогичные модели часто имеют всякие датчики (присутсвия, освещенности), а также иногда колонки. Это может и прикольно, но раньше я тоже без этого жил и недостатка в них не ощущаю. Переплата же за эти удовольствия на момент покупки составляла 3,5 т (NEC с той же диагональю и, как говорят, с такой же матрицей).
Pros: Отличные цвета. Хорошая цена (купил за 13.5) в конце ноября 2010. Размер удобный - брал для работы с фотографиями. В фотошопе и других программах фото удобно помещается в центре, а панели инструментов - по бокам, не мешают.
