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.
Summary: I will throw out some random facts: 0. MATTE SCREEN! 1. This monitor is about 1/2" shorter than the typical 19" (5:4; 1280 x 1024) LCD. 1/2" shorter and 56 more pixels, so the pixel density is marginally higher than the 19" squarish monitor. 2. The speakers are just adequate. Those who have the original Mac mini should appreciate it. However, if you really want sound quality, you'd better hook up to an external speakers. 3.
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.
