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.
Summary: Right from the start this screen was difficult to adjust, now, after 2.5 years it comes on then shuts off completely soon after the "on" button is pressed. Not what I expected from NEC. I would avoid this produce.
Summary: This monitor is really good for a back-lit LCD monitor. An excellent alternative to those highly priced IPS monitors. Even cheaper than Dell makes them. NEC is a quality monitor manufacturer that is not to be taken lightly. No dead pixels or anything on this monitor.
Summary: I got this monitor a little more than a year ago after reading reviews praising it's out-of-box color accuracy and relatively low lag for gaming. Unfortunately, this monitor didn't serve me while in either respect. I am very sensitive to LCD lag and this displays got plenty of it.
Great monitor, but watch out for defective direction-sticks

Summary: When I first got the monitor, I was very impressed with the color, brightness, contrast, response times, stand adjustability, and cable management features. I recommended this monitor to everyone I thought would care and planned on buying another pair for a three-monitor Eyefinity rig.
Summary: Editing... Found a dead pixel. And the regular story about it of course is: "That pixel doesn't damage my work vitally. BUT I AM THINKING ABOUT THAT PIXEL EVERY TIME I LOOK AT THE MONITOR." Not so happy to find it on a brand new purchase. BEFORE: Was choosing between ViewSonic and NEC.
Summary: This monitor is steal for the price. It has VGA, DVI, and Displayport connections. I use a Displayport to Mini Displayport cable to connect it to my Macwhich works great. Very nice picture quality, calibrates easily and provides an excellent picture or text or images.
Summary: I was using a cheap LCD TV for a monitor. I began getting into HDR & portrait photography & when sending photos to the lab online, they weren't coming out as I saw them at home. Using the tests from [...] I just wasn't able to calibrate it correctly.
Summary: Unfortunately this one is going back. The unit I received has a dramatic color shift to purple in the left side - especially in the lower left corner. I am returning it to buy a to see how it does. It's a S-IPS panel (better) than the E-IPS panel used in this NEC. The HP's dot-pitch is higher also.
