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: Focus on Quality Assurance first and foremost electronics manufacturers!
Pros: Great Display quality.
Cons: Died after 2 years. Sorry, but LCDs from this and other manufacturers have been dying on me well before their warranty periods, more than any other devices, and I'm getting kinda tired of it. No matter the quality of the device, I need them to work, and work reliably. The return process was flawl...
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.
Summary: The image quality and color fidelity of this panel definitely exceeded my expectations. (I calibrated it with a Spyder and very nearly could not tell the difference between the A/B images at the end of calibration.) I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't get a better display at this price.
Summary: Given no choice, the RMA for the second monitor was filed on April 5th.
Pros: Great picture when it works, decent price.
Cons: We order three EA231WMI's on March 2010. The first back-light failure occurred on in December, 29th 2010. NEC sent us a refurbished unit. The second back-light failure occurred on March, 1st 2011. Being in the electronics industry, I understand that bad batches happen and I was willing to accept ...
Summary: I purchased one, liked it so much, bought another one. Last week purchased the EA232WMi (led version) from NEC because I could not find it on Newegg's site, it is even better. I can no longer use my Acer monitors after watching the NEC's, the quality is so much better.
Pros: Sharp, clear, sturdy, well designed, spectacular.
Great monitor, but watch out for defective direction-sticks
28 March 2011
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.
