Limited warranty!

  • Pros: Solid monitor, great graphics, overall NEC impressed me so I bought it and trouble free for 1 year. Then the DVI side went south.
  • Cons: DVI went out after 11 months and they sent me a shipping container free of charge, cool! I paid the 30 bucks shipping to Calif., no prob. They paid the freight back and put a sheet of paper in the box stating "Could not duplicate the problem". I called and could not get any info and I won't even get into the language barrier thing. Went thru the thing using other vid cards, various dvi cables, numerous PC's, and carried it around to other locations to avoid EFI and th...

So-so

Gordon L., Newegg

  • Pros: * Plenty of screen real estate
  • Cons: Awful top-to-bottom viewing angle - there is a definite tone difference between the top and the bottom of the monitor. I ordered two of these - one for me and one for my wife - and they both suffer from the same thing.

  • Pros: I just ordered a second one if that tells you anything. Very nice picture. Nice size. Good quality build. Stand is very easy to adjust and get right. Just an all around excellent monitor for the price. Nice, thin bezel.
  • Cons: Took some time to get the picture calibrated well. Menu buttons take some getting used to.

Love these

Andrew S., Newegg
4 March 2012
  • Pros: The best thing about these monitors is the ability to turn them to portrait mode. I have 3, so my overall display size is 3240x1920. When sitting at the computer, playing games or anything else I need to do its great. Easy to see very clear bright picture.
  • Cons: Limited inputs.

Not The Best, Not The Worst

David B., Newegg
26 January 2012
  • Pros: The stand is of high quality and is very sturdy. The LED backlight uses about half the power of my old 17" CCFL monitor. Text is easy to read even at a small size. Overall good color quality (some colors such as blue look very nice and vibrant while others look a bit washed out). Decent response time and I have no problems playing high speed games.
  • Cons: The brightness of the monitor is inconsistant, with the top of the screen being slightly dark and getting brighter and brighter towards the bottom. It seems to be more noticable when web browsing and less noticable while gaming or watching videos. There's also some color dithering going on that can be noticed at times, especially when I run it at a non-native resolution. Also I hear some popping and cracking sounds for a few minutes everytime I power up the monitor wh...

Mediocre

Samuel C., Newegg
8 January 2012
  • Pros: Very light monitor. Nice, clean industrial design. Decent price.
  • Cons: I should preface this by saying I use a 27" Apple Cinema Display at work, which is hands down the nicest monitor I've ever seen and makes me a tough critic. That said, I find this monitor produce very washed-out/unsaturated colors. There is also a brightness gradient going from the top to the bottom of the monitor when looking at it dead on (top is more dim).
