Conclusion: Overall I was thoroughly impressed with the NEC 2490WUXi. I can see now why the screen has proved popular already in the USA, and I can only hope that the market is open to the screen in Europe and the UK. The RRP of £799 is pretty steep compared with competing models such as the Dell 2408WFP, NEC 24WMGX3 and HP LP2475W, which can all be had for around £400 - 450.
Pros: Excellent colour accuracy, especially with hardware LUT calibration, Advanced features useful including ColorComp, AmbiBright, 12-bit LUT and A-TW polarizer, Very good responsiveness
Cons: Slightly 'wobbly' stand and build, Poor input lag, Comparitively high retail price
