Good for pros, probably more than the average home view needs.

DB, Amazon

  • Summary: Good: Bright, clear colors. Text is sharp and crisp. The 90 rotate feature is very handy for those long text documents. Height, tilt, and turn adjustment for every conceivable viewing need. Colors are true at a VERY wide viewing angle. No tinting or blue/green/pink shift. Video and games are clear without blur or stutter. Some reviewers have pointed to the lack of an HDMI output. Not really an issue.

When used without the Spectraview profiling solution, this is a waste of money.

Michael Balensiefer, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: Out-of-the-box profile is suspect. This definitely needs some sort of calibrating device if you are spending the cash (please stay away from SpiderCo). I have since upgraded to the 27" and am looking at the 30" solution, refurbished, on EBay, which sells for 1.8 times what this device does for, new. Great picture, many options. Since SVII costs about $350, you can make that purchase more cost-effective by getting the 27" NEC; which gives you 1.6 times the pixels.

Great monitor

anonymous, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: Had a rough start, because of the super bright reds & pinks, when looking online, but figured it out. I already had a Spyderpro 4 calibration tool, before buying this monitor, and calibrated the monitor with it. Everything was looking good, except online. I couldn't get the reds & pinks to calm down and it was recommended that I buy the the Spectraviewll software from NEC for $89.00 ( look under support & service - downloads & software - monitor software - click on...

Great Monitor

ERAWIKD, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this about 10 month ago and been performing great. Very solid design, easy to adjust and the colors are great. I alrady have the calibration software and the analyser from a NEC screen I bough 5 years ago (The old screen is still going strong bought the new one to get to a dual monitor setup) so did not have to buy another one. I would highly recommend to get the calibration software if you are interested in color accuracy.

Great accuracy, IPS works well

  • Summary: Although expensive relative to a "regular" TFT monitor the wide gamut, great viewing angles and consistent color reproduction makes this a must buy for serious photographers that want a color managed workflow.

Great Value compared to Eizo and actually a bit better... for print and web!

msnamikawa, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: As a professional photographer and retoucher with an Eizo at the office, when I saw this had similar specs at half the price I jumped. In color managed workspaces working with embedded icc profiles in Photoshop and other programs, you can't tell the difference with the eizo. Incredibly accurate to the true image, matches prints RGB and CMYK.

frustrating at first for a novice user, then quite satisfying

Alfred Viola, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: EDIT: I just learned that the problems I was encountering are due to the clashing of web content with the expanded color spectrum I was using in settings. This unit is actually quite wonderful. But even more wonderful is the NEC tech support. They have been so patient with me, Steve and Clayton have, and so generous with their time and information.

Hidden colors reveal themselves

fotographer "It is not soft, it is hyperfocal", Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: My new monitor just came in, I bought it from another reputable two letter New York photo store that had it for almost $100 less than Amazon. I contemplated a refurbished unit, but $150 was worth to have warranty for additional 3 years. I acquired NEC Spectroview II software as well (available directly from NEC for about $70) and used it with my i1Pro spectrophotometer. After calibration the evenness of display is remarkable compared to "profiled" 27" iMac.

The only monitor I want

Amazon Customer "Design Chick", Amazon
2 November 2010
  • Summary: I have the 27-inch version of the monitor at work, which made this the only choice when it came time to buy a new monitor for home. (The 27-inch is both too big and too pricey for my home use.) I am a photographer, graphic designer and web designer, and I've never seen a monitor that comes close to matching photo lab prints before the NEC.
