Sitting the record straight

J T., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Summary: If one use an average monitor with 72 or 85 % gamut coverage, the can not expect accurate colors in their prints. The print will show 100% of the gamut. Even if your 72% gamut monitor is accurately calibrated, you are still missing 30% viewable tones and colors.
  • Pros: Extremely accurate colors. A real professional monitor. DOES NOT BUZZ. I use this monitor for professional photographic work. That means I expect the image on the monitor to look just like the prints I get back from my lab. To do this, one must have a accurate, 99+% gamut, evenly lit monitor, wit...
  • Cons: None. Professional grade monitors cost much more than everyday monitors. It is what is is... One can not get professional results from average monitors.

  • Summary: I've work with several grayscale medical monitors e.g. Barco, RealSync, NEC, Dome, Eizo. This model is up to par with the other more expensive. Very beautiful picture. Great grayscale.

Image is good but...

Ryo I., Newegg

  • Summary: 5 eggs for image quality, but need to deduct due to the high-pitched noise.
  • Pros: Crisp and bright image. Even illumination from side to side. Nice color.
  • Cons: As another reviewer has pointed out, there is a low level high-pitched sound coming from the display. I could not hear it, but both my teenage sons hear it, and they say it is annoying to them. So this may be a problem if you have sensitive hearing.

Not ready for prime time.

William L., Newegg

  • Summary: I've been waiting a couple of years now for NEC to come out with a LED monitor in their Professional Series. It's unfortunate that it has problems like this.
  • Pros: The screen is bright and crisp. Colours are vibrant.
  • Cons: Both of the monitors I received (one a replacement for the other) exhibited a high frequency, low pitch sound emanating from the left side of the monitor in the rear. The higher the brightness, the higher the pitch.

Dead pixels.. Yet premium range and price.

nil, Amazon

  • Summary: Careful these monitors aren't free from dead or defective pixels! I ordered one of these, but mine had 5 compromised pixels scattered randomly over screen. Had a few dark/black, and three greens - two of them right next to each other (very noticeable).

  • Excerpt: Черный цвет не достаточно черный, в комнате нужно хорошее яркое освещение, что бы черный был более черным а не темно синим. К тому же на черном хорошо просматриваются тонкие вертикальные полосы.
  • Pros: Отличные цвета, широкий выбор настроек.
  • Cons: Цена, плохой черный

Fantastico

  • Summary: Ho cercato, comprensibilmente, di risparmiare un po' di soldi e, dovendo acquistare un monitor da 24 pollici, ho tentato con: HP ZR2440W, Asus PA248Q, NEC EA244W. Il risultato è stato che ho regalato lo HP e restituito gli altri due.
