great images. Not great type...Retina far superior for code

Excerpt: This is a very good overall monitor for "images" and photo editing. It is absolutely not a great monitor for coding or reading small type. Even "light" type and book weight type are poorly rendered at normal body text sizes.
Excerpt: I use this for photo editing. I was going to by the 27" Apple retina but the reviews on it were bad. B&H spent a bunch of time helping me select the best choice to pair with my MacBook Pro.
I love it. Get the NEC calibrator to go with it.
Excerpt: This is a really fine monitor for those requiring accurate color rendition, ability to calibrate easily, truly professional-level construction, and access to many professional-level features not found on cheaper monitors.
Excerpt: I have been using an older NEC monitor, model P221W, it has served me really good for last 5 years. This Multisync PA272W is a huge improvement. Comparing side by side the new one is a lot better, especially for photo editing. It's like rediscovering my own work again.
Excerpt: I've been procrastinating on getting a new monitor because of cost. Finally did, upgrading from a 20" CRT, which was still in pretty good shape, to the NEC. WOW. Why did I wait so long? It's beautiful and so much space. I am a pro photographer and using photo programs is so much easier.
Excerpt: Using this with a MacBook Pro. I purchased this as a replacement for a 24" Dell Ultrasharp that I thought was really good. This monitor was fantastic right out of the box! Then I calibrated it using the Spectraview software and i1Display pro. Wow! is all I can say.
