Excerpt: After using a NEC PA271 monitor at work I decided to set up a home theater based around this monitor. The monitor's internal 2 watt speaker system had to be bypassed. I tried Apple's Airplay wireless audio connection to a nearby hifi but voices did not sync properly with the movie images on the monitor. I selected speakers with a direct USB digital connection from a Mac Mini mounted on the back of the monitor.
Summary: For those who purchase displays for public consumption NEC isn't a new name. I've pretty much purchased from all the major makers and I'm liking the way NEC put this unit together hardware and software wise. The software allows for good metrics and multiple configurations for startup along with a strong scheduler. I haven't used the video wall software/hardware solution provided, but it seems well thought-out.
Summary: I purchased this as a regular monitor for my desktop computers (i.e. not for the purpose of digital signage, etc. that large format displays are typically intended for). I've found that my eyes get strain from staring at a small high-DPI screen all day long and decided to try a large-format display so my eyes are forced to look around to various areas on the screen and refocus often at various distances.
