5 out of 5 eggs7 years and still going strong!

Pros: Great contrast, what really stands out is the darks are really dark as they should be (not washed out/hazy).

No dead pixels, not even after 7 years!

Cons: Not much to complain about, after about 5 years of ownership the buttons on the button (mainly the power button) started getting tricky to use. It still works, but obviously takes a second or two before it recognizes I'm trying to turn it off/on.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this monitor for over 7 years now in a 24/7 environment, mostly for gaming. I only turn it off once or twice a year (when I leave for more than a couple days, on vacation for example).

2 years ago this became my 2nd monitor and I bought a 24" samsung as my main. However, the NEC still provides a noticeably better picture, especially when comparing the contrast between the two.

I never expected this monitor to last me 7 years and I'll end up keeping it as my secondary (I have a dual-screen setup) until it dies.

There are still no dead pixels and the image looks like it did when it was brand new.

I will be looking at NEC monitors in the future, whenever this one dies (who knows how long it will last!).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor

Pros: Excellent Monitor. No ghosting and nice colors. The "opticlear" gloss finish makes it look even better. Some reviewers say the glossy finish is a con, but as long as you don't have a bright light behind you, the picture looks awesome with the gloss finish.

Cons: The glossy finish can make for bad glare, but if you have the room decently shaded, it's not a problem. The blue power light is a little bright.

Other Thoughts: The native resolution means that you need to run your video card at that resolution and can be a bit small for normal tasks. Make sure your video card can handle it. The 3 year warranty makes me feel better after my last monitor died 13 months after I got it (yes the warranty was 12 months).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent quality bright display. I very much like the Opticlear display, glare is not an issue. Superior to all the other cheap LCD monitors I've used in recent years. Zero dead pixels.

Cons: None so far. If I wanted to be real picky I might say the setup/control buttons are flimsy, but I rarely use them.

Other Thoughts: I just ordered two more.

5 out of 5 eggsBoys shouldn't cry...

Pros: Amazing! Brilliant color definition. Clear seperation of "dark & lights". Very nice menu buttons & options. 4 USB ports on-board! Silver housing matches my decor & doesn't show dust . Good response time for DOOM & QUAKE. Native res is perfect for most games @ high quality settings. Makes my video card happy :-)

Cons: Wish all 4 USB ports were on the bottom, (2 are on the bottom & 2 are on the side which makes getting the 2 on the side rough because my display is a corner, but I managed to 3M tape a USB port on the bottom of my self which turned out pretty effin' nice).

Other Thoughts: This display brings tears to my eye. It makes my computing experience wet, (with tears). This thing injected new life into my computing habits, (which lead to the demise of the relationship between my girlfriend & I: I wish she looked this good).

4 out of 5 eggsprobably the best 19" 4:3 LCD monitor that is currently available

Pros: Fast response rate, very uniform backlighting with no noticeable "leakage" on any side (just like I expected from LCD monitor made by NEC), very bright.

Cons: This is a 6-bit TN panel so color dithering is rather noticeable especially if you've been a long-time user of a good CRT monitor (like I was), the silver bezel+buttons are kind of distracting in certain situations and there's no other bezel color choice. No height adjustment.

Other Thoughts: This monitor has a glossy "Opticlear" coating, which can be either good or a bad thing depending on the lighting in your room - with no light coming into your room it greatly improves the contrast and makes color more "vibrant", but if you have a moderate level of light coming into your room (the direction doesn't really matter) - prepare to stare at your own reflection if you're gonna play a very dark-colored game/movie.

3 out of 5 eggsGlare is a killer

Pros: - Great picture
- Very bright
- nice appearance
- everything except glare

Cons: - glare is ridiculous. It is pretty much unusable during the day. Admittedly I put it in a room with too much sun, but geez.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what I'm going to do with it. It looks great, and works well for me at night, but the rest of my family can't even use it during the day. I guess the old monitor is coming back and I'll...eat the $200 on this one. :(

5 out of 5 eggsSweet monitor

Pros: Replacement monitor for a customer of mine. Used it for a week to verify all pixels were working properly. The color and sharpness of this LCD monitor are very nice. Nice ultimate gaming nice, but I would definitely recommend this monitor to anyone who uses their computer for primarily surfing the net.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Has a built in USB hub which put 4 more USB ports at your fingertips. Has a swivel base that makes adjusting the view angle a breeze. The forward/reverse tilt is very generous. Beautiful monitor

5 out of 5 eggsSweeeeeeeeet

Pros: Awesome text, price, sharpness.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor after trying the Samsung 906bw. I didn't like the widescreen at all as I don't play games nor much videos on my monitor. The text is much sharper on this monitor than the Samsung. I will give a slight edge to Samsung on color quality. I have yet to tweak my monitor so that edge might not last long. Nec was super easy to set up. Very glad I switched monitors. The Samsung was nice but I like the Nec much more.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible monitor

Pros: Razor sharp. So bright that I turn the brightness down to 50-75%. Beautiful colors & gradients. Fast enough for gaming, although I have not tested yet in intense games. Intuitive, understated controls "float" just under monitor, including nifty "joystick" button. Optimal resolution is clearly 1280 x 1024. Incredible monitor for the money. NewEgg, how do you do it?

Cons: None for me.

Other Thoughts: Some might miss the lack of swivel adjustment. Note this is a 5W x 4H aspect monitor. I like the added vertical room for page-shaped work.

5 out of 5 eggsAs Good As It Gets

Pros: This monitor is doing everything I hoped it would. Bottom line, buy with confidence!

Mine is hooked up via DVI-D to a Mac G5 and via D-Sub to an AMD Linux box. When both are running I can switch back and forth using the "Select/1-2" button.

The USB hub (hi-speed v2.0) has my keyboard, external hard drive and UPS status line attached, more or less permanently. The 4th port is open for occasional thumb drive use. I have a USB extension cable coming from each computer and simply plug the NEC hub input into the one I wish to use at the moment. Low tech A/B switch, but it works!

Comes with all the cables you need. USB hub is powered by the monitor itself, not by a separate power-supply box.

Cons: USB keyboard is not detected by either OS X nor by Linux during initial phase of booting when plugged into the NEC hub. It is fully usable once the system is completely up. My guess is that only the first level of USB ports are scanned for the keyboard during early stages of booting. Later on, the entire USB tree is chased and devices on the NEC hub are registered and usable.

Other Thoughts: Glossy screen is _NOT_ a problem. No flaws with pixels, bleeds, etc.

Part of the plastic case was not snapped together at one single point. Easily fixed once I discovered it.

I've not touched the menu adjustments since initial setup. Very low maintenance.

Proven to work with Mac OS X v10.4.10 and Mandriva Linux 2007.1 (Spring). No manufacturer's drivers required. I have no info about extreme gaming, 3D or multimedia video perfomance.
