3 out of 5 eggsBeautiful business monitor

Pros: The monitor case is nice and solid. When handling it, the plastic doesn't creak like it's going to break like some monitors.
The screen has a matte finish as well as the bezel. I hate flashy monitors, so this is a pro for me.
The little power LED is very small and not that annoying blue that everyone is doing these days.
Screen quality is very good, the contrast is great even at 45% contrast and 49% brightness.

The speakers actually have okay volume. I was surprised. Don't expect lots of dynamic range of course.

All of the power and menu buttons are actually buttons. They are tiny, but they are located underneath the monitor and it's easy to find them and use them.

English as a first language customer service, quick to try to correct the problem too.

Cons: The biggest problem is the buzzing. The monitor makes a constant buzzing noise regardless of where the brightness control is. Maybe I have more sensitive hearing, or it is the fact that I have a cabinet above that reflects noise more, but no other CCFL backlit monitor I have makes this noise, including in the same location.

I have tried different cables, different power sources, unplugging the speaker cable, to no avail. The sound immediately goes away on powering off.

Other Thoughts: I contacted NEC since NewEgg wasn't willing to do anything, and they quickly sent out a 2nd monitor at their expense with a prepaid return label. I was very excited to try the new one, thinking I must have gotten a defective one.

Unfortunately the new one makes the exact same noise. It sounds like a power transformer maybe?

I sent the 2nd one back for their repair team to look at and diagnose. In the meantime I am dealing with the buzzing. Sometimes I just turn it off after a while, because it gets annoying. Luckily I have a Samsung LED monitor that I use for some of my work.

I hope that NEC can help me because I don't think a replacement will fix the problem.

4 out of 5 eggsMisleading specs are misleading

Pros: - Subtle design
- Good colors and response for the type of screen

Cons: Specs indicate that viewing angles are 176/176. That made me think this might be an IPS panel or eIPS at least. Definitely a long shot, given the price, but I jumped on it.
Unfortunately, this is, indeed, a TN panel and has nowhere near 176-degree viewing angles (in practice that is, not some cheating technique they use to inflate the specs).

Other Thoughts: Good screen nonetheless. Although may not be worth extra $20-30 compared to some ViewSonic and Asus screens. Still cheaper than comparable Samsung.

5 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied

Pros: I've purchased two of these monitors to date. The first one I bought for my wife's PC and I was so impressed with the overall picture quality and how it handled lots of different applications that I purchased one for myself. I was able to get rid of a hulking 70 pound CRT from my desk. I'm a gamer, predominately World of Warcraft, and this monitor is more than adequate for games.

I also felt the price was reasonable.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this monitor to anyone who was considering replacing a CRT with a flat screen.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Looking

Pros: No bad pixels

Cons: No DVI cable or owners manual included in box, only a quick start pamphlet and an analog cable.

Other Thoughts: Speaker aren't very good, but I won't be using them anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding support!

Pros: Good monitor, reasonable price for a well made monitor.

Cons: No disk, no driver. NEC thought there was 'spose to be a disk in the box, but there wasn't. Don't know whose fault that is.

Other Thoughts: I had difficulty installing as a second monitor with Nvidia card, but it was easy to get support from NEC and they emailed me the driver.

Outstanding support!!
