2 out of 5 eggsDied after 2 years.

Pros: Great Display quality.

Cons: Died after 2 years. Sorry, but LCDs from this and other manufacturers have been dying on me well before their warranty periods, more than any other devices, and I'm getting kinda tired of it. No matter the quality of the device, I need them to work, and work reliably.

The return process was flawless, so I'm bumping this up an egg.

Other Thoughts: Focus on Quality Assurance first and foremost electronics manufacturers!

1 out of 5 eggsBad Back-Lights. NO REFUNDS!

Pros: Great picture when it works, decent price.

Cons: We order three EA231WMI's on March 2010. The first back-light failure occurred on in December, 29th 2010. NEC sent us a refurbished unit. The second back-light failure occurred on March, 1st 2011. Being in the electronics industry, I understand that bad batches happen and I was willing to accept a monitor from a different batch. Technical support could not explain the monitor's high failure rate and was not willing to compromise (refund, different batch, or different monitor). Having two monitors fail in one year is a bad sign, so I wanted a refund.

On March 1st, NEC passed refund responsibility onto Newegg. On March 30th, Newegg (rightly) stated NEC's terms and condition state, "Repair. No refund from manufacturer." I really don't see why this was Newegg's problem.

Our company has used NEC for a long time. We were expecting more in terms of reliability and some sort of customer satisfaction policy for products still under warranty from a brand name company like NEC.

Other Thoughts: Given no choice, the RMA for the second monitor was filed on April 5th.

5 out of 5 eggsThe absolute best there is

Pros: Sharp, clear, sturdy, well designed, spectacular.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I purchased one, liked it so much, bought another one. Last week purchased the EA232WMi (led version) from NEC because I could not find it on Newegg's site, it is even better.
I can no longer use my Acer monitors after watching the NEC's, the quality is so much better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor!

Pros: Having owned many cheap TN panels, I must say that the build quality of this monitor is a nice step up. Zero dead pixels, controls feel solid and most importantly the colors are brilliant. I've not noticed any hue differential (overly pink) that has been mentioned in other reviews, but I am not a professional digital artist either.

Cons: The speakers, as is to be expected, are bad.

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied 100%

Pros: The price was what caught my attention then finding out it was an IPS panel sold me. The colors are incredible and pop out of the screen. I'm into graphic design and a little photography. I have been training my eyes and am starting to see when colors are not accurate or informed. This monitor is very accurate with colors ! I am using a calibrated ICC profile for this monitor and i'm so impressed. My monitor has no issues with color shifting, dead pixels or back light bleeding. Thank goodness because that was my only setback at first. This must be one of the good pieces from the ware house. NEC is very well known for their colors and i think i am now a true NEC fan. Also Newegg's service is very accurate as well i got my delivery in like two or three business days from my order date. It came right on time. I will definitely be ordering from them again. If you are on a budget, but want a quality IPS panel monitor like me this is the monitor to buy !

Cons: NONE ! People are complaining about the speakers, but they are not and issue for me. I didn't buy this monitor for the speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this monitor

Pros: I have had this monitor for about 10 months now, and can't speak too highly of it. I deliberately opted for IPS over the standard-issue fare. Great colors, crisp display, good viewing angles. Rotation is a huge help for the occasional work-related task (I use it for document processing). I was worried initially about the response time being so slow relative to other products, but it's hardly noticable when gaming (I play a number of FPS') and it has a "gaming" mode to make it more comfortable. Easily adjustable, solid, stand with height, spin, tilt, and swivel, good cable routing. USB ports a plus.

Cons: No HDMI (has displayport). Speakers are very mediocre, very "tin-ny", but I never intended to use the speakers anyway.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from "Eco" mode. Bleech.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good but tradeoff between Color shift & Viewing angle

Pros: -Great viewing angle
-Great price for IPS panel (why shell out $$$ for an apple display? well unless you have money)
-No dead pixels
-Non-glossy screen!
-Very nice colors
-Compare this to my 23" Apple Cinema Display at work, I don't see any real difference (except the con below)
*A class above my other TN panel

Cons: -Slight color shift from left to right (pinkish coloration on the far right side). Unless you keep staring at the white background, it is not noticeable.

Other Thoughts: -Use it with Snow Leopard @1080p resolution (make sure to select Overscan setting as well otherwise it's blurry)
-Budget IPS monitor and an Apple alternative for a web designer!

5 out of 5 eggsA good general monitor

Pros: Very Sturdy, very heavy.
With my particular monitor I got only a negligible amount of clouding around the edges and no dead pixels. The monitor is fast enough for me to play an FPS game without complaining.

Cons: Not enough to complain for 289.99

Other Thoughts: The slight hue difference from left to right is there. But unless you are doing critical color work it shouldn't be a problem. I say its a good trade off for the viewing angle.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome monitor

Pros: Picture quality, viewing angle, build quality, ease adjustments,

Cons: No HDMI

Other Thoughts: I can't imagine a better monitor for photo editing at this price point. There is a Dell and a Viewsonic, but both were higher priced. Excellent for viewing videos. I have not done gaming with this monitor. If that is your priority I'm sure you can do better. Four my main uses which are photo editing and video viewing, this monitor has been perfect. The only thing better would be cheaper and bigger, but for the real world this monitor has been a great purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsMac users take note!

Pros: great IPS monitor for the price for photo work. Pivots to vertical mode.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Playing around I set this monitor to a different resolution and when I went back to 1920x1080 the monitor was blurry. It worked fine on PAL and VGA modes. I called NEC and they had no solution. I finally found the answer to correct this:

Open Displays preferences and put a checkmark in the box for "Show displays in menu bar" Under the resulting display icon that now appears in the menu bar, drop down the menu and scroll to "Number of Recent Items" and set it to 10.

Now go back and drop the menu again and you should see 10 choices of selectable resolutions. Often times there will be two for 1920 x 1080 and one of them will be progressive.

Sure enough I had two entries for 1920 x 1080 and one of them worked.
