Pros: Works well on smooth roads.
Cons: The adapter plug does not fit snugly in the vehicle's 12v cigarette lighter receptacle and tends to fall out when driving on unpaved roads - and not necessarily rough roads at that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very good image quality
Cons: First of all, the image quality is good, but any substantial change in the viewing angle tends to make me think I'm looking at one of the old projection TVs with the Fresnel lens.
The main purpose of this review, however, is the utter stupidity of creating a monitor that you essentially cannot clean the face of. Had I known before hand that the ONLY way NEC recommends cleaning the screen is with a "microfiber cloth" (and the use of NO cleaning fluids, water or otherwise) I would have bought an Apple Cinema display - or anything more practical. I called NEC support and they could offer nothing but the "microfiber" cloth solution. When I asked what the heck is a microfiber cloth and where do you get one, the rep could give no answer except that I may have to find one at an electronics store somewhere.
Other Thoughts: So, now I have a monitor that I cannot clean if it gets anything on it more aggressive than lint - like a fingerprint - that would require some cleaner necessary to cut oil. Heaven forbid that a particle of spit should land on it! (Don't carry on ANY conversations by your monitor!) Do they honestly think that NOTHING ever gets on a screen but lint or dust? It's like buying a car and finding out AFTER you pay for it that you cannot clean the wind shield with anything but the wind.
If you EVER plan on cleaning your screen, do NOT buy this monitor.
In the owner's manual they illustrate that the screen can be not only tilted up and down, but turned side-to-side. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE!!! Should you try to rotate the screen sideways, you will break the support. It is clearly not designed to be viewed except directly in front of the stand.
I spent a long time reviewing monitors before I purchased this one, and did so because it had no bad reviews - until no
