Pros: I wrote a review earlier on a 2nd NEC and this is my 3rd 24" NEC monitor and again no dead pixel. Great cheap gaming panel. I will reiterate that this is NOT a monitor to do color sensitive work such as professional photography or video editing. This monitor is good for everything else. You can't buy a professional caliber IPS monitor for $300 bucks and NEC does makes the P series for that. I have 2 LED backlit and one fluorescent. I'm going to have to buy a 3rd led since the colors are so m c nicer.
Cons: They aren't free
Other Thoughts: Gaming with NVidia surround on 3 NEC 24" monitor is immersive and intenseREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price for a GOOD 24" 1920 x 1200 TN panel. This is NOT a Professional IPS true color monitor. I use this for gaming 90% of the time and we watch DVD and Blu Rays 5% and I do normal stuff the other 5%. DVD/BR video is excellent with a monitor menu tweak. I need 1920 x 1200 for gaming because my first NEC is 1920 x 1200 and the only other panel that I considered was the $am$ung which make great panels but I've had a few dead pixels with the 2 $am$ungs that I've owned and with the 2 NEC 24" monitors that I've had I have had NO DEAD PIXELS. SOLD! This is the 2nd monitor of a 3 monitor Nvidia Surround View setup. I'm buying a 3rd NEC 24" 1920 x 1200 as soon as my credit card drops a littlle. THREE SCREEN GAMING...w00T!
Cons: The color on this monitor will NOT match an older flourescent back lit monitor very well. I wish all monitors were $1.00...with free shipping.

Pros: I got it a day earlier than expected. Plugged it into the slot where one of my old 88900GTS G92s went and kept the other 8800 for PhysX. Fraps showed 28 to 45 FPS in Crysis at 8x and Crysis Wahead at 16x in some of the GPU sucking scenes like inside the frozen sphere. The Just Cause 2 benchmark was maxed out completely at 32x and I got 43 FPS. I used 1900 X 1200 native resolution for the gaming benchmarks. No louder than the 8800 but a different pitch. Temps are 38 to 42 idle and 48 to 53 blasting the heck out of stuff with fan set at 75%. 3DMARKVantage went from 13,468 to 22,860 with PhysX on (which is a no-no is benchmark world). I used EVGA Precision to OC it in 2 steps to 800/1600/2000 so there is no reason to buy the Super clocked version in my humble opinion. Absolutely amazing improvement on an old system. Remember this is a DX10 board and PCIe 1.0.
Cons: None. I haven't upgraded the board and CPU to Sandybridge.
Other Thoughts: Thermaltake 850 W PSU, Q6600 OC'd 3.0 GHz, EVGA 680i board, 8Gig DDR2 at 956 MHz, 300 G Velociraptor, Antec 900 with 4 120mm fans and the 200 mm on top. 2-20 inch and 1-24 inch monitor, Dual boot Win7 64 and Ubuntu. I Love Newegg! The coupon for the 2 games is through steam which is great.READ FULL REVIEW
