NEC MultiSync EA243WM-BK  Black  24
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Large widescreen, no dead pixels, standard TN panel I suppose.

Plenty of inputs, Display port, HDMI, DVI-D, VGA. Can sync the settings between multimonitors.

Fast enough for games? Not sure because these are supposed to be used 8-12 hours a day in an office setting.

Cons: The TN panel viewing angles are marketing hype (this applies to all manufacturers of TN panels). These panels have a pivot built into the stand, but are unuseable in the portrait (10:16 aspect). The viewing angle is displaced off perpendicular to the display, so that you need to turn the display about 15-25 degrees to get the best contrast from corner to corner. Otherwise colors shift or the contrast is visably different from corner to corner.

Even in landscape mode (16:10), the viewing angles are only optimal in a narrow angle. A viewing angle of 160-170+ based on a contrast ratio of 10:1 or 5:1 is not a useable contrast ratio when the best CR is 1000:1 face-on. Basically a small shift of my head or chair and I have to readjust the monitor at the base to get rid of color shifts or contrast changes.

Also I'm noticing visible grain in the more muted colors, such as greys and whites. It may have to do with the inherent dithering that TN uses to mimic 24-bit True Color from 18-bit capabilities.

Other Thoughts: Caveat: 2 of these TN panels are replacing 2 21" Nec Multisync 2190Uxp monitors. Old monitors were 4:3 (1600x1200), and they had great color, contrast, and viewing angles (S-PVA panels).
