Very wide display gives lots of desktop space, lots of brightness power
Colour uniformity was very good, the biggest discrepency coming at 83% Brightness, along the top third with the middle showing a Delta-E of 4.9. Everything else was much lower. Colour accuracy overall gave an average Delta-E of 1.84 with the problem area being dark cyan colours at 4.72. Colour coverage results showed a slightly disappointing 99% sRGB coverage, 76% NTSC and 82% Adobe RGB. In the brightness test the panel could reach a high 365 cd/m2. Contrast ratio is advertised at 1000:1.
Straight out of the box the performance is practically perfect
Displays like the NEC PA242W are expensive, but they also push the boundaries for what a display can do. Technologies like 3D LUTs and more uniform lighting will likely trickle down to more affordable hardware, but it will take time. For now if you want the most accurate, most uniform display that you can buy, you want the NEC PA242W. It's designed with image/video professionals in mind, and it performs admirably.
PVA panel technology allows for wide viewing angles and high contrast ratio.
The slow response time does call into question this monitor's ability to be good for gaming or home theater use, but aside from that, the specs speak in favor of the NEC EX231WP-BK as a great LCD monitor. The color reproduction and high contrast ratio makes the viewing experience vivid. The adjustability adds a great deal of flexibility and makes it an excellent choice for vertical position usage.
Very good feature set for power saving including auto brightness, human sensor and ECO modes
The EX231Wp I think is well summarised by it's 'Cool Office' name. Here you have a screen which looks very attractive and sleek on any desk, featuring a very thin bezel and stand and a slim profile from the side. It has a very wide range of power saving options and features and extras like auto brightness control, human sensing and ECO modes are very useful for those who are energy conscious or when using many screens in an office environment.
Display is definitely solid
NEC's PA301w delivers the performance and features that professionals demand, including a number of extras that easily distinguish it in the 30-inch class. On-display calibration if you have an i1D2, power management modes and reporting, internal color space clamping through a user-configurable hardware LUT, and a bulit-in USB KVM switch to accompany the two sets of DVI-D and DisplayPort inputs definitely differentiate the PA301w.
Wealth of features and tools
The NEC MultiSync EA232WMi certainly isn't as cheap as budget TN panels. But from its depth of colour and versatility of image, down to the functional design and the wealth of features and tools, this is an excellent screen for professionals and up-market home users. Avid gamers, though, might want to try before they buy.
Slim, energy efficient, environmentally friendly and, allows for a thinner enclosure.
The NEC MultiSync EX231W is an ultra-slim and lightweight, 23" LED-backlit LCD monitor that weighs only slightly over 9 pounds. It offers a full 1080p high-definition resolution with a 25,000:1 contrast ratio and 250-nits brightness.
Designed for an extremely reduced energy bill, the EX231 hosts a special ECO mode that purportedly uses only 16W of powerâ?? which according to experts is less than that used by most lightbulbs.
Well-designed and slender display.
Despite being based on a TN panel, NEC's MultiSync EX231W continues the company's reputation for high quality monitors. It doesn't sport a wealth of connectivity options and it's not the most vivid image around, but for everyday use, this is a well-designed and slender display with solid image quality. If only it were priced lower it would enjoy broader appeal.
Range of power-saving features
NEC's MultiSync EX231W lags behind the IPS-based displays like ViewSonic's VP2365wb when it comes to image quality but, outside of colour-critical applications, its lower power-consumption and range of power-saving features tick all the right boxes. With slick looks combined with a solid, practical range of features, there's no doubt that the NEC is a serious business contender.
Impressive eco credentials
The E231W is an impressively flexible and eco conscious display, but it isn't complemented with similarly impressive performance. While it is possible to establish a good image through manual adjustment, many of the environment and automatic settings can be frustrating to work with, so if hassle-free picture quality is more important that the other benefits on offer, it may disappoint.
