NEC MultiSync PA271W

 

The NEC MultiSync PA271W is professional grade 27-inch monitor that delivers outstanding grayscale reproduction and solid color quality, and it's packed with features.

Solid grayscale and color performance. Loads of features and settings. High resolution.

No HDMI port. Bulky cabinet. Pricey.

Conclusion With a list price of over $1,100 the NEC MultiSync PA271W isn't cheap, but as is usually the case, premium quality commands premium dollars. Its 27-inch P-IPS panel offers impressive performance and a generous feature set, and its extensive...

NEC PA271W - When Accuracy and Consistency Matter

 

As long as I've been following, using, or writing about computers, NEC has been a leader in displays. From the early MultiSync monitors to their current line of LCDs, they have been focused more on pushing performance than on dropping price, which has...

Sometimes it is very easy to write a conclusion on a product that is at a premium price point. If Intel or AMD come out with a CPU that’s faster than anything else out there, you can easily say “If you need the performance, or can afford it without an...

NEC MultiSync PA271W review

 

$1,649! Yes, I just want to get the price out of the way as soon as I can. If you're a professional graphics artist and you don't buy the NEC MultiSync PA271W, its price probably scared you away. Still here? OK. Since you haven't moved on to another...

The NEC MultiSync PA271W performs incredibly well and has a ridiculously robust onscreen display.

The NEC MultiSync PA271W is more expensive than its closest competitor is, and it lacks several connections options such as HDMI.

The NEC MultiSync PA271W is an incredibly performing monitor that may be too expensive for what it offers.

Review: NEC MultiSync PA271W

 

For color professionals looking for a large, glare-free, ergonomically adjustable display with tons of color tweaking tools and technology to achieve and maintain accurate color over time, the NEC MultiSync PA2701W delivers.

If you're among these users who demand more, then the PA271W may be just what you need. In terms of ergonomic features, the PA217W offers height adjustment, swivels from left to right, tilts back and forth, and even rotates into portrait mode

NEC PA271W Professional LCD Monitor Review

 

For all but the most budget conscious buyers, piecing together a home brewed rig often entails forking over a premium for certain components, depending on what you're trying to accomplish. If you're a gamer, you probably bought a high-end graphics card...

10-bit panel ; 3D Look Up Tables (LUT) ; Integrated KVM ; Tons of easy-to-follow OSD controls ; Spectacular performance

No HDMII port ; It's thick and heavy ; Comparatively expensive

Performance Summary: NEC's MultiSync PA271W is the first monitor we've reviewed since adding DisplayMate to our suite of tests, which is both brutal and unapologetic when it comes to pointing out even the smallest flaws. As we review more panels,...
