Consumer review by: Chris (

Very very disappointed.


For the same money, you can get a different branch with much better specs.

It's big. 1920 x 1200 is nice

Don't be fooled by a low price tag, this thing is CHEAP in the worst sense of the word. It's not IPS. Viewing angles STINK and this thing color shifts ; NEC usually has top-of-the-line stuff, but this one misses the boat

Great Great Monitor


This monitor is very good at pivoting and height adjusting, so those of you that like those two things I recommend this monitor. It also came shipped already put together, and the price was very great. Once again Thank You NEC and New Egg.

I I'm very happy to say that I'm glad that I purchased this monitor. For a 24" monitor this thing comes fully loaded with the input slots, and the fact that its 1920x1200 is very great. I really recommend that anybody looking for a 24" monitor with all...

None that I can see

Monitor, Gaming


I bought the 'NEC EA243WM-BK' to replace a 'DELL UltraSharp 2407WFP' (circa Feb, 2007) for gaming. I'm a BF3 Colonel serv-star 10. I wanted specs that met or exceeded the Dell. Out of box: 2012 03 16 0852A Setup on 'Garage Test'. Dead pixel test (DPT)....

Meets or exceeds required specifications: <6ms, 1920 x 1200, LED, 24

does not have a built-in card reader. Not a deal breaker but the Dell had one

NEC Display Solutions LCD2490WUXi-BK Black 24.1" 16ms, 8ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 400 cd/m2 800:1 - Retail


I bought this to replace a dying samsung 19" piece of garbage and couldn't have been happier. I do a fair amount of graphics work and gaming and have just been blown away by how good everything looks on this thing. It's so bright, I mean really bright...

Incredible colors, uniformity and saturation. Anyone who works in any graphics field would be hard pressed to find a better monitor. Blacks are black, whites are white, colors are the color you'd expect them to be. I'm by no means an expert on monitors...

The stand seems to wobble a slight bit, nothing noticeable really unless you shake your monitor a lot for some reason, but I thought it worth mentioning

Sharp Image, Solid Construction


I bought the 24 inch NEC LCD monitor as a main monitor to supplement my WACOM pen tablet (20"). It works very well in that capacity. With solid construction, if a bit heavy, it will not get easily moved on my cluttered desk. Easily ...

Sharp image, solid construction, well balanced, excellent calibration, three PC connections

Expensive, heavy, no tilt/rotation, 1 bad pixel
