NEC MultiSync EA241WM

 

NEC's EA241WM has a number of features that set it apart from the rest of the displays in this field: It's the only model to support a full complement of ergonomic features (tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment); it's the only model with an...

USB 2.0 hub; sturdy and adjustable; great thumb-stick constroller; no backlight contamination

Expensive; no HDMI port; poorly differentiates between black and dark shades of gray and colors

The EA241WM’s tiny thumb-stick controller is one of the best tools we’ve used for making minute adjustments to a display’s brightness and contrast levels. The NEC performed better than any of the other monitors in DisplayMate’s black-level test, with...

NEC EA261WM

 

Our initial impression of NEC's widescreen 26-inch EA261WM LCD monitor was overwhelmingly positive, primarily due to the thought put into its ergonomics. What puzzles us most about monitor design is why—even with obscenely expensive panels—user comfort...

Great ergonomic options; eco friendly

Poor performance in grayscale testing

With its wealth of ergonomic adjustments, we could see the EA261WM being a hit in the workplace, particularly if you need to share what’s on your screen with people close to you; however, while the panel’s rich colors impressed us, we found its trouble...

NEC AS221WM

 

The NEC AS221WM is an affordable business display that delivers solid performance and is easy on your utility bill. Features are scarce, however, and the panel?s resolution could be higher.

Affordable. Energy efficient. Good color and grayscale performance

Relatively low resolution. No HDMI port. Short on features

The NEC AS221WM is a capable budget monitor that will help businesses cut costs across the board. It offers reasonably good color and grayscale performance and won't stress your electric bill, but it could stand to use additional features, such an HDMI...

NEC EA261WM

 

A very thin (0.6-inch) matte black bezel surrounds the screen, which has a resolution of 1,920 by 1,200 pixels and uses wide-gamut technology to display up to 92 percent of the NTSC color spectrum. A large, round base and telescoping arm provide plenty...

Excellent small-text reproduction. Highly adjustable stand. Includes USB hub

Expensive. Weak grayscale and vertical viewing angle performance. No HDMI port

The NEC EA261WM provides an ultrawide viewing area, some nice ergonomic and power-saving features, and great small-text reproduction, but it comes up short in terms of grayscale and viewing-angle performance, and doesn't come cheap.

NEC MultiSync EA221WM-BK

 

Wide-screen LCD monitors of the same dimensions can vary greatly in price and features, which makes comparison shopping a necessary step. For example, the Dell P2210 may be found online for $100 cheaper than the NEC MultiSync EA221WM (the subject of...

The NEC MultiSync EA221WM has full, four-way ergonomic support, good movie and game performance, and multiple USB ports. Also, it has a great lower-viewing angle and built-in speakers with a headphone jack.

The NEC MultiSync EA221WM has apparent backlight bleeding, no HDMI, and a fairly high asking price.

The NEC MultiSync EA221WM has a host of features and good overall performance for a fairly high price.

GCN Lab Review: NEC MultiSync EA241WM LCD monitor

 

The $455 price tag is tempting for a 24-inch LCD, but you can get more quality for not much more money.

Fine images not uniform throughout screen, major light bleeding problems, poor display of both light and dark images

Overall the NEC MultiSync EA261WM is a high quality screen that does most things right and in the process it also delivers very good image quality without ghosting or evidence of input lag. Still the viewing angle problem that exists in all TN panel...

NEC – 26-inch Multisync EA261WM – Review

 

It's tough buying a monitor.

Expert review by:

NEC EA221WM

 

The NEC EA221WM performs quite well on the dark end of the gray scale, but its whites are oversaturated. And although features like excellent height and angle adjustment and USB ports are certainly welcome, they don't easily justify the premium price.

Good low-end grayscale performance; excellent adjustment options; four-port USB hub, headphone port

White levels oversaturated; noticeable backlight leak; expensive

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Wide-screen LCD monitor includes environment-friendly features.

NEC Display Solutions' new MultiSync EA261WM wide-screen LCD monitor, part of the company's EA (Enterprise Advanced) series, targets corporate, education, and government users. However, this 26" flat-panel display has features that make it a very good...
