The EA231WMI combines a 23-inch screen with a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and a response time of 14ms

The NEC is a proper business screen that boasts the capabilities, resolution and screen real estate to make long work hours bearable.

IPS and FullHD Bundle: NEC MultiSync EA231WMi Monitor Review


Today we will discuss the test results obtained on one of the most interesting monitors from the practical prospective, which is available in stores freely. Get IPS and FullHD all in one. Find out how, from our new article.

The NEC MultiSync EA231WMi is a very good monitor for people who need high color accuracy, who do not like the narrow viewing angles of popular TN-based monitors, but who cannot afford a monitor with an S-IPS matrix.

NEC MultiSync EA231WMi - 23in Monitor


An IPS, Full HD panel and sub-£300 asking price make this monitor an exciting prospect.

Outstanding picture quality ; Sturdy monitor ; Good value

Small and cluttered on-screen display ; Ordinary aesthetic design ; No HDMI

There are one or two things about the NEC MultiSync EA231WMi that we'd change, but on the whole this is an excellent monitor. Its sturdy design, flexibility and excellent image quality all stand it in very good stead, making it one we'd recommend to...

NEC MultiSync EA231WMi review


Almost £300 is a lot of money for a 23in monitor, especially when you can buy a good-quality example for well under £200. However, NEC's EA231WMi is packed with features, and is aimed at business users rather than consumers.

A great 23in monitor, with excellent viewing angles and colour accuracy, but its high price is a lot to get over.

NEC MultiSync EA231WMi


Another high-quality monitor from NEC, but can it humble its cheaper competitors?

A quality IPS panel, a flexible stand and good image quality aren`t quite enough to topple the opposition

Expert review by: Rasmus Larsen (



NEC EA231WMi is a serious competitor to the Dell monitors that we have reviewed lately. The 23-inch EA231WMi is especially interesting because of its IPS panel that is regarded as one of the best LCD technologies by a lot of consumers today.

Picture quality and IPS panel; Ergonomics; Shadow detail; High resolution; Viewing angles

Eco Mode can alter gamma; Black level; Response time

NEC EA231WMi is one of the more interesting monitors today due to the IPS panel technology that Dell is also using in their 2209WA and U2410 monitors. Therefore my expectations were high but EA231WMi did not let me down.

NEC MultiSync EA231WMi Review


The NEC MultiSync EA231WMi has a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080, meaning that it has an aspect ratio of 16:9. While you lose vertical space compared with a 16:10 screen, this also explains why this screen doesn't cost upwards of £450. The really...

While the native resolution is 1,920 x 1,080, the NEC is also able to upscale to 1,920 x 1,200. However, not surprisingly, this results in a loss of image quality, particularly sharpness, as the screen overscans the image (essentially, it zooms in)....

After calibration using SpectraView with a target of 6500 and max brightness I had 750:1 contrast. The illumination was perfect. No color shift. No downside at all. Getting SpectraView is not optional. You must calibrate this monitor using a sensor..

This is just a incredible monitor for the money. I also purchased the SpectraView calibration software and X-Rite sensor. Calibration is a must. The end result is just awesome. I went thru 4 high end monitors before this one. They were all horrendously...

Great monitor!


Having owned many cheap TN panels, I must say that the build quality of this monitor is a nice step up. Zero dead pixels, controls feel solid and most importantly the colors are brilliant. I've not noticed any hue differential (overly pink) that has...

The speakers, as is to be expected, are bad

Satisfied 100%


The price was what caught my attention then finding out it was an IPS panel sold me. The colors are incredible and pop out of the screen. I'm into graphic design and a little photography. I have been training my eyes and am starting to see when colors...

NONE ! People are complaining about the speakers, but they are not and issue for me. I didn't buy this monitor for the speakers
