NEC Multisync PA241W

 

Designed with imaging professionals in mind, the NEC MultiSync PA241W ($1,049 list) delivers the kind of performance required by photographers and video editors, or anybody who requires a high degree of color and grayscale accuracy. A built-in KVM...

Very good performance. Excellent viewing angles. Highly adjustable stand. Four-year warranty

Pricey. No HDMI port

The NEC MultiSync PA241W is a well appointed 24-inch display offering outstanding color, grayscale, and text quality. Most consumers may balk at its $1K price tag, but imaging professionals will appreciate its performance and robust feature set.

A great display.

 

Reds will appear more saturated in non-color managed programs. You can setup Firefox to be color managed so that way you can view photos on websites as they are intended. Non-color managed programs (games) benefit from this by looking especially more...

This is one of few true 10-bit IPS displays for this price level. Color clarity is excellent especially when calibrated with an NEC SpectraSensor Pro using SpectraView II software ; The monitors input latency is NOT noticable when playing games at any...

There is minimal backlight bleed on the bottom right corner of my display, but is barely noticable during use. The reality is that this cannot be avoided with any IPS panel you buy ; It's not LED. At least LED color accurate monitors haven't gotten...

Nice high-end photo editing monitor

 

My monitor is driven by an EVGA 01G-P3-1361-KR GeForce GTX 460 video card at default resolution (1920x1200 60Hz) over a DVI-D connection, which works fine. The monitor does support 10-bit colour depth which requires use of the DisplayPort, but I am...

I needed a high-end monitor for a Photoshop workstation build. I use mostly the AdobeRGB colour space for digital still photography, and so I needed a wide gamut monitor that could display as much of that colour space as possible. I also needed...

My only gripe is minor and has to do with the way the ports are located on the monitor. Without a mirror it is almost impossible to connect the cables because the ports are all facing down. However, since cabling is not something one changes...

Excellent Quality

 

Just the uniformity issue..for $900 that should not be present but everything else is perfect on this monitor.

Excellent monitor. This replaced a good BenQ monitor of 3 years (expected longer life). This one has 4 year warranty..colors, VIEWING ANGLE and minimal backlight bleeding or uniformity. I didn't know there were different panels and I bought a garbage...

Small amount of backlight bleeding top left and bottom right which is a shame for the price but these days companies don't build or take pride in what they make it seems. I got tired of looking for a good replacement for last monitor and this one works...

Nice bright colours, with sharp detail

Great Picture Quality

Worth the Price

 

It is worth the price. If you are looking at this and the P241, then the only difference is the wide gamut and the standard gamut panel. Other than that, the viewing angles are great, the brightness compensation (to even out all sections of the...

A customer

 

Wonderful color, wonderful angle of view, great stuff out of the box. I've given it high ratings in all aspects, but I realize it's pricey. Nonetheless, if one wants quality one will have to pay for it. NEC's MultiProfiler app sounds intriguing, and if...

It's about as expensive as 24in monitors get, but is it also the best you can buy?

Expensive and impressively flexible, but only the most demanding professionals need apply

NEC has released their new PA models and we looked at the 24-inch PA241W earlier. In this test we will take look at the professional SpectraView model in 27-inches called SpectraView PA271 targeted at graphic, editing and post production. It uses a...

Price; Black level; Minor deviations in the color temperature presets; No A-TW polarizer

NEC SpectraView PA271 is a more expensive variant of the PA271W targeted at graphic, editing and post production. It has very extensive picture calibration options and features such as PIP (picture in picture), 2xUSB hub with a USB switch, and a stand...

NEC PA241W
