NEC MultiSync LCD2180WG

 

The $6,749 NEC MultiSync LCD2180WGLED is the first monitor we've tested that has a panel backlit entirely by light-emitting diodes (LEDs). This technology supposedly reproduces colors more accurately than traditional LCDs or CRTs. While it definitely...

Produces excellent color quality; pivots between landscape and portrait mode.

Megaexpensive; lacks pivoting software; height not adjustable.

Though the NEC MultiSync LCD2180WGLED features new LED backlight technology, we're unconvinced it's worth $6,700. Most professional users will be better served by other, less expensive LCDs.

NEC SpectraView 2180

 

Apple makes some really gorgeous-looking flat-panel displays for hooking up to a Power Mac desktop, but when it comes to serious graphic work, looks aren't everything. What most graphics professionals want from a screen is colour neutrality, reasonably...

Superb resolution, Multiple inputs, Height adjustment, Colour certified, Viewing hood

Silly software activation

The SpectraView 2180 has a native resolution of 1,600x1,200 pixels, and it's simply awesome in terms of the evenness of its illumination and the sharpness on offer. However, when it comes to the software that is shipped with the SpectraView, we have a...

NEC SpectraView Reference 21 (LCD2180WG LED)

 

Need to upgrade the monitors in your colour-critical workflow? If so, take a look at NEC's Reference 21 LCD with LED backlight.

In my opinion, NEC has invested wisely when it created the Reference 21. By combining two technologies that carry with them obvious benefits, NEC will surely reap the rewards. The LED backlight with its wide colour gamut capability, robustness,...

NEC MultiSync LCD2180UX 21.3in TFT

 

The people at NEC/Mitsubishi kindly dropped by the other day and left this rather big LCD on my desk. Very kind of them indeed, I thought, and it's a real shame that they'll be back to pick it up soon. Anyway for now I'm not complaining since this is...

Best Design & Photographer Monitor: NEC spectraview 2180 LED reference

 

This backlight monitor with red, green and blue LEDs generates white light with a colour space more or less equal to the standard working space. This means that all the colours within an image are rendered in a natural way. The monitor can change the...

$6,500 and it still doesn't beat a good CRT

 

I bought this monitor several weeks ago and I will say that it is definitely a great monitor. However, looking back on it I can now say I cannot believe I spent this much money on it. I was always a believer in CRT over LCD (I do a lot of image and...

NEC MultiSync LCD2180WG

 

I have been waiting for non CRT displays to have color rendition for film editing, and now I see a new product that is getting close. The price is still too high, the best CRT photo-editing displays are in the $1800 range. I have to admit it's not a...
