NEC MultiSync EA232WMi


The NEC MultiSync EA232WMi is a full featured 23-inch business monitor that delivers outstanding performance at a price that won't strain your budget.

Excellent performance. Solid feature set. Reasonably priced.

No auto-pivot. Some motion blur.

Conclusion With above average performance, an ergonomic stand, a four-port USB hub, and a sub-$300 sticker price, the NEC MultiSync EA232WMi is one of the best deals around and earns our Editors' Choice award for mid-sized business monitors, replacing...

NEC MultiSync monitor looks stunning — despite eco quirkiness


The NEC MultiSync EA232WMi-BK LCD monitor looks fantastic but is heavy-handed in its attempt to be environmentally friendly.

Brilliant contrast ratio; LED backlight produces great black-based images

Ambient-light sensor tends to dim screen too much; ECO Mode snapped back on after being disabled

NEC MultiSync EA232WMi Monitor


First Look Review: LED-backlit 23" display delivers high quality at a great price.

All told, this monitor is suitable for a broad range of work, including design and visualization. Attention to ecological considerations and the high quality make it an excellent product, and the suggested retail price of $299 makes it a great buy....

NEC MultiSync EA232WMi review


While you can get a monitor with an IPS panel for less, the Full HD 23in NEC MultiSync EA232WMi has a few tricks up its sleeve to justify its price. Its matt-black case and chunky stand aren't as flashy as some monitor designs, but it's eminently...

A fully-adjustable stand and USB hub combine with its great image quality to produce a fine monitor - our only concern is the lack of an HDMI input

NEC MultiSync EA232WMi review


Cheaper, lesser screens may make do with humble TN (Twisted Nematic) panel technology, but the 23in NEC MultiSync EA232WMi is made of rather silkier stuff. Built around a high-calibre IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel, the NEC MultiSync EA232WMi promises...

The NEC MultiSync EA232WMi certainly isn't as cheap as budget TN panels. But from its depth of colour and versatility of image, down to the functional design and the wealth of features and tools, this is an excellent screen for professionals and...

Expert review by : Rasmus Larsen (



NEC has released the successor to the much acclaimed EA231WMi that has been on our recommendations list since its introduction. The successor is called EA232WMi and comes with a new 23-inch IPS panel with LED backlight. It also features a resolution of...

Picture quality; Shadow detailing; Ergonomic stand and matte bezel

Black level; Backlight bleeding ; 16:9 aspect ratio

NEC EA232WMi has many similarities to the predecessor EA231WMi. It has the same ergonomic stand with height, tilt, swivel and pivot adjustment and the same joystick for easy navigation in the on-screen menus. The bezel is matte which is a plus in my...

NEC 23in EA232WMI


NEC's MultiSync EA232WMi features an IPS (In Plane Switching) panel. Designed to offer excellent viewing angles and strong colour rendition with its LED backlight and ambient light sensor, it boasts a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and offers...

Consumer review (



My first IPS panel and I love it. I even compared side by side to my old Samsung TN, blew it away. I had wanted to buy a set of IPS monitors for years and the prices finally came down. I got mine for 234 each with free shipping

Amazing wide angle viewing. Crisp sharp images. No image ghosting, or back light bleed. Very sturdy. Games very well, play SC2 and Diablo 3. Vibrant colors

Not very attractive looking, pointless integrated speakers and USB. A little bulky. My biggest con being no display port cables in the box

Rich colors, bright backlight, good menu/software


Overall, the EA232WMI-BK is a great monitor, especially considering the price. Color quality is noticeably better than TFT-based screens, and the stand is perfect. The relatively slow response time could be an issue for some, but personally I don't...

The colors of the EA232WMI are rich thanks to the IPS panel and bright thanks to the LED backlight. The menu system is intuitive and includes every option I want and some I avoid (see Cons). The native 1920x1080 resolution is matched to HD ; The IPS...

The monitor has no HDMI port, although HDMI->DVI cables are easy to find. I am using one and it works perfectly ; The monitor doesn't have 1:1 pixel matching for lower-than-native resolutions - but then, most don't, and it does have a 'match aspect...

Good monitor but no DisplayPort cable


I've just received my monitor and the quality is fine. However, it does not ship with a DisplayPort cable or even an HDMI cable. It only comes with DVI and VGA cables. So if you need a DisplayPort cable, you have to add another $20-30 to the cost.
