NEC MultiSync E231W

 

The NEC MultiSync E231W is an energy-efficient 23-inch business display offering full adjustability and solid performance.

Good color, text, and dark grayscale performance. Fully adjustable stand. Energy efficient.

Some backlight seepage. No USB ports or speakers.Weak light grayscale performance.

NEC MultiSync E231W review: NEC MultiSync E231W

 

NEC MultiSync E231W

The NEC MultiSync E231W has full ergonomic support, a robust and useful OSD, and all at a relatively low price for the package.

The NEC MultiSync E231W's performance in games lags behind the best 23-inchers, and its aesthetics are uninspiring. Also, its preset setting are disappointing, necessitating some calibration.

The NEC MultiSync E231W offers a lot of features for a relatively low price.

Monitor Review: NEC MultiSync E231W

 

While energy efficiency is nice and all, there are certainly more things to consider in choosing a monitor. In addition to the previously mentioned 1080p resolution, this 23-incher offers a 5-millisecond standard response time, though NEC's Rapid...

NEC MultiSync E231W review

 

With its square, plain design and adjustable stand, the Full HD NEC MultiSync E231W is a typical business monitor. It includes comprehensive Eco settings, including a screen that lets you see how much carbon and money you've saved. Whether the wind is...

The business-friendly design may not turn any heads, but the E231W's adjustable stand may appeal; however image quality suffers from dull colours.

NEC E231W monitor review

 

NEC E231W monitor review,An office-oriented display with impressive eco credentials, technology news from Paul Lester at v3.co.uk

Impressive eco credentials; smooth height/tilt/swivel stand; DisplayPort connectivity

Auto-brightness and environment presets can be ineffective; overall performance could be better; awkward menus

The E231W is an impressively flexible and eco conscious display, but it isn't complemented with similarly impressive performance. While it is possible to establish a good image through manual adjustment, many of the environment and automatic settings...

NEC - E231W

 

NEC has a clear focus on eco-savings with its new E231W, a 23-inch LED-backlit screen that is aimed at office environments due both to these benefits and to a flexible, adjustable stand. When coupled with a ...

The NEC E231W does seem more suited towards an office environment, and home users who are likely to judge a display on its ability to handle gaming and video playback or photo editing are likely to become frustrated at the degree of fine-tuning...
