Multisync 20WMGX2

 

NEC's MultiSync 20WMGX2 follows on the success of its smaller siblings, the 70GX2 and 90GX2. Like its smaller siblings, this 20-inch wide-screen LCD employs a glossy screen that shows rich colors and sharp detail. However, the 20MGX2 also includes...

Excellent colors and detail on stills Good TV features, including remote

TV image quality slightly soft

Its $699 price (as of 5/18/06) would be steep for an ordinary 20-inch desktop monitor. For an excellent desktop monitor that's also a decent TV, though, it's a good deal

NEC MultiSync 20WMGX2

 

With premium parts and a high price tag, the NEC MultiSync 20WMGX2 differentiates itself from the pack—unfortunately, it's not all in good way.

Fast response time; good image quality; bright; integrated NTSC tuner and remote; speakers; flexible on-screen display.

Pricey; glossy screen can create severe reflection problems in a normally lit environment; unable to set 4:3 aspect ratio correctly.

NEC Multisync 20WMGX2

 

NEC's 20WMGX2 20-inch monitor is like the one fat kid left in the dodgeball game, and we've got all the balls on our side.

Bright as all get-out and loaded with extras

Expensive; majorly flawed

We would have loved for a bigger, more feature-packed version of the glorious, glossy 90GX2 to steal our hearts. Instead, this LCD has left us bitter and cynical.

A Monitor for All Seasons

 

The NEC MultiSync 20WMGX2 provides plenty of evidence that the line between gaming and traditional monitors is quickly blurring.

There was a time when I believed that the world of computer monitors could easily be broken down into two distinct categories. On one side were the gaming monitors—light, portable, and boasting a high response time, they served gamers well. On the...

Whether you have a home office, are studying for your law degree, or just love playing games, one thing you definitely need is a powerful monitor for your computer. For most people, a moderately priced flat-panel LCD screen will give them all they need...

Complete Junk x2

 

For the money, I am not impressed.

Decent all around

The TV Tuner resolution is very disappointing to me. Coax using a short cable with good quality solid copper quad shield cable was very bad. Other connections get better, but none are good

Perfect display solution

 

Initially it looks a bit pricey for this 20 inch guy. But I can promise that you can never get this high color quality from those cheaper 22 inches. Plus, Newegg's price is amazing, with a free combo HP color ink printer and 100$ rebate, who can ask...

After a rediculous long time research and multiple returns, finally I found my dreamed LCD monitor. This NEC has perfect picture quality, especially its color, very saturate and accurate. I am very picky with colors. The major reason for previous...

Not I can think of now
