NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi 25.5-Inch Wide-Screen LCD Monitor

 

Lacks the extras, style, and standout performance we expect from an expensive 26-inch (25.5-inch viewable) wide-screen.

ownloadable display settings software ; Full physical adjustments

Awkward cable management ; No pivot software

The monitor has one of the most awkward cable management systems I've tested. Plastic loops on the back of the stand point at different, seemingly random angles. The stand cover could barely close on the cords that I used

NEC Multisync LCD2690WUXi monitor Review and Prices

 

The NEC Multisync LCD2690WUXi is a 26-inch widescreen monitor with some remarkable capabilities that color pros will love, as well as a somewhat slow response time that gamers will hate.

Accurate color, crisp text, good image detail, fully adjustable stand, three video inputs

Slow pixel response time, strange cable management system

NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV monitor

 

Though this big, bright 26-inch display costs a pretty penny, its color calibration features—as well as for managing backlight and color consistency over time—make the LCD2690WUXiSV a tool all serious color geeks should consider.

Includes colorimeter for hardware calibration; provides extensive tools for color consistency; pivot enabled

Expensive; a little washed out at default settings

The display sports a simple but elegant design with a thin black bezel—helpful if you need to position two or more displays together in a relatively seamless array. The display's menu system is easy to follow, and the on-screen descriptions that appear...

Nec MultiSync LCD2690WUXi: the first 26 inch (page 1: 26 inches: the end of 23/24 inches) - BeHardware

 

Game and movie grades are not easy to establish. On the one hand, objectively, we find the low reaction time unfortunate, which doesn't match the announced response time and the strong twinkling in video sequences. On the other hand, subjectively,...

If you are looking for a monitor with accurate colour representation the NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi is right for you.

Highly accurate colour representation, tilt and lift functions, good graphics and text reproduction

Limited horizontal viewing angle, low-end contrast ratio and brightness ratings.

Good colour reproduction, Sharp pictures, Extensive calibration options

Some contrast issues, Minor noise in movie playback

A strong all purpose display panel, NEC's MultiSync LCD2490WUXi is a good choice for those after a big display for a variety of tasks.

NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi

 

Sometimes a 24in widescreen just isn't big enough. NEC is on hand with the 26in MultiSync LCD2690WUXi.

While gamers will find much to enjoy on the MultiSync LCD2690WUXi the Dell 30in will offer better value. However, for those who are looking to finally replace a much trusted CRT or go properly large for professional use, the NEC is a very fine choice....

NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi2 review

 

The new ‘squared' version has the same 26in screen and 1920x1200 resolution, but boasts better uniformity of colour across the screen and a wider colour gamut - so with the NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi2 you'll see smoother gradation of shades, especially...

The NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi2 offers fantastic colour reproduction for the price, with detailed fine-tuning controls. It would be a perfect fit for a graphic designer with very high-grade – if not extreme – colour reproduction requirements.

NEC SpectraView 2690 review

 

Unfortunately the NEC SpectraView 2690 doesn't quite deliver on its promises.

We’d like to be more positive about the NEC SpectraView 2690. While it’s certainly not a bad monitor, the lack of integrated calibration takes away some of the appeal of the Spectraview system. It scores heavily on features, but not quite heavily...
