NEC MultiSync PA241W

Happy with it, but some remarks:
1 it's not as sharp as my probook laptop screen when it displays text, and that matters because I use it for both photo and writing/programming
2 each time I rotate the screen, I have to change the windows settings manually (win 7 64b)
3 colors are calibrated for printing (very warm) and it would be nice to find a way to chose between a printing and web color "calibration"?

About points 1 and 3, I don't know if it would be better with another screen.

This is not an IPS monitor, is it? How does compare to IPS monitors?

From the NEC website:

This model utilizes an e-IPS panel for great imaging performance.

Using 27" LED Apple Cinema displays. I have an ideal lighting situation so the glare is a non issue. I can not stand the anti-glare coatings on most other monitors. I guess I am just very susceptible to the 3D sparkly look on them.

Tried a Dell U2711. Almost threw it in the trash immediately after turing it on. :) Gave it to my Dad instead.

I occasionally hook up an older Dell 2209WA. And when it is beside my ACD's, I can hardly stand to look at it either. Although I did use it as my only monitor for awhile. I just prefer the glossy displays.

Asus ProArt PA248Q.

Not a bad monitor. I like the USB 3.0 hub built in.

I use Asus VW246H. It's an ok monitor for casual computing and even games, but I find it producing inconsistent colors, even being calibrated on a regular basis.
Most of photos come out too dark, when printed.
That's one of the reason, I've started the topic. I'm starting to get more paid gigs and need to produce consistent results.

A curiosity took the best of me and I wanted to do a quick poll:

What's the monitor you're using and what you like/dislike about it? (I'm talking, of course, for photos/video processing)

So, make a poll! :cool:

Poll would be useless, since there are literally hundreds of monitor models. I'm just trying to see if there is a trend and so far, there isn't much data to build upon yet.

Type, subtype, and size would be plenty.
LCD, IPS, 27" for instance. Maybe throw in a separate poll for brand of the day.

Mine is a Dell 30" U3011 ultrasharp wide-gamut monitor. It's OK, but just "OK". I would prefer a high-performance monitor like a pair of 27" Eizos or NEC's 27" flagship monitor. The panel on my Dell is flimsy and unevenly lit. You usually get what you pay for and Dell makes a very good bang-for-the-buck monitor, but bang-for-the-buck also means there are some compromises. I would prefer a no-compromises monitor. ;)


I just hooked up my Dell new U3011 and I'm very pleased with it. It's driven by an AMD Radeon 2gb 7770 and just calibrated with i1 Display Pro. No issues with it being unevenly lit and I don't feel that the build quality is flimsey.

It's interesting to hear all the praise of the NEC Wide Gamut 27". NEC had a batch of 27" displays that were hit and miss. If you can get one that is not DOA, you have a great monitor. BTW, all the 24", 27" and 30" IPS wide gamut displays are made by LG regardless of who puts their badge on them.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck with your U3011.
