NEC MultiSync LCD2490WUXi

We've been looking these models over ever since NEC announced them, and now that they're available, has anyone bought and tested one?

On paper, these seems to be very impressive for use as production monitors (we're doing 1920x1080p Cineformed material taken from a Sony V1).

We need a couple of LCD's for a new quad AE CS3 workstation and wondered if anyone's had a look at these NECs, or has any comments?

Here's a quick link for their site: http://www.necdisplay.com/Products/P...4-bd7f0b7e6ece

This will be something close to the Dell I was mentioning in the other thread, but maybe slower response time, so maybe more like the one from Eizo.

It should be fine with up to 30p materials with that response time.
Just look into its parameters to control the color and the brightness/contrast, so you won't be limited to do color grading.

Having a SD production monitor on the size to match the color works good.

Kaku, have you actually LOOKED at the spec's on these? You should...

"A 12-bit gamma lookup table (LUT), which allows MultiSync 90 Series
monitors to display 16.7 million colors out of a palette of 68.5 billion,
provides for more finely detailed, high-definition rendering of
color images and crisper display of even the most delicate shadings
and color differences. GammaCompô internal circuitry converts
8-bit data from the computer to 12-bit, producing smooth,
accurate color tones. Gamma can be set by using preset values
(including S-Curve and DICOM GSDF) or creating a custom setting
from 0.5 to 4.0 in increments of 0.1, providing an ideal setting for
video or other applications."

At least on paper, if they even come close to what they are showing as specs, they seem to be a very good cost/benefit choice indeed.

Sorry, maybe I was little skeptical.

I'll look into that.
