    A Little Background
    After suspecting the NEC LCD2690WUXi was on its way out (failed achieving target intensity during calibration) I phoned NEC tech support. I was pleasantly surprised that even though the unit was well past its warranty period, I got to talk with Aaron, a Level 2 Tech. Over the course of about 30 minutes we proceeded to run the monitor and the color sensor through a series of performance tests. The conclusion was certain; the back light was failing. The LCD2690WUXi has been a great monitor for the past 6 years and over 12,000 hours of actual use, but it was time to retire it.

    The PA272 was one of the options Aaron and talked about, but then so was the discounted PA271 and even replacing the back light in the LCD2690WUXi. One of the compelling reasons for getting the PA272 was Aaron's endorsement of it – not in any way as a sales guy, but as a nerdy tech guy, my kind of guy! In more tangible terms; however, the PA272's back light is likely not going to fail nearly as soon since it's LED (start looking up the word 'metamerism').

    Setting it up
    I love B&H, but I was less than happy with them when the User's Manual was in Cyrillic! And of course it was Friday noon when the UPS guy drove off. Minor issue, almost not worth mentioning – at least the pdf from NEC's website was in English.

    The added USB ports are always welcomed, something the LCD2690WUX lacked, and the next noted refinement was the stand. The height adjustment lock in the lowest position makes it much safer moving this beast around and the cable caddy thing on the LCD2690WUX which would easily fall off has been replaced with a vertically sliding shield that's not removable. The other improvement made on the stand of the PA272 is the way the swivel left-right works. All kind of minor points but all pluses.

    No DVD disk comes with the monitor, but one isn't needed for the PA272, so don't sweat that. Figuring out what the mini DisplayPort cable is really going to accomplish, I still have no idea, but I connected it anyway along with the DVI-D, USB and power.

    Powering UP
    Windows found the new hardware and installed the generic USB hub drivers first and then fetched and installed PA272 drivers. After that successful run, the NVIDIA drivers and SpectraView II software were installed without issue.

    Calibration
    The same calibration sensor that came with the LCD2690WUX (NEC iOne Display v2) and the update SpectraView II (v1.1.16.02) proceeded to do their thing smoothly... until it was finished. Whoa! That color is way way off! Later, my wife called it: 'sea foam' green when I asked here what color the screen looked like to her. For about 4 hours I combed through articles and reports searching how to fix this ugly green thing.

    Many thanks and kudos to Marcin Kałuża (aka Czornyj) for his quick reply to my call for help on the Luminous Landscape forum and the easy solution: MultiProfiler, NEC's free software and a check in the box for Metamerism correction – hope that you looked up that word by now ;)

    Complaints
    They are minor, but like the pluses, worth mentioning. The happy fix of being rid of the green cast through the MultiProfiler is short-lived and must be redone after each calibration. Why this little check box isn't 1) in SpectraView II to begin with and 2) on by default upon completion of the calibration process is something that escapes reason... maybe NEC will take note?

    Bottom line
    This is a fantastic display device and is definitely the hands down successor to the LCD2690WUX.

    PA272W Doesn't Achieve Full Resolution

    Just purchased and setup PA272 with brand new Mac PowerBook 2.8GHz laptop. Can not get the monitor to achieve its native resolution of 2560 x 1440 at all. Only sees (or gets) 1920 x 1200. Have spent hours with NEC and Apple tech support. No solution after reboots, PRAM resets, monitor factory reset, etc. Latest attempt is to get a Thunderport to Dual Link adapter and try that. Doesn't get here tip next week.So very disappointed so far. Hope that this can get resolved as am looking forward to the wide gamut color space and color calibration capabilities that the NEC boasts of and have seen reviews on. This appears to be a problem with Mavericks across multiple 27" monitors and as Mavericks is now up to x.x.4 revision, it is still not fixed according to many other users on Apple Forums. Hoping to get display port/mini display port working as I have 2 computers to drive them and make use of the built in KVM switch of the PA272. Hopefully can get this worked out and improve the rating.

    I use the PA272W for regular computing needs for my profession, and the monitor is very "non-fatiguing" for that. Where it really struts its swag is in photo editing and processing. Remarkable. Highly recommended.

      Very happy with the clarity and operation.

      Just be aware these types of screens throw off a good bit of heat as compared to smaller, lower end monitors. This monitor throws off less heat than my 8 year old Dell screen of similar size.

        I tested the NEC PA272w monitor against the Apple Thunderbolt display (which was very nice), and to my eyes and usage dollar-for-dollar (especially with the NEC recent rebate, the NEC is very competitively priced), the NEC is just amazing in every conceivable way. I use the NEC for general use (writing, spreadsheets, etc.) but especially for photoediting with my MacBook Pro retina. The NEC's images are very clean, accurate, and highly detailed, but not clinical and dry, and all aspects of its performance are easily accessed and modified to my preferences. And, of course, B&H shipping and sales were awesome as always.

          Went on a crazy search on finding a great monitor for photography and videography at B&H, i had the Apple thunderbolt 27" got rid of it for the LG 34UM95P, and don't get me wrong they're very good monitors but way too much backlight bleed, i've tried 3 of them... And Ended up introduced by an expert at B&H by the name of Victor, this guy was a very major help upon me picking up the NEC monitor, since then my edits are right on point, what you see is what you get when export out to the web or other devices, very accurate monitor, and guess what is not even calibrated yet...

                  I needed a larger display to post-process my digital images in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop in Windows 7. Previously I had successfully used the 17" display of my Samsung laptop.
                  Installation was simply connecting the mini display cable and starting the laptop - totally plug-and-play. Resolution is 2560x1440 and Photoshop takes advantage of the 30-bit display capabilities.
                  After calibratine the display with the X-rite i1 Display Pro and setting Photoshop for 30-bit operation, post-processing digital images has not been easier. Colors are amazing and accurate. The large display makes it easy to make adjustments to the images.
                  I would recommend this display to anyone doing photographic retouching.

                    Initial monitor had a dead pixel. B&H customer service immediately gave me an RMA so I could exchange for another monitor.

                          Rated 5 stars. Why not? Use for photo editing and just wanted the finest quality screen out there. Awesome viewing HD images, video. Purchased over the holiday so got a great deal.
                          3 day shipping included. So impressed I purchased a 2nd PA272W-BK for a 2nd home office PC. Upgraded both PC video cards to NVIDA GeForce GTX 750 Ti to accomodate the NEC moniter specs. When upgrading to 2560 x 1440 worth the xtra $s to include 6ms or higher response time and a must, 1.07 billion collors. Perfect antiglare screen.

                            Comments about NEC PA272W-BK 27" LED Backlit Wide Gamut LCD Desktop Display (Black):

                            This monitor replaces an aging hp LP2475w monitor, which was excellent despite a small glitch with Mac OS X.

                            The PA272W shines far above the hp. In addition to being a bit larger (not a big deal for me), the gamut is larger, panel brightness is noticeably more uniform (perfect to my eyes), and images look far more lifelike than with any other monitor I've looked at.

                            Monitor ergonomics are also excellent. After reading reviews, I was a bit concerned about the base, but it's actually great. So is the freedom to position the monitor. All I might improve is moving the USB and other bottom-mounted ports so they were easily accessible from behind. But this has been a problem with every monitor I've looked at for years.

                              I don't have much more to say than has already been posted by other 4 and 5 star reviewers. The monitor is excellent for photo and video editing, etc. Out of the box calibration for mine was superb. After calibration with the i1 Display Pro, there was negligible adjustment needed.

                              Colors are superb and pictures/text are sharp. I've watched a few video is fantastic. I could go on about the quality of the screen. I'll just say that I am 100% happy and have very little regret about the high cost. There's always buyers remorse on expensive purchases, but that faded quickly after I started using the NEC. I purchased when it was at very nice discounted price :)

                              The monitor does not get hot with plenty of ventilation. The menu system is great and the adjustments that can be performed are numerous. The stand is also excellent weighing almost 9 pounds, making it easy to adjust the monitor orientation, but I ended up hanging the monitor on an adjustable wall mount because I already had a very nice mount that makes adjustments as easy as power steering in a vehicle.

                              I highly recommend this monitor. It is well built with quality housing and components.

                              As for the review posted by 'Photoguy 1000' who taped the power LED so it wouldn't be so bright. Had Photoguy read the downloadable manual, he/she would have found that the LED brightness and color can be adjusted or even turned off. So yeah...for some, the power LED is a little bright out of the box, but can be adjusted to your liking.

                              Comments about NEC PA272W-BK 27" LED Backlit Wide Gamut LCD Desktop Display (Black):

                              I am a serious photo enthusiast who spends a lot of time almost daily reviewing and post processing raw Nikon images. Accurate color and uniform illumination is important, as well as having a large, high resolution "desktop" workspace. The NEC PA272W meets and exceeds my requirements. This monitor replaces an Asus 24 inch monitor that was difficult to calibrate; its colors seemed to drift very quickly after calibration. The NEC set up was easy and very straight forward. I appreciated the supplied cables necessary to enable me to view images at full 2560x1440 pixel resolution from my MacBook Pro laptop. The supplied mini-display port to display port cable plugs directly into the MacBook Pro's mini-display port, thus eliminating the need for any third party adapters. The monitor is well packed by the manufacturer for shipping. The monitor can be adjusted for tilt and height so it's comfortable to view. Having used external monitors for some time, the set up was intuitive. That said, it's interesting to note that there is no supplied English owners manual, only a quick set up guide. An owners manual was supplied, but its was written for about a half-dozen foreign languages, but not English. Very strange for a device that's marketing in the US. The English version of the manual can be downloaded as a PDF from NEC's website. Also, I think the stand is just a little too flimsy for the size of this monitor. It's not bad, nor is this problematic. But it could be just a bit stronger. Thus my rating of 4 stars instead of 5. I've never spent this much money for a monitor before. So, this purchase was somewhat daunting. However, I am very satisfied with this purchase. It's a high quality device that is a pleasure to use. Highly recommend this monitor.

                                I have been wanting to get a large screen display for my PhotoShop work for ages. I seriously considered the Apple Thunderbolt display, but in the end the NEC multisync won out! I love the color gamut and how well calibrated it is. I used my I2 colorimeter to create a new profile and find that it didn't make much of a difference from the original factory settings. Cool.

                                Now I have a great color monitor and lots of real estate for multiple windows.

                                YES!!

                                Used primarily for editing photographs and preparing them for web and printing. I calibrated the monitor after receipt. Calibration out of the box was very close to accurate. It is so much better than my ancient (>5 yrs old) 24" monitor that instead setting up dual monitors I relagated the old one to backup status. The screen has excellent anti-glare surface. 27" screen has a lot of real estate which makes it useful for viewing multiple windows. 16:9 aspect ratio may surprise the unwary. Monitor's color gamut matches those of more expensive displays. Russion instruction manual was cute; luckily the english version is available as a download. Comes with power cords for just about every continent on the planet. The only con is that the "Power On" LED is too bright. Fixed this with a small piece of black tape. Overall: Excellent quality wide gamut display for a good price.

                                      272 is a delight. Images in 272 and panes on 271.
                                      Very happy.

                                        I have had every major monitor in the market and this is by far the best looking and professional monitor.
                                        The colors and options are to write home so many features and options this is fantastic monitor.

                                            The first PA272W-BK I ordered arrived nicely enough, but it had a persistent blue line running vertically on the screen. Very disappointing for such an expensive monitor. However, B&H stood behind the sale and exchanged it quickly and with zero hassle -- bravo to B&H. The second monitor is perfect so far. Beautiful resolution and easy to connect to my Macbook Pro. It may actually be overkill for my uses, but it's a sweet monitor, for sure.Like other reviewers have commented, both monitors I received arrived with a user manual written in Russian or a similar language -- no English. What's the deal with that?
