          Great office monitor! Liked it so much I ordered a second one to use in a dual display configuration.

          It also works very well for photo review and editing.

          No regrets at all.

            I dreaded setting this monitor up by myself (hey, I'm a woman!), but it was a piece of cake. Can't believe how beautiful the screen resolution is. It will be perfect for webcasts and watching movies. The price plus free shipping cannot be beat by my local stores. This was my first time ordering something this big online. The buttons are a little difficult but i was able to download a user manual online for help. Screen pivots and tilts....no more aching back or neck!

              The screen is clear, bright and color is excellent. The only negative is finding directions for buttons - had to go to the NEC website and sort through all kinds product sales info, etc. But when we found it and printed it, the rest was easy.

                I bought a NEC Multisync EA231WMi monitor two years ago to replace a 22" Sharp monitor, which vibrates and makes annoying humming noise. The NEC monitor is heavier and well built with good picture and colors for general everyday use. (I am not into video games, and never tried it on with video games.) So, I bought this NEC when I need to expand my work station to a dual monitor set up. The new one actually is cheaper, but with better OSC functions. The video image and colors are sharper than my old Nec.

                    I purchased this monitor as a supplement to my primary monitor for graphic design work. I use the main monitor (Wacom Cintiq), and use the NEC monitor to show reference materials and file browsing.

                    It is not the most color accurate monitor, but it is reliable and have excellent value for it's price. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reliable monitor for office use.
