          Comments about NEC PA242W-BK-SV 24" Professional Wide Gamut LED Desktop Monitor:

          We use this to prepare photos for a book printer, as well as to make my own fine art large format prints. We needed help to calibrate this properly so that what we see on the monitor matched what the printing company produced. This is a complex issue. NEC tech support was super great. Explained it to us (twice) in separate phone calls and had patience with us and he really was very very knowledgeable. As well the monitor has a beautiful picture. I got the spectraview calibrator with it but they explained, before our purchase that we could use another one if we already had it. I bought the spectra view just because it seemed that it would be a bit easier to integrate.

              Great monitor, calibration from factory was spot on, easy to set up on my mac. Odd thing was - this is an assembled unit with the calibration device added on. The manual was in russian/Ukraine but there is an english manual on the disc, so no problems

              Comments about NEC PA242W-BK-SV 24" Professional Wide Gamut LED Desktop Monitor:

              I just returned from a photography trip to Hawaii and purchased the NEC PA242. It makes my work so much easier. Even before calibrating, I could see the huge difference it makes as my photos pop up on it. It was very easy to plug into my macbook pro so now I have a working-size screen.

              , the calibration process is very simple. very nice and easy to use. It came with several cables or electrical connectors except the HDMI connector I neded to connect to my Mag Pro with. A Russian manuals was included I had to search the internet for an English one to read about the monitor.

                I am a semi-pro photographer. My old monitor was, well old. I did quite a bit of research on color accurate monitors, calibrations, etc. This monitor is pricey but I managed to fit it in the budget. The quality is stunning. I am still working on learning all it has to offer. There is a little bit of a learning curve to go through. I have called NEC for help a couple of times. I have had some of the best customer service ever. I speak to a live person, no credit card asked for, very willing to answer my questions. B&H also has been excellent in the customer service area as well. Very fast responses to my questions and very willing and helpful to help resolve anything that came up.Color calibration is not an easy topic to tackle. How it relates to Photoshop and what to expect of this display and how to view your images once they are edited in Photoshop need to be understood or you will not be happy. That being said, my images have never looked better. I am still working out editing and printing (waiting for samples from the lab). But, am sure I will be happy..

                      This is probably more monitor than I need because I am not a pro. However, you don't have to be professional to recognize the clarity and stunning color accuracy in this monitor. It has tremendous adjustment flexibility and the Spectraview II system included with this model makes calibration easy.

                          Excellent Packaging. Provided all conceivable electrical plugs and cables. Easy setup and adjustments. Spectraview II color calibration works well. This is the secret sauce you need to match color from screen to prints: Color Critical, Wide Gamut Monitor + Display Port Cable + PNY K600 or similar video card + Turn Aero off in Windows. You can spend more, but you won't get better results.
