Multiprofiler Application
A variety of Monitor controls: MultiProler allows you to control the brightness, black level and color gamut directly from the software in addition to many other settings. Changes to settings are made instantly to the monitor.

Picture Mode preset editing: Multiple picture modes can be quickly congured using MultiProler. Choose from the simplicity of built-in sRGB, Adobe RGB, DCI, DICOM, REC-BT709 and High Brightness modes, or load an ICC prole for color matching an existing printer or display. In addition, MultiProler helps you create a completely custom Picture Mode conguration, including controlling the gamma characteristics, color gamut and white point.

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) conguration: The PIP modes can be completely congured directly in MultiProler, including the PIP mode, the video inputs and the Picture Mode for the second video input. This greatly simplies the management of multiple computer congurations.

DisplaySync Pro and USB hub conguration: The integrated USB hub in MultiSync PA Series monitors also can be managed through MultiProler to function as a keyboard/ video/mouse (KVM) switch. This feature maps the USB upstream ports to the various display inputs, which is useful for managing controlling computers attached to the display.

Quick print preview: Create a print preview Picture Mode for your printer by loading its ICC prole in MultiProler. The Picture-in-Picture or Picture-by-Picture function can then be used to view the print preview in real-time.

Automatic generation of ICC proles: MultiProler automatically generates and updates ICC proles as the color modes are selected or adjusted, reducing the need for a proling package to prole the monitor.

    NEC PA272W reviews

    PA272W-BK 27" 16:9 IPS Monitor (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 98.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic monitor for the price I have had a NEC PA271W for years and it works flawlessly. I calibrate it with an Eye1 Pro using Spectraview. and my color workflow is nearly perfect. I needed 2 more of these monitors for another image processing machine I am building, and got two of these. I have already calibrated them. I paid around $1200 for the PA271, so these seem like a bargain. They hold color calibration beautifully, and have the gamut near that of AdobeRGB. If you do any color-critical work, these are the monitors to get. There are perhaps better monitors for color-critical work, but they are MUCH more expensive. I would definitely get these again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it - Mostly This review would have been different a few years ago. So far I love the monitor. The screen is awesome, and unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, has made it so I can see flaws in my images I never saw on my calibrated Retina MacBook Pro. The finish on the screen is awesome. It's matte, and doesn't reflect the Apple screens, yet doesn't feel matte. Color reproduction is also great right out of the box. The one reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5 is the USB 2. Really surprised they never upgraded the USB Hub in this thing. Still, for the XRite, and Logitech C920 camera, USB 2 is all I need. Would have been nice to have the option of using a USB 3 device though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PA272W-BK 27 This monitor replaced my aging NEC 2690. Without a doubt the PA272 is a great step forward. It is nice to see colors pop up on screen immediately once it is on. I'm sure my old monitor was never this responsive which is perhaps because it was not backlit with LEDs. For what it is worth, I used my Datacolor software and Spyder4ELITE to calibrate the monitor. I also decided to purchase the NEC SpctraView ll software by itself since I have the Spyder. From what I can tell the software is very easy to use but not nearly as informative as the Datacolor process but that's another matter that really isn't part of this monitor review.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was amazing until yesterday I got this monitor about a month ago and also bought the spectraview software to calibrate it. My first IPS monitor - without going into details -everything was just amazing ...until yesterday. The screen started flicking really bad (violently like how an earthquake progresses) and then the display will go blank. I would have to unplug the cable, power down the monitor and then power it up again and then connect it to my MBP. Things would be okay for few hours and then again same issue. Nothing is 100% perfect so I am not giving 1 or 2 star however taking one star off since I have to go through the pain of exchange and some added cost for expedited shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor for photo editing My second monitor for photo editing and I could not be happier. Upgraded to this from a smaller EIZO monitor that I had for some time now. Was looking to get into a 27 and funds were limiting me from getting into the 27 EIZO CG that I wanted. Took a look at the NEC at the recommendation of several friends and I have to say for general performance it is definitely on par with the EIZO I had in the past. I saved around $$! The warranty coverage is a little shorter than the EIZO but I have never had a need to service any monitor so this is not entirely important to my buying decision. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Profession Monitor for the Price I love my NEC monitor. The color is perfect, The SpectraView ll NEC puck system is fast and gives the monitor a beautiful color. You have to decided what is the best profile for you. I played with a few and came up with my perfect one White Point D65, Gamma 2.0, Intensity 135, Color Gamut sRGB. That gives me the best color for Lightroom/Photoshop and working on the internet. What I see on my monitor prints perfectly to my Epson 3880 printer when I use the Epson Ultra Premium Photo Luster Paper. I highly recommend this monitor. When not using I always put the monitor to sleep instead of using the screen saver. NEC recommends that too. It saves the monitor life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding color and sharpness. I own a dozen or more NEC monitors, including many IPS displays (2090UXi). I bought this one for my daughter who is an aspiring photographer. The colors are incredibly vibrant and the image very sharp. The included dual-link DVI, and Displayport cables were appreciated, but I could have done without 3 different types of European power cables that will go in the trash. The monitor came pre-calibrated and I did not find anything to change after analysis with X-Rite ColorMunki. All in all, a very nice monitor at an outstanding price (plus no tax and free shipping). Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better 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.
