    NEC P242W reviews

    P242W-BK 24" LED Backlit IPS LCD Monitor is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice picture, but whines This monitor had a lovely display, and the colors looked excellent even without any calibration effort. However, as soon as it was plugged in I heard a high pitched whining noise. It was not so loud that it drove me out of the room, so if you are not sensitive to high noises it probably would not bother you. It did bother me, so I contacted NEC and tried a couple recommendations from them but it did not change anything. So I returned this monitor and am getting a different one. In summary: a nice monitor if a slight high pitched noise does not bother you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great If you need a monitor which is consistantly lit from corner to corner for color critical applications. This one works excellent. Based on my research this monitor uses the same LG 8 bit screen as the PA242W, but doesn't have the hardware/software enhancements to act as a wide gamut monitor. The anti glare finish is perfect. There is no hum as some have mentioned. I had to get a 24 X 36 high key print out almost immediately after the monitor arrived the with P242W I could see the suptle details which I could not see with my previous monitor (which was properly and regularly calibrated). The monitor did need to be calibrated with the SpectraView II Software. The I1 Profiler software will not work with the P and PA NEC monitors. After adjusting the brightnesson the file based on what I could see with the P242W, I submitted a file to print a 24X36. The print arrived the next day and was spot on for once.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational Monitor The NEC monitor is the best one that I have ever owned! I also bought the LCD-MDSVsensor3 so I could calibrate the monitor. It works like a charm. NEC'S technical people, Cody, Jennifer, Steve, and Kiera where very helpful! In fact you couldn' t ask for better technical help! As a hobby, I restore photos and this monitor is an absolute gem! I am recommending this product to all my friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Can See Clearly Now This is, without a doubt, the best monitor I have ever owned, and likely ever sat in front of. It replaces an old 24 Apple Cinema Display that I held on to up until just recently, and man am I sad about it! I should have been using this or the equiv NEC monitor years ago! The color, contrast and brightness on this display is so clear and brilliant compared to the ACD and other monitors I've used that it's no wonder to me why so many people complain about not being able to see or read their computer screens - the average screen is a murky mess and it will become painfully obvious to you after you power this monitor up for the first time. Anyone who does photo or video work will love this monitor. Heck, I'm a software dev and I can't wait to power it up just to look at my code and text files! I do notice a slight high pitched noise sometimes, but it's not jarring, but I wouldn't let it hold me back from purchasing a second.
