    NEC P242W Reviews

    P242W-BK-SV 24" LED Backlit IPS Monitor with SpectraView II is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! I was on the fence about buying this monitor since it is a recent model and there was no feedback here before I jump to buy it. It was a bit complicated as to raisen the monitor for the first time since one has to push all the way down until it touches the base, then you can move the lock/unlock switch. I found the CD with software for the monitor a bit complicated as there is no exe. file to install all software at once but one has to install one by one... I hated the bright blue LED that shows when the monitor is on, so If you go to menu and look for advance settings you can change it, I did to the other possible colour which, in this case, is not so bright and is green. I bought my monitor in a bundle with the SpectraView II colorimeter, this might seem obvious but when you read the instruction manual it says that your video card is no longer in charge of telling the monitor how to behaive regarding colours and so I was plugging the colorimeter to the USB port behind the monitor as it made sense to me. Well, it does not have to be plugged there but on one of the computers USB ports...These simple things would make for a better experience and could speed up the process of installing the monitor and software. Would rate this one 5 stars but after all the time I spent figuring out how to use the SpectraSensor I guess NEC don't deserve the 5 star rating. Now, onece the monitor is properly installed and calibrated the clarity, details and colours of my subjects (animals)are just amazing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor. Using this for photo work. Very happy. It came with calibration software and tools. After spending $$$ on camera bodies and lens I was tired of working with my images on mediocre monitors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Photo Monitor I have been using this monitor for photo editing for a couple of weeks now and amy very happy with it. Not truly a wide gambut monitor mine does cover over 100% of sRGB but not all of AdobeRGB acording to the spectraview software. The only thing I dont like about the monitor is that it has a high pitched whine that is kind of annoying but not so bad that I cant live with it. Overall I am very pleased with the monitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor & Software=Happy Customer! So far everything works and looks great! Hope to use this monitor for color-correct digital artwork and illustration for print and web. Monitor is very well built and sturdy, with lots of extra features and controls. Software and Colorimeter are fully automated and easy to use. My only regret is that I didn't go for the wide gamut PA version. Maybe I'll get that as a second monitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this monitor... Used for image editing. Setup as a 2nd monitor from my new laptop. Works great, allows use with another system and shared keyboard/mouse. Calibration was painless.
