This NEC looks rather plain, but it’s ca­pa­ble of pic­ture-in-pic­ture (two in­puts si­mul­ta­ne­ously) plus a bright­ness of 340 can­de­las per square me­tre. In use, there was a very warm feel to the screen plus im­mense clar­ity. Images are re­ally vi­brant, while there are swivel and tilt modes in ad­di­tion to HDMI, Dis­playPort, DVI and VGA. The menu is ba­sic, but there are good but­ton con­trols.

The main prob­lem is that it’s too costly for a Full HD 24-inch dis­play. Also, while it’s great to be able to show two in­puts side-by-side they look silly on a mon­i­tor this size.

Pros: A highly ca­pa­ble mon­i­tor; pro-level colour space con­trol.

Cons: Too ex­pen­sive for a 24-inch dis­play nowa­days.

We say: Good, but for this money it should be big­ger.

This NEC has five Pic­ture Mode pro­files, so you can set the colours up for five dif­fer­ent colour spa­ces
