    Looking for a 24" S-IPS Display

    For the NEC LCD2690WUXi I verified this personally and I can confirm that according to the OSD it's supporting the full pixel scaling, scaling but keeping the aspect ratio and no scaling at all (1:1 pixel mapping & unaltered picture). It seems that integrated scaler chipset is doing the job...

    Official BenQ FP241W Thread !!! Info, Pictures, Reviews

    It does seems that it's very nice gaming panel, according to your reports, and more more importantly you had a play with the fast paced games also. We may have one interesting point here ... do we (you) really need BFI, if the gaming (including FPS) is already enjoyable with this model ? We...

    Official BenQ FP241W Thread !!! Info, Pictures, Reviews

    Look, you have to be aware that BenQ FP241W probably belongs to the "hybrid" LCD TV/monitor category. It's advertised as HD/video monitor and it does have HDMI port (if anyone fancy this, although I think that HDMI switch is probably better option). In essence, we are talking also about the...

    Official BenQ FP241W Thread !!! Info, Pictures, Reviews

    You didn't got the point I'm afraid. It's not just about the comparison of what does "exist" or not. It's about differences in R&D, strategies and concepts between the companies itself.

    Official BenQ FP241W Thread !!! Info, Pictures, Reviews

    BenQ UK confirmed the absence of 1:1 pixel scaling. Unfortunately, TrustedReviews didn't test this properly, so for now we are unable to confirm how HDMI and pixel scaling itself is operating until we have few more reliable reports. For such tests, you need to have proper HD source and equipment...

    Official BenQ FP241W Thread !!! Info, Pictures, Reviews

    DieHardcc clasified absence of the HDMI port as monitor minus. I have to disagree on that one. I noticed that many people are keen to have it but on the other hand some people would like to know if additional HDMI cost is really worth it. If "one day" you will have HD-DVD or Blue-ray PC...

    Official BenQ FP241W Thread !!! Info, Pictures, Reviews

    It's not about the complexity. It's about keeping the price down & attractive. According to the info supplied from BenQ, this monitor doesn't support the proper pixel scaling and you may have the problematic situation with the HDMI port as even 1080p content will be stretched because of the...

    NEC LCD2690

    As far as I can tell from the brief look, NEC 2690 does look like very nice! and as I already mentioned before, it does keep the 90 series legacy - evolved into the 26" bezel and LG-Philips LM260WU1 panel. Specifically, that legacy includes...

    NEC 20WGX2 complete shit for photos?

    As I already mentioned in the first page of this thread, this type of test is simply not reliable indication of the panel capabilities. People can post their numbers (and I've seen strangely low ones) - that's OK, but there is one fundamental problem: we don't have any information about their...

    Looking for a 24" S-IPS Display

    That's great travbomb. Keep up the good work :) LCD2690 does sound very interesting. Maybe you could ask NEC to send us one to TFTcentral for the early review. It could complement nicely the already present 20WGX2 review ;)

    NEC 20WGX2 complete shit for photos?

    ^^^ Indeed. I wonder, where on earth are people picking up such information. It's completely misleading, not based on any solid facts and most importantly it's confusing other thread readers. Shocking. :confused: Sorry for being brutal here, but people should really research more before...

    NEC 20WGX2 complete shit for photos?

    Simply not true. Even if you don't use the Advanced DV (which is *not* just dynamic backlight adjustment) you will still have great picture and great blacks. Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to defend here my egoistic opinions about this screen. However, I'm more keen to see the properly...

    NEC 20WGX2 complete shit for photos?

    This test is not designed to measure the black point luminance - so in essence it's not relevant when you want to describe how much black is black. It's designed to present minimum shadow level monitor is capable to display. In other words, where is the minimum shadow patch when you can clearly...

    NEC 20WGX2 complete shit for photos?

    That's pretty much strange. On non-calibrated 20WGX2 at 50% brightness, 50% contrast, Advanced DV off, DV mode Standard, Native colour space ... I can see the first dark shade at approx 6,6,6 - 7,7,7. I guess that after proper hardware calibration, you will be in the range of 4,4,4 - 5,5,5 ...

    Are LCD'S soppose to be so grainy ?

    It's not the same thing. Here, we are talking about the panel coating type and the quality (grade) of the panel surface and DPI (pixel pitch) or the pixel size ... as the contributed factors for the overall "grainy" look of the LCD. For some people, it's also sandy or hazy (depending on the...
