    Removing touchscreen from NEC 90 monitors

    I remember a bunch of people got those 2490s from eBay a little over a year ago, and they removed the touchscreens on them -- and am hoping someone can offer the best advice on how to go about it. I recently purchased a NEC 2190uxp from eBay, and like my past attempts (this is my 3rd try)...

    Buying monitor (NEC 2190) on eBay -- dealing with bad seller

    I recently bought a used NEC 2190uxp on eBay, to replace my old broken one (which too was bought from eBay some time ago). I guess I should have learned, but this one also has issues. The seller stated 'short usage' in the auction, and when questioned, he stated it had about 6 months of use, but...

    What was the official word for the discontinuation of A-TW?

    I wasn't around here back when the 2490 A-TW was discontinued, and am just wondering what was the official reason NEC gave for discontinuing use of the A-TW polarizer in any models? Was it simply a problem obtaining that part anymore? Or was it too expensive? I'm mostly curious as I happened...

    Screen Manager/Utility Software for Eizos

    Quick question for anyone out there who happens to own an Eizo and uses their screen manager software -- does the standard Flexscan ScreenManager utility allow for full control of monitor features, colors, adjustment, etc? I picked up a MX210 (basically the same as their S2100) from eBay, and...

    Tiny nicks on screen-- what to use to remove?

    I picked up a used Eizo 21"er on eBay to use as a secondary display, and after close examination I noticed two tiny little nicks... not quite scratches... sort of like 2 little marks, maybe a couple of pixels long. Is there anything I can use to try to rub them out with? I did try cleaning...

    Eizos - Usage time in menu -- accurate?

    I bought a used 19" Eizo S1921 from eBay this week, to use as a cheap spare/secondary monitor. It arrived today, and I just now checked hours used (in menu, under information) and it states 10 hrs. Is this possible? The screen is in nice condition, but the monitor was rather dusty, so perhaps...

    Looking for opinions on NEC 2470 & 2170

    I'm curious what owners of the above monitors think of them. How do they rank in comparison with a NEC 2490? There are two people local to me selling a NEC 2170 and 2470 and just wondering if they are worth getting. They are supposedly like new -- I had the sellers send me the hours on each...

    Image retention - nec 2490 -- is this normal?

    I received my replacement NEC 2490 in today from an eBay reseller. The first one had a bunch of dark spots and a vertical line down the screen. The new one looks pretty decent so far, although I am still testing things. But I have noticed some image retention going on. If I look at a...

    Determining backlight hours used - NEC 70 series

    I know how to figure out the backlight hours used on the 90 series, but is there as way to figure it out for the 70 series? There are two craigslist people near me selling NEC 70 monitors, one is a 2170 (for < $75), and another is selling a 2470 (in the $150ish range). They each say low...

    More NEC LCD woes...

    My venture into the LCD world hasn't gone so great so far. I initially purchased a used NEC 2190, it conked out... and then the replacement conked out... and although I guess I should have known better, I figured I'd get a first gen 2490 off of eBay. Everyone seems to love that model, great...

    Just bringing this up once more, in case anyone out there has any ideas. I had the following occur with my first NEC 2190Uxp ... first time I tried it, amber blinking light, no image. After several tries, it started to work fine. It worked okay for a day or two, then the amber light problem...

    Monitor woes - Difference between dead pixels or dust behind screen?

    My replacement NEC 2190 arrived today, and thankfully it at least starts up. But it seems I replaced one problem with another. I spotted at least 4 dead pixels, one somewhat annoyingly near the right/middle of the screen in clear view. The one near the middle is sort of clumpy and large. How...

    Battle of the 24" IPS monitors (non- heavily AG coated variety)

    Although I have no plans to rush out and get a 24" monitor right now, I was curious what folks here think of the following three IPS monitors. I guess I am just making a 'wish list' for the future, in case I ever see a good deal. Apple cinema 24" NEC 2490 Samsung 24" PLS I include just these...

    NEC PA series - Need Help - standby/sensor problem

    Okay, it seems I have a bit of a weird problem with the monitor I just bought. It's a NEC LCD 2190Uxp. It works great except for one annoying problem. It appears to go into standby mode, depending on light levels (or randomness). What I have seen so far: Twice when trying to turn it on I...

    Best (cheap) calibration tool for a NEC 2190Uxp (pva)?

    I got a relatively inexpensive used NEC LCD2190Uxp yesterday, and am wondering what calibration tools are compatible, and ideally cheap. Spyder 3? I believe the NEC models also use spectraview software for calibrating, but am not sure if that is free or a separate purchase. My LCD palette is...

    Opinions on Eizo S2000

    I have been considering picking up a used S2000, but was wondering if any users of said model had any opinions on it. Do you think it's worth getting an older model like this, if it's relatively inexpensive? I believe it's a VA model, so will assume (or hope) blacks or okay. It's 4:3, which...

    Possibly dumb question -- tvs for pc displays

    Something I've wondered about, and apologies in advance if it's a dumb question and has been covered in this forum somewhere before.... but what issues are there when using a tv lcd as a computer monitor? Overlooking size, of course, but say someone was using a 27-32" IPS TV. Would it work as...

    CRTs and font settings in Win 7

    I'm wondering what people here do about Windows 7 font settings if they have a CRT. For myself, Cleartype looks blurry, while Cleartype off tends to make some fonts on webpages thin and scraggly. Sort of like either way, Win 7 can't do nice fonts on a CRT. There are some sites that do look...

    I have several newbie-type panel questions that I hope some folks here can help me with. How does the current VA panels compare to IPS in regard to angles and black? Does anyone make a 16:10 VA panel anymore? And how does the Samsung S27A650 compare to IPS panels? Has anyone seen any stores...
