    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...

    Are LCD'S soppose to be so grainy ?

    Try the NEC 20W(M)GX2 :) with the OptiClear panel coating. Instead of the grainy problem, this monitor have the opposite one. It's so crystal clear that you may fool yourself and jump in :p Seriously, this monitor is fantasic resemblance of the all-time-good CRT look. It doesn't suffer from...

    24" IPS?

    Something particularly interesting: LM260WU1 LG.Philips panel: 92% of the colour space and 500 luminance level may suggest the new generation of CCFL, massive 1000:1/3000:1(W/DCR) contrast rate new DFC revision or something similar and impressive 5ms G2G is also interesting for the screen...

    24" IPS?

    Thank you very much ;) That was my impression too. In essence, we will not see the up-sized 20WGX2 versions. We will have LCD2690WUXi/LCD2490WUXi ... and they will probably extend the LCD2090UXi legacy with the wide screen form, better overdrive and new CCFL. PS We believe you, no probs...

    Did you considered the NEC 20WGX2 ? :)

    24" IPS?

    Yes, this is the present scenario. Also, it seems that NEC will have few surprises for us, as they will introduce the 24" and 26" panel versions, according to travbomb. Althought, few months ago, I recieved info from NEC that they are not planning the 24" (or larger) GX2 version and that they...

    Viewing experience with glossy panels?

    Such epidemic glossy factor reservation in the reviews around is disturbing, to say at least. They are either ignorant or simply involving their personal preference. It's NOT problem for the majority of people out there and to kill the monitor review score just because of the coating ... is just...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    It's just slight overdrive overshoot (as I explained above). Apart from movie playback (slight pixel flashing/noise), it's not noticeable in other working modes ... so no reason to worry about. Generally, any LCD (even LCD TV) with overdrive is suffering from video noise (twinkling) to some...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    So ... what exactly is wrong with the current firmware and what improvements do we need or may expect ?! Is this only for 20WMGX2 or European 20WGX2 version is also included? I've never heard that you can flash any firmware for any LCD manually, so if your statements are honest, this must be the...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    I'm not quite following you. You are working with the NEC (US ?) on the "public" firmware for the new monitor revision, but on the other hand you are releasing your "own" firmware version (and NEC will give you the firmware ?!) so that you may release it to the public ... so I guess that we just...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    Great! ... and such effort! to import the 20WMGX2 from the US :) Yes, it's a great screen. When you combine the facts that you have the panel based on the latest AS-IPS technology, excellent viewing angles, exceptional response time, great colour reproduction and picture balance/contrast...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    Yes, you have to step back a bit when using this screen. However, because of the OptiClear coating and panel quality this monitor is very smooth and probably this is the smoothest transition from the CRT currently available. I think that you will be even more surprised with the standard AR (anti...

    Absof*****glutely :) My first ever 15" flatscreen CRT was NEC MultiSync (can't remember the model ... it was many moons ago (probably early 1990) and it was display reference at that time. Somehow I was always drawn to the NEC, purely because of the extraordinary display quality. Even my...

    It seems that you are also not the huge fan of the AR coating panels "grainy" look. Same situation here. If you open the page 9 of this thread, you may find some interesting comments about the NEC OptiClear.

    well well well 23" AS-IPS LCD's start to appear.

    ... or if someone is considering to have the next HDTV-LCD based on the same technology ... I'm seriously tempted to have my next LCD TV, based on the enhanced S-IPS technology, to complement the NEC LCD monitor ;) Essentially, LG.Philips is using the same NEC AS-IPS panel technology for the...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    Not sure. Maybe it's the camera effect or simply how the monitor was configured. Anyhow, it's not deformity in usual sense. Monitor does have colours bit on the warm side, but it's easily tuneable to anyone taste. I guess that you are asking this because of the famous "twinkling effects" in...

    Exactly, that's why my previous post ;) Sometimes there is no reason that we are so fussy if it's not problem for day 2 day work and it's not distractive. Believe it or not, couple of days ago I was thinking also about those 2 lines of the CRT aperture grills (I had Diamondtron M2 tube before)...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    Is that stuck pixel definitely ? Reason why I'm asking is that usually dead pixels are not so much distracting (like maybe stuck/lazy - sub pixels) as they are generally dark, dimmed and usually slightly greyish ... rarely white. Valve of the white dead pixel is simply fixed in "up" position...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    NEC is calling this "resolution expansion mode" and there are 3 modes: - Full is stretching the image completely, so that whole screen is covered. - Aspect is trying to simulate the monitor wide-screen aspect rate 16:10 on the selected resolution. It's stretched little bit, but there are...

    OptiClear coating is a triumph. I'm really starting now to appreciate the "grainy screen free" look of the NEC panel. Recently, I was visiting my old friend and he has Dell 2005FPW. When I looked at his monitor, I could easily see the grainy texture of the LCD screen ... and that was something I...

    New NEC 20WMGX2!!! (Pics inside 56K)

    If you are referring to Game/Movie/Photo modes, when you activate them DFC (digital fine contrast) engine is kicking in and because the monitor software is dynamically controlling the contrast, gamma and backlight according to the screen content, you may notice the slight colour banding and...

    23-24" AS-IPS coming soon?

    As far as I know, NEC is not going to launch a 23" widescreen monitor within the next (at least) 6 months. Essentially, they will not release in near future nothing larger than 20" and based on the new LG.Philips panel.However, as this is one expensive piece of technology you may probably expect...
