I just got this NEC Multisync PA271W made in 2013. Spent $200. They seem to go for more on Ebay. It's a CCFL model that has been superceded by PA272W, the LED-backlit version. Mine works OK. The colors are right on, fully saturated. I wanted a cheap 27" monitor in QHD resolution. My original idea was to get a Dell U2713HM, I've had that for a number of years and liked it before getting rid of it but before I ran it in HDMI only and this time I had to use a DisplayPort. Amazon reviews indicated there are issues with the DisplayPort in U2713HM and the newer models, U2715H had various issues with going to sleep and not waking up and such, had to be powercycled, etc. They were not encouraging. NEC has zero issues but does require more power. Something like 100W versus 50W which doesn't amount to all that much annually. I wasn't sure if my laptop could drive a 4K monitor, plus they are more expensive and with massive sales of 4K, nobody wants the 2.5K resolution which works pretty good with 27" sizes IMO and cheaper. I love 2.5K (2560x1440) despite the fact it appeared about 5+ years ago and its popularity seems to be declining as 4K becomes more popular, but 4K looks awful on smaller screens. I know I can adjust the size in Windows, etc. but then why get a 4K if you end up with less than 4K. I think 2.5K looks really good on 24-27" monitors is a good intermediate resolution between HD and 4K.
