NEC's New MultiSync P241W

NEC MultiSync P241WNEC just updated its MultiSync P Series of monitors with a brand new 24" display known as the MultiSync P24W and it comes with an e-IPS panel that, according to NEC, is perfect for web graphics as well as photography enthusiasts. In addition to the MultiSync P241W there is also the new P241W-BK-SV which is a SpectraView II version of the P24W.

e-IPS is one of the newer types of In-Plane Switching panels and is also considered a sub-category of H-IPS. e-IPS panels use a simplified structure as well as a wider aperture for light transmission. This allows them to get by with a lower quality and less expensive backlight while at the same time still producing excellent picture quality. In addition to that, e-IPS panels also boast wide viewing angles.

According to Product Manager for Professional and Medical Displays at NEC Art Marshall, "The new MultiSync P Series combines reliable, accurate screen performance with all the cutting-edge technology included in the MultiSync PA Series at a budget-friendly price. One of the more unique features of the P241W is the ability to utilize two computers simultaneously through DisplaySync Pro and the integrated USB hub, which functions as a KVM device. This capability is invaluable to graphics professionals, and we're excited to introduce this feature into the MultiSync P Series."

As far as specs go, this monitor is a 16:10 device that comes with a 1920x1200 native resolution, 96.7% sRGB color gamut, 1,000:1 typical contrast ratio, 8ms response time, 360 cd/m2 typical brightness, XtraView+ viewing angle, internal 14-bit 3D programmable LUTs, built-in USB hub, Picture-in-Picture, ICC Profile Emulation, Color Vision Emulation, four-way ergonomic stand and DisplayPort/VGA/2xDVD-D inputs.

There are a lot of professional level features with this monitor which are good for professionals. However, that is also the reason that this monitor is a little pricier than most. The MultiSync P241W from EC will begin shipping this month for a retail price of $749. The MultiSync P241W-BK-SV with SpectraView color will also ship this month for $1,249.
