NEC MultiSync LCD2180WG Video
The NEC MultiSync LCD1970VX is a reasonably priced, well-designed LCD that will fit most users' needs for flexibility and image quality.
The NEC MultiSync P221W has some of the most accurate colors we've seen, but it is light on features.
The NEC MultiSync PA271W is an incredibly performing monitor that may be too expensive for what it offers.
The NEC MultiSync E231W offers a lot of features for a relatively low price.
Though CRTs are moving toward obsolescence, the NEC MultiSync FE992 offers good performance and a lot of screen real estate for a low price.
The NEC MultiSync EA221WM has a host of features and good overall performance for a fairly high price.
Most 17-inch monitors can't match the NEC MultiSync LCD1770VX's clean appearance and ease of use; however, so-so image quality limits the NEC's appeal.
The Samsung SyncMaster 940BF delivers a clear, vivid picture for games and DVDs, but overall we found it average; other monitors offer more adjustability and features and better performance for less.
The Samsung SyncMaster 204B can handle productivity and entertainment tasks, but there are less expensive alternatives that offer comparable image quality and superior features.
Overall, Apple iWork '06 is a compelling package, though mostly due to Keynote 3. Keynote 3 is a better tool than PowerPoint, and Pages 2 offers some intriguing new features, though professional users will still yearn for Adobe FrameMaker.
NEC MultiSync LCD2180WG Review
The good: Produces excellent color quality; pivots between landscape and portrait mode.
The bad: Megaexpensive; lacks pivoting software; height not adjustable.
The bottom line: Though the NEC MultiSync LCD2180WGLED features new LED backlight technology, we're unconvinced it's worth $6,700. Most professional users will be better served by other, less expensive LCDs.
