I have Viewsonic display, and I am quite happy wtih it. But thing is Viewsonic specializes on monitors, while NEC is not. I cannot get any information on NEC monitors from their website. Perhaps you should see their website before deciding which to buy.
I have a friend who has the FE700 and he's pretty satisfied with it. He said he noticed some screen geometry problems that can't be fixed through the settings, though. Don't know if it's just him that's unlucky, or if they're all like that.
I run it at 1600x1200x32 at 75MHz all morning, noon and nighty nite nite and it is a pleasure. The text is just as good as any monitor I've ever laid eyes on. Nice and crisp and well saturated, as are the graphics. The two damper wires are visible but quite faint and I don't notice them at all--unless I search for them. I doubt they will bother you but you never know. This is my first Diamondtron/Trinitron type tube (I've used shadow mask since 1993) and I don't wanna go back! It is pretty easy on the eyes
I live in Calgary and got the monitor at 4 Star Computers down in Bridgeland, near downtown. It was $599 plus 7% GST, for a total of about $640.
The rebates, as far as I know, were only for the FE950 models, not the new pluses. All the places around Calgary selling the older model were trying to get $699 for them with a $75 rebate.
Have you found a manufacturer's rebate that I can use?
Where do you live?

I found this rebate, but it refers to the FE950 - I'm not sure if they classify the FE950+ as the same thing or not.
