Many of you asked for a round-up of 27" IPS-based displays, and here it is. Although these screens feature similar specifications, you might be surprised at how much they differ, both in performance and price. Which of the three is right for you?
Most of us tend to leave our monitors in standby mode when our computers sit idle. NEC has a feature in its OSD that allows you to track energy costs, but the screen is more impressive in that it has very efficient power circuitry. In standby and off states, we detected no power consumption, and on a day-to-day basis, you can expect 33% less energy use than other IPS-based LCDs, even at similar brightness settings.
