NEC Intros New Professional 23-Inch Displays

The company is offering two new 23-inch displays, the MultiSync P232W-BK and P232W-BK-SV, both designed to appeal to web designers, online video and photography professionals, and enthusiasts.

The P232W-BK is offered for MSRP $569 and uses a white LED-backlit IPS panel, which makes it slimmer than its predecessor and drops power consumption to 29 watts. An integrated ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the display's brightness based on lighting conditions. NEC promises that the P232W-BK delivers accurate, consistent and repeatable color performance. Connectivity includes DisplayPort, DVI-D, HDMI, VGA, and USB to run two computers with one keyboard and mouse, but with their own color space.

A step up from the P232W-BK, the high-end P232W-BK-SV adds hardware color calibration using NEC's SpectraView technology. The SV is priced at $819.

    And yet another 1920x1080 monitor (and the article doesn't even mention it).

    They look pretty nice!

    Too bad the price tag is a bit high for people on a budget like myself!

    john_4I hear ya, looked them up. overpriced considering 1080P monitors are a dime a dozen. "appeal to web designers, online video and photography professionals, and enthusiasts" RUBISHFor a couple hundred extra over the sv model, give me a Apple Cinema display at 2560-by-1440 any dayI have a 24" Samsung at 1920 x 1200 on my gaming rig and loath the day it dies because you can't find that resolution anymore.
    A dime a dozen? only if you consider buying them for gaming and regular everyday use. These NEC monitors are geared more towards designers and photographers as it has a high color gamut and excellent color reproduction. Try looking at the more professional models that run for thousands of dollars. When you are in an industry in which your work and clients rely on 100% color accuracy and reproduction, IPS's are the way to go.

    People, read the first line of the story. This is a professional series IPS monitor. It's primarily for graphic designers and the like who need a screen that does an exceptionally good job at recreation of colors. Professionals are not all that concerned with the who race you all seem to think concerning reaching 4k res. For some professionals they would sooner choose an old CRT monitor before a higher resolution LCD just to get better, more consistent, color reproduction. The same way you wouldn't grab a FirePro or Quaddro GPU for gaming, or a Xeon for your gaming rig or ultimate enthusiast PC, not everyone should buy an IPS monitor.
