NEC MultiSync 20WGX2 $499 save $300 @ HT

19 August 2007

Got a HT email talking bout clearance items so went and had a nosey. HT have this Nec for 300 less than elsewhere but they only have a few.
Looks like a lot to pay for 20 inch. PC authority thought the same after a good review but they were gonna pay 890! LInk below

Specs: "NEC MultiSync 20WGX2 - Flat panel display - TFT - 20.1" - widescreen - 1680 x 1050 / 60 Hz - 470 cd/m2 - 1600:1 - 6 ms - 0.258 mm - DVI-D, VGA"
From Pc authority:"The MultiSync 20WX2 is a superb choice for gamers, but most people will baulk at the $890 price tag for a mere 20in LCD."

    It does seem a lot for a mere 20"... and from a quick glance at the spec, there is nothing that really sets it apart from others? (Maybe something I don't know about?)

    yea - I've always wondered about the finite distinction you get between a 'well known brand' and a lesser brand. I always figure that unless you push it to the limits your probably not going to see any real difference - assuming that you dont have breakdowns.

    Well, if you're focussing on gaming, I feel that anything in the single milisecond figure is fine for the human eye, unless you are the bionic man I suppose. I mean anything less than 10ms is fine... as for the other bits of the spec - it has DVI, so that's fine.
