Best place to buy NEC Multisync monitors?
« on: January 31, 2008, 12:20:33 AM »

It's time for me to replace my old CRT with an LCD, and various recent threads here have convinced me to go with the NEC MultiSync 2690WUXiSV (the version with a hardware calibrator).  The question is, where can I find one?  The NEC web site has links to four sellers, but three of the four have awful ratings at resellerratings.com, and the fourth lists the monitor as a "special order" item that they will send you "as soon as as they can obtain one" or some such language.  You can also fill out a form to send to NEC to have a sales rep contact you, but that appears to me to be more appropriate for businesses than for individuals just wanting one monitor.

I've checked B&H, and they don't appear have them.

Various people here have bought this monitor - where did you find it???

Thanks,
Lisa

Lisa,

I'm going through the same process as you.  Amazon currently has the version WITHOUT the calibration hardware/software for US$1275.   Search on "NEC LCD2690WUXI-BK"

I may buy through Amazon since I already have a colorimeter and can get the software through NEC:

Hope this helps,

Paul

Paul - thanks very much for the suggestion.  It looks to be a little more expensive than buying the two together somewhere, but it's a workable way to do it.  I'll probably do the same if I don't have any other suggestions.

I don't yet have an appropriate colorimeter (I have one, but it's for CRTs and can't be used with LCDs), so I'd buy the colorimeter from NEC too.
