I just purchased a new NEC 2690W2 display and I have to say I'm very disappointed with how uneven it's displaying a basic grey background (mac desktop for example). Even after having it on for about 10 hrs and calibrating it using the Spectravision included calibrator (which is very easy to use) I can clearly see a band of greenish grey on the left edge about 1.5"- 2", and a sort of magenta bloom from the bottom right side corner.
I also own an EIZO CE210W monitor which although about 2 1/2 yrs old, has no color shifting; it does have some slight unevenness now. I'm surprised after all I've read here and other forums about the NEC that it looks so bad. Am I expecting too much? It seems that a $1,500 display should be capable of producing an even grey all across the screen (both tonally and chromatically)?
I've arranged to send it back so I hope the next one will be better!
