Dell vs Nec
« on: November 29, 2012, 02:15:43 PM »

Can someone help me decide between these two:

NEC’s 22” MultiSync EA224WMi

or

DellTM UltraSharpTM U2212HM

You might want to share a bit more about what you hope to get out of your monitor ...

Yes of course! Sorry! I will use it mostly for reading text, and from time to time photo-shop design.

This is why I wanted IPS monitor. These two seem to be quite similar and the price is similar. I am tending towards Nec but I wanted to hear others people opinion.

Of the two, I suspect NEC is making the panels if that's important. I own a number of higher end NEC displays (spectraview) and can't say anything negative about them.

I recommend the Dell. They both have IPS panels and they're both LED backlit--both good features. However, the Dell specifies that it can reproduce 82% of the NTSC color gamut. The NEC doesn't mention how well it performs vis-a-vis any industry standard. Ability to reproduce a wide gamut is an important advantage. If the NEC were able to do so, I would expect them to tout that fact, as they do with some of their higher end models.

BTW, the link you provided for the Dell no longer seems to be valid. I found the technical specs for it here:  http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&sku=320-2736

Thank you all for your answers. I decided to go for the third option and to buy this:

I hope I was not wrong.

Andrew, I wonder if you can/would comment on Lacie 324i monitors. They are more expensive than the NEC but I wonder if they warrant the extra expense.
I am seriously thinking of upgrading my old(2008) imac to a mini with 3rd party monitor.

Eizo's professional line is quite good. That particular model was designed with gamers in mind, and so may not be the best selection for professional graphics and Photoshop work. The specs on that model are somewhat lacking in detail.

Last year I worked with a fellow with a wide gamut RGB LED LaCie but I'm not certain the model off hand (I can ask). What I can tell you was I wasn't at all impressed with the software driving it. We had some issues and I called tech support on site and while the people were quite nice, their support wasn't that effective. And LaCie doesn't make anything, the OEM from others. I'm not sure why this would cost more than an NEC unless indeed it's this tricolor LED unit. NEC a very long time ago (in computer years) built an RGB LED display which at the time cost $5000! It was really nice albeit small. Very difficult engineering to do right. NEC must have learned a few things and decided not to move forward with more RGB LED displays. A review is here if for historical purposes you want to know more about it:

Many years ago, I was a fan of LaCie and had a number of their products but the quality seemed to suffer more and more until I just moved away from keeping any eye on what they are producing.

Thank you for the history lesson and your reply.

I was aware that this is not Eizo professional monitor and that it is made mostly for gaming but I found excelent reviews in regard to image quality of this monitor. Here is one extremely detailed and with color gamut measurments:

Unfortunatelly its written in Czech (I used Google translate to read it http://translate.google.de/translate?sl=cs&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fextrahardware.cnews.cz%2Frecenze%2Fhracsky-ips-eizo-foris-fs2333-podruhe-tentokrat-i-dobrymi-barvami )

So, after all this time, are you pleased with the Foris?
