At first this monitor seemed very expensive for its size.

Verified Purchase
I am very pleased with this monitor. I did an extensive search, unfortunately primarily online -- it would be preferable to see monitors but that's not possible for all. For my Powerbook 15" G4, I looked at Apples and Samsungs, read reviews, and finally settled on this NEC because of its specs and general NEC reliability.

I've had it now almost a month, 6 or 7 or more hours/day and it's excellent, sharp, clear and true colors (as true as true is, at least) with ample adjustments possible --- and as an especial bonus, it's really helped my eyes. I had been getting quite serious eye strain with the PB (and also using an iMac) but there is something about the quality of the NEC which has helped greatly.

Dec. 20: I remain very happy with the NEC monitor, no problems whatsoever. I just read a review in the Jan 08 MacWorld on LCDs that ranked the MultiSyncLCD205WXM the highest of 7 tested; maybe that's the new (and cheaper) version. Fwiw, it's an excellent and helpful article on how to choose an LCD.

I was like you -- reading reviews to make sure I was choosing the right monitor. And after reading and mulling over literally hundreds of reviews - I had finally narrowed it down to one. Though I am admittedly an NEC fan at heart, I was still willing to look at what other companies have going. This is by far the nicest monitor I've come across in a long time. It's absolutely huge, colors are spot on, and I've got no issue such as ghosting, bands, etc. I couldn't be happier about this product. Though I might seem rather expensive, this monitor is definitely worth every penny!
Amazon as always has great prices, quick and reliable shipping. Thanks!

NEC MultiSync 20WMGX2 20" LCD Monitor

I am sad to say that this monitor is no longer available on Amazon or Newegg. Your best bet would be to search eBay for one.

I loved my first 20WMGX2-BK so much that I had to get another one. I bought a second one and received it within the past week from a seller on eBay. Barely used, practically perfect condition for a grand total of $185 including shipping!

And to think that when I bought my first Brand New one off of Newegg it cost $499! Sure they had a rebate for -$100, of which I only ever saw $30 of, but that's a different story -_-

On to the review... First off, I have to applaud NEC for making such a fine TFT-LCD with so many inputs and even an included speaker bar, though I never actually used it. You have Composite (*), S-Video (***), Component (****), VGA (*****) and DVI (******) In here, basically in line with an LCD TV.

Once you see an AS-IPS monitor like this one, you will never want to go back to a TN panel like those that have been devoured by the masses (*cough* Samsung *cough*).

I did have my doubts about the refresh rates and ghosting coming from a CRT display. I play Counter-Strike and Source competitively and I could definitely tell on the 15ms+ refresh rate LCD monitors of the past. However, this LCD practically feels like my old CRT and I no longer am blaming refresh rates for being annihilated, because it just feels fast.

What I probably like most about this monitor is that its internal scaler does its job so well.
