The NEC271W is a professional display. In the world of displays there are so much BS marketing hype tossed around in the form of insane contrast ratios, response times, memory card readers, 7 different kinds of inputs including one for your toaster and more. Anyone shopping for a display based on having a feature list you can rattle off against your friends shouldn't be looking at this display as there's plenty of Dell grade displays that will give you all that.

If you're a serious professional designer, photographer, or in the print pre-press area where color accuracy and control is critical this is your display. This is especially an important display for you if you're constantly having to work within different color gamuts as the display allows you to switch between AdobeRGB, sRGB, and the native full gamut all via the front panel. The amount of control NEC provides for this display is amazing. NEC allows you to calibrate this display to match the white point of the paper stock being used in a printer and even adjust the CMYK levels displayed so that what you see on screen is nearly proof perfect as to what will be printed. NEC tests every P-IPS LCD panel that goes into these displays and only uses the panels with the best overall uniformity. Any uniformity that's slightly off is calibrated at the factory and stored within the display hardware. There are no hot spots and the blacks are astonishingly deep, but that's what is to be expected when using P-IPS panels. These are the best LCD panels on the market period as they're a 10bit panel natively which results in an exceptionally wide color gamut, while traditional LCD panels are 8bit and cannot display as many colors.

This review was written for the Alaska Apple Users Group

Pros: Outstanding display, easy to calibrate and profile, excellent technical support
Cons: Moderately heavy, no support for VGA

Rating: 5 of 5 moose

Test conditions: Snow Leopard 10.6.6 in 64 bit mode on a Mac Pro with NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 graphics card using DVI cable, second computer is a Power Mac G4 tower with ADC to DVI connector

Conflict of interest: NEC provided the display for the purpose of the review and then offered to the reviewer at a significant discount from the retail price.

Few photographers or videographers have physical darkrooms these days. Instead, their darkroom exists largely in their computer. This virtual darkroom has two points of visual access: the display and some output mechanism such as a printer or TV screen. But all of the creative work is done through the display, making it the single most important part of the process. It is much more important that having the fastest CPU. With this in mind three years ago, I purchased a NEC announced the LCD2690UWXi, a 25.5" display that was available with its own calibration software (SpectraView II) and a specially calibrated colorimeter.

I have been extremely happy with with my NEC display, but technology marches on. So I was particularly interested to learn that NEC had released a new 27" display, the PA271W-BK-SV (BK stands for black; SV stands for SpectraView) that improves on their previous impressive product. I was even happier that NEC agreed to provide AAUG with an evaluation display to review. At the risk of spoiling the ending, allow me to say that I have not been disappointed.

I waited a few days (week) before writing a review just so I could get a feel and use of the NEC PA271. After researching and looking at so many aspects for a good if not great monitor
I finally ordered the NEC. Make no mistake this is a high-end color accurate display with a very strong build. The appearance alone look top notch pro series.

Initially the display is bright and contrasty yet neutral in the grays but after calibration using the Spyder3 Elite this took on a new feel. VERY good color/temp/neutrality in the grays and the
ability to select both white point and brightness created an excellent viewing experience.

Compared to an Eizo I saw which was very nice, there's absolutely no reason to think the NEC is a lesser display of not in my opinion better when one considers the image and color quality at a MUCH better price range.

I ignored ALL reviews that griped about instruction and setup etc. I didn't even bother with those since anyone with a fraction of experience can set this display up no problem.
I have it connected to a MacPro using the DVI supplied cable and the ATI 5870 - it's simply great.

I won't hesitate to recommend this display to anyone in the photography field or graphic design field -
I ditched my Apple led's and have not a single regret in doing so as this display is a superior product for color critical work.

Bottom line is that the top authorities on color management will mention this NEC or the 30" one over the Eizo or LaCie's.
Outside of these three brands it's not worth considering anything else but my vote goes to the NEC. (incidentally LaCie uses the NEC but with an added price bump).

Again though you will need to calibrate with either the NEC spectra view or in my case I used the Spyder3 Elite.
