NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announces the new MultiSync PA Series, successor to the critically acclaimed MultiSync 90 Series, by introducing the MultiSync PA241W.

"The MultiSync PA241W, the first model in this series, focuses on both workflow productivity and color accuracy, with the aim to improve upon the success of the MultiSync 90 Series. Users that require a reliable display for color precision will want to take advantage of the sophisticated technologies used in the MultiSync PA Series, starting with the PA241W."

The MultiSync PA241W is available for shipment with an estimated street price of $1,079 and ships with a 4-year parts and labor warranty, including the backlight.

Oh, what a nice monitor... The kind of product I'd break into the store for :) The specs are awesome, and the price is OK. Too bad in my country this will probably end up being 1100-1300 Euros, making it unreachable for me. It's so incredible that people in poor countries like Romania, just accepted in EU, have to pay so much more than Americans who make a lot more money for the same product... twisted world we live in.
Well in the EU there's higher taxation and the benefit of that is more government supported healthcare and unemployment benefits and so forth, the US philosophy is 'you take care of yourself or you can goto hell'

So I accept there a slight increase in price, but the problem is that shops in the EU also give themselves a huge profitmargin, and there is where it gets ugly, and yeah shops in the EU also need to pay more tax and provide more protection for their employees, but many are pushing it way over the top.

And they cheat by pretending the euro isn't valued at 1.4 times the dollar in the first place, so they could sell a $1000 item for €1000 and then be making 40% more, and that should certainly cover the 20% tax AND the extra money shops need AND STILL make more profit than US shops.

So you prefer manufacturers screaming "Hey look at our bullshit 1 million:1(white at full brightness vs. black at lowest brightness) contrast ratio!"?
Hey I have a (TN) LCD with about 1000:1 and guess what? In the dark the blacks are never really black, and there's slight backlight bleeding too, so yeah LCD's do have contrast issues and you can pretend they don't but only if you are taking lots of medication to help you believe :)

Although I'd prefer a number on 'blacklevel' rather than contrast, since contrast you can cheat with by just making it able to be brighter and still have the issue with it never getting really black.
