The new NEC MultiSync GX²Pro models offer considerable performance benefits over the extremely successful GX² series. The 17” NEC MultiSync 70GX²Pro, 19” NEC MultiSync 90GX²Pro, and widescreen 20” NEC MultiSync 20WGX²Pro, have been specifically designed for the discerning game player and design-conscious home user. Improved response times of 2 ms (grey-to-grey) and an optimised contrast ratio make these LCD displays ideally suited for all entertainment and video applications whilst offering excellent word-processing and spreadsheet capability. The 17” and 19” models offer 1280x1024 (SXGA) resolution while the 20” MultiSync 20WGX2Pro widescreen model offers 35% more visible image with a recommended resolution of 1680x1050 (WSXGA+).

Wonder how overpriced these are going to be....The current NEC 20.1" screen is around $750......So I can only imagine.

I heard NEC was going out of Biz and looking for a buyer? Having used a number of NEC multi-sync monitors over the years, the early ones were pretty good and in my experience the last 5 years or so were junk. Don't know what they changed but our multi-syncs failed under warranty and some just after the 1 year warranty. NEC U.S. provided zero help. So naturally we haven't bought any NEC monitors since. YMMV

NEC has built nothing but quality monitors over the years. Not sure what the other poster is talking about.

Eastcoasthandle... "The other poster" has probably seen and used more NEC montiors than most folks and he speaks from experience. Check out some hardware review sites which have also confirmed problems with NEC monitors in the past and you'll see that NEC has had their share of problems. If you chose to believe otherwise so be it. The facts don't lie.

I have only really looked at the NEC 20.1" widescreen that goes for about $700.
I have to say (not including the price factor), that every review I look at for this monitor is great and I haven't heard any complaints about it.
I am not saying you are wrong, but not every monitor is horrible.
You are generalizing too much.

Just b/c you had a bad experience does not mean that all of their monitors suck or are not any good.
Some of their monitors have had their share of problems, but I have had problems with Viewsonic, ACer and SOny and I do not discredit them b/c their monitors are faulty and their Customer Service sux.
All CS sux bc they are mostly outsourced.
It is just the way things are and on top of this there have not even been any reviews on these monitors.

There is my rant for the day.
