REVIEW: NEC LCD1990SXi Part 4
On the upper left, one can see the black lever for releasing the chassis. On the upper right, you can see the monitor arm. Below is an illustration of the foolproof unmounting procedure of the stand.
A striking characteristic of the NEC LCD1990SXi are its ventilation slots on all sides. While the monitor only gets slightly warm at the bottom, it gets much hotter at the top.
NEC also offers a soundbar as an optional accessory, which can be simply mounted to the lower bezel. Unfortunately, we did not have the soundbar available for review.
The build quality of the NEC LCD1990SXi is nearly flawless. Merely the lower part of the bezel protrudes a little bit, albeit it is only visible when looking from above at the inner side of the bezel. One should also note the scraping sound that the stand produces when turning it on the table.
The power LED of the NEC LCD1990SXi illuminates blue during operation. Alternatively, one can also select the color green in the advanced mode of the OSD (On Screen Menu). In standby mode, the light of the LED turns orange.
The NEC LCD1990SXi presents itself quite flexible in terms of LED colors.
The monitor houses an internal power supply unit and operates basically silent. There is an almost inaudible very faint humming sound that can only be heard until you hold your ear directly to the back side of the case.
According to the manufacturer, the power consumption of the NEC LCD1990SXi is about 46 Watts during normal operation and less than 1 Watt in energy saving mode or when turned off. We checked these values using a measuring device.
The maximum power consumption was measured without the separately available soundbar. At 35.2 Watts, our measurement data are significantly below the specifications stated by the manufacturer. And when the monitor is turned off via the control buttons, it draws a mere 0.1 Watt. Additionally, the NEC LCD1990SXi provides a power switch with which it can be physically disconnected from power. The switch is located on the left side, allowing for comfortable access. When turned off with this switch, the consumption drops to zero.
On the left you can see the power switch; the right picture shows the underside of the stand. Notice the turntable swivel in the middle.
