In this review, we are going to shed some light on the NEC LCD1990SXi, a monitor that combines an S-IPS (Super In-Plane-Switching) panel with Overdrive, resulting in a 9 ms response time grey-to-grey and 18 ms rise/fall, according to the manufacturer. This constellation is still rather rare, since the majority of manufacturers in the 19 inch segment employ Overdrive accelerated VA (Vertical Alignment) or TN (Twisted Nematic) panel.

NEC is advertising the LCD1990SXi as a high end monitor for demanding users, especially as an entry model in the fields CAD/CAM, DTP, finance, and medical imaging. The monitor is available in two different versions: The LCD1990SXi has a silver front bezel and a light grey chassis, while in the LCD1990SXi-BK, both the front bezel and the chassis are black.

In our review, we are going to find out whether the LCD1990SXi can be rightfully called a high end monitor and what users may expect from this unit. Although we had both color versions available, when taking pictures, we mainly focused on the light grey model, because this way a lot more details can be seen on the photos.

The NEC LCD1990SXi is available in two different color versions: Black front bezel and black chassis (right picture) version; silver front bezel and light grey chassis (left picture).

All results issued in this review were established using the digital DVI input. Except for the analog image quality test, which were established on the analog input. All tests were done using a Gainward GS FX6800 Ultra video card.
