REVIEW: NEC SpectraView Reference 21 Part 5
The NEC monitor comes with a simple cable duct, which is made of plastic; it is supposed to be hooked in on the rear side of the stand. When doing this, one should exercise caution, since otherwise one or several of the small hooklets might break off.
A simple plastic clip serves as a cable duct.

Cables can be easily hooked left and right into the duct. The concept may seem simple, but it does the job and is very convenient to handle.

Compared to the bulky housing of the NEC SpectraView Reference 21, the stand appears almost small, but the appearance is deceptive. Sized 18 x 20 x 1,8 cm (width x depth x height), the stand is larger as one might think and its plastic shell houses a heavy and supporting metal structure.
The base provides very firm stability on the desk; and even when bumping it, the monitor hardly begins to teeter. The whole device weighs in at a respectable 18.3 kg.
Underside of the stand of the SpectraView Reference 21. Four large rubber pads lend the monitor some very good stability properties, even on very plain surfaces.
A green Power LED on the NEC SpectraView Reference 21 indicates that it is operational. When in standby mode, it illuminates orange. Even in darker lighting conditions, we did not perceive the brightness of the LED as annoying.
