REVIEW: NEC LCD2690WUXi Part 8
If the HotKey function is activated, brightness and contrast on the NEC LCD 2690WUXi can be adjusted comfortably using the buttons on the front, with no need to open the OSD menu. The horizontal double button then changes the brightness and the vertical double button changes the contrast. The Factory Preset option restores all OSD settings to the original factory values. If particular settings are marked, these will be reset individually.
Advanced OSD Functions
Another of these functions is the Gamma Selection function which allows the user to define the gamma value. The OSD option Grayscale Mode allows the screen display to be changed to monochrome. Here, too, numerous setting options are available. In Mode 1, the input is in colour, but the monitor uses only green. The screen display is monochrome because only green data R3/G/B LUT are used. In Mode 2, the monitor changes to YUV.
The NEC LCD2690WUXi also comes complete with NaViSet software for adjusting the monitor via the PC. After installation, this appears in the Windows Properties menu, labelled Monitor settings. Although the most important monitor settings can be adjusted very comfortably with this software, NaViSet does not offer nearly as wide a range of settings options as the advanced OSD of the LCD2690WUXi. We do not think that the installation of NaViSet is absolutely necessary.
The NaviSet user interface is elegant and user-friendly, but is has a significantly more limited range than the advanced OSD.
