REVIEW: NEC LCD3090WQXi-BK Part 2
The NEC 3090WQXi is delivered in very bulky packaging – here, "bulky" refers in particular to the considerable depth of the box. The scope of supply can be described as complete. A DualLink-DVI-D cable and a D-Sub-to-DVI-A cable which is used for transferring an analogue signal ensure instant connectivity.
A cover is supplied with the monitor to conceal the cable routing on the monitor’s base. In order to allow for the use of an alternative stand, four VESA screws are also included. A getting started guide is included in hard copy.
A fully-fledged manual is included on the CD delivered with the model. The CD also contains the "NaviSet" software, which can be used for settings from the computer. Colour profiles and test patterns, which should make it easier to set up the screen, are also available.
The NEC MultiSync LCD3090WQXi-BK looks very simple and also has a filigree look from the front. However, when you look from the side, you can see that this impression is wrong. The exterior is very deep for an LCD screen. We measured a depth of a good 11 cm. The manufacturing quality is good and the spacing is perfect. However, the NEC monitor is a little wobbly on its base, which is due to the pivot option.
Simple and in NEC’s typical "work look" – the MultiSync LCD3090WQXi-BK.
The matte frame is just 2 cm wide; thus, there is nothing standing in the way of multi-screen use apart from the user’s budget. Unlike the Eizo SX3031W, the plastic is smooth surfaced rather than rough. Only the viewer can decide which variant has the optical advantage.
The NEC logo is resplendent in the top left corner and the model description stands out on the top right.
The model also offers above the average in terms of adjustment options. The base allows for adjustment of 19 cm in height. This is considerably more than would normally be needed.
The height adjustment feature on the NEC MultiSync LCD3090WQXi, with a minimum of 3,5 cm and …
… a maximum of 22 cm, offers a lot of scope for adjusting the monitor to suit your work station.
However, we cannot forget the pivot function here, which requires sufficient space. In the lowest setting, the distance from the lower edge of the frame to the table surface is 3,5 cm; in the highest position, the distance is 22 cm.
