REVIEW: NEC LCD2490WUXi-BK
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
With the 2490WUXi, NEC is extending its product palette in the "Professional Display" sector with a highly interesting 24-inch model. An IPS variant of panel is used (H-IPS), which has already been used in the 30-inch (3090WUXi) and 26-inch (2690WUXi) models. Unlike these two models, however, the NEC 2490WUXi does not have an extended colour space. This is not necessarily a disadvantage, depending on the area of the application – quite the opposite.

In terms of ports, the NEC 2490WUXi is modest as expected. This will hardly trouble the target user group. Two DVI inputs and a D-Sub VGA connection are completely sufficient for connecting the monitor with the computer.
On the other hand, the electronics on the model offer some "delicacies". The NEC 2490WUXi has a programmable 12-bit lookup table. This means, at least in theory, that hardware calibration is possible. We will look at this aspect in more detail in the course of the test. Through "GammaComp", the user can influence the screen gamma conveniently from Windows. Here, the access options go far beyond the usual targets. With "ColorComp", a function has also been implemented which should ensure a more homogenous colour, white and grey level display.
All results published in the test were obtained via the digital output of a Gainward GTX 280. A Lumagen RadianceXD was used to test the video functions. In addition, an OPPO DV-980H was used as a DVD player and a Sony S350E was used for playing back Blu-rays.
