REVIEW: NEC LCD2690WUXi2-BK
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
The NEC 2690WUXi2 replaces the 2690WUXi as a 26-inch model in the "Professional Display" series. The name and a glance at the technical details make it obvious that this is more a kind of facelift than a totally new construction. In light of the very good previous mode, however, this is in no way a negative omen, but instead awakens high expectations accordingly. Once more, a H-IPS panel is used, which has score well with outstanding viewing angle stability in the past.
Unlike its smaller brother (2490WUXi or 2490WUXi²), the NEC 2690WUXi² has an extended colour space, which completely covers the AdobeRGB colour space. With the implementation of an sRGB mode, NEC also promises suitable limitation in order to make it possible to display relevant content correctly in unmanaged environments.
A 12-Bit LUT and the processing precision of 16 bits show that NEC has not compromised in terms of electronics and that the 2690WUXi² has been kitted out for CEPS. In addition, the LUT on the 2690WUXi² can be programmed. Thus, we are curious to see if there is still the opportunity to carry out a hardware calibration with the "SpectraView II" software available in the USA. In fact, the marketing concept for Europe intends to allow for hardware calibration only for models from the "SpectraView" range.
One feature which stands out from the extensive electronics according to the data sheet is "ColorComp", which should improve the image homogeneity. Using "GammaComp", the user can have quite a large influence on the gradation via windows using suitable software.
The range of ports offered is not very extensive, but this should not be relevant for the target group. Two DVI inputs and a D-sub VGA input ensure connection with the computer.
All results published in the test were obtained via the digital output of an Nvidia Geforce GTX 280 from Gainward. A Lumagen RadianceXD and an iScan VP50 were 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 Blu-rays.
