Introduction

The NEC LCD 1535VI is our first 15 inch LCD monitor under review, since we have only been reviewing 18 or 19 inch LCDs so far.

Design is rather a secondary aspect on this monitor. The ivory colored display looks like the typical computer monitor with a well thought over cable duct. In particular the internal power supply and the sidewise mounted power button stand out.

All results issued in this review have been established by using the digital input of a Gainward 750 XP Geforce4 Titanium graphics card.

Scope of supply

Next to the monitor, there is a manual, a power cable and an analog VGA cable. A digital DVI is missing unfortunately. There are no drivers or additional software. But drivers can be downloaded from the homepage, of course.

We digitally connect the display to the graphics adapter. Cables can be ducted through foot of the monitor by making use of a convenient cable funnel. There are no further functions the foot offers.

Image quality

The monitor delivers a gaudy picture with an overrepresented part of blue. The viewing angle stability of 110 degrees vertically is merely satisfactory, which results in clearly notable color shifts. But this is not much of a surprise at an angle of 110 degrees.

OSD

NEC managed to score here. The OSD holds a huge amount of possibilities for properly configuring the device. While it is indeed operated by more than 2 buttons, the menu navigation seems very well thought over and after a short time the user comes to grips with it. The menu items are:

1. brightness and contrast, automatic adjustment
2. automatic adjustment (analog input only)
3. position: left/ right, bottom/ top, width, optimization
4. color controls: red, yellow, green, cyan, blue and magenta
5. help 1: focus, zoom, signal source
6. help 2: language, OSM-setting, resolution and factory settings
7. information

Unfortunately the values are represented in bars and not in numbers. If it wasn't for this minor flaw, the OSD would be perfect.
