After having reviewed the NEC 1860NX and 1760NX, it's now time to take a look at their bigger brother, the 1960NX. Considering design aspects all models of this series pretty much look alike except for the pedestal of the 19 inch monitor which has experienced some minor redesign.
All results issued in this review have been established by using the digital input, with the exception of the test runs for analog image quality, which have been established on the analog input. Our test bed ran with a Gainward 750 Geforce4 Titanium graphics card.
Scope of supply
NEC delivers a package containing: a manual, a power cable, a D-Sub VGA cable and a CD with a detailed manual, color profiles and drivers. NaviSet, just like in the past, still has to be downloaded from the Internet and does not come with the accompanying CD.
Design and Mechanics
Design is functional and simple. The foot allows for continuous adjustment that is easy to handle. The distance between bottom frame and desktop measures 15,3 cm when using the highest possible setting and 4,1 cm when using the lowest possible setting. The foot can easily be rotated to the right and to the left.
