REVIEW: NEC LCD2080UX
++ very good, + good, +/- satisfactory, - bad, -- very bad
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.
Next to the display the package contained the following items: one manual (quick manual) to set up the monitor, one D-Sub cable, one DVI-D cable, one power cable, and one CD-Rom with drivers, monitor profile, pivoting software and a detailed manual in PDF format. Additionally they deliver a wire cover enabling the cables to be invisibly ducted to the back when being looked at from the front.
The NEC 2080UX's outward appearance with its narrow frame is very pleasing (1.5 cm). The case is beige/white and the front frame is silver. Aesthetics are held plain and straight-forward. The NEC's side face makes a somewhat more stable impression, which doesn't lessen its excellent design however.
Pivoting is especially smooth running just as height adjustment. We, in particular liked the fact that there is a suspension point when the display is being rotated to portrait mode. There is no need for over-rotating and readjusting. The display is at perfect level when at suspension point. This outstanding rotating function is accomplished by a smooth running globe joint. The distance between bottom edge of the monitor and desk measures 16,5 cm in the highest and 3,5 cm (portrait 1,5 cm) in the lowest setting. Thus the offered bandwidth for height adjustment seems overly sufficient. The display also allows for sideways rotating, too. This is done by a turning knob invisibly attached to the underside of the foot. Furthermore, the display can also be slanted forward and backward. The cable connectors at the monitor's rear side can be accessed very easily.
