NEC LCD2690WUXi - Gaming In High Definition Colour?
October 14th 2006, Igor Stankovic
It may sound confusing to you, but after we received the information from NEC about the upcoming LCD2690WUXi 26" WS LCD monitor, this was the first thought that came to my mind. As far as we can tell from the the specification itself, the LCD2690WUXi does look rather interesting! It does keep the 90 series legacy - evolved into the 26" bezel, and LG.Philips LM260WU1 A-TW-IPS (Advanced True White) IPS panel. Specifically, that legacy includes ColorComp™, Internal 12-bit lookup Table (LUT), Gamma selection, AmbiBright™ and SpectraviewII support. You may find more information about them at the following pages:
NEC was also kind enough to provide us with the preliminary spec sheet.
Surprisingly enough, NEC introduced few additional features too! 92% of the NTSC colour space ( 93.4% of the Adobe Gamut), better overdrive resulting in much lower G2G response time (7ms) and adjustable backlight. Such improvement in colour gamut may suggest that new type of the CCFL backlight is in place. According to the early reports, you can also adjust the backlight luminance and store this as preset next time when the monitor is powered on. So, for example, if you would like to work with 200 cd/m2, you will be able to adjust the monitor permanently to such luminance. In my opinion, any monitor or LCD TV with the ability to adjust the backlight, even if that's part of the power management, is a great advantage. Such feature may sound irrelevant, but in some situations it can even improve the picture quality and especially black depth. Reduced luminance is also nice option for the long desktop sessions. Apart from that, 7ms G2G and Overdrive Off/On are also in place.
We already featured the Overdrive Off/On existence previously in the LCD2090UXi. It would be interesting to see if this option is actually properly implemented this time as it may help reduce the video noise and other overdrive side effects. In essence, you can have the best of both worlds and use the overdrive whenever you feel like it. Interestingly enough, the LCD2690WUXi is the first 26" size panel - it's not an everyday sight and the question is: "is this panel size a proper middle ground between the 24" and 30"? - especially because you are still keeping the 1920x1200 resolution and that means less costs for the upgrade and no particular stress to the GPU. 30" is sometimes just too demanding and overwhelming. On the other hand, I'm slightly worried that keeping the same 24" resolution and adding the 2" more will introduce the 'chunky' pixels (and screen door effect) - but we can't tell for sure until first hand experience. With this screen size, keeping the optimal and ergonomic viewing distance is really important and with some clever adjustment you can probably keep the screen door and eye strain side effects on bare minimum.
Is this monitor capable to combine the colour critical work with the great gaming sessions on 26" screen estate in high colour fidelity? Well, we will tell you in November when we receive LCD2690WUXi sample from the NEC evaluation stock, as TFTcentral will feature the review of this monitor. We may have really superb all around high-end screen, perfectly capable for any task - ranging from gaming and movies playback to critical colour work. Unfortunately, this may come with the price as early estimation is in the range of $1750 (US), with prices hopefully being reduced after release. Release date is early November, although monitor will not be available for sale until December.
