5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great monitor
I tried a few monitors before I found this one. I actually bought and took back four other 19" monitors. The only other one that even could compare with the picture quality was the Sony that I tried. But that one gave me bad headaches for whatever reason. This FE950+ is a great monitor. The color looks great, and the text is VERY clear. The style of the monitor is very plane. I wish they would make them nicer to look at, but the actual picture is just beautiful! Mine came with a defect on the plastic casing. I actually bought mine at Circuit City online, and the one I bought was the last one. They are no longer carrying this model. So, I am settling for this one even though the case has the defect just because the picture quality is so good. I've only had this monitor about three days now, so hopefully it will last. I definitely rate this five stars!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars NEC , Nineteen is the King!
Because the prices for the monitors are down, I thought about replacing my 15" monitor with a better one. I 'surfed' around the 'Net, looked around the electronics store and found that NEC Multi-Sync FE950+ gives the best view performance. I specially liked the built-in glare screen that made 'staring' at the screen less stressful to the eyes. The only small drawback that I noticed was the loud 'hum' that the monitor makes when you turn it on but like all things, you get used to it. Sure there's a lot of cheap 19" monitors out there but do you really want to buy another monitor next year to replace the cheap one you just bought? For the first time buyers, NEC is one of the most reliable name in electronics. You can do no wrong in buying this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Monitor!
Let me start by saying NEC manufactures outstanding monitors! I'm the conputer, data entry, secretary person at our family owned & ran automotive garage (we do fleet service for companies such as Art Van Furniture up here in Michigan). The Offices are directly connected to the service (garage) area. The office area accumaltes lots of Greasy dust, as well as our computers. This greasy dust has killed 2 computer systems but we have 2 9-yr old NEC MultiSync XV17 shadow mask monitors that are still running strong. The monitor I replaced was an NEC MultiSync XV17+ shadow mask monitor that was 10 years old & with a failing picture tube still gave great graphics.

I had much apprehension about getting an aperture grille monitor because of all the hoopla about the 2 visible lines that run horizontially across the screen. In fact, I decided to go with the Pioneer 19" shadow mask space saver ...but after waiting weeks without it shipping I began looking again. I read various reviews that stated: if you play alot of games & do a lot of graphic intensive work on your PC then you want an aperture grille monitor. So I canceled the order for Pioneer monitor & Purchased this monitor instead.

This is an awesome monitor. The graphics are extremely crip & clear. The anti-glare screen makes looking at the monitor for hours easy on the eyes. The price is unbelievably low for the quality.

As for those 2 lines. They are visible, especially on really light backgrounds. But I had to stare long & hard to find both of them. They're extremely faint & about as thick as thin strand of light-gray hair. I use my computer to watch DVD's; to play games such as the Myst series & the Longest Journey; to run programs such as Bryce 3D & Poser; & to run Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, & Access). MS Word is the only program that I've noticed the 2 lines in, but once I get some text up on the screen the lines pretty much disappear into the background.

If you spend most of your time in Word Processing programs then you should buy a shadow mask monior. If you run a lot of graphic intensive programs then you'll love this monitor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific Monitor
At first I wanted a flat-panel monitor, but I realized that I could get a very-high quality big screen monitor for less money, like this one. The NEC Multisync FE950+ flat screen 19" monitor truly delivers high quality for a low price. It's bright and beautiful, even going up to 1792 x 1344 maximum resolution at 68 Hz, with a 0.25 to 0.27mm variable dot pitch. Most people will keep their resolution at 1280 x 1024, which enables a completely flick-free refresh rate at 85 Hz. There have been some comments about the two very faint lines which run horizontally. I didn't notice them at all except against completely white backgrounds (which are rare except for Word and some web pages). These barely noticeable lines are negligible and make little difference in the overall great quality you get with this monitor. Also- the comment has already been made that ALL aperture grille monitors have these two lines, and if you want great color and picture quality you'll have to go for an aperture grill monitor. Another great thing about this NEC is the small footprint it leaves for such a large screen size- the height, width, and depth are all roughly 17 ½" (which is quite small). There are numerous controls to customize the screen (size, color, etc), more control than you'll ever really need probably (but it's sure nice to have as many options as possible). Like all 19" monitors it's really only 18" viewable, but I find this to be big enough whether I'm surfing the web or watching a DVD. I really was pleased with this monitor; it's not very expensive and not too bulky, yet still delivers very high quality performance. I highly recommend this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect...even with those lines.
DeityLord below me has noted the lines and he's right, but there's an explanation in the manual which says these lines are normal for an aperture grill monitor. Matter of fact, I never noticed these (and I had to look hard) until I read his rating and that's because they're only "highly" visible when you're working on a white screen. Therefore, if your primary need is word processing, they could be annoying.

Being as most of my use is internet and photo work, they're hardly there and from the moment I plugged it in, the 950 was perfect. It's a beautiful image, great colors, and I didn't have to do a single bit of tweaking as the factory settings were just the way I like them.

The price is certainly right here, and at just over three hundred bucks (shop around!) this will do me just fine until the next upgrade or a better and newer technology becomes affordable. ... Read more

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

The AccuSync 95F is a flat screen CRT (cathode ray tube) that combines high quality images with a very reasonable price tag. This 19-inch monitor (18 inches viewable) combines a 1,600 x 1,200 maximum resolution with a flicker-free 76 Hz refresh rate and a low 0.25mm dot pitch for accurate, clear images, ideal for a wide range of home and small business applications.

A multilayered, dark-tint, antistatic screen coating helps to reduce glare and to deliver a sharp, crisp picture, while the refresh rate increases as the resolution decreases--down to 160 Hz for 640 x 480 resolution, further helping to reduce glare and the resulting eyestrain. Horizontal frequency ranges from 31 to 96 kHz, while an invar shadow mask resists expansion, even on high brightness settings.

The easily adjustable menu-driven controls include brightness, contrast, horizontal/vertical position, moiré, degauss, and more. The Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) complies with both EPA Energy Star and NUTEK standards. Weighing about 55 pounds with a footprint of slightly under 25 inches by 23 inches, the 95F connects to either Mac or PC via a Captive 15-pin mini D-sub input cable and comes backed with a generous three-year parts and labor warranty. ...

  • 1,600 x 1,200 maximum resolution at 76 Hz

5-0 out of 5 stars great monitor, great price
apparently, manufacturing quality is spotty on this product, because my 95F is great. My 95F has sharp graphics & text, and no edge distortions; I did need to use the on-screen controls to adjust things, but that seems to be a normal thing these days. I normally run it at 1280x1024 @85hz, and 9pt text is clear and easy to read. It worked fine with my Powerbook G3 and NT/98 boxes

2-0 out of 5 stars Never Again!
I have had this monitor for over 2 years. It's reliable, but the display quality leaves a lot to be desired. There's terrible moire that's hard to get rid of and the edges and corners never look right. I have played with all the buttons until my finger tips started to hurt. I went with NEC's reputation and bought the monitor sight unseen, a decision I have regretted ever since.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't get this monitor if you value your eyesight
About a week ago I had my 17" Dell monitor "upgraded" with the AS 95F. After one day of use my eyes were burning. The monitor has an annoying flicker in the lower right corner, regardless of the refresh rate used. There are also light horizontal bands present in the white backgrounds. My friend in the next cube has the same problems with his AS 95F as well. I would rather have my 17" Dell monitor than the AS 95F.
Since visual quality is the most important feature in a monitor IMHO I gave this model a rating of 1. I would not buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not that good
Exactly the same problem as the other guy after running games and stuff, it will shut off. it [makes me mad], if you want this monitor for games might as well return it right now, ive looked at other places with reviews and they all have the same problem, its a bad product. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The NEC MultiSync FE950 monitor features NEC's totally flat aperture grille technology for an image with less glare, distortion, and reflection than similar models in this class. The FE950 is ideal for mainstream business and demanding home users.

With 18 inches of viewable screen real estate and a modified bulb design from previous NEC lines, the FE950 produces more than 300 percent brighter images than many comparable CRTs. The unit features a 0.25- to 0.27-millimeter variable grille pitch for a crisp picture. The recommended resolution for this model is 1,280 x 1,024 at 85 Hz--perfect for most applications. The next highest resolution--1,600 x 1,200--is supported at 76 Hz, making for a high resolution without any decipherable flicker. The supported modes go as high as 1,792 x 1,344 at 68 Hz.

All of the controls are on the front, providing easy push-button access to the monitor's onscreen menus (OSM). Through the OSM, you can control brightness, contrast, size, position, screen geometry, and even use the GlobalSync control to adjust for picture irregularities that are caused by the earth's magnetic field.

NEC offers optional IntelliBase base replacements for their FE series monitors. With this add-on, you can add USB connectivity, built-in sound, or both, to the FE950. The company backs the FE950 with a solid three-year limited parts and labor warranty. --Stephen W. Plain ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Monitor loses sync sporadically after 2 years of use
After using this monitor for a couple of years, this monitor starts losing sync sporadically. The losing of sync is not caused by the video adapter as this happens with two difference video adapters.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent bang for the buck
I've held 2 of these FE950s for around a year and a half now. Both display very crisp pictures. For gaming these are top knotch monitors. The standard resolution I run for desktops are 1280 x 1024 @ 32bit and 85hz. In games I usually run 1024 x 768 @ 32bit, mainly because of restrictions of my GeForce4ti 4600.

I have yet to have any issues with these monitors, I tote at least one to LAN Parties constantly, around once a month or more. I have abused these monitors to the utmost point and still they are going strong.

The only issue I have with them is the fact that they are very heavy... So if you are a LAN Party person you may look for a lighter monitor, but I've yet to have a problem with carrying it around.

Other than that they are very nice monitors.

3-0 out of 5 stars An OK CRT
The FE950 is a decent monitor.
It takes too long to startup (slow charging) and takes forever to sync to a new resolution setting. It also takes forever to turn off.

The CRT coating is excellent as there's almost zero glare but the quality is lackluster. The text and graphics are NOT crisp and I find myself squinting to see graphics clearly.

Overall I would not give it a STRONG BUY rating but rather give it a OK BUY rating. If you find one on sale for dirt cheap prices, go for it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Blurryness, Moire, Misconvergence
I bought this monitor a few weeks ago, and was very disappointed by the picture quality. I spent about 6 hours tweaking the controls, and using a utility called CheckScreen to test it, but was not able to get a satisfactory picture. Amazon, very nicely replaced the unit, but the new one has exactly the same problems as the old.

First, let me mention the good things about the monitor, because there are monitors out there that are worse than this one. Like the 17" FE700, it has very bright, rich, and contrasting colors that are uniform across the entire screen. (The ViewSonic GS790 in comparison, has poor uniformity). Also, the packaging looks very nice and the on-screen controls are easy to use.

However, there are some problems with the picture. There is a considerable amount of moire, which can't be gotten rid of with the moire adjustment. Moire is basically a pattern of vertical dark lines. This is especially visible on the hatched shut down screen in windows, or if you use a monitor test utility. There is a slight horizontal vibration in the picture which seems to be helped, but not completely cancelled by the moire adjustments. There is slight misconvergence in the red, green and blue beams. Possibly due to the misconvergence, in the area within 2" from each edge of the screen, the picture is blurry while in the center it is very sharp. Lowering brightness and contrast does seem to help a bit.

If you use this monitor for playing games and watching DVDs, you will probably not be bothered by any of the blurryness, but if you spend a lot of time each day looking at text, I would reccomend getting another monitor. If you do a lot of tweaking, you might end up happy with the monitor, but there are definitely beter ones out there. I sent back the second FE950 and exchanged it with the Sony E400 which has a much clearer picture and is good in every other respect....

Sincerely, Ilya Rosenberg

2-0 out of 5 stars annoying buzzing sound when running at 1280x1024
I had high hopes for this monitor. However, I encountered several problems. When trying to run at 1280x1024, the monitor would always emit an annoying buzzing sound whenever there was a lot of white color on the screen. This did not happen at higher or lower resolutions and was independent of how many colors were being displayed. I had to downgrade the refresh rate to 75Hz from 85Hz to make this sound go away.

Second, color purity was not consistent across the screen. Colors on the left side of the screen appeared different than on the right side. Trying the various control settings did not help.

I'm probably going to return this monitor. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love mine!
First off, why in the heck would you want to run at those lower resolutions with a 19? I bought mine so i can take advantage of the higher res.

Here is some common sense logic for you, if you want to run those lower res, why dont you buy a Packard Bell 15 inch and save $$???

5-0 out of 5 stars NEC Multisync FP950 Professional Series 19" Monitor
I have performed an exhaustive search for the ultimate 19" computer monitor. Being a perfectionist, I wanted the best monitor available at a reasonable price that included style, high quality color picture, sharp focus and brightness, complete and easy-to-use picture adjustments, totally flat screen and minimal cabinetry surrounding the cathode ray picture tube to give the appearance of a larger screen without the annoying distraction of an oversized cabinet. Since, it seemed that all of the monitors examined had at least some flaws noted in the reviews, I was pleasantly surprised that they were minor and basically unfounded in this particular NEC monitor. I am totally satisfied with it's performance and it's exceptional style. I already had the NEC Multisync FE700 17" monitor which I equally treasure. There is no other like NEC!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Monitor
This is a great monitor. The lines are sharp and text is very clear. The screen controls are outstanding - supporting a number of adjustments to ensure the display is positioned and sized correctly at various resolutions. Glare is much less than it was with my older Dell 17" Trinitron monitor (it being a flat screen with anti-glare coating as well). The cabinet is stylish and compact - fitting in about the same space as the Dell 17" Trinitron monitor it replaced.

Large monitors are designed to give you greater desktop real estate yet display images and text at about the same size as you would typically see on a smaller monitor running at lower resolutions (640x480, 800x600). Just as smaller monitors (15 and 17") are not optimized for higher resolutions (1152x864 and up), larger monitors are not optimized to run at lower resolutions. This isn't isolated to NEC monitors. I've used large monitors from many vendors and they all struggle to display lower resolutions as clearly as they do at resolutions they were design for. However, I wouldn't say it's so bad that you cannot bear to run at the lower resolutions.

If you intend to run at the lower resolutions with a 19 or 21 inch monitor, I would suggest you go test drive a few large monitors at your local retailer just to make sure the clarity is what you expected.

5-0 out of 5 stars NEC always makes it!
Firstly, I must state that I think the same with Smiff Desine. The idea of seeing blur letters is completely a rubbish, that monitor is designed especially for CAD\CAM users. Everybody should be knowing this! So you won't work in lower resolutions like 800x600 in any case, by the way let me remind that's a 19" monitor! That NEC FP950 really rocks when you set it to 1024x768 or over. Sharp colours, fast horizontal and vertical refresh, a tube using GRILLPITCH technology, being able to absorb %90 of light etc. and also being a NEC makes this beast THE BEST selection! - especially for people studying engineering like me in my opinion - . Trust me, it's not a waste of money and the technical support is well enough at least to take care of you. Why thinking still?

5-0 out of 5 stars NEC FP950 19" CRT Monitor
Before we go anyfurther, ignore the last review concerning blurred letters -just take any picture on your computer and enlarge it to 200% and you'll get the idea. Anyway, as an engineering design professional I've found this monitor a delight, it will display higher resolutions at a higher refresh rate than any other 19" monitor, the first thing you'll notice how vibrantly it displays colours and if you set your display to an appropriate resolution ie. not <1280x960 (you don't run a monitor of this size @800x600) you'll be rewarded with incredibly sharp and detailed images. The FP950 also has a suprisingly small footprint considering it's got the flatest display I've ever seen. As far as customer service in the US goes I can't comment, as I bought this monitor in the UK but the 3 year OS warranty certainly provides peace of mind. So if your after a 19" monitor and you're applications demand such performance, it's money well spent. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely the most bang for the buck
I have two NEC Multisync 95 19 inch monitors. At the time I shopped the entire store to see what the best video picture was. Hands down the Sony flat screen CRT was the best at almost twice the price of the NEC. A close second was the NEC. It was clearly a better picture than everything else in the store. It was more expensive at the time, then it is now.
In a time when everyone is going LCD flat screen, mini slim monitor crazy, I have come to realize that the CRT monitors have a huge edge on picture quality-dollar value. Mating that to the fact that they are the least expensive, and you have a winner. Personally, I don't mind that one foot of real estate being taken up by the back of the monitor, when I can buy a larger unit for less money, and a superior picture. I must admit LCDs have come along way since they were introduced. Then new NEC LCD1725 is a beautiful picture, and the Sony 19 is as well. For the most part LCD pictures are quite disappointing. Even the expensive Plasma screens at ten times the money, don't give you the clarity of the Sony, and are still tweaked out by the NEC.
The difference in size allows me to move the monitor farther away from me, so the miniscule radiation is of no effect.
The thing about the LCDs is that they have a two dimensional quality about them. Some even have a cartoon appearance. It's a fad, but clearly an inferior picture for twice the price.
What does this all have to do with this NEC monitor? Everything. This NEC is an incredible monitor for the money. You would be hard pressed to find anything else in the marketplace that can compare to it. In a Consumer Reports review of monitors, they rated Sony, NEC, and Dell the best.
NEC on their web site, have a full suite of drivers, and software downloads available 24/7.
Well enough monitor talk for now. Hope this helps. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazon is the best!
I strongly recommend this display. NEC makes wonderful displays, and this one is worth every penny. The price Amazon gave me was very competitive, and I had already checked out 5 other online stores. The screen is extremely reflection-free due to the 100% flat screen and proprietory glass screen treatment. That means no reflection from surrounding/overhead lights - and thats a good thing for designers who work with color. The dot pitch is .25, big-assed resolutions with my nVidia 64MB card, so you get very sharp images. Refresh rates are great, and I dont feel fatigue in the eyes even after working long hours on it.
Its not a very "cool" cabinet, but isnt bad either. Its a heavy monster weighing in at 50 lbs, but has a petite footprint. It even has sRGB support, not to mention all the regular featuers such as on-screen controls. The package didnt have a driver CD, but downloading one from the internet was a breeze (nec.com). I use this with Dell, XP and it works great.
Now for the best part. Ordering through Amazon.com was a dream. The site is great, and addressed all my questions from the very start. Customer Services is absolutely incredible, they won my heart. They are most courteous and professional people to do business with. I strongly recommend you buy from Amazon. I know I always will.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny
The NEC MultiSync FE950+ has a beautiful display and text at higher resolutions is very crisp and clear. At higher resolutions, the text grows fuzzy at 85Hz, but clears up at 75Hz. This monitor is fantastic for gamers as it increased my 3DMark2001 Benchmark Test score by over 100 points. Whether used for games, movies, or just regular computing, this monitor provides an excellent, crisp, display for almost any user.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the very best...
The NEC FE950+BLK is a striking addition to any desktop's decor, having a small footprint for such a large picture, and the black case... mmm. Beyond the aesthetic appeal of the case and slim, ergonomic design there are details like the cables in the rear (being installed vertically) which save a couple of inches of space behind the monitor... and keep cables from being smashed against a wall, etc.
OK. The picture. Wow, what a picture it is. Crisp, clear, bright, and very nice contrast. THIS is why people seek after flat screen monitors. The colors on-screen are some of the nicest I have seen, being true-to-life colors, which is important to me as a designer. This monitor will push higher resolutions than most in it's class, and it does so with ease. Viewing for hours on end is easy on the eyes, too. What a pleasure.
There are two extremely faint lines on the screen (I dare you to look) from the support wires for the aperture grill that are barely visible. IF you notice these, you can easily get used to, and forget all about them. They certainly are not a distraction and as I mentioned, are barely visible.
This is a keeper. All in all, I am very impressed - and this after trying several monitors first. My wife's NEC FE950 is what turned me on to this one. A nice little investment that I can only think of replacing one day in the future with the NEC 1250+BK, the 21" big brother to the FE950.
Highly Recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Professional Quality Monitor
Before buying it, and over a period of 6 weeks, I compared the Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 920 with almost all top monitor manufacturers, from Sony, Viewsonic, Samsung, Eizo, NEC, Hitachi, CTX, Sceptre, and KDS. My key metric was performance, followed by price. I needed a new monitor to replace my 17 inch Optiquest V775 which had lost its blue color after 5 years of use.

So why did I settle on the Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 920?

1. Very high resolutions and refresh rates: I am running it at 1600 x 1200 at 85 Hz (maximum PC resolution and fully flicker free). You can also run it at 1280 x 1024 at 85 Hz or lower.

2. A uniform 0.24 mm aperture grille (AG) pitch. This is in contrast to the latest Sony FD Trinitron tubes which have a variable 0.24 (center) -0.25 (corners) AG pitch.

3. Outstanding and uniform focus throughout the display area, regardless of resolution, and even at 1600 x 1200.

4. Excellent geometry: straight and parallel edges on all 4 corners, with only a very slight, almost unnoticeable bowing in of the video image on the top of the monitor.

5. Superb on screen display and controls - more than you will ever use. Full controls for size, angle, geometry, color purity (4 controls for 4 corners), horizontal and vertical alignment of blue, red, and green guns, ... you name it! All in a very intuitive and easy to use format.

6. A "fine picture mode", enabled via a single key in front of the monitor, that enhances the contrast for text based applications.

7. Light (for a 19 inch monitor) - less than 10 lbs more than my old 17 inch, at 51 lbs (23 kg).

8. Space saving - a short depth of only 18 inches - this is only 0.5 inches deeper than my old 17 inch monitor!

9. And finally, Mitsubishi quality which has made its monitors famous among graphic professionals and desktop publishers.

As for the price, this monitor is only ... more ... than the 17 inch Sony CPD-G200, with better quality and specs, and 2 inches more (diagonal) of space....

I highly recommend this monitor.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away
I have had nothing but problems with this monitor. So far, the company (NEC) has sent me 2 DOA (dead on arrival) replacement monitors that are supposedly rebuilt. They are both worse than my original.

I think this model just wears out faster than the average CRT monitor. Mine died after 1 year.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sharp display, but poor color temperature
This is a good intermediate quality monitor. The display is perfectly flat and has excellent sharpness and color saturation, and at 1280x1024x75Hz the display is very clear.

There are three things about this monitor that I don't like. First is the contrast. You have to turn the brightness and contrast up all the way to make whites appear white. Second is the image quality at higher resolutions. If you go higher than 1280x1024 the quality of text degrades noticeably, and at 1600x1200 you'll give yourself headaches trying to read anything.

The thing about this monitor that I liked the least were these two annoying lines across the upper and lower halves of the screen. At first I thought it was a defect, but the manual says they're supposed to be there (so if you buy this monitor, you too will have to live with these lines). The lines aren't that bad if you're reading text or surfing with a browser, but try to do image editing or graphic design with this; it drove my wife and I nuts.

While the monitor does have a sharp image and good color, the poor contrast and annoying lines were too much for me to accept for the price I paid, and today I returned the monitor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the price
As a professional graphic designer, I've seen and worked on many monitors over the years. Excluding monitors used for things like color correction duties, this monitor is one of the best I've seen. It provides consistent, reliable, and extremely sharp image quality. When compared to comparable Sony & Viewsonic models, this shines above the rest. And to top it off, it has a better price point. Overall, I think this is a great buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars A performance monitor at moderate price
Recently I bought a power computer without monitor. I needed to find a monitor which can match this computer. The first concern is the performance: Rich and precise color, sharp image,totally flat screen and flick free. The second concern is cost. But I do not want cheaply made models. After careful comparison, I narrow down to three manufactures: NEC, Mitsubishi and Sony. Sony is a big name. You have to pay extra for its fame. Sony's 19 inch flat models sell for high bucks. If you go to sony's homepage, they are even too shy to tell you the refresh rates at maximum resolution for their monitors!(A lot of people do not look for refresh rate. Instead they care more about maximum resolution. But without a high refresh rate, very high resolution will be meaningless). So in my view, sony's monitors are good but not worth so much money. The NEC-Mitsubishi homepage shows all the technical information you need to know about their monitors before making decisions. Then I narrow it down to 2 models: NEC FP 955 and Mitsubishi DP920. Both of them are perfectly flat screen. Finally I chose Mitsubishi DP920. Why? The reason is simple. It is a excellent monitor with maximum resolution 1600x1200 at 85 Hz (Even at the highest resolution it is flick free!!!), and 0.24 mm uniform aperture grill. While the NEC FP955 is also a terrific monitor, I did not choose it since I am not a graphic designer I do not want to pay for extra resolution I do not need. When finally my DP920 ordered from Amazon came, I was completely satisfied and happy with my wise dicision. With [the money]it is worth of your every dollar. I am impressed by its rich color and sharp image. Mitsubishi is not a good marketer. That is why it can only sell for less for such a superb product. I strongly recommend it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

If you're looking to move on from a teeny-tiny 15-inch monitor, consider upgrading to the NEC AccuSync&nbsp;90 as money well spent. In addition to the mammoth 18-inch viewable screen size, the footprint of the AccuSync&nbsp;90 almost equals the footprint of a 17-inch monitor--sure to save plenty of precious desk space.

At a dot pitch of 0.26 millimeter, this shadow mask CRT presents a fine display. It isn't the sharpest of monitors, but text and images are clear and detailed. At higher resolutions, however, we found that smaller font sizes become nearly illegible. We also noticed some ghosting near the edges of the monitor. Still, there's a lot to like about the AccuSync&nbsp;90. Colors are rich and deep, contrast controls are strong, and the screen is surprisingly flat for a shadow mask CRT.

With a maximum resolution of 1,600 x 1,200 at 76&nbsp;Hz, the AccuSync&nbsp;90 is no slouch, and at the recommended resolution of 1,280&nbsp;x&nbsp;1,024 at 89&nbsp;Hz, eyestrain is certain to be a thing of the past. The AccuSync&nbsp;90 is a well-rounded monitor that should appeal to consumers on a budget. High-end graphics users might want to shy away from the AccuSync&nbsp;90's dull image quality, but for general business applications, the AccuSync&nbsp;90 should fill the bill nicely. --Dan Simpson

  • High refresh rates

Cons:

  • Some ghosting apparent

Works great. Plug-n-play. No problems. This black monitor has worked perfect for the past 2 months. Dell has free shipping, so it was a great bargain. Text and images are sharp. Great for watching DVD movies on. It's not a flat-screen (slightly curved glass), but that's not really a problem.

1-0 out of 5 stars acusync sinks to the bottom
We purchased this monitor and found out that it had a fault when it arrived, however we checked our video card and the rest of the system first. Because of this we did not return it under warranty until after the 30 day period for returns. So now we have to pay for shipping from east coast to west coast 55lbs. I recieved a very unsympathetic answer from the customer support and will now be consulting a lawyer. The new monitor seems ok now....but I wonder how long before we have to pay out again. If I had paid a little more and got a monitor from the local pc shop, I would have had no problem returning it and no shipping....as I have with other faulty components before. Shouldnt the point of online shopping these hard days for the internet merchants be to assure people that it is better than the local shop? Well, next time I need something I will buy local.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, More than expected, A BEST BUY!!!
The statistics speak for themselves.18" viewable screen with only about an extra inch for box. Also a small footprint to boot. No pun intended but this is a bargain for anyone that works with graphics & has no time for distractions. Visual comfort with that little extra> good pricing!! Easy to set up, plug n play..If you have an older system, NEC has an easily downloadable driver for this NEC90 monitor. BUY IT NOW!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Monitor
When I bought a couple of these for work, I fully expected to do some serious rearrangement of our desks just to get them to fit (not that we have messy desks or anything [smile]). Much to my surprise I was able to fit them on replacing the 17 inch monitors with very little effort. The quality of the image is great, it works fantastic with my ATI all-in-wonder card and chugs away 9+ hours a day while doing flash and html programming...

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a very, very good monitor!
I am extremely picky about my monitors. I looked at the fastest LCDs I could find (17 ns) before this screen, but with the dead pixels and lack of color accuracy, I was turned off. I found that LCDs always have a lot of color "pop" to their displays--sometimes so much that you have to squint to look at them--but with the current technology, they also have muddy dark tones which obscure the detail in the shadows of pictures.

When I fired up the Diamond Pro 2060u, I was not particularly impressed with the screen brilliance. Yes, the screen was color accurate and sharp throughout, but there was very little intensity. I had the contrast at 100%, the brightness at 35%, and the color temperature at 9300K. I could turn up the brightness and the light areas of the screen did become brighter, but the black level was then destroyed and blacks became dark greys. I was so upset that I nearly gave up.

I then stumbled on the RGB color controls that allow one to dramatically intensify the beams. Where the 9300K setting would set the RGB color sliders to around the 50% levels, I cranked them up to 90%. Suddenly, the monitor became a brilliant, beautiful display! It is PERFECT! It is brilliant, color-accurate, and extremely sharp with a perfect black level. Once adjusted, the convergence is perfect throughout and there are no noticeable moire patterns even given the worse dithering. Of the dozens of monitors I've looked at under 1K, this is by FAR the best.

There are two tiny flaws to the screen, both are side effects of the aperture grill and evident on all monitors using that type of mask: one is that there are two very faint horizontal gray lines crossing the screen at the 1/3rd and 2/3rd distance from the top/bottom edge. These are horizontal dampeners that stabilize the aperture grill's vertical elements. These faint lines don't bother me, and compared to LCD dead pixels, they are no big deal for certain. The second imperfection is a barely perceptible pixel shimmer throughout the screen. This is heat-of-expansion-derived kinetic energy transfered to the aperture grill via the electron beam as it passes by (most of the kinetic energy is eliminated by the dampeners already mentioned). The shimmering effect is extremely subtle and is actually difficult to see much less notice during regular use. I don't think anyone would find it distracting.

4-0 out of 5 stars near perfect
The monitor is dazzling. It has near perfect text focus and convergence in all corners even when stretched to the max. Unlike the sony cpd e540, it actually has sharp text at its recommended rez (1600x1200), though it's sharper at 75hz than at 85hz.

UNIFORMITY
It's purity is nearyly perfect, even though I have a huge non-shielded subwoofer about 2 feet from it. It's geometry was near perfect out of the box and is correctlable, if needed, with the multitudinous adjustments. It's text is clear everywhere. Moire is present only in very fine stripe patterns (like those in calibration screens). I don't adjust this unless I have to since text will get very slighlty fuzzy.

COLOR/BRIGHTNESS/CONTRAST
Very good, though very slightly washed (especially blacks) out compared to sony at 1600X1200. At lower rez, it looks much brighter. The contrast/brightness can be increased by increasing the RGB colors (together will result in more white), though increasing it too much (~90) will result in color bleeding.

FLATNESS
Not as flat as sony, but not curved by any means, hence NF (natural flat).

STABILITY
Image stability is great. I've notice that with ANY aperature grill, when looking very close to the screen, a flicker or a moving moire like effect occurs. Shadow mask don't display this. This is just a general note about AG, not the dp2060u. Also, larger monitors show this more than smaller monitors. Perhaps, the filaments quiver ever so slightly. No dancing pixels are noticed at all.

CONTROL EASE
Too many buttons to navigate...but who cares? The image is everthing!

BOTTOM LINE
The best monitor I have owned. My only wish is an absolute flat screen, but no one notices but me. It's rated by displaymate as second only to the sony gdm f520 which costs twice as much!

BTW, I coating is the same type as sony's. If you touch it, it will show irridescent streaks.

This is an awesome monitor! It's exquisite! Before I got it I bought the NEC FP1370. It was terrible (see my review on it). This monitor, although from the same company (NEC Mitsubishi), uses a different technology, DiamondTron, and in fact, the picture is diamond!

Text & Graphics:
I did some research before getting it because it seems that most 21"+ monitors have focus and geometry problems. I am very picky because I need lively graphics colors, correct geometry, and at the same time crisp text. Some people don't care about text because their main purpose is graphics design or playing games. I do that in addition to writing code and reading a lot. Most monitors in this class have some convergence problems, where text looks crisp in some parts and blurry in others, even if the dot pitch is uniform across the grill.

This monitor is ace both at text and graphics. It even has an option where you can optimize it for Text, Normal, or Graphics mode. Text is crystal clear in all areas of the screen, even at very high resolutions.

Configuration & Geometry:
This monitor has more configuration options than any nag-ass might ever want. You can get the geometry almost perfect. The geometry out of the box wasn't correct. The easiest way to fix it is to choose your ideal resolution and refresh rate, apply the auto-correct mode, and start adjusting from there. The screen surface is 100% flat; Mitsubishi calls it Natural Flat (NF), which means the optical image beam is corrected before it hits the screen surface.

Other nice features:
I was impressed with the screen coating. Other monitors, especially Sony, have a smudgy coating. This monitor has a "dry" coating, where you can clean the screen without creating "rainbow smears." It also has a built-in USB hub, and you connect the data cable vertically, so that you can flush the monitor to the wall. The monitor is also remarkably light and has a small footprint. It has almost the same weight as my old 19" Sony monitor. The visual area of the screen is 20", bigger than that of most other 22" or 21" monitors, which is 19.8".

Cons:
The On Screen Menu (OSD) controls are a bit more awkward than other monitors. It also doesn't have BNC connectors, which is a bummer for a monitor of this quality. But the data cable that comes with it is sturdy and isolates EM interference very well.

Conclusion:
If you're looking for a 21" or 22" monitor, with a perfectly flat screen, with a uniform .24mm dot pitch grill, with excellent text, graphics, and geometry, then you should seriously consider this monitor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great monitor if you can foot the bill for it.
This monitor is absolutely wonderful. I upgraded from a (non-flat) Gateway V900 19" monitor that came with my computer when I went off to college. My 2060u had some very slight distortion problems on the bottom part of the monitor, but they were easily fixed using the numerous geometry (distortion) adjustments on the monitor. The picture is fairly bright (not quite as bright as the sony models, brighter than the 21-22" NEC displays) but very crisp (much more so than the sony models). I was able to find it for a decent enough price to make me choose it over the comparable Samsung 1200NF (2060u was...more). I usually run at 1600x1200@85, but I occasionally run it at 1920x1440@75 when I have multiple applications open and need the space. The text (for me) is still readable at that res and I wouldn't say I have extraordinary vision. My only (very small) gripe really has nothing to do with the monitor. My Geforce 2 won't do 2048x1536@75Hz in 32bit color (It will at 16-bit). I recommend popping on over to [a]link to check out the manual and features... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So glad I got this monitor
After debating forever about which monitor to get, I decided on this one. Believe me, it took forever to make a decision. I looked at and read reviews for almost every 19" - 22" CRT monitor out there (ViewSonic, Sony, NEC). The 22" NEC monitors (FE & FP series) were a little out of my price range ($550+). This monitor was around $300 which included the shipping. That was still a little much, but now I realize it was money well spent. I can't begin to tell you how much I love this monitor. When I first connected it and booted up, the picture was way off balance, the corners were blotchy/discolored, i.e. it looked like crap. I was worried until I installed the NaviSet software... everything went uphill from there. You can adjust EVERYTHING with this software... this monitor is nothing without the Naviset software... you must download it from nec-mitsubishi's website. After tweaking the monitor with this software I must say it looks amazing, like nothing I've ever seen. I'm a gamer with a fairly high-end system, so this monitor gives full representation of what my system is capable of... I play counter-strike, battlefield 1942, medal of honor, etc... looks awesome. I highly recommend this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality at an Excellent Price
One day I discovered that my 19" Sony Trinitron FD CPD-E400 was dead and Sony wanted at least [money amount]to repair it, plus S&H there and back. I loved my Trinitron FD, but I thought I'd try to find a replacement for less than getting it fixed. After several DAYS of serious looking, I finally settled on the NEC FP912SB.

After using the monitor for 2 days, I can already tell you that I'd consider the image quality of this monitor to be identical to my old Sony. In fact, I have to give NEC bonus points for their NaViSet software, which allows you to adjust your monitor settings from within Windows. The software will also put up test patterns so you know your settings are right - a very handy feature.

This monitor also has quite a few more display controls than my old Trinitron FD. You can even adjust the color in each of the corners of the screen. I've never seen this before, but it could be helpful when the monitor starts to age.

When I say that the video quality is excellent, I mean it. As a Web Developer/Programmer and I spend ALL of my time at work, and a good portion of my time at home, in front of the PC (probably 65+ hrs/week). I am VERY picky when it comes to image quality because I do a lot of work in Photoshop making images for Web sites, so my colors have to be spot on.

This monitor is a perfectly flat screen, just like the Trinitron FD, as it uses the aperture grille technology (yes it has the two lines).

My only complaint about this monitor is that it is only made in black, no beige to match the rest of my components. This monitor is too good of a value to pass up. That and the fact that the NaViSet software was not included in the box (you have to download) made me give this 4 out of 5 stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars nice picture, but broken
I reviewed this monitor when I first got it and gave it 5 stars. But recently the monitor crapped out. I've only had it for about 4 months. It doesn't turn on, the status light just clicks on and off and won't power on. NEC's warranty states that it will replace your monitor with new or refurbished equipment, so low and behold they told me that they're going to replace my monitor with a refurbished model. Kinda sux. Looks great whenever the monitor actually works.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best monitor
This monitor is top notch, I compared it with the sonys side by side before i bought it and it has better picture quality than sony, as a matter of fact this was best looking monitor in the whole store Fry,s. when i upgrade it will be Mitsubishi forsure there the best.

4-0 out of 5 stars nice but geometry can be tricky
i use a geforce 2 MX video card to play 3D games like max payne and r6 and also stare at it for long hours to do programming. compared with my old 17" micron it is way better. however it is almost impossible to set the monitors display top pin btm pin pin balance correctly, i would prefer they dump all those features.
as for value i dunno as my company pays for it. It also runs cooler than my old monitor.

4-0 out of 5 stars i wish...........

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe your eyes
Just a week ago I read a polarized reviews of this monitor asking myself which opinion to believe. At the end I was stupid enough to make a decision based on the professional look and average high marks. It was a mistake. The screen is realy bad.

I used to order computer hardware for the company I worked in and saw lots of good and bad CRTs. This one looks like a cheep "Business" series of other brands. Terrible moire on the left curable only by 100% h-moire correction, which on the other hand makes it a bit blurry. It looks like you can actualy see the crt mask. Every line is comletely separate. Every black dot has a colored side shades.

Don't beleave your eyes. This screen looks very professional but it's not.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Sharp Looking Monitor.
I bought this monitor partly based on the first review by jce1975. Shipping was awesome, I ordered it at noon on tuesday and received it at 5:15pm on Thursday. Two days! This is a good looking monitor, Black with a very small techno case. Well built too. It is much more compact than the other 19 inch Envision crt that I own. It goes perfect on my desk with my black dell dimension, black keyboard and speakers. I replaced the refurbished 17 inch (E171FPb) LCD flat panel I got from dell that had lousy resolution. Set up was a breeze because I had downloaded the drivers and naviset utility from the NEC site which does not come with the monitor. The only complaint I have is that the shadow mask holes are a bit larger than my Envision and make the picture a bit more grainy than the Envision. However the colors and the color separation are spectacular and superior to the Envision. The picture fills the entire screen is very square and flat and needed almost no adjustment out of the box. The naviset utility is the best I've seen for monitor adjustment.

2-0 out of 5 stars Surprise disappointment from NEC
I purchased this monitor in December 2002, and by December 2003 the picture had turned green. Since that time the color has been on and off. Prior to this failure the color has always been beautiful, but I had hoped it would last longer than a year. I have been working with NEC to get a replacement, but in the end I will have to pay to ship the old monitor back, and they will only give me a refurb to replace my failed monitor. Not sure what to recommend instead.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dream come true!
I had a 17" sony before this and I cant believe my eyes this monitor is fantastic! I tweaked the settings to adjust the screen size (which by the way was very easy to do) and I am just blown away by the picture Im getting. Super sharp text, deep rich color. This is one well made monitor!

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent Value
This monitor seems to be working fine for my G-4 PowerMac. It needed quite a bit of tweaking out of the box but has since performed very nicely.

Good refresh rates (I'm working at 100mhz mostly because I can and because its easier on the eyes) and nice deep colors are the strong points for this monitor (along with the price). On the down side, the aperture grill is a bit more noticeable with this monitor than I'm used to. For high-end graphic designers and hardcore gamers you may want to look into other options. ...
