"Attractively priced LCD monitors can now be found in impressive screen sizes. But above the cheap and cheerful monitors we regularly see in our Charts test, such as the Chimei and Hanns-G budget models, there stands the premium brands. Designed for graphics and video professionals, or someone who wants a taste of more natural quality, expect to see brands such as Samsung, LG and NEC in the list."
"Image quality is not in the top class for professional users, and power consumption figures not exactly class-leading. While there's no intrinsic technology inside to make the NEC MultiSync EA261WM especially power efficient, other than a mode buried in the setup menu to reduce screen brightness, the EA261WM performs as we'd expect of a high-quality TN LCD display."
