A high quality panel with lower power requirements
NEC today announced the MultiSync EA274WMi, the newest model to fall under its high-end IT desktop portfolio. The EA274WMi sports a 27-inch IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel with LED backlighting and a 2560x1440 resolution (QHD). Thanks in large part to the LED backlight, NEC says the EA274WMi is able to come in a slim and lighter weight profile with increased power savings compared to previous generation monitors.
Other bullet points include 350cd/m2 brightness; 8-bit color; wide viewing angles (178 degrees); 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (1,000:1 typical); an ergonomic stand with height adjust, tile, swivel, and pivot; DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, and VGA D-sub inputs; integrated 4-port USB hub (1 up/4 down split between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0); and integrated 1W speakers.
Using NEC's ControlSync technology, you can control up to six EA274WMi displays in a multi-monitor configuration, NEC says. You do this by establishing one as a master and then controlling them all in unison through the single monitor.
The NEC EA274WMi will be available this month for $799 MSRP.
