7 Reasons For

NEC Has Excellent Reviews for Its LCD Screens

PC displays from NEC have an average rating of 91 out of 100, which is in the top 1% of all flatpanel monitor manufacturers that we have looked at.

LED Display Type

This PC display has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on PC screens of this age and type.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens that have an LED Display and we think a cheaper PC display such as the Samsung SMT-1930 ($277.31) or you might consider a better rated PC display such as the Philips 19B4 ($146.99) are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The MultiSync E171 has a built-in speaker, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec PC screens that were launched more than two years ago do not have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative LCD screens with a built-in speaker currently available including the iiyama B1980SD, or the Asus VB199 ($102.99) which has better reviews; or the Edge10 C185k which is cheaper.

1280 X 1024 (SXGA) Graphics Resolution

This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 720 x 400|800 x 600 (SVGA)|832 x 624|1024 x 768 (XGA)|1152 x 864 (XGA+)|1152 x 870|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1280 x 960, which is typical of many small monitors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle

With a vertical viewing angle of 170 degrees, the MultiSync E171 has a quite wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other small monitors that have been around for around the same time as the MultiSync E171. The narrowest vertical viewing angle of similar spec PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the MultiSync E171 is 40° and the widest is 180°.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the small monitors that came out more than two years ago the widths range from 100mm to 750mm. With a width of only 368 millimeters, the MultiSync E171 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other PC monitors of a comparable type and age to the MultiSync E171.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 368mm wide flatpanel monitors currently available including because of it's better review score, the NEC MultiSync LCD175.

PC screens with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the Philips 17S4 ($113.99) (367mm) which is also cheaper.
