We checked 125 owner and expert reviews for NEC flatpanel monitors and found that on average NEC has excellent reviews compared to other brands. We also found that NEC has excellent reviews specifically for its medium monitors.

Robust

One NEC MultiSync EA273 reviewer mentioned that the NEC MultiSync EA273 was well made.

Good Product Quality

One NEC MultiSync EA273 owner who bought it reckoned that it was good quality. Macworld.co.uk said “Good viewing angles, excellent colour uniformity, plenty of contrast, solid build quality, display rotates” in their review but despite that they gave it a score of 3 stars.

Four Upstream Ports

Chart Edit

This LCD screen has an LED display type, which is the most commonly found display type on medium monitors that came out around the same time as it.

Unlike most of the other PC screens that have been available for more than two years which do not have a built-in speaker, the MultiSync EA273 has a built-in speaker.

We compared this PC display to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus PB278[plb_2390121_price], the Benq BL2710[plb_1729060_price], and the NEC MultiSync EA244WMI[plb_1581225_price] is also worth considering.
