    When Are Most New NEC PC Displays Released?

    We couldn't see any obvious pattern in the release dates for new NEC PC displays over the last 3 years.

    May was the biggest month in 2018 for new NEC PC screens, with seven new NEC PC screens released that month. Two new NEC PC displays were released in February 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new NEC LCD screen releases. The biggest month in 2016 for new NEC LCD screen releases was October, with 14 new NEC PC screens released that month.

    .

    How Fast Do NEC PC Screen Prices Drop After Release?

    NEC PC displays tend to depreciate faster than most PC monitors.

    Most PC monitors drop in price by 2% in the first 6 months after release. New NEC flatpanel monitors drop in price by an average of 4% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. That means that on a typical NEC PC screen costing $374 you could save on average $13 by waiting 6 months before buying.
