Why Has it Scored 70?

our review analysis indicates that it has good expert reviews with an average expert rating of 80%.
This PC monitor is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better PC screens are available.
It has running costs of $130 over 5 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 2,000+ flatpanel monitors that we have calculated running costs for.
This NEC PC monitor has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a built-in speaker
Very wide horizontal viewing angle
Wide connectivity includes displayport, VGA, HDMI and DVI-D inputs
Also available without the color calibration kit
Only 1600 x 1200 pixels resolution
Smaller than average display diagonal

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each PC monitor by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the PC monitor is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec PC monitors come to market, the older PC monitors will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
