Why Has it Scored 67?

NEC is a very good PC display brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better PC screens are available.
This PC monitor has running costs of $180 over 5 years, which puts it in the most expensive 10% of all 1,800+ LCD screens that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Big display diagonal
High typical contrast ratio
Public-display-grade panel protects against permanent image retention
Ethernet and rs-232 control and communication allows for ease in remote monitoring
Only 1366 x 768 pixels resolution
Slow response time

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.
