    Review NEC EA244WMi

    In the line of the NEC is not only a professional model, but also more affordable in terms of price of the device, for example, a line of MultiSync EA. With a younger model, NEC EA224Wmi, we met at the end of last year, and is now available, and a 24-inch monitor in this series - NEC EA244WMi.


    The model is available in two colors - black and white, have been revised second option. Design in EA244WMi most that neither is a classic, style, NEC recognized at a glance from any distance. Practical rough plastic, clean lines, no new-fangled "frameless design" and glossy surfaces - just superficially no different from working professional models in EA244WMi not observed. By the Way, the same design was also the previous monitor in this range, EA224Wmi._

    Menu control buttons in this model sensory (as well as the power button), located in the lower right corner, with their relatively large - while other manufacturers cost five or even four, with NEC EA224Wmi them as many as seven. To the left of the menu buttons are located two sensors - light and the presence of a user to the monitor adjusts the brightness of the backlight. The monitor is very massive (about 8 kg), so move him almost unreal. Degrees of freedom in the stands enough - the user can rotate the display around a vertical axis, tilt the screen, adjust the height above the surface of the table and converted into vertical mode. Of particular note is quite convenient design legs, allowing it to hide the power cable and video cable. Pin initially attached to the monitor with four screws (buyer do not have to collect), if necessary, it is disconnected and the display is mounted on the wall (with the VESA-compatible mounting). In terms of video inputs is almost complete: DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D and D-sub (not enough unless the MHL, but the connector is still extremely rare). On the side are two USB 2.0 ports and a headphone output. In addition, this model has a built-in speaker 1 W each.

    The menu here is similar to that seen at the NEC EA224Wmi - left / right arrow moves the user through the menu, presented in the form of a horizontal strip of icons partitions and using the up / down - along with the drop-down list with the settings. This principle is a classic for the NEC and from older models is different, by and large, only visually (through the use of translucency and a more modern type of icons). When included in the menu of "hot keys" is possible without calling the main menu to adjust the brightness (left or right arrow) and volume (up and down). Also, using the key switch Eco Eco-mode, and with the help of Input - Video inputs. The first menu item contains the brightness, contrast, and select one of the eco-modes and automatic brightness (or turn them off completely). In "Eco 1" brightness control is limited to within 060% of the maximum value in the "eco 2" - 0-30%. Automatic adjustment can be carried out depending on the ambient light, and the "quantity" is displayed on the screen in white. Here you can configure the monitor go into power-saving mode - how can significantly reduce the level of ambient light, and in the "disappearance" of the user of the detection sensor. The last point in this section of the menu is the DV Mode (Dynamic Visual), which collected six different preset picture modes

    ("Normal", "Text", "Games", etc.).

    In the next menu, Color, is a set of seven different color presets, three of which - sRGB, "Source" and DICOM Sim, adjustments can not be (emulates sRGB, display the original colors of the LCD panel, visualization and simulation of standard medical imaging DICOM) . Modes 1, 2, 3 and 5 differ in the color temperature and allow to manually adjust the red, green and blue separately. In the third menu "Tools", you can change the volume of the integrated speakers, enable the detection signal to activate the function of reducing the response time, adjust the brightness of the LED activity timeout for turning off the monitor for prolonged inactivity and reset the device to factory defaults.

    Next is the setting of the menu - here you can choose the interface language, set the time to close the menu, to enable / disable the use of "hot keys", displaying information about the signal of the sensor, or to save the current settings for fast recovery in the future, etc. Menu item with information about the effectiveness of eco-modes and consumption of carbon is unlikely to be interested in the ordinary home user (even despite the possibility to count these savings in terms of money forces the monitor itself), and the last item displays information about the current connection, and the monitor model and its serial number.


    The monitor uses a 24-inch IPS-matrix with W-LED backlight, with an aspect ratio of 16:10, the "native resolution" of 1920x1200 pixels (pixel size of 0.27 mm) and the stated response time of 5 ms. As in several other models of the last time used in the NEC EA244WMi "light" matte finish - a right angle, it looks only slightly less frosted than usual, but with the increase in angle "gloss" display increases and when it is maximum deviation is practically no different from the usual glossy surface. The advantage of this type of coverage is the almost complete absence of crystalline effect, the downside - is that under certain conditions, on a dark picture to see the vague silhouettes standing behind the user object is still possible.

    This model uses the screen brightness control using PWM, which is why people with sensitive eyes may feel uncomfortable at low brightness caused by flickering light (it is no longer determined by the value of the brightness of 80% or higher, or 220 cd / m 2).

    When you select a point in DV Mode Mode "Movie", "Game" and "Photo" color preset switch to the "Source" and can not be altered, in other cases, the user is free to combine them as he pleases. Gamma adjustment in direct form in the settings of the monitor is not "indirectly" you can change it by using the Black Level - by default it is set to 50%, while it increased gamma curve is reduced, which makes the picture faded, with a decrease - on the contrary, the curve rises up, and the picture becomes too saturated, causing loss of detail in dark areas. To achieve the average range 2.2 we had to lower the black level to 46%, but it increased slightly nonlinear curve - in the dark areas of the image was too saturated with light - too faint. In the end, this option is best left to the value set initially - 50%, while the average gamma value will be slightly underestimated (8.2), but the curve itself is not such a "wavy."

    Color Temperature in the sRGB is only a bit higher than 6500K, 5000K preset to match almost perfect, but with the temperature accuracy "hit" is reduced - so that when you click a preset monitor the actual temperature of 7500K was about 600K above the preset 8200K results measurements showed 9000K, etc.

    In the DV Mode preset "text" increases the gamma value for the contrast of letters in the preset "Invictus" color temperature is slightly lowered, which makes the picture warmish tint, and color is reduced greatly, up to 1.6 - picture is quite bleak, but at the expense of able to show all the detail in the shadows, that, apparently, was the purpose of such a move. In the preset "Games" gamma also reduced, although not as much as in "Invictus" (and in this case it seems more reasonable). Maximum brightness (with parameters "Brightness - 100%, contrast - 50%") of up to 270 cd / m 2, uniformity of illumination in this case was quite average - the spread between the best (lower right) and the least (the central upper part of the screen) bright areas was about 60 cd / m 2. Particularly pleased with the brightness at minimum settings - it does not exceed 7 cd / m 2, so that users working in the dark, will be able to adjust the brightness of the display to your liking without interference.

    In a test of the color accuracy of the results were similar to those which we have received in the survey younger model, EA224Wmi - in the "Normal" preset sRGB color and the average value of the deviation has exceeded 4 (at a rate of not more than one and a half) and the maximum - almost reached 10. This means that some of the colors are not quite as they should, and if desired, it can be seen with the naked eye. After calibration (which we performed for the color preset "3" as the preset sRGB color adjustment available), the situation will improve substantially - a deviation from the norm is left only in black, the rest with a stock "met the standard."

    If you change the viewing angle does not change color rendition, rejecting the horizontal brightness decreases smoothly and fairly significantly, Vertical - first down, with a 'pass' through 45 degrees once again begin to rise. Glow-effect in this model is very moderate, appears when viewed diagonally in the form of low sulfur "exposure" - in this parameter monitor looks better than most of the other models on the IPS-matrix.

    The results

    NEC EA244WMi - representative rather rare nowadays category monitors with a diagonal of 24 "and a 16:10 aspect ratio. This is not the budget level, so the approach to the production of a body there - high-quality swivel stand, and so in this class are not uncommon. Picture Quality After calibration is high enough that it can be used not only in your home entertainment system, but also as a working tool. Disadvantages are not the best indicators of color accuracy at the factory setting, the use of PWM brightness control, and not the lowest bidder. Liked
