IPS panel, preferably with 99.3 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color spectrum and 100 percent of the sRGB stuff. What's that -- you'd also like more headroom than what these silly new 16:9 ratio displays can give you -- yup, the PA241W has you covered with 1200 pixels of vertical workspace as well. A solid 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 360 nits of brightness, 8ms response time and 178-degree viewing angles flesh out the spec sheet, while a tilt-and-swivel ergonomic stand, USB hub and DisplayPort connectivity figure as the predictable extras. Less foreseeable is the generous 4-year parts and labor warranty, but then you'd want nothing less when splashing a cool $1,079 on a monitor. NEC is ready to ship it to you today, but if you're feeling in a thrifty mood we'd suggest also checking out Dell's competing model, which offers a similar spec at a much lower price point.
