NEC is a well-known purveyor of quality displays for business, digital imaging and medical professionals. The company has a new member in its Multisync lineup, the EA245WMi, a 24" model with super-thin bezels targeted at professionals requiring dual and triple-monitor setups.
Those bezels are this monitor's claim to fame. NEC says the left and right bezels are only 0.9 mm thick, while the top bezel is a hair thinner at 0.8 mm. While the product shot make us wonder about those measurements, we'll take NEC's claims at face value.
The display has a resolution of 1920x1200, which works out to a 16:10 aspect ratio. The EA245WMi makes it easy to create multi-monitor setups, since it includes both input and output DisplayPort 1.2 connectors for daisy-chaining multiple displays together. Those ports are complemented by HDMI 2.0, DVI-D and VGA inputs. There's a 3-port USB hub and a couple of 1W speakers on tap, too.
The panel technology is 8-bit AH-IPS. NEC says the monitor should cover 100% of the sRGB color space, with a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio and brightness of 300 cd/m². The EA245WMi also offers uniformity correction and automatic brightness adjusment. A height-adjustable stand and a VESA mount round out the main specifications. Users looking to control up to six screens can make use of NEC's ControlSync technology to change settings on multiple monitors simultaneously.
The NEC Multisync EA245WMi will be available soon for $399. The monitor will also be available bundled with a SpectraViewII EA color calibration kit for $549.
