NEC announces MultiSync EX231Wp display

NEC is back with a spanking new monitor for the masses, where it will be known as the NEC MultiSync EX231Wp. This is a 23″ model, where it will also have a sibling already in ready form via the 23″ TN panel MultiSync EX231W. Being sleek in design, this desktop monitor will deliver a premium-grade, performance-driven PVA panel which paves the way for an increased viewing angle, sharp contrast ratio and ease in transporting between different locations. In fact, some might even tout this to be the ideal solution for multiple monitor setups, as the MultiSync EX231Wp was specifically designed for financial and corporate environments, business users on-the-go, small-scale digital signage, small-to-medium-sized business client meetings and presentations in mind. Boasting of a true blue minimalist design, the new MultiSync EX231Wp features an ultra-thin bezel width of 14.6mm, a depth of 14.2mm, while tipping the scales at 9.3 pounds with its stand. As for its LED backlighting technology, that would enable the MultiSync EX231Wp to sip a mere 27W of juice, directly making it one of the most power-efficient desktops in its size category. Apart from that, there is also the quick-release button that allows one to remove its stand, while letting you achieve a simple setup process with the photo-frame stand as an optional accessory. Other hardware specifications concerning the PVA panel include full high-definition resolution support, a high contrast ratio (3000:1 typical, 25,000:1 dynamic), excellent viewing angles (178° vertical, 178° horizontal) and minimized color shift which results in crisp text, bright colors and pure imagery. Not only that, the MultiSync EX231Wp is smart enough to know whether there is a human in front of it thanks to the included human sensor, where it will detect user activity in front of the monitor while reducing its power up to 94% with inactivity in the process. You will, of course, be able to adjust the inactivity length and sensor settings according to your whim and fancy. The MultiSync EX231Wp will interestingly enough, ship with a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty, where it will hit the streets sometime this July for $319. Press Release ]]>
