NEC Ships 25.5-inch Professional LCD
NEC is now shipping its latest professional LCD 2690WUXi display. The rather oddball 25.5-inch panel is targeted strictly at professionals, though the most hardcore of gamers may also be interested in its 7ms response time (thatís gray-to-gray, mind you, itíll be 13ms with 7 white/black, 6 black/white). Other specs include an 800:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m≤, resolution of 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz, and DVI-I+DVI-D+VGA.
What sets this LCD apart from the rest of the mainstream is its 12-bit gamma lookup table (LUT), which allows the monitor to display 16.7 million colors out of a palette of 68.5 billion, giving it the ability to cover 92% of Adobe RGB space. This makes it quite attractive for color sensitive applications, such as photography, CAD, medicine and scientific research.
Yes, this is one damn sweet looking monitor, especially since I'd like to get more into Photoshop and dealing with RAW photos. But ouch, the $2000 kind of kills that ambition.
