Introduction Rather than go over the same details which Igor discussed in his original review , I’ll go over the monitor review in a little less depth than normal. There are different types of matte and glossy coatings, each of which has its own advantages and drawbacks. Information about the average amount of time, in which the pixels change from one color to another. As it’s evident from the above I’d have preferred a darker luminance setting from this preset as compared with movie and gaming modes, something a little easier on the eye when you have white document backgrounds to work with. There are two USB ports located on the left hand side of the screen, but again sadly these appear as if they were an after though, almost looking like an extra bit has been stuck on to the otherwise quite nicely designed screen. Some people including myself don’t prefer AR coating and especially if it’s lower grade quality.

Right image shows 2x USB ports on the left hand side of the screen. Nevertheless, it’s unlikely you would use the OSD buttons much after the initial setup anyway, and the preset DV modes text, movies etc can be easily accessed through the use of one button if you wish to use them at any point.
” NEC MultiSync 20WGX2 – Specifications
Anyhow, as you may see, my ambient light is pretty much dimmed and just look at that 20WGX2 black uniformity! It’s nice that NEC is giving us the good colours, even for this monitor which essentially is not part of the colour professional 90 series. Information about the average amount of time, in which the pixels change from one color to another.
This is hard to ignore in some cases, and if you plan on playing a lot of darkly lit games then you might want to take this into consideration. The reason why I’m telling you this is because when you activate them, the DFC Digital Fine Contrast engine is kicking in and because the monitor software is dynamically controlling the contrast, gamma and backlight according to the screen content, you may notice the colour banding.
Panel uniformity test Panel uniformity was pretty decent as you can see from the image above showing a black screen in a darkly lit room. From early tests, I can tell that gamut-compressed monitor profiles really do make a difference and such difference is not just pronounced on out-of-gamut colours, but also on boundary colours that are very near or just approached the limits of monitor saturation.

Aspect ratio The ratio between the horizontal and the vertical side of the display. It’s hard to tell.
Colour gradient photo from 20WGX2 It may be a little hard to see from the photograph, but colour gradients on the 20WGX2 were generally pretty good. The storage altitude shows the maximum possible altitude for secure storing of the display.
As such, without professional hardware tools, it would probably be hard to get much better colour accuracy out of the 20WGX2 by using the eye only. Panel bit depth The most widely used panels are those with 6, 8, and 10 bits for each of the RGB components of the pixel.

NEC LCD20WGX2 – Phase 2 Review – TFTCentral
As you may notice, very good stock colour accuracy again and this time even better then with the native white point.
These will allow you to play games at lower resolutions or retain certain aspect mulltisync if WS format is not supported. I have to remind you that monitor is actually “ON” and that black desktop background is in place. The operating humidity shows the acceptable level of humidity, in multisynv the display will function flawlessly.
When the TFT is turned off, there is obvious reflections but once turned on, these become much less obvious. Information about the number of pixels on the horizontal and vertical side of the screen. Texture blur was also at a minimum. Height Multtisync height of the display.
Also, when the screen is off it’s much more reflective.
I could easily spot and differentiate the RGB 3,3,3 and 4,4,4 black point I wanted to take a closer look at the use of this panel coating leading on from my observations during gaming. There was no noticeable issues here with unevenness of backlight bleed. The lower the better in terms of colour accuracy. Additionally, you have maximum achievable white point with delta values when compared to the target settings 20wwgx2, minimum black point and contrast ratio with the desired calibration option or 200wgx2 with the default measurement without the calibration.
The only slight issue is regards to black depth however as darker tones are not quite up to matching VA variant panels as the measurements show.
For the desktop or any other “static” usage you really don’t have to use them. Colour vibrancy was again impressive thanks to OptiClear.
Storing it above this limit may result in damaging the display. Pixel pitch The pixel pitch shows the distance from the centers of two neighboring pixels.
In practice there have already been some good tests of this screen for gaming in our previous reviewbut testing the screen in GTA San Andreas showed positive results with no obvious ghosting evident.
Regarding reflections, I would say that any nearby window, with the “controllable” ambient light blinds or curtains shouldn’t be a problem.
