The NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV is a 26in widescreen LCD monitor, the largest in NEC's 90 series of professional displays. The NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV includes a bundled colourimeter, a programmable 12bit colour lookup table for smooth colour transitions and gradients, the ability to display up to 94 percent of the Adobe RGB colour space, and X-light Pro technology to keep brightness and colour consistent over the life of the display.

The NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV is a 26in widescreen LCD monitor, the largest in NEC's 90 series of professional displays.

And though the NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV also carries a high-end price tag, this feature-packed display should appeal to colour-savvy professionals.

The NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV sports a simple but elegant design with a thin black bezel - helpful if you need to position two or more displays together in a relatively seamless array. The NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV's menu system is easy to follow, and the on screen descriptions that appear just above the navigation buttons whenever you touch them make things even easier.

Seeing eye-to-eye with this display should be no problem; you can adjust its height, tilt it forward and back, and even rotate the NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV into a portrait orientation.

For professional photographers and designers, accurate colour is a necessity. Though this big, bright 26-inch display costs a pretty penny, its colour calibration features - as well as for managing backlight and colour consistency over time - make the NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXiSV a tool all serious color geeks should consider. www.macworld.com
