NEC Mitsubishi

NEC-Mitsubishi is one of the most conservative players in the LCD sector. Fortunately, they had quite a bit to show off this year on the show floor (coincidently, they were also the only LCD player actually on the floor). Undoubtedly, the NEC 1760NX was one of the more successful 17" LCDs of 2002 with the AUO 16ms panel. NEC's MultiSync 2080UX is now one of the company's more popular units, particularly since it is one of the most cost-effective 20" LCDs available and is capable of 1600x1200.

Unfortunately, there were no samples on the floor, but NEC is improving on the 2080UX in the same way Dell improved on the 2000FP by incorporating the LG Philips LCD LM201U04 panel. The new 2080UX+ will be capable of 16ms response times and the Super-IPS display mode.

Also announced at the show was the 2180UX, which uses a different panel than the 2080UX in order to squeeze in that extra 0.9" of display. Unfortunately, this display does not run on 16ms technology, but is capable of 1600x1200 natively. Unfortunately, since there are not a lot of folks making 21" LCDs, this monitor will probably be somewhat cost prohibitive. Don't forget to check out our Samsung 213T analysis later this week.

After Sony pulls the Trinitron product line next year, NEC-Mitsubishi will be one of the last companies that still produces CRT monitors. We were under the impression that NEC-Mitsubishi still has quite a strong market for the CRT with gamers and graphics designers. On the show floor, we got the opportunity to see the newer Diamond Pro 2070 SB, which incorporates a new technology to enhance color reproduction. The image on the left is the traditional 2070 22" CRT, and the one on the right is the new enhanced color model. The difference is quite noticeable.

    Kris,

    Cool. Look for a bunch of old guys in wife-beaters, drunk and with AVN passes around their necks touting the worlds-greatest new killer app.

    My company's image is very important to me. As the founder, I'd have it no other way.

    oops, never mind, I see it's been changed to AGP and PCI, now.

    I'm still hoping someone can tell me how they managed to have two AGP cards in a single system? Reply

    Kris,

    I really hope that last comment you said about the CES is true. I'm planning on going this year. Do you or you collegues plan on going this coming year and doing an article?

    most monitors are 8 bit, only the AUO 16ms panel is 6 bit. The LG Philips and Samsung 16 and 12ms panels are 8bit. Sharp is working on 10bit panels by the end of the year.

    Humm, I'm a bit depressed to see yet another monitor company leave the CRT space; I'm still not ready for LCDs financially, and I'm still iffy on their features considering the 6bit and pixel response times(I mean we're just now at 16ms, which is barely acceptable in my book since that's nessisary for 60fps). I hope NEC stays in the game a bit longer, otherwise I'm going to have to start hording CRTs(although the current Samsung 757MB I use will last for quite some time I'm sure). Reply

    LG Philips is doing first runs on its 19" 16ms S-IPS panel. I will have to try to check with NEC concerning that panel.

    I know NEC has had a lot of quantity issues. They dont have a huge production capability and they probably wont be able to persue it much longer.

    Nec said they will use a proprietary S-IPS panel for the 1980SX successor. :\

    LG.Philips already make a 19'' 25ms S-IPS panel used in the LG L1910B model.
    But the pro model L1910P has a Fujitsu MVA.
    Someone say that maybe they still have production quantity problem (?)
