NEC MultiSync EA244UHD 24-Inch 4K Monitor Review

Today we're evaluating NEC's new MultiSync EA244UHD, a 24-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor. As part of NEC's EA series, this monitor is intended for high-end desktop users as opposed to professional graphics users, though there are features of the EA244UHD that may tempt potential customers who fall into the latter category. Things that separate this monitor from a traditional desktop display include extras like up to four-way display matrix support (there are multiple inputs for connecting multiple PCs), a ControlSync feature that lets users control the settings for up to half a dozen daisy-chained displays, a high-speed USB 3.0 hub, and a standard warranty that even covers the backlight for the first three years.

The star of the show, of course, is the 10-bit panel. It boasts 99.3 percent coverage of AdobeRGB and 1.07 billion displayable colors, along with wide viewing angles (178 degrees horizontal / 178 degrees vertical)...

This article is about the 4K monitor but all I'm keeping my eyes on is that nice sweet backlit warranty with that USB 3.0. It's like people always say "it's the little things that are usually the most important"

It's a shame there isn't too much news of true 4K monitors launching for content creators to use for both professional work natively in 4K prior to downscaling as well as to game (or consume Ultra HD entertainment).

Kind of strange to make such a small 4k monitor... And charge it at over $1000.. Just my opinion though

Yeah, with this price tag you'd expect it to be >=27" I wonder how it competes with retina display which broke into the market over a year ago... It's nice to see the leap though. 4k is the future for film and tv, it just feels like a long way out.

Was curious to see the specs and all, but based on what I've seen, there are other options I would look at. Much like the other comments, the price tag seems a bit high for a ~24". Also, the fact that they used plastic instead of a metal seems like they cheaped out a little bit on the hardware. Guess I'll keep waiting for a nice 4k.

No doubt many users who seriously game are waiting for upwards of 30" 120 hz or sync uhd displays. Hopefully something like this happens soon in the 21:9 form. I'm itching to play battlefield:hardline and star citizen on a most worthy upgrade say this winter to spring...? Any thoughts from the hardware profits out there?
