Mitsubishi DiamondPoint NX76LCD
This monitor is one of the most widespread and popular 17” models from NEC-Mitsubishi (we have already reviewed its analog – NEC’s LCD1760NX – on our site). This model looks bulky and clumsy due to its large case and angular outline. It seems to be constructed of parallelepipeds with only the four corners rounded up a little.
Mitsubishi isn’t into bright colors. Its monitors come out either white or black and we’ve got the former variant. The silvery front panel is not smooth but rough to the touch. The rest of the monitor is white (not the glossy white of the LG L1740B, but a lusterless white which doesn’t hurt your eyes).
When viewed from aside, the base seems as large and angular as the monitor’s case. It permits to change the height and tilt of the screen, but doesn’t offer the portrait mode.
The monitor is equipped with an analog and a digital input. The power adapter is integrated into the case.
The control buttons are placed at the bottom right of the front panel. The buttons are small but easy to work with. The number of the buttons is rather astonishing. You usually have four, five or six buttons while there are seven of them here! Well, the Reset button is not of much use in the menu.
The monitor’s menu is the typical menu of the previous generation of LCD monitors from NEC-Mitsubishi (it looks different in the new generation, like in the LCD1770NX or the NX77LCD). It is user-friendly and functional; it offers the typical selection of settings, save for the color temperature settings (the user can usually select from two or three factory settings plus one user-defined setting, but here you have six variants to choose from, four of which are adjustable).
