NEC MultiSync 90GX2
The outward appearance of the MultiSync 90GX2 is very much alike to the 1970GX: it has a similar-looking silver-and-black case, which is large but has smoothed-out corners unlike NEC’s older models. Like the previous model, this one uses a glossy-coated matrix.
The side view hasn’t changed much, though. The back panel of the case is totally rounded and the stand has been simplified. It now only allows changing the tilt of the screen. The height of the screen remains constant at 95 millimeters above the desk surface.
The monitor has analog and digital inputs, and a 4-port USB hub. The power adapter is integrated into the case.
The controls are the same as in the previous model: a 4-position joystick and four buttons, including a Power button (the Reset button is but rarely used in the menu, but instead works as a switch between the DV Modes).
Talking about DV Mode, sometimes this feature is wrongly considered as an equivalent to the brightness/contrast presets in other manufacturers’ monitors. The difference is that DV Mode affects the gamma compensation value rather than the brightness setting, which results in a lighter or higher-contrast image. This function is meant for movies and games, but not for work. Changing the gamma correction distorts the reproduction of colors up to a total loss of the darkest or lightest image tones.
The monitor’s menu doesn’t differ much from the previous model’s.
