NEC MultiSync LCD2470WVX

One letter is added to the model name. What does it mean? V usually stands for Value, yet the monitor belongs to the MultiSync rather than AccuSync series.

The specs make it all clear: just one letter of difference, but we’ve got an RTC-less TN matrix instead of PVA. That’s why the LCD2470WVX is closer to the above-discussed AccuSync LCD24WMCX especially as the two models have similar retail prices.

The exterior design is identical to the LCD2470WNX: a large bulky case, a silvery front panel, and a black stand.

The stand permits you to adjust the tilt and height (from 75 to 185cm) of the screen and pivot it into portrait mode. The default stand can be replaced with a standard VESA mount.

The monitor’s got analog and digital inputs. There are no additional video inputs here.

The control buttons are placed below the front panel just as on the LCD2470WNX. The joystick works perfectly in this monitor, too.

The menu is standard for the MultiSync series. It is rather user-friendly and also pretty. Quick access is provided to the brightness and contrast settings, to switching between the inputs, and to choosing a DV Mode.

The monitor has 100% brightness and 50% contrast by default. I lowered both to 20% to achieve a 100nit white. You should not increase the contrast above 50% as it makes light halftones indistinguishable from white. The monitor regulates its brightness by means of power modulation of the backlight lamps at a frequency of 226Hz.
