What customers say about "Key Specs"
NEC PA242W Monitor
  • The 24-inch wide PA242W monitor is individually colour calibrated at the factory.
  • With a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels I have a lot of workspace.
  • The 24-inch display boasts a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels, making it well suited to running multiple programs and windows side-by-side.
  • Great resolution for running two or bigger programs at once.
  • This monitor is nothing special, but there are a lot of cheaper 24" monitors.
NEC PA243W Monitor
  • The monitor is a 24.1” AH-IPS panel with a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 allowing to have multiple tabs at once.
  • Only a 24” panel, but once you see the performance you’ll get from it, the size won't bother you anymore.
  • 1920 x 1200 (16:10) resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, and 8ms response time is pretty decent characteristics.
  • The NEC PA243W sports the now rare 1920 x 1200 resolution, which i dislike as software can not support this resolution.
  • The only jarring thing about the NEC PA243W is its hefty price tag which can buy you a 4K monitor.
