+9 More reasons for
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years, the EA224WMi has a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper LCD screens such as the LG 25UM65 (£199.99), or the AOC I2757F (£199.96).
We compared this PC display to all the other LCD screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq GW2760 (£159.99) is also worth considering.
Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
The narrowest horizontal viewing angle of LCD screens that are a similar age to the EA224WMi is 60° and the widest is 180°. The NEC EA224WMi has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (178 degrees) amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age.
Fairly Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
At 178 degrees, the EA224WMi has a quite wide vertical viewing angle compared to most of the other PC screens of a comparable type and age to the EA224WMi. The average vertical viewing angle of flatpanel monitors of this spec and age is 170°, and the vertical viewing angles range from 50° to 180°.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This PC screen has a graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080), which is typical of many similar spec PC screens that have been available for around the same time as it.
Very Low Maximum Power Consumption
Across all the PC screens of a comparable type and age to the EA224WMi the maximum power consumptions range from 5.4W to 250W, and the average maximum power consumption is 54W. The NEC EA224WMi has one of the lower maximum power consumptions (only 26 Watts) amongst medium monitors of this age.
Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption
PC screens of this age and spec have annual energy consumptions of between 0.02kWh and 100kWh. With an annual energy consumption of only 32 kilowatt hours, the EA224WMi has one of the lower annual energy consumptions amongst medium monitors of this age.
The widths of PC monitors of a similar age and spec to the EA224WMi range from 220mm to 5,200mm. With a width of only 507.4 millimeters, the EA224WMi is one of the narrower flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago amongst flatpanel monitors of this age.
Alternative PC displays with a wider width that you might want to look at include the AOC I2757F (£199.96) (622mm and cheaper).
The EA224WMi is one of the shorter medium monitors that are a comparable age to the EA224WMi (only 301.1 millimeters) amongst flatpanel monitors of this age. Medium monitors that were released more than two years ago have heights of between 41mm and 4,800mm, and the average height is 380mm.
9 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The EA224WMi is not 3D compatible. Most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.
PC displays which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the Benq XL2420 (£199.99) which also has a higher Rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The NEC EA224WMi does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other PC screens of this type and age also do not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The NEC EA224WMi does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other PC screens of this age and spec also do not have an integrated card reader.
Only 25000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The EA224WMi has a maximum contrast ratio of 25000:1. That's 100% less contrast ratio than a 20000000:1 flatpanel monitor, which is the most common contrast ratio. The best contrast ratio of all LCD screens of this type and age is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
If the contrast ratio of this PC screen is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the XB2483HSU (£169.55) (5000000:1), or the XB2783HSU (£185.89) (5000000:1) both from iiyama or the DELL U2412M (£156.00) (2000000:1).
+6 More reasons against
Only HD HD Type
This flatpanel monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many medium monitors that have been around for a similar time to it.
Only Has Three Cables Included
The NEC EA224WMi has a greater number of cables included than most PC monitors of this age and type. The most frequently found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this NEC PC display. The cables included DVI, USB and VGA are also found on this flatpanel monitor.
Quite Small Display Diagonal
The average display diagonal of medium monitors that came out around the same time as the EA224WMi is 63cm. With a display diagonal of only 54.61 centimeters, the NEC EA224WMi has a fairly small display diagonal compared to most of the other comparable spec PC displays that have been around for a similar time to the EA224WMi.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This PC display has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Slow Response Time
The NEC EA224WMi has a fairly slow response time (14 milliseconds) compared to most of the other LCD screens that are a comparable age to the EA224WMi. The fastest response time of PC monitors that were launched around the same time as the EA224WMi is 1ms and the slowest is 69ms.
3 Other reasons to consider the NEC EA224WMi
Running Costs Are OK
The energy efficiency rating of this PC display is B, and the EA224WMi is typical compared to the other 795 LCD screens of a similar spec and age that we have analysed for 5 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 5 year running cost of the EA224WMi is £45.
Released Over Four Years Ago
It was over four years ago when NEC released the EA224WMi.
1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This LCD screen has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on PC monitors of this type and age.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other PC screens that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including the Samsung S27D590 which is cheaper.
If the display resolution of this PC screen is not many enough for you then you might also want to look at the Eizo ColorEdge CX240 (£164.62) (1920 x 1200) which is also higher rated.
