10 Reasons For
NEC Has Excellent PC Screen Reviews
On average NEC medium monitors have excellent reviews as do all PC displays manufactured by NEC.
Four Upstream Ports
The NEC MultiSync EA273 has more upstream ports than most of the medium monitors that have been around for more than two years. Most of the comparable spec PC displays that have been available for a similar time to the MultiSync EA273 only have between one and three upstream ports, however this PC display has four upstream ports.
LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many flatpanel monitors of this age and spec.
There are a number of other flatpanel monitors that have an LED Display currently available which you might want to consider including the S27A850, or the U28D590D (£389.99) both from Samsung which has a better Rating; or the LG 29UM65 (£301.88) which is cheaper.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The MultiSync EA273 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec LCD screens that have been on the market for around the same time as the MultiSync EA273 also have a built-in speaker.
We compared this PC display to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Samsung T22C350 which is cheaper; or the Benq BL2710 (£336.53), and the Fujitsu P24W-7 (£378.71) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
Has One Cable Included
The number of cables included found on the NEC MultiSync EA273 is more than most medium monitors that have been on the market for a similar time to it. The most commonly found cable included is AC, but this cable included is not found on this NEC PC display. The cables included AC|DisplayPort|USB are also found on this PC screen.
Very Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle
When compared to other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago, the MultiSync EA273's horizontal viewing angle of 178 degrees is one of the widest. Across all the PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the MultiSync EA273 the horizontal viewing angles range from 60° to 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 170°.
+5 More reasons for
Very Wide Vertical Viewing Angle
Medium monitors that have been around for more than two years have vertical viewing angles of between 50° and 180°, and the average vertical viewing angle is 170°. When compared to other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago, the NEC MultiSync EA273's vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees is one of the widest.
Five USB 2.0 Ports
The MultiSync EA273 is a five USB 2.0 port LCD screen.
Quite Big Display Diagonal
Across all the similar spec PC displays that have been around for a comparable time to the MultiSync EA273 the screen sizes range from 28cm to 770cm, and the average display diagonal is 63cm. At 68.6 centimeters, the MultiSync EA273 has a quite big display diagonal compared to most of the other PC displays of a comparable spec and age to the MultiSync EA273.
1920 X 1080 (HD 1080) Graphics Resolution
This flatpanel monitor has a graphics resolution of 832 x 624|1024 x 768 (XGA)|1152 x 864 (XGA+)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)|640 x 480 (VGA)|800 x 600 (SVGA), which is the most frequently found graphics resolution on medium monitors that have been available for more than two years.
10 Reasons Against
Only One USB Type-A Downstream Port
The MultiSync EA273 is a one USB Type-A downstream port PC screen. Most of the other LCD screens of this spec and age have between one and five USB Type-A downstream ports.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other medium monitors that have been around for more than two years, the MultiSync EA273 is not 3D compatible.
The MultiSync EA273 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium monitors that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC screen and we think the 272P4 (£426.48), or the 231C5 both from Philips or the Acer DA220 (£373.92) is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The MultiSync EA273 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other medium monitors that came out around the same time as the MultiSync EA273 also do not have an integrated card reader.
We think you might also be interested in other PC displays which also have an integrated card reader including the Acer DA220 (£373.92), or the DELL U2713H (£399.00).
+7 More reasons against
Only 25000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The highest contrast ratio of the MultiSync EA273 is 25000:1. That's 100% less contrast ratio than a 20000000:1 PC screen, which is the most common contrast ratio. Across all medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years the best contrast ratio is 100000000:1 and the worst is Mega Contrast.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative LCD screens that have a 25000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including the NEC MultiSync EA244WMI (£336.02) which has a better Rating.
If you want a PC screen with a higher contrast ratio then you might also want to consider the Lenovo LT2452p (1000000:1 and cheaper); or the U2713H (£399.00) (2000000:1 and higher rated), or the U2913WM (£327.28) (2000000:1 and higher rated) both from DELL.
Not Cheap Compared to Other Medium Monitors That Have Been Around for More Than Two Years
The price range of medium monitors that have been around for more than two years is from £41 to £8,760. We thought that this PC display looks expensive for a PC display of a similar age and type.
Only HD HD Type
This flatpanel monitor has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many comparable spec PC screens that have been available for more than two years.
Very Low RMS Rated Audio Power
The RMS rated audio powers of medium monitors that have been available for more than two years range from 0.5W to 49W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.1W. At only 2 Watts, the NEC MultiSync EA273 has a quite low RMS rated audio power compared to most of the other medium monitors that were released more than two years ago.
Only 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio
This flatpanel monitor has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio, which is the most commonly found typical contrast ratio on medium monitors that have been on the market for more than two years.
Quite Dim Display Brightness
The dimmest display brightness of medium monitors that are a similar age to the MultiSync EA273 is 30 cd/m² and the brightest is 1,700 cd/m². With a display brightness of only 250 candellas per square meter, the MultiSync EA273 has a quite dim display brightness compared to most of the other PC screens of a comparable spec and age to the MultiSync EA273.
3 Other reasons to consider the NEC MultiSync EA273
OK Running Costs
This PC screen is rated A for energy efficiency. The MultiSync EA273 has an average running cost of £47 over 5 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 795 medium monitors that have been around for more than two years.
Released Over Three Years Ago
NEC released the MultiSync EA273 over three years ago.
1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on LCD screens of a comparable age and type to it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC monitors that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available including a cheaper flatpanel monitor such as the 2255W, or the Terra 2255W (£155.38) both from Wortmann AG or you might consider a higher scoring flatpanel monitor such as the Eizo ColorEdge CS230 (£426.99).
