NEC LCD2490WUXi2 Japan
NEC today improved its longstanding MultiSync 90 series displays with a low-key update to its core 24-inch model. The LCD2490WUXi2 improves on the original WUXi with a newer 12-bit color lookup table that improves the visible gamut as well as general improvements to color brightness and stability. It continues to offer a 1,000:1 static contrast ratio and musters 320cd/m2 brightness.
Connections are still simple with HDCP-encrypted DVI and VGA as the input options. Like earlier models, it's designed with color calibration in mind and swivels 90 degrees for its portrait mode. Japan will get the LCD2490WUXi2 on June 3rd for the equivalent of $1,431. A North American release is presumed but hasn't been mentioned to date. [via Impress]
