I have a 17" NEC flat panel display. Is there a big difference between that one and the 17" apple?
A little more information would help , NEC make a lot of screens, some bad, some good.
Right...sorry bout that.
i haven't used your LCD, but i can tell you that all the apple displays are simply amazing. we have both apple and nec/samsung displays at school, and the apple ones are just better.
I agree. i have two samsung 192N 19" LCDS, which in my opinion were the best looking PC lcds around (they're the same as the Dell UltraSharp 1900FP)
But by comparison, the apple displays really are more crisp. The viewing angle is supposedly better on the apple's too, but the samsungs are great anyway.
If you shop around, you can get a good deal.
3 x Samsung 192N @ $650 = $1950 (still as much as the 23" apple, and a ton more screen area)
I love Apple's displays, but as opposed to their computers, I can't justify the extra cost. 17", maybe 19", is the size I need, but Apple just isn't competitive in those markets.
i never used your LCD, but i am using the old MultiSyns LCD1530v. and it's been almost 3 yrs old and still going great. no dead pixel, no ghosting, wide view angle, etc etc.. anything i might expect from an LCD. colors are sharp too. and i'm sure newer NECs are even better. the only other LCD makers i'd take aside from apple would be ForMac, NEC, or Samsung.
I have 2 NEC 1810X 18" LCD's, they are 2-3 years old now but are still looking good, colours are crisp, nice and bright. The newer 1810SX's are even better and with a tiny bezel.
Check out that bezel! I tell you, 6 of them together (3 on the top, 3 bottom) looks fantastic!
That is a nice size bezel D) for using multiple displays...
I don't own the NEC 1715, but I saw it the other day at a Sam's Club, of all places. This leads me to believe that it is being discontinued -- though I don't really know.
The price certainly seemed right -- and the NECs have a pretty good reputation. They also carry the 19" model for under $600.
I wouldn't really compare it to the Apple, though. For one thing, the Apple display costs almost double (which is a shame). I would think the Apple would be a better display -- but being so damn expensive . . .
What I would like is a nice 19-20" cinema display from Apple for under $1000! (In my dreams, I guess.)
