NEC MultiSync LCD1760NX

NEC’s NX range specialises in offering high-quality flat-panels that aren’t going to stretch the finances. The $1179 LCD1760NX is a case in point. It’s surprisingly good value in light of its expansive 17-inch viewing area.

The list of specifications such as the 450:1 contrast ratio, 1280x1024 resolution support and 260cd/m2 brightness rating place it very much at the top of the chart. A DVI (digital visual interface) connector is included alongside the standard RGB, although there are no onboard speakers or USB ports.

Not everything is as perfect as it seems, however. The over-fussy menu system, for example, takes some getting used to. The menu tended to pop up onscreen for no apparent reason -- a particular irritation if you’re concentrating on a complicated spreadsheet at the time. The viewing angle -- which, on paper, is a more-than-reasonable 160 degrees -- is also a problem. Unless you’re standing directly in front of the screen, image quality degrades very quickly.

There are plenty of tools for adjusting the LCD1760NX’s image quality, but no matter what we did the screen always felt bright and breezy rather than dark and intense. This won’t necessarily count against the NEC, however, and it’s very easy to see the detail in intricate images.

The sharp text output will appeal to office workers, although after you’ve been staring at the screen for a few hours you may find its bright image increasingly grating. Our experience with the LCD1760NX improved with time, though, and if you use the flat-panel day in and day out you’ll quickly grow to like (if not exactly love) the cheerful colour palette.

NEC MultiSync LCD1760NX
While it offers the same picture size for the identical price of the CTX PV722i, not everybody will find the viewing angle or colour palette of the LCD1760NX to their tastes. Our search for a virtually flawless but beautifully priced 17-inch flat-panel has yet to reach a conclusion.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
