NEC's E231W packs in the features

NEC's E231W packs in features for a relatively low price.

The Features score in CNET's monitor reviews is determined by asking one simple question: "What am I getting for the amount of money I'm paying?"

So, it should come as no surprise that a monitor that offers a lot for $300 would score highly in the Features subrating, and the NEC MultiSync E231W did just that.

First off, the NEC includes the "quadfecta" of ergonomic options, featuring tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment. It also includes a number of useful Eco options we first saw in the NEC MultiSync PA271W's OSD. No to mention an ambient light sensor and tons of preset modes.

Still, including a lot of bells and whistles has no bearing on performance. To find out how the NEC performed, hit this link right here .

The monitor hub will answer all other questions, monitor or otherwise. Well, maybe just monitors.
