This and the horrible color gamut number means that this NEC is likely some VALUE DEVICE that most of us should avoid. By spec alone I would not bother with it.
PS. Sorry but I'll leave definitions of color gamut to others and google.
Can anyone give me buying advice on the two monitors.
Both of them are similarly priced. However I have not been able to see the display quality of either of them physically (not available in the local market).
The NEC one is IPS panel but I have heard that it lacks the flagship quality of NEC. So I am a little confused whether to buy a prominent model of Dell or an entry level model of NEC.
