So... I came across a couple of NEC 26" monitors on ebay and hoped they'd go cheap, but they didn't - one went for £265 and the other for £275. All things considered, they retail near enough £1,000 so the price wasn't bad at all. So I put in an impulsive search for 25.5 monitor and found a bulk listing of five NEC 26-inch "medical" monitors for £450. Curious, I did a product search as I'd never heard of these monitors before, and I found that NEC do a series of monitors which are specifically targeted for the medical market, and they have the designation MD (or MDView). Long story short, they are essentially rebadged units from their other professional product lines, which means they will have the same ultra high quality CCFL-backlit, wide-gamut H-IPS goodness. I asked the ebay seller if he would be willing to split the listing and sell me just one monitor, and he did - for £100 plus £15 for delivery - and now it is on my desk. The picture quality utterly destroys my Dell 2007WFP (also IPS), and the OSD confirms that this is in fact a NEC Multisync LCD2690WUXi which has a now-rare incarnation of IPS that uses an A-TW polarizer to reduce black glow. Furthermore, this model retailed at £800-ish only a few years ago. My one is dated 2010. What a find! Is anybody interested? As for trusting the seller - the company I bought the monitor from is a highly reputed and successful asset resale business. Sorry for the crap pics... compact camera in low light.
