NEC have announced a professional-quality LCD monitor, the 22-inch MultiSync P221W. Intended for use in color-critical environments, the P221W has a 1680 x 1050 native resolution, 96-percent AdobeRGB color gamut, AmbiBright automatic brightness adjustment and 1,000:1 contrast ratio. It also works with NEC's new SpectraView color calibration kit.
NEC's LaVie Light netbook hurt my eyes (and delicate sensibilities) when I first saw it, and this hands-on photoset from Engadget Chinese does nothing to change my opinion. Despite reassurances that it's really just the thickness of the netbook that loses it aesthetics-points, it still has to be one of the ugliest designs for a companion device we've seen this year.
Take what appears to be plastic and case design left-over from an old VHS cassette, slap in a cheap looking keyboard and infuriating mouse, and then weep - yes, weep - to have designed the latest, tragic addition to the 8.9-inch netbook market. What makes this particular model, the LaVie Light, even worse is that it's the handiwork of NEC, a company whom while we may not associate with high design, at least hasn't resorted to insulting our eyes in the past.
If you're still into all of that Sanrio stuff and think you can never have one to many Hello Kitty things, then this NEC notebook is the perfect addition to your collection. While only available in Japan, this notebook is sure to be a big hit with girls.

Newly announced is a NEC professional-grade 82-inch LCD display for corporate and digital signage application.

Your Wireless USB peripherals could be whipping along at a much faster rate before long, with NEC’s announcement of their new uPD720171 Wireless USB PCI host controller.

NEC have taken the wraps off of the MultiSync EA261WM, a 26-inch desktop LCD monitor with WUXGA resolution. That means a full 1,920 x 1,200 resolution widescreen panel that, in the EA261WM’s case, boasts a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, 400 cd/m2 brightness and 5ms response time. Knocking Lenovo’s 22-inch WUXGA ThinkVision L220x Wide into the proverbial cocked-hat, the NEC display takes the top spot for high-resolution.
The NEC has developed a way to make TFT LCD panels able to feature shapes besides the average square or rectangle. Which is nice for those that would enjoy something a bit cuter, like a sweet little heart shape.
