Good Reliable Computer Flat Screen Monitor - NEC MultiSync LCD 1550 V

Updated on April 22, 2011


I've been using the NEC MultiSync  LCD 1550 V flat computer flat screen monitor for years now.  It runs about 8 -10 hours per day, 5 days a week.  The best way I can describe my usage is to say that I use the computer screen A LOT.

I certainly use this screen enough to justify writing the best product review I can on the NEC MultiSync LCD 1550 V.  I'll warn you upfront that I am not an IT specialist or a computer authority.  I like to think (or hope :-), that any expertise or insight I can give you on this screens comes directly from my experience as an end user.

Please check out my product review below on the NEC MultiSync LCD 1550 V computer screen.  I hope you find it helpful.

The Look

The look of the NEC MultiSync LCD 1550 V is very professional looking but could also hold it's own in less office-like environments (such as a sales counter or shop office, etc). My own screen is black in color and looks really good.

The Feel

My screen has never required any kind of adjustment though there are controls to do this.  There is an auto adjust no-touch feature on this screen that I suspect is the reason I've done virtually no adjustments.

All of the screen controls such as exit, control, adjust, next, reset and the on/off button are very accessible on the low-front portion of the screen.  The buttons are not at all distracting but are accessible if you ever needed to use them.  I have only used the on off button which, of course is very easy to use and very soft, yet durable to the touch.  Works just fine after all these years.

The Size

The 15" screen fits well on any desk surface.  Is not in the way but is still completely readable. The width of the screen is about 2 1/2 inches. The base / stand measures about  6 1/4" wide x 6 1/4" deep x  3 1/4" h and is just the right size.

The Performance

The screen is a 15" screen and suits me fine. Not the hugest computer monitor by screen-fanatic standards but I'm fine with it.

The 1024 x 768 resolution works just fine and is practical enough for the work environment I am in. I'm sure you could invest in other more expensive screens with higher resolution, but the 1024 x 768 does the trick for me.  Videos and images look fine.   That said, since it is a work computer screen, I have never viewed streaming movies on the NEC MultiSync LCD 1550 V.  I suspect films / DVD's would look fine (well, fine considering I'd be watching a big screen flick on a 15" screen).

I've never had a service issue with this screen.

I never have glare issues or other related problems.


That ends my product review of the NEC MultiSync LCD 1550 V.   I included some specs below that I looked up.  As always, don't take my word on the specs below. If you are purchasing the NEC MultiSync LCD 1550V from someone or buying online, be sure to review the specifications closely to be sure the purchase is right for you.  

1024 x 768 resolution

0.3-millimeter dot pitch, 300:1 contrast ratio

Very narrow, only 2.4 inches thick

Easy plug-and-play operation

No Touch Auto Adjust feature; easy to use on-screen display controls

To Sum Up

The NEC MultiSync LCD 1550V is a good, affordable computer monitor.  It is very suited for an office environment and would work well at home too.
