Closing thoughts

Four MUSTs for a reference universal monitor:
#1. Photographic quality picture with no issues (color shifting, washout, etc.).
#2. At least two digital inputs with 1080p support (to provide a quality connection with PC and an external device simultaneously).
#3. Capability to reduce eye strain (autobrightness and range of brightness controls, legible dot pitch, ergonomics).
#4. Responsiveness is suitable for multimedia use.
Those are comprehensive assessment criteria to see how close to perfection is a monitor.

The NEC 3090WQXi meets all those requirements with no problem.
This is definitely world’s #1 universal monitor in 30” sector.
Unfortunately 3090 hasn’t reached 2490/2690 outstanding panel qualities. It presumably lacks just one thing – 2490 polarizer. Also considering the size of this monitor, a hood as an accessory item would be helpful. Attention should be paid to backlight uniformity - it may differ from unit to unit.


Although in general 3090 still yields a little to its mighty 2490/2690 brothers, it beats everything else in 30” area.
