The NEC AccuSync 700 has been my primary display at work for the past year or so. Prior to this one, I was assigned several used monitors for my desk, but they always gave me problems in a short period of time. After the last failure, I finally put in a specific request for a new monitor and was assigned this one.

The monitor itself has a 17 inch CRT screen and a black plastic housing, and there are several buttons on the front panel to control the power and the various adjustments that the monitor offers. The screen itself is bright and offers good color, and it also seems to have some sort of anti-glare coating on it. This is especially nice for me because my office has several large windows behind the desk, and the afternoon sun can sometimes get pretty bright.

Since I've had this monitor, I've used it for at least eight hours every day to perform everything from software testing to graphic design, and I haven't had any problems with ghosting or anything like that. The only minor issue I've noticed is that it sometimes lets out a high-pitched whining noise when the screen displays a great deal of the color white. This only happens on occasion, though, and can usually be corrected by turning the power off and back on.

So far, out of all of the monitors I've had at work, this one has been the best. I'm still trying to convince my boss that I need a nice, big LCD flat screen monitor, but until he finally gives in to that request, I'll be happy to continue to use the NEC.
