Re: Estimated "Street" price from NEC..

A number of outfits (Amazon, Buy, Provantage) sell for less than the
$1299 quoted by NEC's own site. However, it is odd/strange that
there are also resellers with much higher prices -- who are either
not up to speed with keeping their sites updated, or are just trying
to rip off unsuspecting folks..

Many people try and throw around these artifically low, or "special"
prices for the NEC 2690 when the street price is really $1600. The
Planar is is widely available from reputable dealers in the $850-$925
range. Why pay $750 more for the same thing?

I think it's that the $1300 versions are just the LCD2690WUXi, where as when you pay closer to $1500~1600 you're getting the LCD2690WUXi-SV, which comes with Spectraview and a colorimeter (NEC co-branded GretagMacbeth, I think). Of course, some stores will sell a non-SV model for $1600, so just avoid them.

Also, I don't think the Planar pivots to portrait... Maybe not a big deal to most, but pivoting could be handy for editing portrait-aspect photos.

I skimmed through a review of the Planar PX2611W just now... Don't know how reliable the source* was, but it didn't get a very good review.
