Re: NEC street price

There is one issue I would like your take on. On your web site you
list an estimated street price of $1299. However, most sites are
listing this at $1679 or thereabouts. Why the big difference? And I
am talking about NEC "resellers" you link to from your site. Thanks
for your help and your info.

There is alot of boggus pricing on these NEC monitors out there with
people quoting low and misrepreresented pricing. The street price of
the NEC 2690 is $1600. Consider the Planar PX 2611W which is
basically the same thing without all the problems for @$850.

There was a price reduction on the 2690 within the past month or so ... prior to that it was $1600+, now it is around $1200. I purchased mine from Ritz Camera's web site for $1225 (includes shipping, this was the final/total price).

I think that if you look carefully, you will see that the 2690 has many capabilities that the Planar does not. The ability to use Spectraview II software to do hardware calibration is worth the difference alone.
