NEC 2490WUXi-BK $825 at

Price update:

I just bought one from for $825 & $56 2 day shipping.

I will let everyone know how it goes and if there is any caveot with the $825 price.

Yes, but those prices are for the NON-SVII 2490 (which doesn't come
with the EyeOne v2 monitor calibrator or the Spectraview software).

I ordered the LCD 2490 with SVII bundle from Provantage for about
$1250.. so that equates to getting the Monitor calibrator and
software for $150.. great deal, considering that NEC sells JUST the
software (no calibrator) for $169.

Amazon has it for $1,100.00 through Ritz Camera and $1,116 with free
shipping through Amazon.

You can't beat Amazons liberal return policy.

I have a 2490 on order with the SVII bundle. Basically they are out
of stock in this model, though I think they have the non-SV monitor
in stock. However, they expect evidently a shipment into their
distribution warehouse sometime next week (week of Oct 22) upon when
it would ship to me.. I'll let you know how it all goes.

If anyone that is reading this thread does buy a monitor from
Provantage, please post your experience here. The numerical rating of Provantage is rather good but
there is quite a mixture of good and bad experiences in the comments.
I would like to here from those with a recent purchase of a monitor.
