The NEC MultiSync LCD1765 appears massive, with its glassy black bezel measuring 1.5-inches all the way around. Making adjustments via the on-screen controls is simple. There are also five control buttons mounted on the back, on the right-hand side. While comfortable, the buttons would be a little easier to use if you could read their labels from the front--the labels are on the buttons themselves, not the bezel. Among units in the Top 10, the LCD1765 finished in the middle of the pack in our tests, earning a Very good in both graphics and text.
This is a solid performer; the well-organized, side-mounted controls don't distract from the images on the monitor--or from the large, handsome bezel.
