    I read a few reviews and they all say that stand is really huge so I hope you have desk space!

    This is the stand i'm looking at, $53 after shipping. A bit on the pricy side for just a stand...

    I looked at that one. In fact, I found a guy on CL locally with a couple for $20 each. However, it says it only supports up to 16lbs max. These monitors are 19+ lbs. I'd really like to just go with a triple-headed mount and make it nice and clean with maximum desk space. All the options there are crazy-spensive though and generally require a bolt-to-the-desk mechanism of some sort to stabilize with larger monitors.

    I got in on a similar deal for the NEC monitor with the ELO touchscreen through ebay a few months ago. The Touchscreen element itself is a 4mm thick glass on top of the actual LCD which kind of robs the clarity of the LCD, and makes images a bit dim as-well. Needless to say, I quickly opened up the monitor and removed the glass touchscreen portion, along with its controller board and USB cable. Reassembled the monitor back to its original state and havn't looked back since. The image clarity and sharpness is worlds better without that thick glass touchscreen in front of the screen. I also tracked down the original NEC stand for it which clicks into place, but any heavy duty VESA mount in 100x100mm or 200x100mm will work.

    Do you have a pic of just the touchscreen part or a link to show how to remove the touchscreen?

    It should. That is the one I linked to on the first page. It holds my 24" Elo just fine. It's kind of a pain to adjust though. Once you get it set right it works great.

    Any concerns with the size of the base as mentioned above? I have a pretty good sized desk, so I'm not too worried, but some made it sound abnormally large.

    It is big but not over powering in anyway. My desk is on the smaller side(4'Lx2.5'w) and it doesn't look out of place. The feet on it are flat and the bar is blocked out by the monitor so you don't even notice it. My keyboard sits on top of my desk because my pull out keyboard holder broke and I still have plenty of room.

    Picked up the stand today and it is 75x75 and 100x100 so looks like it will work with this monitor. The stand tilts, and pivots which is nice. Also the base rotates. The attaching plate is a quick release so you can attach the back plate to the monitor and snap it onto the arm. The height adjustment is spring weighted so the height can be changed on the fly. Comes with 4 4mm screws, power brick to power the builtin usb port as well. Overall looks quite nice, and the size IMO is just right for a 24" monitor.

    Received my 2 monitors. Extremely well packed and appear to be brand new. They are NEC Multisync 2490LCDWUXi monitors with an additional "One World Touch" Model # LM2411-103NBAE. The drivers on oneworldtouch.com are listed for Windows 7 32/64. Just wondered if anyone has used them with Win8. If so, did you have to run in Win 7 compatibility mode. The monitors are quite heavy and actually weigh 24lb 7oz each. They are also 4" thick. Have not mounted to a base yet as the mounting holds require a bolt size that I don't seem to have. There was no mounting hardware supplied. It has bolt patterns for 75x75mm and 100x100mm mounts. In fact it has 3 sets of them across the back so they could be spaced in 2X or 3x spreads. Using the outer mounting points would appear to place a lot of stress on the mounting plates on a triple mount, it seems to me. I will post my results after trying them later today. These things are built like tanks and seem extremely rugged. This Nec monitor without the Touch screen addition sold on NE for $1100 and had a 5 star rating. They are still available today on Overstock for $1187. We'll see how they are now! Mine arrived for $153 each.

    Thanks for the update. Mine should show up tomorrow. I'm pretty excited because my first computer monitor was an NEC Multisync 3D (14" CRT) and I haven't had any NEC monitors since.

    Though... not really sure what I'm going to do with it...

    Well, after firing this monitor up and using it for about an hour I think it is the sharpest monitor I have ever seen. Certainly it is the sharpest I have ever owned. Comparing it to my Dell UltraSharp 24" it is clearly superior. I have made no adjustments as yet, just using as it came out of the box. Wow.
    A review of the monitor can be found here:

    http://www.manualowl.com/m/NEC/LCD2490WUXI-BK/Manual/195093.

    The manual can be downloaded free here:

    http://www.manualowl.com/p/NEC/LCD2490WUXI-BK/Manual/19596

    The touch Drivers work perfectly with Windows 8, in my limited trial anyway. The install is so slow that it looked like it was not working.. went to 99% almost instantly and stayed there for a long, long time before showing 100%. Was pretty slow to finish after that but finally did and it works perfectly. Ran the calibration in the Touch control panel and it is spot on.
    Very impressed and the price is crazy amazing. Glad I bought 2 of them.

    Just got mine. Just realized that none of my stands will work. I have to see if my VESA arm will handle the weight.

    [edit] Nope

    I got my stand today, I went with the monoprice one:
    http://www.monoprice.com/products/p...=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5402&seq=1&format=2

    I like it a lot because it frees up a lot of space on my desk. I had to use the included bolt instead of the knob for the monitor otherwise it wouldn't stay vertical.


    Other than the issue I have with what looks like banding on the extreme right side of the monitor I am happy, especially for the price.

    Can you take a picture of what you mean? I'm thinking about getting that arm as well.

    lol I didn't read your whole post:eek:

    The package comes with either the knob or the bolt, I used the bolt.

    I'll leave this here anyway.

    It's barely noticeable since it's usually hidden by the scroll bar and it's not visible when the screen is black (for movies).

    Did you get this installed and working with your LCD? Just curious if you like it and if it holds the weight ok...

    you guys should really consider removing the touchscreen, it is more of a hinderance to the actual quality of the image than useful for anything else.

    With that said, removal is very easy. take the plastic back case and front bezel off. The glass touchscreen is double side taped to the front of the screen. Remove the front glass. and the LCD screen can then be moved up flush to the top of the screen case by replacing the tiny screws that go all along the frame of the screen to the higher notch on the case.

    This is very easy to do, and very much self explanatory once the plastic bezel and back cover is taken off.

    Trust me, if you are impressed with the image quality of this screen, wait till you see it with the glass screen removed!!

    Can someone post a picture of the stand in proportion to their desk?

    Which stand did you want pictures for? Quite a few have been mentioned so far.

    So I tried the stand from my work NEC e222w while I wait for the Monoprice ones to be delivered... It's a perfect fit... but the weight of the panel causes it to slide right down to the bottom, tilt forward, and precariously lean as if it'll tip any moment. Guess I'll wait for the others :'(
