    Bottom Line: A huge monitor which is definitely nice, but it does have a couple flaws...Plus there is no DVI support.

    XtraView & Portrait Mode

    If you're like me, you were probably too lazy to read the features page to see the feature called XtraView. If you didn't read it, here's a re-cap:

    XtraView Wide Viewing Angle Technology: Allows the user to be able to see the monitor from any angle (170 degrees) from any orientation - Portrait or Landscape. Provides full 170 degrees viewing angles from either up, down, left or right.

    Basically a lot of LCD screens have this problem of not being able to see what's on the screen at any angles other then straight…You've probably had this problem when using a laptop. XtraView technology changes all this…I could see the entire screens contents at any angle I looked at. Check out these shots below:

    Portrait mode is a feature that I found very useful with the 2110 because of the wide screen it has. Check out how tall the monitor is when put in portrait mode:

    Portrait mode is enabled through a software called Pivot Pro which is bundled with the monitor (the software by itself costs about $50). The machine we tested the 2110 was running Microsoft Windows XP Professional, and the version of Pivot Pro NEC provided with us did not work. Fortunately a quick look at the Pivot Pro website enabled us to download a free upgrade of the software and we had no problems afterwards. The software is really great and works easily. You can pivot your screen by doing one of the three things:

    • Clicking the icon in the taskbar
    • Right clicking the desktop
    • Holding down Ctrl+Shift+R

    Here's a couple screenshots of the menu's from the software:
