    CHICAGO, May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- NEC Display Solutions of America, the
 leading stand-alone provider of flat panel desktop displays, today announced
 their ranking as the #1 best-selling stand-alone LCD monitor provider in the
 U.S. in 2004 according to iSuppli's quarterly monitor reports.

 market in 2004, NEC maintained their top ranking by introducing competitively
 priced new lines of AccuSync and MultiSync branded desktop displays,
 delivering productivity-enhancing technologies and maintaining an industry
 leading level of quality and reliability.  To further nurture the loyalty of
 its customers and channel partners, the company also expanded its service
 programs and environmental initiatives to help reduce support costs and
 provide comprehensive e-waste recycling solutions.
     "Our customers are loyal to NEC LCD desktop monitors because they deliver
 excellent front-of-screen performance, unparalleled reliability and a total
 cost of ownership that ranks among the lowest in the industry," said Andres
 Maldonado, NEC Display Solutions Director of Product Marketing.  "NEC
 understands that in order to maintain this loyalty year-after-year we must
 strive to continuously innovate by developing products and programs that
 further enhance our customers' visual experiences."
     A significant factor in NEC's achievement was their strong relationship
 with channel partners. "We could not have accomplished what we did last year
 without the help of our retail, distribution and reseller partners," said
 Clark Brown, NEC Display Solutions Vice President of Sales. "They were and
 will continue to be a critical component to our success."
