I'm building a new desktop just to handle my photo editing. I'm putting all the good stuff into it (SSD's, i7, etc. etc.). However, there are so many good monitors out there.
What's best? What do you all use and love? Whatever I use will be calibrated - I just want suggestions for specific models. I'm guessing ISP, right?
Can you all help?
Thanks in advance.
Dell UP2414Q has UHD, programmable screen uniformity compensation, programmable internal high bit LUT, very wide gamut, IPS, uses advanced variable direct current driven backlight powering of the LEDs and does not use PWM (pulse width modulation to flicker the backlight in order to change the intensity as many screens do), very good price for UHD now.
Dell is coming out with a 27" 14MP beyond UHD monitor very soon. I imagine it will be similar to the above model otherwise. The price is steep though and might take a year to come down.
I personally upgraded from a NEC PA241W to the Dell UP2414Q. The Dell calibrates (much more slowly and more of a pain, I used a mix of the built-in software for calibration and then Argyl for profiling) fully as precisely and accurately as the NEC did and it has the newer, less grainy panel type. The PA NEC do have unlimited profiles while the Dell forces you to use internal storage for profiles only and they give you just a few bytes of storage (crazy in this day and age) so you can only store profiles for miniDP connector and two more for the DP connector for a total of four. However the only UHD Nec monitors out now are EA series and they only let you program the native gamut mode, you can't reprogram the sRGB simulation at all so it ends up giving a far less accurate tone curve than the Dell does for sRGB + sRGB TRC or sRGB + Gamma 2.2.
The UHD is astonishing. I can't stress enough how much better UHD/4k looks than the lower res 2560x or HD monitors do.
