For Christmas a few years back we got him a Pantone Huey to pull the colors in. Without you calibrating you could be off in color. There are great monitors but without a calibration device, you're never sure.
Hello all, I could really use some help. I'm an independent filmmaker, composer, and graphic designer - and I need a new work display.
Current system | Custom Hackintosh:
WindForce OC GTX 770 2GB
I'm on a bit of a budget, $325 max. I need a new monitor that has enough room to edit and design comfortably while providing accurate color for color grading. Coming from 23" Acer H236HLbi, then an 25" LG Ultrawide, which I returned because it was too small vertically.
So far I've considered the following:
Dell U2415 24" - Factory tuned(?), 16:10, 1920x1200, 99% sRGB, IPS panel
USED* Asus PA248Q 24.1" - Factory calibrated, 16:10 aspect ratio, 1920x1200, 100% sRGB colorspace, AH-IPS panel
USED* Asus PB278Q 27" - Factory tuned(?), 16:9, 2560x1440, 100% sRGB, PLS panel
USED* Asus PB298Q 29" Ultrawide - Factory tuned, 21:9, 2560x1080, 100 sRGB, IPS panel
*Going to buy used from B&H, prices are good, only cosmetic blemishes on panel chassis
Basically I'm going to get an Asus PA or PB series. My only issue is which one...
PA248Q because it's factory calibrated and has USB ports, etc.? Potentially not enough working space
PB278Q because of increased horizontal and vertical real estate, much higher resolution. Potentially less accurate color, not as much horizontal workspace as 29"
PB298Q because of most horizontal workspace, lower resolution, potentially less accurate color.
I'm very torn. Could really use some opinions or insights.
