Nouveau SpyderX Pro et Elite Datacolor

 

thoroughly revised version: the SpyderX. On the program: newsensor significantly more accurate and a priori no longer sensitive to the ravages of time, calibration time very clearly reduced (less than one minute to read color patches!), and taking into account the latest screen technologies to always and again improve the quality of screen calibration, regardless of their quality, age, etc.... And it's a real favorite!

DELL U4919DW


£1,195.00


Soon on sale...

 

And the most surprising thing is that its slab displays a very nice homogeneity and colors rather precisely. It's not an Eizo screen, of course, but it doesn't have the claims either.

And a nice surprise and a feat achieved by Dell even if it is not for everyone.

consistency. But in this new school year 2018, I am really pleasantly surprised by the four screens that Dell sent me.
While we obviously don't have to deal with Eizo panels, their price/quality ratio has become really good and this Dell P2419H is no exception. I also make it my new favorite under the symbolic bar of £200 to replace the Asus VC239H.

BenQ SW271

unworthy of a monitor just under £1,100. If you really want a cheap 27 inch 4K screen then you'll have to deal with it but it's true that then the precision of its colors and its ergonomics or its top connectivity will perhaps make you forget or relativize this big defect. Frankly, it also defends itself...



Monitor review : BenQ SW271

The technical features are really attractive: 4K, Adobe RGB, hardware calibration, top connectivity (USB-C) and flawless ergonomics! Yes, but there is one but: uniformity of its panel
