looking for new Monitor
Jun 25, 2011
Because there is no Monitor forum I post it here.
I am a professional digital illustrator working in Photoshop and 3D applications. In Photoshop I make my illustrations always in CMYK (ISO Coated V2). This is how I deliver my work to my clients who put my work in their designs. (I do packaging illustration work for commercial advertising agencies). I still work on CRT, but my beloved 24" Sony is dying. I need a new display. And I need a good one. I never work in AdobeRGB, 99% in CMYK. I am looking at 27inch size displays, very sharp quality. I calibrate with a Spyder3Pro.
I narrowed it down to these 27inch monitors;
Dell UltraSharp U2711
Nec MultiSync PA271W
The NEC is much more expensive. That is not really a big concern if this is the best choice for what I do, but do I need it for what I do? Feel free to give alternatives. Thanks allot!
