Is this a good monitor for graphics?

Just purchased a used MacBook Pro to replace my 6 year old iMac.

Your comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

NEC EA273WM-BK 27" MultiSync EA LCD Monitor

Hi,

Though it's a large screen, it's a TN screen - it won't be good for graphics.  Poor angle of view and thousands - not millions - of colors.  The way to tell and 8bit screen (millions) from a 6 bit screen (thousands ) is the specs for the former will say 16.7 million colors - the latter will fudge.  TN no go.

With NEC If the monitors can accept spectraviu they are the pro graphics level.

On the nec refurb site I see this

It's smaller but will have a much better screen.  If you can spring for the spectraview and maybe a used optix xr ( or budget allowing - the new I1 - eye one)- you'll be doing very well.  I'd also check amazon for refurbed professional NECs - you might find them cheaper and they all come from the same warehouse (don't ask how I know).  The best NECs are really the best.

Good luck.
