Screen monitor recommendations?
11 months ago

Hi,

I have a mediocre Samsung T220P monitor with pretty bad colors and absolutely terrible viewing angles.

I also have an iPad Retina (4th gen), whose screen I absolutely love. I transferred all my Lightroom images to the iPad today and was shocked how contrasty they looked on the iPad and how dull they looked on my computer monitor.

I read the iPad Retina screen review by DisplayMate and they say it's an excellent display with coverage of 99% of the gamut range (or whatever it's called) and excellent factory calibration.

For anyone having an iPad with a Retina display (either 3rd or 4th gen) and who also has access to a properly calibrated, IPS-panel computer monitor, can you confirm or refute the claim that the iPad indeed produces accurate, reliable colors?

If it does that, are there computer monitors that won't cost like a good lens that do that as nearly as good?

Unfortunately, calibrating my current monitor is out of the question as the side panel with all those buttons doesn't work - I had to internally disconnect it from the panel in order to stop the monitor from randomly turning off (the side panel was randomly sending a "turn off" signal or something).

Thank you.
