Your assumptions are correct. Get the 2690, the wide gamut is really
nice. sRGB mode is not very good. But, stay with color managed
applications and you will be able to get everything important right.
Foxfire v3 is what really makes the 2690 viable for heavy web users
(just make sure you know how to enable color management in Foxfire v3
before you get the 2690).

I ran with a dual monitor setup 2490 and 2690 for several days. The
sRGB material in color managed apps matchs the sRGB content on the


When you say "sRGB mode is not very good", do you mean not very good
for photo accuracy, or not very good for anything? Like, will it
still be about the same as your average non-calibrated LCD and thus
fine for all non-photo related tasks, or is it worse than a standard

I mean the color is not going to be very accurate ... I measured the color as having a deltaE of 3.4. But, many individual colors were up around a deltaE of 6+. This is not great color. I guess you could say it was like a uncalibrated display. I don't think many 2690 owners use this mode. Color is so nice on the 2690 and you get so used to high quality color that when you switch to sRGB you can really see that it is not doing well. But, it is usable.
