how well is is working out ?


Do you keep it near the computer to help with editing ?

I use it as my computer monitor, full time.

Did it end up in another room just for displaying photos full time ?


Did it end up being "just" a TV which you use once in a blue moon to look at some photos ?


Did you buy a cheapie and properly adjusted, found it more than good enough or should you have spent more ?


If you spent a bomb, was it worth it ?

Well, sort of.  The one I use on my computer is a $299 40" Samsung.  But my display ones are Vizio P-series, which are quite a lot higher-end.

Just interested in usage experiences.
FWIW, we can buy 60" of 4K here for OZ $600, i'm sure the motion is rubbish, but people seem to be able to get the colour about right; why spend more for stills ?

Dynamic range.  I'm surprised how the Vizio's shine in this area.  The brights are stunningly bright and the blacks are dark and smooth compared to the cheapie.
