Monitor choice (~1k€, 1.2k€ max.)


I am looking for a new monitor.

Must have:

  • 27" minimum
  • 2560*1440px minimum
  • hardware calibration (internal 3D-LUT)
  • good viewing angles (although not critical, I will NOT have somebody looking over my shoulder)
  • good panel uniformity
  • smooth gradient reproduction

Good to have:

  • "4K" / UltraHD resolution
  • good Adobe RGB coverage
  • good DCI-P3 coverage
  • HDR (HLG and/or PQ)
  • hood

Important note: I am familiar with color management and wide gamut monitors. I own an X-Rite i1Display Pro colorimeter.


  • target: less than 1000€
  • maximum 1200€

Important note: second hand/refurb monitors are OK


  • photo editing (90%)
  • video editing (10%)

I was considering:

  • BenQ SW271 (about 1000€ refurb from rusted seller)
  • BenQ SW320
  • Dell UP3216Q

But I am open to any other suggestion!
