Monitors, which one?

Hi I'm looking to upgrade my monitor but have a budget.

Have been looking into the Dell UltraSharp U2713H 27" Monitor with PremierColor but have noticed this recently on the market with similar specs for less than half the price.

Has anyone tried this one in the link?

Cheers

U2713h is a 10bit, wide gamut monitor targeting a professional serious enthusiast section of the market while the other one looks like an 8bit standard gamut monitor targeting mainstream consumers looking for a large display.  Whether the different is practically significant for any given user, is a personal matter. Brand recognition and reputation also probably plays a part in the price difference.

Thanks all for the input. It will either be the Dell or LG.

Hi,

I'm also interested in upgrading my monitor.

Will IPS make a big difference and do they still need to be calibrated with Munki or one of the other calibration software?

Thanks,

Geoff

Yes, IPS is better and PLS is good too, all monitors need calibration.
