    • Are you planning to edit HDR content? Because you're paying that money for the 1000 nits brightness of HDR10.

      If not or if that's not your biggest concern there are cheaper while still color accurate options out there.

      As for ultra wides they're great for productivity as well as gaming. I can't comment on video editing too much but at least for photo work I prefer multiple monitors. Also the curve of most ultrawides might be an issue but that's personal preference.

    • Speaking only of photo editing, accuracy is better than size.

      Of course, it is possible to over-obsess on accuracy but it would be better to get a smaller monitor with accuracy than a large monitor that has calibration issues.

    • Good topic! In the back of my mind (wait is that my adsense or amazon, I forget) I have had this for quite a while...

    • hey Chris, I recently wrote a review for BenQ SW321C, which is around $2K USD. I moved from an MSI laptop with ~60% Adobe RGB coverage and still it was a huge move. Here is the review.


      With all that said, after talking to BenQ guys, they said there's no difference in colour accuracy between this model and some other 27" model (I think it was SW271), which also has 99% Adobe RGB. And if it's just for photo editing, I'd get that 27" one for about what you were after. Not so sure about video editing as I'm not doing that. Hope this helps.
