This is a pro-level 2560x1440, 27-inch IPS dis­play. You cer­tainly pay for its ca­pa­bil­i­ties. It can pivot and swivel, and can be cal­i­brated us­ing the in­cluded ColorNav­i­ga­tor soft­ware and a col­orime­ter. Colour re­pro­duc­tion is ter­rific. You can set the mon­i­tor to sev­eral modes, and ad­just the bright­ness up to 300 can­de­las per square me­tre. There are Dis­playPort, HDMI and DVI in­puts, plus two USB ports.

The down­side is two-fold: this mon­i­tor is re­mark­ably ex­pen­sive, it looks ex­tremely old fash­ioned, and it’s chunky (it weighs 13kg). We also dis­liked the ba­sic menu sys­tem.

Pros: Ex­cel­lent for keep­ing colours con­sis­tent.

Cons: Ex­pen­sive and ugly, its looks don’t match its price.

We say: For the ac­tual process of edit­ing, it can’t be faulted.

Once this mon­i­tor is cal­i­brated, a built-in self­cor­rec­tion sen­sor will check and ad­just it pe­ri­od­i­cally
