For those out there who like their resolution huge and their colors deep, ViewSonic has the VP2780-4K.
This is a mid-priced monitor — it costs about $1,000 — aimed at professionals who are cost-conscious but need the color-accuracy for their clients. And it looks like, at a reasonable glance, that it delivers the goods.
Each monitor is tested before it is shipped, and my monitor came with its calibration grade report ranking its sRGB and Native colors at an average Delta-E less than or equal to 2 ( Delta-E being the distance between two colors, 1.0 being the lowest number then human eye can perceive). Not too shabby. This means that my monitor is tested at near the targeted 100 percent of sRGB’s color range. ViewSonic also states that the monitor will hit 80 percent of the AdobeRGB gamut. Along with the wide color, ViewSonic has a t h r e e - yea r warranty that covers any dead pixels.
The display itself is crisp through its matte, anti-glare LCD surface surrounded by the thin 22mm bezel. There is no flicker as it displays 3,840 by 2,160 resolution driven through the DisplayPort jack by an NVidia K5200. Additional inputs include another DisplayPort, but mini-size to Apple specs, plus an HDMI 2.0 jack (also supporting 60mHz refresh at 4K), and a couple more MHL jacks.
The mount is not the most robust piece I’ve ever seen, but the monitor is so light that it doesn’t require much.
The primary target — the color-grade specialists — I feel should be reasonably happy. And the facilities will be happy because compositors will be able to have color-accurate monitors without blowing the budget.
